Joint Declaration of Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow

Discover, in this document, the joint Declaration of Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow during the meeting of the Holiness Pope Francis with his holiness Kirill, Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia on February 12th  (Apostolic Journey of His Holiness Pope Francis to Mexico).

“We are not competitors but brothers, and this concept must guide all our mutual actions as well as those directed to the outside world. We urge Catholics and Orthodox in all countries to learn to live together in peace and love, and to be “in harmony with one another” (Rm 15:5). Consequently, it cannot be accepted that disloyal means be used to incite believers to pass from one Church to another, denying them their religious freedom and their traditions. We are called upon to put into practice the precept of the apostle Paul: “Thus I aspire to proclaim the gospel not where Christ has already been named, so that I do not build on another’s foundation” (Rm 15:20).”
