Reaction to the Beautiful Names

The Concert was controversial, and there were many objections to staging a meditation inspired by the Muslim faith in the Cathedral. We also received a great number of encouraging messages from Catholics.

There was dignified and prayerful demonstration on the Piazza before the Concert. The photos are from Marcin Mazur.

Well done for showing that the concert wasn't entirely well received. It would have been easy just to pass over the difficulties many of us had with it.

Fr Mark, as you know, I strongly disagreed with the concert being held in the Cathedral and took a leading part in the protest against it.

I am grateful to you for your generous and fair-minded depiction of the protest alongside your coverage of the concert itself.
