Pope, Patriarch Bartholomew to Visit Greece: Patriarchate

Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, spiritual leader of the Orthodox Church, will visit the Greek island of Lesbos soon to “meet with and support the refugees there,” Bartholomew’s office said in a statement.

The statement on the patriarchate’s website said the visit would encourage the refugees and inspire “appropriate actions for the protection of the afflicted Christian communities as well as the proper response to the critical refugee situation.”
