.- The leaders of the Catholic communities in Israel, Jordan and Cyprus have chosen the logo and motto for the Pope's pilgrimage which will begin on Saturday, May 24.

The motto is ¨That they may be one¨ and the logo presents the two Apostles and brothers Saint Peter and Saint Andrew embracing. The Holy Land Review reports that the logo and motto were presented at the recent Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries in the Holy Land, celebrated on March 11 and 12 in Tiberias, on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee.

The motto for the pilgrimage, The Holy Land Review notes, recalls that when Pope Francis announced his trip to the Holy Land, he expressed his desire to commemorate the meeting in Jerusalem between

Pope Paul VI and Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras, who announced his trip in January on the 50th anniversary of this meeting.

Pope Francis' pilgrimage will have three phases: Amman, Bethlehem and Jerusalem and will include an Ecumenical Meeting with all the representatives of the Christian churches of Jerusalem, together with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople in the Holy Sepulchre.
