A Catholic Church In Saudi Arabia? It Could Happen

The very fact that negotiations are occuring is very encouraging (Wash Times)

The Vatican is negotiating with authorities in Saudi Arabia for permission to build the country’s first Roman Catholic church, sources in the Holy See said yesterday.

The move evidently heralds a major policy change toward the nearly 1 million Christians working in the unbendingly conservative Wahhabi kingdom.

Riyadh and the Holy See have been holding discreet discussions on the sensitive issue for several weeks and the two sides are “locked together,” said Archbishop Mounged El-Hachem, the papal nuncio, or Vatican ambassador, to the Persian Gulf states of Kuwait, Qatar, Yemen and the United Arab Emirates.

If it happens, this would be a major shift in attitudes from one of the premiere terrorism supporting nations of the world, and could signal an opening of their Muslim society, and true tolerance.

So far, the Christian church which was opened in Qatar recently has done well. There have been no attacks, no violence.
