Kenneth Copeland Prays for the Pope

An extended prayer for the Pope and for Christian Unity at a Kenneth Copeland ministry meeting? Yep, it happened. The Holy Father sent a private message to a gathering of Kenneth Copeland ministries at the behest of his friend, Bishop Tony Palmer of the CEEC (about which I know nothing except: Anglican of some stripe). In a homey, spontaneous video shot by Palmer, the Pope spoke about Christian unity and asked for their prayers. I didn't watch the whole thing, just picked up at around minute 31 for the Pope's message and the prayer and response.

Transcript here. It's pretty decent, except I deny the Pope suggested any "spiritual hugs," as it's being translated. I would render it, "Let's embrace each other, spiritually, and allow the Lord to complete the work in us which He has begun...."
