      The head of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, Cardinal Kurt Koch in April will go to Russia to deepen ecumenical relations with the ROC

      ________________________________

      The head of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, Cardinal Kurt Koch in April will come to Moscow to deepen ecumenical relations, he personally announced in an interview with Vatican Radio March 23. According to the prelate, the relationship between the Catholic Church and the ROC have improved, but further steps are needed. "Relations between Moscow and Rome, no doubt, are better than in the past, although some issues still remain open and from Moscow there are few signals of readiness for a meeting between Patriarch Kirill and Pope Francis. But everything will depend on whether ecumenical relations and dialogue can be deepened. And, of course, my visit to St. Petersburg and Moscow in late April will serve the purpose of implementing the next steps ", - said Cardinal Koch.
