Muslims Attend Catholic Mass: All across France, Muslims attended Catholic Mass as a show of unity after church attack claimed the life of a Catholic priest.  As previously reported by NPR, two men attacked a church in the small town of Saint-Étienne-du-Rouvray near Rouen on Tuesday, and slit 85-year-old Jacques Hamel’s throat.

The attack was later claimed by the Islamic State through its Aamaq news agency. The French Muslim council CFCM called for the gesture “to show their ‘solidarity and compassion’ over the priest’s murder. There was a particularly strong turnout at the cathedral in Rouen, near the site of the attack.  According to Rouen’s archbishop Dominique Lebrun, “We are very moved by the presence of our Muslim friends and I believe it is a courageous act that they did by coming to us.” See full story …npr.org
