Turkey’s President Extends Easter Wishes to Christians:

“President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan extended his best wishes to ‘all Christian citizens and the Christian community on the occasion of Easter,’ saying:

‘This culture of coexistence in the Anatolian soil will cement peace and brotherhood today, as it was in the past, and will carry us to the bright future.’” 



Through his policy also he shall cause deception to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many…”

Daniel 8:25

“I greet and thank cordially all of you, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; firstly the Muslims, who worship the one living and merciful God, and call upon Him in prayer. I really appreciate your presence, and in it I see a tangible sign of the wish to grow in reciprocal trust and in cooperation for the common good of humanity.”

—Pope Francis I,
