Pope Francis travelled to Turkey during Thanksgiving weekend for prayer and interreligious dialogue. His agenda included leading a joint Mass with Eastern Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew I at Istanbul’s Holy Spirit Cathedral, calling for peace and justice while condemning ISIS and its violent acts. Josephine McKenna, veteran Vatican reporter for Religion News Service, joins Welton to discuss the significance of the Pope’s efforts to bridge divides between the two Churches and his other religious outreach. Pope Francis has made headlines recently for his other partnership efforts with global faith leaders, including his initiative to end human trafficking.
