Pope Francis Meets with Abbas, Calls Him 'An Angel of Peace'

Monday, May 18, 2015 | , Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- Pope Francis warmly welcomed Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas on the latter's visit to the Vatican today (Saturday). The Pope even went so far as to call Abbas "an angel of peace," Arutz Sheva reported.

Though he is Muslim, Abbas flew to the Vatican in order to participate in tomorrow's canonization of two new Arab saints. The two nuns lived during the 19th century in what was then known as Ottoman-ruled Palestine.

Pope Francis's compliment towards Abbas came when the two exchanged gifts. The Pope gave Abbas a medallion that represents the angel of peace defeating the "bad spirit of war," and said that it is appropriate because "you are an angel of peace." In return, Abbas gave the Pope relics from the new saints. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/195474#.VVmQ7_m6dhF" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. The pope did NOT say that Abbas is an angel of peace. He said "May you be an angel of peace. Other news sites have already corrected this article. I expect Worthynews better correct it soon. Oh BTW, nice satan reference from a christian. Stop the hate already.

  2. Excuse me. He did NOT say this. See article below unless you prefer prejudice and a divided church ... This was misreported. Can people for God's sake stop calling my Catholic faith and Church which comes directly from Jesus, via Peter, via the Church Fathers (read them!) evil? Catholics have to put up with Protestant hatred on these sites too often and here it goes again.

  3. And Worthy News since when did you start just rehashing and circulating mainstream media lies? I thought you were better than that? Can you all bear in mind how scandalized were those around Jesus when he went to eat with sinners? Did he not say "it is not the healthy who need a doctor"? He reaches out to sinners to transform them. Please pray for God to show you the Catholic Church does not deserve your contempt but your love. Thank you and God bless
