A quote from Pope Francis:
"Dear brothers and sisters, when our actions are prompted by the power of Christ's love, understanding and reciprocal esteem grow, a fruitful ecumenical journey becomes possible, and all people of goodwill, and society as a whole, are shown a concrete way to harmonize the conflicts that rend civil life and create divisions that prove hard to heal."
-- Address at cathedral at Etchmiadzin, June 24, 2016
