VATICAN - INDIA - Pope together with Syro-Malankara Orthodox to face the challenges of our time [AN]

Francis receives the primate of the India-based Church, which has 2.5 million members. Since 1990, a mixed commission “has brought us to significant steps on themes such as the common use of buildings of worship and cemeteries, the mutual concession of spiritual and even liturgical resources in specific pastoral situations, and the necessity to identify new forms of collaboration when faced with growing social and religious challenges.”
