Pope Francis Middle East Trip

Clip: 05/22/2014 | 8m 49s

The pope's pilgrimage is intended on one level to commemorate the 1964 meeting between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras that ended a thousand years of estrangement between Eastern and Western Christianity. But there are other agendas as well: interfaith dialogue, the Middle East peace process, and the diminishing Christian presence in the Holy Land.
