Elder Patrick Kearon of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles has shared a Ramadan greeting with Muslims around the world. The Islamic holy month begins today, March 10, 2024, and ends on Monday, April 8.

“I’m pleased to send my Ramadan greetings to all our Muslim brothers and sisters around the globe,” said Elder Kearon, who was raised in the United Kingdom and the Middle East. “I’ve spent many years living and working with Muslims in various parts of the world. I’ve gained an increased understanding and greater admiration for the faithful through these interactions.”

Elder Kearon noted that Ramadan, a month of daily fasting from dawn to sunset, highlights a commonality between Muslims and Latter-day Saints.

“Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints [also] believe that these acts of devotion have the power to uplift our lives, bringing us closer to the light and love of God and each other,” Elder Kearon said. “I’ve seen how Ramadan can bring people together and foster unity in communities.

“As a disciple of Jesus Christ,” the Apostle concluded, “I pray that this month will bless all who seek God in their lives. I hope you find joy and peace during this special time of Ramadan.”
