Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches Cardinal Leonardo Sandri is on an official visit to Bulgaria. Patriarch Neophyte expressed before the guest gratitude to Pope Francis and the Catholic Church for the help they provide for the overseas eparchies of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church in the organizing of services and other events. West-and-Central European Metropolitan Antonyi pointed out that over 1.5 mln. Bulgarians worked and lived in West Europe, being financially incapable of building their own temples. Thus the Catholic ones, granted at their disposal in Rome, Munich, Barcelona, Segovia etc. are of utter importance for keeping their faith and traditions. Cardinal Leonardo Sandro will visit the Catholic communities in this country during his visit here.
