A message from Bishop Malesic to the Muslim community of Northeast Ohio

News of the Diocese

April 10, 2024

My dear Muslim friends,

As you begin the celebrations of Eid al-Fitr, I wish to offer a heartfelt greeting of peace and my sincere regards as you conclude your monthlong vigil of fasting, prayer and works of mercy.

In a spirit of deep respect and friendship, I recall and offer the words of Pope Francis who said, “When we show respect for the religion of our neighbors or when we offer them our good wishes on the occasion of a religious celebration, we seek to share their joy.”

In spiritual unity, I share your joy and offer my personal and prayerful good wishes during this time of celebration. May your lives give glory to the Almighty and bring peace, hope and joy to you and those you hold dear.

Happy Feast to you all.
