Pope Francis has call for harmony among religions adherents especially Muslims and Christians in the interest of global development.

The Pope made the call in his Vatican Ramadan message titled “Message for the Month of Ramadan and 'Id Al-Fitr”.

The statement was signed on behalf of Pope Francis by Jean-Louis Cardinal Tauran and Bishop Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, President and Secretary of the Christians and Muslims: Caring for our Common Home (MCCl) respectively.

“We wish to assure you of our prayerful solidarity during this time of fasting in the month of Ramadan and the celebration of ‘Id al–Fitr that concludes it, and we extend to you our heartfelt best wishes for serenity, joy and abundant spiritual gifts. This year’s Message is especially timely and significant: fifty years ago, in 1967, only three years after the establishment of this Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (PCID) by Pope Paul VI on 19 May 1964, the first Message was sent for this occasion.

“In the years that have followed, two Messages have been particularly important: the Message of 1991, during the pontificate of Pope John Paul II, entitled “The Path of Believers is the Way of Peace”, and the Message of 2013, in the first year of Pope Francis’ pontificate, entitled “Promoting Mutual Respect through Education”. Both Messages were signed by the Pontiffs,” the Pope said.

He said that the experience of both religious communities affirms the value of this message for promoting cordial relations between Christian and Muslim neighbours and friends, by offering insights on current and pressing issues.
