protocol and expressing his unique humility, Pope Francis bowed before Queen Rania of Jordon, who was visiting the Vatican with her husband, King Abdullah II.

It will not go unnoticed that Queen Rania is a Muslim.

In his five months as pontiff, Francis has washed the feet of at least one Muslim woman and has now bowed before a Muslim queen.

Francis made no discernable bow toward her husband, the king.

His acts of humility offer the world a unique kind of inter-faith dialogue.

A Vatican official later was reported to have said, “Pope Francis is not interested in protocol.”

About The Voice Of Bombay's Catholic Laity

Bombay Laity Ezekiel’s Chapter 3 Task as Watchman 17 “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. 18 When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for[b] their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood. 19 But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
