Pope Francis Donates Stone From St. Peter’s Cathedral To Armenia Church


Pope Francis has donated a symbolic stone to the Holy Martyrs Armenian Apostolic Church in Gyumri, a letter from the Holy See says.

Stressing union and communion as a symbol behind the move, Cardinal-Archpriest Angelo Comastri said in the letter that the stone was placed in the door of St. Peter’s Cathedral in 2000.

The stone was reportedly taken from the Basilica while opening the jubilee mercy year on December 8, 2015, during the Immaculate Conception Holy Day.
