The head of the Patriarchate of Constantinople prayed together with representatives of the Roman Catholic Church during an ecumenical prayer service in Rome.

On October 19, 2020, in the Roman Catholic Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, an Ecumenical prayer was held in the presence of the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, who spoke appropriately, reports fanarion.blogspot.com.

The video and photographs posted on the website show that the head of the Phanar stands in the altar of the temple on a special dais but without liturgical vestments.

However, it was Patriarch Bartholomew who began the prayer service, exclaiming “In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,” and at the end, together with the Catholic clergy and the laity present, he read the prayer “Our Father” and ended the prayer service with an exclamation in Greek: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all."

As reported earlier, Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople was going to Rome to participate in an interfaith meeting.
