“The Church regards with esteem also the Muslims . . . . Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Muslims, this sacred synod urges all . . to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all humankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom.” - Nostra Aetate 3, Vatican II
In this spirit,
