      Patriarch's Paris visit seen as step to meeting with Pope

      Paris (ENI). Leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church say they hope a visit by
      Moscow Patriarch Alexei II to predominantly Roman Catholic France will help
      promote links with the Vatican, and may pave the way to a meeting with Pope
      Benedict XVI. "This visit is meant as another step in developing cooperation
      between Orthodox and Catholics, which is much needed when it comes to
      protecting and promoting traditional Christian values," Patriarch Alexei
      told journalists during his 2-4 October visit to Paris. Metropolitan Kirill,
      who heads the Moscow Patriarchate's department of external church affairs,
      said during the visit that there could be a meeting between Alexei and
      Benedict, "at a place where each of them feels comfortable". Still, the
      Moscow Patriarchate says a number of issues need to be resolved before a
      meeting can take place. [366 words, ENI-07-0772]
