News that matters

“The new pope will be welcomed in the Holy Land with love and appreciation by Jews, Muslims and Christians as one.”

This is the statement given by Israeli President Simon Peres on Thursday. Perses welcomed the announcement of the new pontiff, saying Pope Francis I brings with him “a spirit of hope and peace.”

Peres made his remarks to a delegation of 14 Polish bishops who are rounding up a week-long spiritual renewal in Israel.

“The new pope will be welcomed in the Holy Land with love and appreciation by Jews, Muslims and Christians as one,” Peres said.

Archbishop Stanislaw Gadecki, leader of the delegation and a member of the Holy See’s Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, told Peres that there was no more suitable place than the holy city of Jerusalem in which to hear the good news about the election of Pope Francis.

    Not all faiths, and Peres does not speak for the one true church.
