"In the thirteenth century, when Christians demonized Muslims even more than they do today, Saint Francis told us friars that if we found a page of the Koran, we should kiss it and place it on the altar.

His Christian truth was not fear-based.

He could honor God and holiness anywhere it was found, and not just inside his own symbol system.”

- Fr. Richard Rohr (The Naked Now)
