At today's weekly general audience the Holy Father received a new tiara made for him and presented by Catholic and Orthodox Christians.
The tiara was commissioned by Dieter Philippi, a German Catholic businessman who has a great devotion to the papacy as well as to the call to Christian unity.
The tiara was created in Sofia, Bulgaria by Orthodox Christians of the Liturgix studio.
Today a small delegation of Roman Catholics and Bulgarian Orthodox on pilgrimage in Rome had the honor to present the tiara to the Holy Father in the name of Christian unity.
