The Dawn of Expectation

(p.71) Afterword
Dialogue of Love

Walter Cardinal Kasper

Fordham University Press

Fifty years after the historic meeting between Pope Paul VI and Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras on 5–6 January 1964, the beginning of a new and promising era for the Roman and Constantinople Churches is now celebrated. The challenges for this meeting have been met and overcome. It was necessary to break the silence and differences of the past and move toward reconciliation and forgiveness. Although there were many instances of failure, there has always been the sharing of the lessons of the Gospel. This is true still in May 2014. Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew were able to meet in the holy city of Jerusalem. This meeting advanced fraternal understanding, cooperation, and dialogue; yet it respects and honors the differences in the traditions being practiced by both Churches. It is hoped that in this meeting, both Churches will serve as credible witnesses toward unity and peace.
