When Doves Cry

The events of the past few days have indeed been momentous. I am not sure what to make of it all. Certainly, the Bishop of Rome is thinking constantly about how the world stands in the balance. Here is a story from Inside the Vatican Magazine about what Benedict XVI experienced, and what it may mean.

"His Lips Moved" by Dr. Robert Moynihan

Benedict's gift to the Mufti of the doves picture certainly speaks volumes about his hopes for our world. But what he wrote in the Blue Mosque Guest Book gives us a unique window into his heart:

"In our diversity, we find ourselves before faith in the one God.
May God
enlighten us and help us find the path of love and peace."
