ON HIS FIRST ever visit to the Arabian Peninsula for the UAE’s International Interfaith Meeting, Pope Francis once again met with Sheikh Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the grand imam of Al-Azhar, to sign the unprecedented Human Fraternity Document pledging to encourage fraternal relations between people across creeds, help to resolve conflicts and alleviate poverty. For the three days of the event the Founder’s Memorial, where it was held, turned into a shining beacon of tolerance and peace.
