Francis at the Blue Mosque…
Francis prays with Mufti at the Blue Mosque in Istanbul
Mr. Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is currently visiting Turkey. November 29 marks Day 2 of his trip, and, like his predecessor Benedict XVI, he went to Istanbul and, removing his shoes, stepped into the Mosque of the Sultan Ahmed, often referred to as the “Blue Mosque”. As is visible in the photo above and the video below, Francis prayed for several minutes to the same god as the Muslims:
After the prayer, Francis said to the Muslim leader, “I also want to ask you to pray for me” (source).
