‘Id al-Fitr Message 2013

I rejoice with you as you celebrate ‘Id al-Fitr which concludes the month of Ramadan. May manifold blessings be granted upon you as you deepen obedience to God through fasting, dedication to prayer with the Qur’an and the practice of charity to those in need; these time-honoured means are also held dear in our Catholic tradition in order to grow in authentic love of neighbour and holiness of life.
