Called to be Peacemakers:
Rev. Dr Patrick McInerney Reflects on the Pope’s Egypt Visit

By Stephen O'DohertyWednesday 10 May 2017Open House with Stephen O'Doherty

The Pope’s visit to Egypt reminds us that 800 years ago another Francis stood in the same landscape also as a peacemaker. During the Fifth Crusade, St Francis of Assisi crossed the no man’s land between the warring sides to meet the leader of the Muslim side. Reverend Dr Patrick McInerney, a Columban Missionary Priest, says Pope Francis encourages us to do likewise and go into the world and meet people from different faiths. It is by coming face-to-face as individuals that we connect on a personal level and understand we have common goals.
