in Allah's name we pray
By Diogenes ( articles ) | Sep 16, 2005
At Catholic University, a Catholic archbishop ends a public meeting this way:
In the name of Allah, the merciful and compassionate God, we pray. Amen.
It isn't the first time, apparently. Earlier in his remarks, Cardinal McCarrick told his distinguished guest: "I asked Allah, the compassionate and merciful Lord of all the world, to bless you..." And later he added: "May Allah, the merciful and compassionate, continue to guide your steps along this noble path."
Please bow your head and join Uncle Di in prayer that Allah, the merciful, will speed the Pope's acceptance of ecclesiastical resignation letters.
