Vatican City, Apr 5, 2017 / 10:56 am
Pope Francis met Wednesday with a delegation of Muslim leaders from Great Britain along with Cardinal Vincent Nichols of Westminster to promote dialogue and collaboration following the deadly attack in London last month.
During the private meeting at the Vatican's Paul VI Hall April 5, Pope Francis said the most important job everyone has in this moment is to listen to each other.
"I like to think that the most important work that we must do among us today, in humanity, is the work 'of the ear:' to listen to each other," he stated. "To listen to each other, without rushing to answer."
Following the audience with Francis, the group also met with Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue.
