What’s the significance of the Pope’s three-day Apostolic Visit to Armenia?

Pope Francis has arrived in Armenia for a three-day Apostolic Visit and has been welcomed by the President, Serzh Sargsyn, and the Catholicos of All Armenia, Karekin II. Bishops’ MENA consultant Dr Harry Hagopian, himself an Armenian, joins us for a podcast to talk about the Pope’s 14th overseas visit. Dr Hagopian discusses the context of the visit and covers, among other things, relations between the Armenian Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church and the 1915 Genocide.
