Greetings and peace be with you all,

Pope Francis has visited a refugee centre to wash and kiss the feet of Muslim, Orthodox, Hindu and Catholic refugees — a gesture of welcome at a time when anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment has risen after the Brussels and Paris attacks.

In the spirit of praying for a greater interfaith cooperation and friendship,

Eric

:).

If he reverts to Islam, that would create massive impact.

Reminds me of the comment by brother @najimuddin

A Pope reverting to Islam is likely to cause intense reflection throughout the world in general. There is a strong possibility that many of the millions (billions?) who admire him may accept Islam due to this.


Of course, ...there are exceptions.

I believe that Pope Francis is a great example of brotherly love, he is breaking down some of the barriers people perceive exist between our separate faiths. I believe he is a man who considers justice for all people, starting with the poor.

In the spirit of praying for justice for all people
