TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Pope Francis arrived in Jerusalem on Sunday evening after spending most of the day in Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, where he delivered a mass in front of thousands of Palestinians.

Francis was greeted by Israel's Jerusalem mayor Nir Barkat and other dignitaries, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported. He then held a private meeting with Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew I, it said.

The pope was expected to participate in a Ecumenical meeting marking the 50th anniversary of a meeting in Jerusalem between Pope Paul VI and Patriarch Athenagoras I in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Haaretz said.
