Reports: Pope, Orthodox Patriarch plan for 2025 ecumenical council

No it isn’t the Third Vatican Council that some have called for, but in fact, it’s bigger than that.

Here’s a statement from the Orthodox patriarch:

“[Pope Francis and I] agreed to leave as a legacy to ourselves and our successors a gathering in Nicaea in 2025, to celebrate together, after 17 centuries, the first truly ecumenical synod, where the Creed was first promulgated.” The Council of Nicea, held in 325, brought together over 300 bishops and approved the formula of faith now known as the Nicene Creed.”
