Historic meeting between Pope Francis and Patriarh Kirill will happen soon in Cuba


“The situation in the Middle East, in northern and central Africa and in some other regions where extremists are perpetrating genocide of Christians, requires immediate action and even closer cooperation between Christian churches.In the current tragic situation, we need to put aside internal disagreements and join efforts to save Christianity in the regions where it is subjected to most severe persecution,” Metropolitan Hilarion, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church’s Foreign Relations Department said. The meeting has been in preparation for two decades and both Moscow and the Vatican agreed that some neutral country would be most suited for it. Francis will fly to Cuba before traveling on to Mexico for a six-day tour of the country. Patriarch Kirill is scheduled to arrive next Thursday in Havana for an 11-day tour of South America.
