Latest Edition - Bridges - June 2018

عيد مبارك‎   Eid Mubarak (lit. “Blessed Feast”)
Happy Feast Day! 

كل عام و انتم بخير  (Kul ‘am wa antum bi-khair)
May you be well throughout the year!

This issue of Bridges was prepared during the month of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting.

  • At the Centre, we published a “Christian Reflection on Ramadan” (page 2)
  • We enjoyed many iftar meals, breaking the fast with our Muslim sisters and brothers (page 2)
  • We wish our Muslim readers, “Eid Mubarak”, a blessed Feast Day (page 1)
  • We share the Eid message from the Vatican (pages 6-7)
  • A pdf file of the English text is available at PCID Eid Message
  • A pdf file of the Arabic text is available at المجلس البابوي للحوار بين الأديان
  • We report on the Vatican delegation’s visit to Saudi Arabia (pages 4-5)

We highly recommend “So that you might know each other”, an exhibition on faith and culture in Islam at the National Museum of Australia in Canberra “Faith, Tradition and Culture” details the origins and contents of the exhibition. 

The Abraham Conference brings together Jews, Christians and Muslims on the theme, Pillars of Peace.

Youth PoWR (Parliament of the World’s Religions) brings young people of all faiths together to have a voice and a vote on matters of common concern.
