Muslim prayers every Friday in Belgian Church

Catholic Church Conservation.

While their mosque is being restored, Muslims are being given the use of St Lambert in Jumme. Every Friday, (for Jummah) the Cross is removed, prayer mats laid and images hidden.

Henri Remy, the 89 year old parish priest rejoices in the dialogue in the spirit of the Council, "We pray to the same God, each in their own way", he says with emphasis.

Muslims believe once a building has been used for their prayers that they retain the right of use forever.

My dear Cure', what are you thinking? This is just another example of the New Ecumenism, "SHARE dialogue, EXAMINE commonalities, SEE past differences, but DON'T share the Gospel.

Do you think that while the Church is being remodelled that you could borrow the mosque to Celebrate the Mystery of the Mass?

Incidently the way things are goiong in Belgium with the increase in muslims it would only be a matter of time before your church became a mosque anyway.
