Catholic news site Gloria.tv reports:
On the eve of his visit to Morocco (March 30-31), Pope Francis said in a video message on VaticanNews.va that “as Christians and Muslims we believe in God, the Creator and Merciful”...
This message repeats Francis heretical Abu Dhabi declaration according to which the diversity of religions that contradict each other and religions which deny the Trinity and Incarnation are willed by God.
Of course, there are also some Orthodox Christian bishops (e.g., Met. Georges Khodr) who preach religious syncretism, pan-ecumenism, dhimmitude and submission to Islam, but when the Pope of Rome does this on the global stage, cue the "Last Pope Prophecies" trailers. The Apostate Pope's heretical teachings are clearly a sign of the age.
Traditional, orthodox-minded Roman Catholics, come to Orthodoxy. We are waiting for you with open arms!

The Pope to the Christians of Morocco: Please do not need to preach
BBC Middle East, March 31, 2019 (Google Translate from Arabic)
Thanks to Timothy R. Furnish.
The Pope, Francis, told members of the small Catholic community in Morocco that the role of community members in the country is not to try to make their neighbors convert to Christianity, but to live in brotherhood with other religions.
The Pope took the two-day trip to emphasize interreligious dialogue, while supporting King Mohammed VI's efforts to promote religious moderation in order to promote interfaith dialogue and renounce violence in the name of religion.
Roman Catholic Christians in Morocco represent less than one percent of Morocco's 35 million population, while there are 23,000 Christians, mostly immigrants from sub-Saharan Africa and those from Europe, particularly France.
"Christians are a small minority in this country, and I see that this is not a problem, although I realize that this may be difficult for some of you," he said during a meeting with community leaders in a Rabat cathedral.
Catholic conservatives have repeatedly criticized the pope's anti-organized stance aimed at attracting those who could be included in the Christian faith.
This is the meaning of my dear friends that our mission as devout, priestly, men and women devoted to religion is not determined by the number or size of the space we occupy, as determined by our ability to bring about change and the spread of mercy. "
Moroccan authorities do not recognize converts to Christianity from Moroccans. Many of them practice religious rituals secretly in their homes, especially since the conversion from Islam to Christianity is prohibited as is the case in many Muslim countries.
"The problem is not when we are few, but when we are unimportant," he said.
He added that Catholics must be an integral part of interfaith dialogue in a world "torn by policies of extremism and division."
"The need for interfaith dialogue," he said, adding that people should resist "categorizing themselves according to different ethical, social, ethnic or religious criteria."
On Saturday, Pope Francis and King Mohammed VI visited a religious institute set up by the Moroccan monarch to train imams and preachers of men and women.
Morocco promotes itself as an oasis of religious tolerance in a region torn by armed conflict, and allows advocates from Africa and Europe to learn about "moderate Islam."
The Pope praised the Moroccan monarch and offered "sound training to combat all forms of extremism that lead to violence and terrorism, which in any case are contrary to religion and disobedience to God himself."
On Saturday, Jewish leaders joined representatives of the Christian communities on two occasions, headed by Pope Benedict XVI and King Mohammed VI, as part of an interreligious dialogue.
