In a conversation with a Non-Catholic Christian friend of mine, the issue of our dear Pope John Paul’s relationship with Islam came up. I know that documents like Nostra Aetate and Lumen Gentium have established that Muslims are “included in the plan of salvation” and that we all worship the same God. I know that the subject of the Holy Father kissing the Koran might inevitably come up. What should I say regarding this? Any insight would be appreciated.
