    I find it interesting that you quote the Qu’ran, I understood that Sisters were Christian, perhaps I am wrong.

      Thank you for your comment, Lily. Indeed, sisters are Christians. And we recognize the beauty, truth, and inspiration that speaks to us in all of creation, as well as through those of other faiths who love God. I would like to share with you a few quotes from Pope Francis . . . words that he shared before Ramadan. I think they call all of us to learn from one another.

      “This year, the first of my Pontificate, I have decided to sign this traditional message myself and to send it to you, dear friends, as an expression of esteem and friendship for all Muslims, especially those who are religious leaders,” he writes.”

      “This year, the theme on which I would like to reflect with you and with all who will read this message is one that concerns both Muslims and Christians: Promoting Mutual Respect through Education.”

      Francis said his message should apply to everyone, with all people respecting the life, dignity and rights of each person.

      “Regarding the education of Muslim and Christian youth, we have to bring up our young people to think and speak respectfully of other religions and their followers, and to avoid ridiculing or denigrating their convictions and practices,” he said.”

      I found the above quotes at this link, though there were many similar sources: http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/02/world/europe/vatican-pope-muslims/index.html

      Blessings!

    Very interesting, I have never thought about it that way. I agree there needs to be love and respect for all regardless of race or religion.
