Multifaith Monday 11/3/14

by Vicki Garlock on November 3, 2014

Sometimes, I get tired of the global infatuation with Pope Francis, especially when there are so many unsung interfaith heroes doing amazing work on the ground. However, the guy knows how to offer quotable quotes, so here’s one from Saturday’s celebration of the Feast of All Saints.

“I invite you to pray that the Holy City, dear to Jews, Christians and Muslims, which in recent days has witnessed diverse tensions, always be a sign and foretaste of the peace which God desires for the whole human family.”

And now, my top picks for faith-related news stories from the last several days.
