You're very welcome:-)

Hello, Sumera,

Thank you for sharing your sketch here. Were you able to see the Pope in person? How was his visit in UAE? Was he received well considering UAE considering it’s not really a Christian country?

Dear Karen, thank you so much for your kind words. No, I didn't see the Pope in person. His visit confirmed UAE's tolerant nature. The UAE is a Muslim country but they respect every religion. It is a tolerant society where every culture and religion finds space. His visit was well received by the UAE government and the people. Pope Francis received great honour from everyone.

Hello, Sumera, I agree that UAE is tolerant indeed. Where are you in UAE? Just recently, Dubai lighted a building with our flag on it to commemorate our Independence Day. We felt the love!

I'm glad the Pope was treated well in a Muslim country. UAE exemplifies how we can respect one another despite religious differences. Hope it would be true to all. Hope you're having a great day!
