ROME – Pope Francis surprised a Muslim family as he visited a housing project in Milan during the weekend.
During the visit, he stopped at the home of Mihoual Abdel Karim, a Muslim immigrant from Morocco who lives there with his wife and three children.
“It was very emotional. It was like having a friend in the house,” said Karim, who works at a pharmaceutical factory and whose wife wears the veil, Reuters reported.
They offered him a snack of sweets, nuts, dates and milk. He was also given presents and painting.
