The Russian Orthodox Church still dreams of holding a meeting between Kirill and Pope Francis this year
This is reported by Blagovest-info.
"The meeting, as I hope, will take place this year. This will be a personal meeting," Metropolitan Hilarion said on the Church and Peace TV show.
On March 9, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin stated that a possible meeting between Patriarch Kirill and the Pope is now unlikely, in particular, because of Kirill's statements about the situation in Ukraine.
