I am glad that I attended the four public events!

Many Melkite bishops, clergy, and lay people joined His Beatitude Gregorios III, Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Of Alexandria and Jerusalem, in Rome for the liturgies and audiences. According to news reports, it was a successful visit, and the Pope encouraged the Patriarch and His Church to continue our work of evangelization and Christian unity.
