I want to congratulate the Catholic Church and Pope Francis on his election to the office of pope. I pray that he can bring about interfaith peace and understanding through his leadership. As a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, we understand the importance of leadership and its role in bringing about peace between the various faith communities worldwide.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has always believed and practiced interfaith peace stemming from the teaching of the Holy Prophet Muhammad. Prophet Muhammad invited Christians of his time to interfaith dialogue and guaranteed religious freedom. The Holy Quran, the holy scripture of Islam, confirms the truth and purity of both Jesus and his mother Mary.

We pray that we can work with Pope Francis to establish the interfaith peace and understanding that the world sorely needs today.
