It has been announced that the Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew II, will attend the Mass of the Inauguration of Pope Francis, the first time this has happened since the Great Schism of 1054 A.D., on March 19, Feast of St. Joseph. Other Orthodox leaders will be present, including Metropolitan Hilarion of the Russian Orthodox Church.

The presence of the Eastern Church leaders may be because Cardinal Bergoglio was also appointed to serve as leader of the Eastern Church in Argentina. He was a ‘brother’ to the Orthodox leaders.
