Meeting with Pope Francis was the Chairman of the Department of Foreign Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate, Ven. Metropolitan Hilarion Mr. Hilarion.

...

The President of the External Relations Department of the Moscow Patriarchate, just before the meeting offered to Pope Francis a reliquary egg-shaped relic sacred piece of St. Seraphim of Sarov, a gift from Patriarch Kirill.

The Pope clearly excited bowed and kissed the reliquary, asking His Eminence to convey to Moscow Patriarch gratitude and brotherly love.

Would  posting a story from the original and English source be too mainstream?
