50 years since Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras met with Pope Paul VI

The past few days we have all witnessed the meeting of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Pope Francis in Jerusalem. This is a historical event, celebrating also the 50th anniversary since Ecumenical Patriarch Athenagoras met with Pope Paul VI in Jerusalem. That was of course a significant historical event, since it was the first time since the Schism (1054) that an Ecumenical Patriarch met with the Pope of Rome. Below is a video from that first meeting, 50 years ago.
