Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue and Cardinal Protodeacon, has issued a message to Muslims celebrating Eid al-Fitr, which concludes the holy month of Ramadan.
According to the message, Tauran stated that this year the Vatican had focused on common reflection on the education of young Christians and Muslims for justice and peace, which are inseparable from truth and freedom.
The message stated that it was increasingly urgent to educate young for peace.
“To engage ourselves in an adequate manner, the true nature of peace must be understood: That it is not limited to the mere absence of war, or to a balance between opposing forces, but is at one and the same time a gift from God and a human endeavor to be pursued without ceasing,” says the message.
Tauran stated that it was both a beautiful and difficult task to help children and young people discover and develop the resources with which the Creator has endowed them.
“If the task of education is entrusted to the whole of society, as you know, it is first and foremost, and in a particular way, the work of parents and, with them, of families, schools and universities, not forgetting about those responsible for religious, cultural, social and economic life, and the world of communication,” said the message.
“We must not forget that the common good cannot be achieved without solidarity and fraternal love!” concludes the message.
