Abu Dhabi Document Came From God? (Quo Vadis, Pope Francis? Part 212)

No, Pope Francis, the Abu Dhabi document did not come from God but only from you. God has nothing to do with it, as it is not in accordance with His will, and it contradicts age-old Catholic teachings.

Pope Francis says Abu Dhabi document ‘came from God’ and you ‘can’t understand it otherwise’

'It was something that came from God,' Francis said. 'You can't understand it otherwise, because none of us had this in mind.'

at Sheikh Zayed Mosque on February 4, 2019 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Pope Francis will visit the UAE this year for a landmark, three-day visit. It will be the first time a Pope has ever come to the United Arab Emirates.

Pope Francis defended his controversial Abu Dhabi document which claimed that “diversity of religions” is “willed by God,” saying that it was “something that came from God.”

In an interview during his return flight from Bahrain on Sunday, Francis answered a question regarding the “Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and living together,” which the Pope signed together with the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar in Abu Dhabi in 2019.

“I have been thinking a lot these days – and we talked about it with the Grand Imam – about how the idea of the Abu Dhabi Document came about,” Francis said.

The Pope went on to explain how the idea of the Abu Dhabi document was born during a lunch with the Grand Imam where they broke bread and gave it to each other as a “gesture of friendship.”

“And towards the end, I don’t know who came up with the idea, we said, ‘Why don’t we make a paper about this meeting?’” Francis stated. “So the Abu Dhabi document was born.”

“The two secretaries got to work, with a draft going back and forth, and finally, we took advantage of the Abu Dhabi meeting to publish it.”
