Orthodox Patriarch to attend Inaugural Mass for Pope Francis!

Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople has announced that he plans to attend the inaugural Mass of Pope Francis on March 19.

The appearance by the Ecumenical Patriarch — the “first among equals” of all the world’s Orthodox leaders — is an unprecedented gesture. The Patriarch of Constantinople has not attended a papal installation since 1054, when Constantinople split from Rome.

I cannot overemphasize the importance of this news!
