Pope writes Ramadan piece in Vatican daily

Vatican City, August 8 – Pope Francis penned a piece in Vatican daily L'Osservatore Romano marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan on Thursday, the first time a pontiff has done so since John Paul II in 1991. "We are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values. Particular respect is due to religious leaders and to places of worship. How painful are attacks on one or other of these!," Pope Francis wrote.
