Meeting of Pope and Russian Patriarch Is Doable; Russian Church: Will Occur When It's Appropriate

The Interfax-Religion website reports today (February 17, 2011) that a meeting between the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia and the Pope will occur when there are appropriate conditions for it, according to the Moscow Patriarchate.

"The Russian Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church maintain a regime of constant communication and consultations at various levels," the Moscow Patriarchate said.

Currently, a meeting between Pope Benedict and Patriarch Kirill appears to be more likely than ever.

A formal invitation to the Pope to visit Russia has not yet occurred, although it is expected to happen in the near future.
