Pope Francis Middle East Trip

  • Aired: 05/23/2014
  • 08:49
  • Rating: NR
The pope's pilgrimage is intended on one level to commemorate the 1964 meeting between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras that ended a thousand years of estrangement between Eastern and Western Christianity. But there are other agendas as well: interfaith dialogue, the Middle East peace process, and the diminishing Christian presence in the Holy Land.
