But Constantinople to Rome back then was a few days, if not week, journey, not a few hours.  I would guess by the time a new Pope of Rome is chosen and by the time word got to Constantinople and the EP makes his travel plans, the new Pope of Rome would have already celebrated a dozen Liturgies.

Maybe he can go, he can take the Pope Mobile since Pope Francis is taking the bus anyway.


--- Quote ---Istanbul (AsiaNews) - The Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I will attend Pope Francis's inaugural Mass. The Ecumenical Patriarchate Press Office informed AsiaNews about the decision, noting that this is the first time such an event occurs since the Catholic-Orthodox split in 1054, an important sign for Christian unity.

The ecumenical patriarch will be accompanied by Ioannis Zizioulas, metropolitan of Pergamon and co-president of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Roman Catholic and the Orthodox Church, as well as Tarassios, Orthodox Metropolitan of Argentina, and Gennadios, Orthodox Metropolitan of Italy.
