Pope Francis, Bartholomew I and the Archbishop Hieronymos with migrants in Lesbos on 14 or 15 April. Maybe…

Lesbos3

The Vatican press office said that the idea is being considered, but does not confirm dates or details. The Pope has been invited by the Greek-Orthodox Synod and the Greek president. Both Orthodox primate of Greece Hieronymos and Bartholomew, confirm their presence on Lesbos.

Vatican City (AsiaNews,  04/06/2016) – Pope Francis could accompany the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I and the Orthodox primate of Greece Archbishop Hieronymos, on a visit to migrants and refugees on the island of Lesbos.

The director of the Vatican press office, Fr. Federico Lombardi, said that the Pope wishes to make this visit, but he cannot confirm dates or details.

What we know for now is that the Greek Orthodox Church has expressed the wish that Pope Francis visit the island where hundreds of thousands of migrants have been herded together.  Most of them are from the Middle East and Africa and are waiting to enter Europe or be returned to Turkey or their homeland, according to an agreement drawn up between the EU and Turkey.

A statement from the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople confirmed that the Pope, Hieronymus and Bartholomew will visit Lesbos “in the very near future.” The Greek site Romfea.gr instead reports that the Pope will certainly be present and that the visit will take place at the end of next week, with the presence of the Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras.

The visit has also made headlines in Greek media who point to a Greek Orthodox Synod document, which speaks of Pope Francis’s wishes and the visit, as well as the invitation to the pontiff by the Greek president.

Unofficial Greek government sources say that the visit should take place on 14-15 April and should last a few hours.

A visit by Pope Francis to Lesbos, along with the patriarch and primate would be a very strong gesture to push the European Union to change its policy towards migrants. According to Orthodox observers, a meeting of the Pope with the Primate and Bartholomew would also give help focus attention on the Great Orthodox Synod, scheduled for June 16 to 27 next in Crete.

San Daniele Comboni (1831-1881)

COMBONIANUM

Combonianum è stato una pubblicazione interna di condivisione sul carisma di Comboni. Assegnando questo nome al blog, ho voluto far rivivere questo titolo, ricco di storia e patrimonio carismatico.
Il sottotitolo Spiritualità e Missione vuole precisare l’obiettivo del blog: promuovere una spiritualità missionaria.

Combonianum was an internal publication of sharing on Comboni’s charism. By assigning this name to the blog, I wanted to revive this title, rich in history and charismatic heritage.
The subtitle
Spirituality and Mission wants to specify the goal of the blog: to promote a missionary spirituality.

Sono un comboniano affetto da Sla. Ho aperto e continuo a curare questo blog (tramite il puntatore oculare), animato dal desiderio di rimanere in contatto con la vita del mondo e della Chiesa, e di proseguire così il mio piccolo servizio alla missione.
I miei interessi: tematiche missionarie, spiritualità (ho lavorato nella formazione) e temi biblici (ho fatto teologia biblica alla PUG di Roma)

I am a Comboni missionary with ALS. I opened and continue to curate this blog (through the eye pointer), animated by the desire to stay in touch with the life of the world and of the Church, and thus continue my small service to the mission.
My interests: missionary themes, spirituality (I was in charge of formation) and biblical themes (I studied biblical theology at the PUG in Rome)
