Letter to Catholic Interfaith Friends on the Occasion of Newly elected Pope
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Honorable Archbishop Allen Vigneron, yourself and the Catholic community in Detroit and the world on the election of Pope Francis. Certainly the news, "We have a pope" is extremely exiting for our brothers and sisters in the Catholic faith.

God willing interfaith relations between Muslims and Christians will keep improving, as we continue working together for peace and justice.

Many nations, in particular in the Middle East and Africa, suffer from the pain of poverty, war, violence, extremism and racism. Sincere dialogue, wisdom, love and kindness are among the best answer for the current chaos, confusion and crises in those regions.

We will continue to put our hearts and minds together and ask the Almighty to bless our cooperation for the sake of building a better world.

Sincerely,
Imam Mohammad Ali Elahi
Islamic House of Wisdom
