      On the second day of his visit, Jan. 5, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew held a press conference where he discussed a wide range of issues relating to the Patriarchate and announced a visit to the Phanar by Pope Benedict XVI in the near future.

      With Archbishop Demetrios translating his remarks, the Patriarch explained that, in addition to his pastoral duties, he has two other priorities, ³rapprochement among people: and ³ecological issues.² ... ... ...

      The Patriarch said he seeks to make a contribution ³to the lessening of tensions, to promote reconciliation, helping to eliminate terrorism² and seeking a rapprochement of religions to bring about ³the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth.²
