Archbishop Pier Luigi CELATA
Deputy President of Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue
I fell deep sorrow for the loss of Pope John Paul II, the leader of the Catholic world.
I believe that he has rightfully deserved the total appreciation of the World public with his great efforts to strengthen the fundemental human rights, freedom and democracy. His loss is the lost of international community.
May Allah rest his soul in peace.
I would like to express my feelings of condolences to you and to all the Catholic World.
