a Rabbi, a Muslim leader and the Pope went to Jerusalem

26 May

It was the occasion of an embrace at the Western Wall, the holiest site for Jews in Jerusalem, just below the third holiest site in the world for Muslims.

The Pope, the rabbi and the Muslim leader, all friends back in Argentina, collapsed in a heartfelt embraced.

After the tears and words exchanged, Francis went to pray and to place his prayer in the crevice of the wall.
