Itongadol/AJN.- The Argentinian rabin Abraham Skorka, who accompanied Pope Francis in the interreligious trip for peace throughout Middle East, sends his regards for Christmas to the pontiff into a letter that the Jewish News Agency has access.
"In this time of Advent, prayers, seclusion, and search of the Lord in the Catholic tradition, I wish you that- using the neologism you have created- He advantaged you, and he meets you.”, Skorka wrote.
And he added: "I wish He transmit you the courage and strength so you can accomplish in plenty with the special mission in which he brings you on Earth. I wish He bless yours efforts to reach the harmony in your Church, the rapprochement between the different Cristian churches, the interreligious conversation and the peace between people and nations”
In addition, Skorka wishes Francis that in Nativity he “would find new ways to inspire people in the challenge of rectify wrong attitudes and procedures, giving the chance to reborn positively in plenty with life".
Skorka also salutes the pontiff for New Year: "The year that begins means more than a change of number, but also the acceptance of a bet to extend the good, the fair, the merciful to everyone. You can be sure you are always present in my prayers”
In May, Rabin Skorka accompanied Pope Francis with the exsecretary of the Islamic Centre Omar Abboud, in an interreligious trip for peace in Middle East, in which they profess a message of peace and cohabitation in the hole world.
Francis and Skorka have been working together in the interreligious talk and keep in touch very often.
