Christians And Muslims Shared Prayer In Milan

Archdeacon Vickie Sims writes; “Representatives of various Christian churches and Muslim groups joined with the Community of Sant' Egidio in Milan on Wednesday 6th April to pray for the recent victims of terrorism in Brussels and Lahore. While Christians prayed in the Church of San Bernardino alle Monache, our Muslim brothers and sisters prayed in the adjoining hall.

"Afterwards all gathered in the space in front of the church to hear comments from the various representatives. The common theme was our desire to live together not merely 'tolerating' each other, but to live together in a way which enriches our respective communities and creates a better place for our children and the generations to come."
