Lettera del Santo Padre all'Inviato Speciale alle celebrazioni dell'VIII centenario dell'incontro tra San Francesco d'Assisi e il Sultano Al-Malik Al-Kamel [Egitto, 1-3 marzo 2019]

Beatus ille vir pacificus, sanctus Franciscus Assisiensis, qui etiam sodales suos docuit omnibus occurrere cum salutatione: “Dominus det tibi pacem” (S. Franciscus, Testamentum, 23), corde suo bene intellexit universa creata ab uno provenisse Creatore, qui unus est Bonus, omnesque homines in Ipso unum communem habere Patrem. Ideo de omnipotentis et misericordis Dei, “qui omnes homines vult salvos fieri et ad agnitionem veritatis venire” (1 Tim 2,3-4), ineffabili amore notitiam cunctis hominibus et ubique laeto ardentique animo afferri cupiebat.

COMMEMORATING DAMIETTA IN GERMANY AND FRANCE


“Interfaith dialogue is at the heart of Franciscan spirituality. Therefore it is our obligation as brothers and sisters of Saints Francis and Clare to contribute to it.” It was with this obligation before them that our Brothers in Germany, together with their sisters and brothers in the Inter-Franciscan Working Group in Germany (Interfranziskanische Arbeitsgemeinschaft), developed a special webpage dedicated to the significance of the 800thanniversary of the meeting between St. Francis and Sultan al-Malik al-Kamal for the world today: http://www.infag.de/seiten/doku.php/1219_religionsdialog
