First time I met a Muslim (Indonesia)

After attending a meeting of SSCC world leaders in Bandung, Father Camille Sapu sscc and Sr. Véronique Lundolo sscc visited the SSCC priests at Saint Odilia Catholic Church - Citra Raya - Tangerang Regency. They made this visit before they returned to their country, the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Hearing about the visit of Father Camille and Sr Veronica, Kyai Haji Ardani (Leader of the Daarul Fallahiyah Assalafiyah Cisoka Islamic Boarding School - Tangerang and Deputy Chair of FKUB/ Religious Harmony Forum), on Saturday 16 September 2023, met them and conveyed brotherly greetings.

The meeting was filled with friendly conversations in the middle of lunch together. Kyai Haji Ardani conveyed to Father Camille that Islam really respects other religions while citing its postulates in the Al-Quran.

Father Camille was very impressed when he met Kyai Haji Ardani because it was the first time in his life he had met Muslims. He explained that Catholics are the majority in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He was very touched by the inter-religious brotherhood in Indonesia in general, and in Tangerang Regency in particular. This beautiful meeting encouraged Father Camille and Kyai Haji Ardani to continue to preach inter-religious harmony.

Also present at this beautiful meeting were Father Felix Supranto sscc, Father Valent Sedu Ritan sscc (France), Father Ajith Kumar Antony Dass sscc (India), Father Thomas Waluyo sscc (Bandung), Brother Ivan, Pr, and Brother Agung Nugraha sscc.
