About Pope Francis

Argentina's seventy six year old Mr. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a Roman Catholic, who has been elected as two hundred sixty sixth (266th ) Pope of Vatican City, a non European who was under the influence of Francis of Assisi. Therefore the same name he chosen is His Holiness Saint Francis (II) and is very much humble complexioned. In the same week, the world of Christians were celebrated the Easter that 'Hazrat Isa was impaled, again three days later God gave the life to him.' The world's most oldest Christian population can be found in the Eastern Wasta. His Holiness expressed, when I was in Sham then I was going for the celebration of Easter to a small city Hasakah and I was taking part in it. The Easter is called Iidul Fasah in Arabi. It is a very beautiful place which is outside of Damusq and in the center of the hills. I had a talks for a longer time with Padri of a Dair. Those people are keeping special interest in Ibn-Al-Arabi and Wahadatul Wajud. The Padri of Hasakah is desiring that "the people of every religion come over here and may participate in it." Those people, 'even the bible they read in Arabbi'. I was present before the Mausoleum of Hazrat Zainab in Sham; there, a person native of Iraq who was a Christian, presented himself before the mausoleum of Hazrat Zainab to request for the benediction (Duaa) because shortly he was going to England.

Knowing this, we are very happy that 'every human being should accept this path of peace.'
