Another Invitation in the Offing?

Memorial of Pope St. John I

Following recent concerns about Iran's nuclear development and earlier comments from the Holy See critical of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's desire to see Israel wiped off the map, Pope Benedict is apparently to be the next recipient of a letter from him. The big questions, of course, are 1.) Whether this is a da'wa (call to become a Muslim), like the president received, or a friendly greeting such as delivered at Christmas, and 2.) How will the Holy Father respond? My guess is with love and maybe a lesson about the Church--but probably noy directly.
