I did a google search of ‘Orthodox Christian leader of the world’ - came up with only the fox piece and this post. Nothing else. I think the AP writer is delusional. LOL

Pope passed through St. Peter’s Square on Popemobile in front of huge crowd awhile ago. Went into the palace to change vestments.

Inaugural mass should begin very soon.

Hrm? You’re plainly ignorant. The leader of the Orthodox world is the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople - who will be attending Pope Francis’ installation mass.

This fellow here.

Pope stopped at altar, his miter was removed, he gave incense to a representation of the Madonna and Child.

Now seated, Pope Francis is now receiving the palladium and woolen stole that are symbols of papal authority.
