Pope Francis is in Sweden to mark the joint Lutheran-Catholic commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. He will arrive in Malmö on Oct. 31 and be greeted by Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and meet the Royal Family. That afternoon and on Tuesday, Nov. 1, which is All Saints' Day, he will participate in ecumenical prayer services at Lund Cathedral, Malmö Arena and Swedbank stadion. The events will include prayers according to the recently published "Common Prayer,” a jointly-written Catholic and Lutheran liturgical guide prepared for the Reformation anniversary. Most events are open to the public.
"It is with joy and expectation that the Church of Sweden welcomes The Lutheran World Federation and the Catholic Church to hold the joint commemoration of the Reformation in Lund,” said Church of Sweden Archbishop Antje Jackelén in a statement. "I am very happy that the Pope is coming to Lund and that the Roman Catholic Church together with the Lutheran World Federation open for this exceptional meeting. It's a step forward for the work of the churches."
