BP. HINDER: THE POPE IN ARABIA WILL BE A BRIDGE FOR DIALOGUE WITH MUSLIMS

Light of truth

Pope Francis’s visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a country where most migrant workers are Catholic from different Asian countries, is an “encouragement and a recognition of their existence and value,” this according to Paul Hinder, Apostolic Vicar of Southern Arabia (United Arab Emirates, Oman and Yemen). Speaking to AsiaNews on the eve of the first papal trip to a Gulf country, the prelate notes that “His presence shows the unity among us, in spite of tensions and differences that characterise a multinational and multicultural Church, which is united under the same sky.”
