So well put:

We are so “full” of ourselves that there is no room left for God. And that means there is no room for others either, for children, for the poor, for the stranger.

By reflecting on that one simple saying about the lack of room at the inn, we have come to see how much we need to listen to Saint Paul’s exhortation: “Be transformed by the renewal of your mind” (Rom 12:2). Paul speaks of renewal, the opening up of our intellect (nous), of the whole way we view the world and ourselves.

The last few paragraphs are confounding. Does the Pope truly believe that the muslims and the Christians share the same God? If he does, then he is sadly wrong. Until the truth is told about that, then the quest for peace will go unanswered.
