GREETING OF HIS HOLINESS JOHN PAUL II
TO HIS HOLINESS ABUNA PAULOS,
SHEPHERD AND PATRIARCH
OF THE ANCIENT CHURCH OF ETHIOPIA

Wednesday, 9 June 1993


It is with great joy that I extend a warm fraternal greeting to His Holiness Abuna Paulos, Shepherd and Patriarch of the ancient Church of Ethiopia, rich in noble spiritual traditions and persevering Christian witness. I am truly pleased that it has been possible for you to make this visit to the Church of Rome, and I look forward to our meetings during these days. I know that we share the ardent hope that this visit will favour relations between our Churches and help to foster that search for full ecclesial communion which is the heart of ecumenical endeavours.
