Worthy Christian News » Pope Francis goes off script in Jerusalem and calls Muslims 'dear brothers'

Pope Francis kicked off his Monday with a swing through the Dome of the Rock, a holy spot for three religions – Christianity, Judaism and Islam – and a call for universal peace, his signature message.

He also deviated a bit from script when speaking to Muslims in Jerusalem, calling them "dear brothers" rather than the expected "dear friends," The Associated Press reported.

"May we respect and love one another as brothers and sisters," he said, AP reported. "May we learn to understand the suffering of others. May no one abuse the name of God through violence."
