So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Pope Francis' Friday Itinerary

(CNS) Here is the Pope's updated schedule as released by the Vatican. Times listed are local, with Eastern Standard Time in parenthesis when it is different from local time:
Friday, Feb. 12 (Rome, Havana, Mexico City)
  • 7:45am (1:45am ET) — departs from Rome's Fiumicino airport.
  • 2pm (11am PDT) — arrives at Jose Marti International Airport in Havana.
  • 2:15pm — Private meeting with Patriarch Kirill.
  • 4:30pm — Signing of a joint declaration. Speeches by Patriarch and by Pope.
  • 5:30pm — Pope departs from Havana airport for Mexico City.

Let us pray, Catholics and Orthodox, for the healing of the Church. The world desperately needs a united witness to Jesus Christ. May all souls be docile to the agenda of the Holy Spirit so that "all may be one" (St. John 17:21) according to the design that Jesus wills for His Church.

Pray for unity. Pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters in the Middle East, Africa and around the world.
