Pope Francis and the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew meet in the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre to celebrate the 50th anniversary of that historical "embrace" that took place in Jerusalem between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras. 

Watch the historical signing of the declaration – a sign of friendship – between two Christian churches so long divided.
