On February 27, 2014, Pope Francis received a group of Argentinean Christian, Jewish and Muslim religious leaders who participated in an interfaith pilgrimage to the Holy Land and stopped in Rome on their way back to Argentina.
In the Holy Land, the group visited many of the places Pope Francis is expected to visit on his pilgrimage in May in Jordan, Palestine and Israel and met with civil and religious authorities.
The Pope said to the group: “The majority of us know how to coexist, it’s easier for us, and that’s a clear message. It’s a message that we have the same Father, up in Heaven, and the same Father down on earth, we adore him.”
