Benedict XVI to meet with Russian Orthodox Patriarch in September?

.- Pope Benedict XVI could hold an historic meeting wit the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, Alexis II, next September in Strasburg (France), according to a report by the Russian media reports.

Citing Orthodox sources, Russian media outlets said the central them of the meeting would be the issue of the uniates, members of the Orthodox rite of the Catholic Church present in the Ukraine.

The meeting would be historic given the Russian Patriarchate’s refusal to agree to such an encounter up to this point and its constant accusations against the Holy See of carrying out proselytism.
