(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis on Wednesday received a delegation of Muslims who presented him with an invitation to visit the Mosque of Rome.

The delegation included the imam Yahya Pallavicini from COREIS (The Islamic Community of Italy) and  Abdellah Redouane, the director of the Islamic Cultural Centre of Italy.

After the meeting, the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Father Federico Lombardi, SJ, said Pope Francis “study the invitation, and come to a decision,” but said he “would be cautious about a date.”

He added any dates being publicized in the press are “without foundation.”

Pope Francis made his first visit to Rome’s synagogue on Sunday.
