Pope Francis led the third Christian and Muslim Summit in the Vatican. It's a way to strengthen the ties and understanding between both religions.
"This helps us strengthen our fraternity. Thank you for all the work you do. For this work that helps us understand one another better. For promoting peace. For dialogue. Thank you.”
One by one, Pope Francis greeted all those in attendance, which included people from Iraq, Turkey and Jordan. In fact, the prince of Jordan, El Hassan bin Talal, was also there and he exchanged a few words with the Pope. Jordan is known for welcoming refugees, many of whom are Christians neighboring countries.
Since coming back from Turkey, the Pope has emphasized the importance of having governments respect religious freedom and also the need to improve the understanding between Christians and Muslims.
