Just days after I wrote about Pope Francis’ speech on ending the “culture of indifference” towards Muslim refugees, the Holy Father emerged today with an equally powerful comment on how Christians and Muslims should lean on each other and share their belief in the “One God.”
Pope Francis spoke to the refugees about sharing their suffering, stating “It is important you do this when you meet. Those who are Christians with the Bible and those who are Muslims with the Koran, with the faith you have received from your fathers, a faith that will always help you move forward. Share your faith, because there is one single God, the same God.”
In once again encouraging Christians and Muslims to embrace each other, Francis is letting the world know that he is one of the most active contemporary proponents of Christian-Muslim dialogue.
