 Pope seeks ‘bridges of friendship’ with Muslims


VATICAN CITY - A day after reaching out to other Christians and to Jews in his installation Mass, Pope Benedict XVI met Monday with members of the Muslim community, assuring them the church wanted to continue building “bridges of friendship” that he said could foster peace in the world.

Benedict made the comments while meeting with religious leaders who attended Sunday’s installation ceremony, saying he was particularly grateful that members of the Muslim community were present.

“I express my appreciation for the growth of dialogue between Muslims and Christians, both at the local and international level,” he said.

He noted that the world is marked by conflicts but longs for peace.
