Salaam Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Here is news that a friend sent to me:

This was on a Turkish newspaper site today. Press "baslat" on the video window. It's in Turkish but you can still see what it looked like. Apparently this is the first time in history that a ritual related to Islam took place inside the Vatican. It says that the cardinals, priests, everyone loved it. (Actually they said they were enthralled!)
