In an interview given to Vatican Radio, on October 17, 2012, Met. Hilarion (Alfeyev), who recently met with the Vatican leaders, discusses how the Polish Papist (‘Catholic’) church and the MP are sister local churches.  He also explains, about the preparation for joint-ecumenical celebrations between the MP and Rome to celebrate the Edict of Milan (as well as preparing for Pope Benedict’s visit to Russia as being more than just ‘a shaking of hands’).
