Pope Francis this morning visited a mosque at the
Central African Republic, the last country he will be
visiting in Africa. Pope Francis met with Muslim
leaders and Muslim faithfuls at the central
Koudoukou mosque in the PK5 district, the last
Muslim enclave in Bangui. He rode his motorcade with some Muslim leaders as he made his way to
“Christians and Muslims are brothers and sisters.
Together, we must say no to hatred, to revenge
and to violence, particularly that violence which is
perpetrated in the name of a religion or of God
himself,” he said to his mostly-Muslim audience
who were sitting on the floor, listening quietly.
