Church leaders bond over prayer and lunch

The Times reports today of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s first visit to Pope Francis:

The Archbishop said: “It was a personal visit and the private conversation with Pope Francis was very personal indeed ā€” a private discussion about the nature of our faith and about our spirituality, of the experience of the mercy and grace and love of God.

“The conversation was about how you feel when you get up in the morning and you have got these extraordinary days, and where do you go in prayer? We weren’t saying, ‘How do appear on television?’

I’m really blessed, encouraged and excited to think of all that God is doing right now with these two leaders who not only speak of the mercy and grace and love of God, but are experiencing it for themselves. Thank you Lord.
