Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and Archbishop Pier Luigi Celeta, Secretary, sent a message at the close of Ramadan (the Muslim month of fasting) to the Muslim community on the theme, “Christians and Muslims: called to promote a culture of peace”:
“Dear Muslim Friends, It gives me special pleasure to send you for the first time friendly and warmest greetings from the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue on the occasion of your joyful feast of ‘Id al-Fitr, with which the month-long fasting and prayer of Ramadan ends. This month is always an important time for the Muslim community and gives to each individual member a new strength for their personal, family and social existence. It matters that all of us witness to our religious beliefs with a life increasingly integrated and in conformity with the Creator’s plan, a life concerned with serving our brothers and sisters in ever increasing solidarity and fraternity with members of other religions… In the troubled times we are passing through, religious believers have, as servants of the Almighty, a duty above all to work in favour of peace, by showing respect for the convictions of individuals and communities everywhere through freedom of religious practice. Religious freedom, which must not be reduced to mere freedom of worship, is one of the essential aspects of freedom of conscience, which is the right of every individual and a cornerstone of human rights…
“As religious believers, it is up to us all to be educators of peace… No individual in the national community should be excluded on the grounds of his or her race, religion or any other personal characteristic. Together, as members of different religious traditions, we are called to spread a teaching which honors all human creatures, a message of love between individuals and peoples… Christians and Muslims will work together in mutual respect for peace and for a better future for all people; it will provide an example for the young people of today to follow and imitate…
“…This is the ardent hope I share with you: that Christians and Muslims continue to develop increasingly friendly and constructive relationships in order to share their specific riches, and that they will pay particular attention to the quality of the witness of their believers. Dear Muslim friends, once again I give you my warmest greetings on the occasion of your festival and I ask the God of Peace and Mercy to give you all good health, serenity and prosperity.
Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran
Archbishop Pier Luigi Celata
First, they encourage the Muslims to practice their false religion by sending them warmest greetings on the day of their “feast” - heresy. Second, they state that the false religion of Islam gives the individual Muslim “strength” – heresy. Third, they say that members of all religions are “servants of the Almighty”- heresy. Fourth, they state that we must show “respect for the convictions of individuals and communities everywhere through freedom of religious practice” – heresy. Fifth, they state that religious freedom is the “cornerstone of human rights” – heresy. Sixth, they say different religious “believers” are educators of true peace – heresy. Seventh, they say that no one, no matter what they believe, should ever be excluded – heresy. Eighth, they say that as “members of different religious traditions we are called to spread a teaching which honors all human creatures, a message of love” – heresy. Ninth, they declare that “Christians and Muslims will work together in mutual respect” and this will “provide an example for the young people to follow and imitate” – heresy. Tenth, they state that Christians and Muslims will “share their specific riches, and that they will pay particular attention to the quality of the witness of their believers”- heresy. This is to state that Islam possesses riches, which is something the apostate Paul VI also stated. They also declare here that members of Islam are witnesses of God.
These heresies are found in L’Osservatore Romano, Benedict XVI’s official newspaper. In fact, Benedict XVI’s published letter to the new editor of L’ Osservatore Romano is on page one of the most recent edition of L’Osservatore Romano (October 31st edition). In the letter Benedict XVI states that L’Osservatore Romano is “the Vatican newspaper” and “the ‘Pope’s paper’.” Therefore all of these heresies in this short letter are fully approved of by the apostate Benedict XVI.
