The Roman Catholic Church has just appointed a new archbishop. An Italian who speaks Russian well.
The relationship between both churches has been cold for a long time now.
OXFORD, England (CNS) – A Catholic leader in Russia said the Italian missionary named archbishop of Moscow will "be well able to lead the local church and find ways through difficult situations."
Archbishop-designate Paolo Pezzi, 47, "is highly educated, with great pastoral experience," said Father Igor Kovalevsky, secretary-general of the Russian bishops' conference. "He speaks Russian well and has a deep interest in Russian culture, as well as a strong and visible record of achievement as seminary rector in St. Petersburg."
