Witness to Christ with love pope tells Catholics in UAE

ABU DHABI (CNS): Meeting with tens of thousands of Catholics living in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Pope Francis urged them to be meek, peaceful and express their Christian identity by loving others.
 
The Catholic community in the UAE, which numbers close to a million, includes foreign workers from roughly 100 nations, but particularly India and the Philippines. They filled the stadium at Abu Dhabi’s Zayed Sports City and the open spaces around the complex for the pope’s February 5 Mass.
