SIMPLE TRUTHS FROM THE PATRIARCH
The Eye Witness offers this as an antidote to the deluge of propaganda emanating from the United States and Israel. From the Maronite Patriarch of Antioch, Cardinal Bechara Rai:
"Both Christians and Muslims in the Middle East venerate the figure of the Pope, no matter who he is. Criticisms against him simply do not exist. The Pope is the Pope and it makes no difference to them whether he is American, Spanish, Italian or other."
Words to ponder.
I wish the Conclave would look to the East this time around (and I don't mean New York). Mary, Help of Christians, ora pro nobis.
Here's the whole interview, from the Vatican Insider.
(Please don't show the Patriarch's words to Jihad hunters Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller and David Horowitz. The poor dears might have collective heart failure.)
