Abrahamic Legacy at the Heart of Moroccan Society’s Unity, Modernity – Advisor to HM the King

Speaking in the ceremonial hall of the Vatican City’s prestigious five-century-old Pontifical University, Azoulay highlighted “the centrality of the Moroccan word when it comes to respect and fidelity to the Abrahamic legacy.”

In this context, the Advisor to HM the King stressed that this legacy remains “the foundation of unity, coherence and singular legitimacy of inter-religious dialogue when it bears the Moroccan signature.”

Alongside His Eminence Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Vatican Secretary of State, and Morocco’s Ambassador to the Holy See Rajae Naji Mekkaoui, Azoulay recalled the “secular depth of the relations Morocco has maintained over the centuries with the Holy See, and which has culminated with His Holiness Pope Francis’ historic visit to Morocco in March 2019.”

HM King Mohammed VI and His Holiness Pope Francis’ proposed roadmap to the community of nations has been and will be a landmark for billions of believers, Muslims, Christians and Jews in search of mutual respect and serenity, embodied by the hopes and promises of Abraham’s prophecy, added Azoulay.

He also expressed his gratitude to His Holiness Pope Francis for his efforts to bring about a new era of peace, and to the organizers of this symposium who have put Morocco at the heart of this forum dedicated to “the common word and spirituality acting.”

According to him, “this choice owes nothing to chance or to the complacency of anyone, it is a legitimate recognition of the excellent and exemplary path taken by our country to rebuild and consolidate a national consensus on the values of listening, sharing and progress.”

This conference is part of the commemoration of the historic Royal Visits of His Majesty Hassan II and His Majesty King Mohammed VI, in 1980 and 2000 respectively, to the Vatican City.

It also goes in the framework of the actions carried out by the Embassy of the Kingdom in order to further strengthen the age-old bonds of friendship and cooperation between Morocco and the Holy See.
