1. The Future of Catholic-Muslim Relations Under the New Pope Francis I


    from Odyssey Networks Added 88 2 0

    As Jorge Mario Bergoglio takes on his new title Pope Francis I, one of his many challenges will be to foster relations with Islam. Preceding him, Pope Benedict XVI offended Muslims in a 2006 speech quoting an emperor who called Islam an evil religion. “If we’re going to have a real friendship, brother and sister relationship, we cannot be hypocrites,” said Seyyed Hossein Nasr, professor of Islamic relations at George Washington University. “We must base our self on the truth.” The cardinals wanted a pope who can both engage with Islam and defend the Catholic Church, said David Gibson, author of “The Rule of Benedict." Gibson, who is in Rome reporting as national correspondent for Religion News Service, previously spoke with Odyssey about how the new pope was chosen and the legacy of Pope Benedict XVI.

                from Odyssey Networks Added 4 0 0

                Celestine V, the first pope to willingly abdicate, was once known as Peter of Morrone, a man who preferred to live as a hermit. Jon Sweeney, author of the book "The Pope Who Quit," explains that although many saw his abdication negatively, Celestine's refusal was ultimately an act of humility. "It wasn't an act of cowardice, it actually was an act of enlightenment," Sweeney said. "It was an act of deciding to be a faithful follower of Christ."
