VATICAN CITY (AFP) - Pope Francis on Wednesday called for “friendship and respect” among all faiths at a meeting with representatives of major world religions in the Vatican. The Roman Catholic Church would “promote friendship and respect between men and women of different religions,” the pope said, a day after his formal inauguration in St Peter’s Square. “We can do a lot for the good of people who are poor, who are weak, who suffer... and to promote reconciliation and peace,” the pope told them. Representatives of Orthodox Christianity, Judaism and Islam were among those present at the meeting.
