Message for the end of Ramadan 2013
popeEach year, the Vatican issues a message to Muslims, to mark the end of Ramadan.  This year Pope Francis has personally signed it himself  "as an expression of esteem and friendship for all Muslims, especially those who are religious leaders."    In his message Pope Francis called for more education to promote mutual respect between Islam and Christianity.

He said that such dialogue must be based in teaching and promoting respect for each others religions, especially with younger generations. In his message, the Pope expressed how it pains him to see attacks on religious leaders and places of worship.  Read the full text of the  message here
