Pope Francis who is visiting Cyprus on Friday spoke of reconciliation between the Catholic and the Orthodox Church during his visit with Archbishop Chrysostomos and the Holy Synod in Nicosia.

“It is my heartfelt hope that there will be increased opportunities for encounter, for coming to know one another better, for eliminating preconceptions, and for listening with docility to our respective experiences of faith. This will prove for each of us an exhortation and incentive to do better, and bring a spiritual fruit of consolation,” Francis said.

He said both Churches had a common apostolic origin: St Paul traversed Cyprus and went on to Rome, he said.
