Pope Benedict XVI and Eastern churches
Pope visits Bari, hopes to end rift with Orthodox churches
His first trip as Pope, to the Italian city where St Nicholas’ body is enshrined. Last Sunday the Russian Orthodox Church celebrated the feast-day of the moving of his relics there; the Greeks didn’t... because it happened after 1054 and the Russian Church was still in communion with Rome. (Bishops from Kiev were in Bari for the transfer.)

Слава Богу!
