Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
Thanks for highlighting the post in my blog. You mentioned in your email to me that the Muslims learned to pray five times a day from us. Thay may well be, though my googling doesn't indicate any link from the Islamic perspective.I once got a 'wallop'for commenting in another blog that we can learn from the faithfulness to prayer of observant Muslims. The person who in her comment asked more or less, 'How dare you suggest such a thing, that we Christians can learn anything from Muslims?' I tracked down her own blog and found that she featured quite a bit of Islamic art on it!When my late classmate, Monsignor Desmond Hartford, was kidnapped in 1997 while Apostolic Administrator of Marawi, one of a small number of predominantly Muslim areas in the Philippines, his captors sent for his Breviary when he asked for it. Muslim leaders, both religious and political, with whom he had developed a trusting friendship, negotiated his safe release. They had great respect for him as a man of prayer.
