Dear Sisters and Brothers:
Please join with me in praying that those in Florida contemplating burning the Koran, will decide not to do this hateful act on September 11, 2010 or at any other time.
For those who follow Islam, the Koran is their Holy Book. Any act to desecrate the Koran is a most serious offense against the religious sensibilities of our Muslim sisters and brothers as well as all believers. We follow a loving Jesus who seeks peace and love for all people.
We also ask for God’s grace to assist each of us to look deep within to uncover our own tendencies to close out God’s love in our hearts and actions.
May God continue to bless you and guide you.
Most Reverend Joseph A. Galante, J.C.D., D.D.
Bishop of Camden
