Worthy Christian News » Pope concludes first day in Israel with visit to Jerusalem

Pope Francis arrived on Sunday evening at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, where he was scheduled to meet with the spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I.

Key Excerpts

"Therefore I renew the call of Benedict XVI in this place: the right of of existence for the State of Israel to be recognized universally, the right to live in peace and security in recognized borders by the international community.

"At the same time, the rights of the Palestinians to a sovereign homeland, to life with dignity and freedom of movement should be recognized. We hope that the two state solutions will become reality and will not remain a dream." – Pope Francis (5/25/2014)
