Kondrusiewicz About Pope’s Visit: There Is a Certain Agreement With Orthodox Church


Metropolitan Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz pointed out at the press conference on 31 March that the visit to Belarus of Pietro Parolin, the Secretary of state of Vatican, may promote the better relations of Belarus with the Holy See and Europe.

“The visit of such a guest is an honor to the Church in Belarus and to the whole country as well”, – thinks the archbishop according to catholic.by.

While answering the question about the visit of the Pope Francis to Belarus Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz has mentioned once again that one of the conditions of his visit is the consent of a country’s major denomination, in case of Belarus it means the consent of the Orthodox Church.

In connection with this the Metropolitan reminded about the Secretary’s of State meeting with BOC head, Metropolitan of Minsk and Zaslawl Paul during the cardinal’s official visit on 13 March.
