2014-05-02

 

"How nice to see you!”



"Hi, how are you? It's been a while!”


"I'm fine, thanks to God.”


"May God bless you!”


"Also to you.”



With a warm greeting the Pope welcomed a delegation of the Islamic Center of the Republic of Argentina.

 

 

 

 

Their relationship goes back years, when the Pope still served as the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, taking part in several inter-religious commissions.

 

 

 

 

During the brief meeting, the Muslim delegation expressed their best wishes for the Pope's future trip to the Holy Land.

 

 

 

 

They also gave him a copy of the Koran translated to Spanish by an Argentinian. Its silver cover is work of a goldsmith who is also a friend of the Pope. 

 

 

 

 

"A Latin American, an Argentinian, did the translation.”
