Pope calls for mutual respect between Christians and Muslims during Sunday Angelus

2013-08-12

POPE FRANCIS
"A love that gives strength to the family, work, to friendship, art and all human activity. And that makes sense out of all the negative experiences, because it allows, this love, to go beyond these experiences. To go beyond, and not remain prisoners in that evil, it allows us to move forward, it opens us to hope. God's love in Jesus always opens us to hope, to that horizon of hope, the horizon at the end of our pilgrimage. This way even fatigue and the falls can make sense. Even our sins can find sense within God's love, because God's love in Jesus Christ always forgives us, He loves us so much, he always forgives.”

After the Angelus, the Pope sent a special greeting to Muslims as they celebrated the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

POPE FRANCIS
"I would like to send a greeting to Muslims across the entire world, our brothers, who until recently had celebrated the conclusion of the month of Ramadan, dedicated in a particular way to fasting, to prayer and to charity. As I wrote in my message for this occasion, I wish that Christians and Muslims will work to promote mutual respect, especially through the education of newer generations.”

The Pope also reminded the faithful that on Thursday is the celebration for the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, a feast he will celebrate at Castel Gandolfo, just as his predecessors did.
