Pope meets with Iran’s Islamic Culture and Relations group

Pope Francis met in the Vatican on Wednesday with participants at a Colloquium organised by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue and the Islamic Culture and Relations Organisation from Teheran.

In brief words of greeting to the group, the Pope said he greatly appreciated the presence of those who had travelled from Iran to attend the meeting. He recalled with joy his meeting last January with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, as well as an encounter he had with the country’s vice president for women and family affairs, Shahindokht Mowlaverdi, who visited the Vatican with a group of female professors in February 2015. That visit, he said left him with a very positive impression of Iranian culture.

The Pope also underlined the importance of this 10th round of interfaith dialogue and fraternal encounter. He asked his guests to remember to pray for him and asked God to bless all members of the group.

During the two-day meeting, which concluded on Wednesday, the Muslim and Christian scholars have been sharing perspectives on “Extremism and violence in the name of religion: the reasons of the supporters and perpetrators”, “Rational approach to religion: the sign of hope for wounded humanity”, and “Humanity and its common home; the contribution of religion for having a better world”.

The 9th round of this dialogue between the Pontifical Council and the Islamic Culture and Relations Organisation was held in December 2014 in Tehran on the theme “Constructive Dialogue between Muslims and Christians for the Good of Society”. Source


Following that the coalition of this new paganism which will be more papal than otherwise, of the papacy itself, and of false Protestantism which is the image of the papacy, will be perfectly easy. WGI 157.2

And when this grand three-fold coalition shall have been accomplished the result will be a truly world-religion, in which the papacy will be predominant, and which will be supported by all the great powers of the world. And all the great world-powers involved in this three-fold coalition of religions, will be united in compelling all the people in the world to conform to that world-religion, with the result that “all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” WGI 157.3

In this culmination of the three great apostasies in one world-religion again, with the papacy predominant and supported by all power of the world, the papacy will be lifted to the height at which she exultantly congratulates herself [sic.], “I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.” But lo! just then, and “Therefore, shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and mine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God that judgeth her.” Revelation 18:7, 8. WGI 158.1
