For Immediate Release:

The Office of Database Operations and US International Media Relations presents the official full text of H.H. Pope Tawadros II's address to H.H. Pope Francis that was delivered during His Holiness's visit to Vatican City on May 10, 2013. His Holiness Pope Tawadros II, Pope and Patriarch of the See of St. Mark and leader of the Coptic Orthodox Church, met with His Holiness Pope Francis, Bishop of Rome and Supreme Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, in Vatican City on May 9 and 10, 2013. This was the first meeting of the two recently elected Church leaders and only the second Papal gathering in Rome in 1500 years. The last visit of a Coptic Pope to the Vatican occurred on May 10, 1973 when His Holiness Pope Shenouda III met with His Holiness Pope Paul VI (both departed) and signed an important Christological Declaration with the ambition to initiate ecumenical dialogue between the two Churches.
