"The Institute of Interfaith Dialog joins the Catholic community in welcoming the election of Pope Francis as the Bishop of Rome and as a beacon of the simplicity, tenderness and brotherhood that Francis modeled for the entire world. History recalls the respectful and warm relationship that developed between Francis and the Muslim Sultan during their extended visit with one another. We trust that that relationship will serve to deepen the fraternal relationship between Muslims and Christians and be a model of the love, respect, peace and justice for which the world yearns."
