German Muslims on their idea of a new Pope

Before the conclave today in Rome, the Central Council of Muslims in Germany (ZMD) and the movement "We Are Church" for spoke in support of a cosmopolitan Pope. In an interview with the "Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung" the ZMD-chairman Ayman Mazyek said he wanted a cosmopolitan pope who would introduce spirituality and a renewal of faith in God. "That would be a support for all the believers in the world, for Catholics, in all cases."

Christian Weisner, spokesman for "We Are Church" urged on the future Pope urgent reforms to inspire people to return to God. The Catholic Church must once again be a voice for justice, against poverty and exploitation. These new approaches are needed. He claimed that the new pope should neither stand close to Opus Dei nor the lay movement "Communion and Liberation".
