In a joint circular message read out to all congregations on Sunday, the Russian Orthodox Church and the Polish Roman Catholic Church called on their faithful and peoples to put centuries of Russian-Polish disagreements behind them and enter a new era of religious rebirth and reconciliation. They said the disagreements were the result of human fallibilities, conflicting political interests and also prejudices which no longer matter in the modern world.

In Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the message was read out after a patriarchal service held in memory of Russia’s victory in the 1812 war with Napoleon.
