All faiths must learn to live together, Pope tells ecumenical meeting
CWN - September 12, 2011
In a message to an ecumenical meeting in Munich, Pope Benedict XVI wrote: “Everything depends on our readiness to understand living together as a commitment and a gift, on finding the path to true coexistence.”
“This shared life once meant remaining within the confines of a particular region,” the Pope continued; “but today it is inevitably experienced at a universal level; today it is all humankind that must live together.” He said that meetings such as the Assisi inter-faith gathering to pray for peace are important steps toward that goal.
The Pope’s message was addressed to a meeting jointly sponsored by the Munich archdiocese and the St. Egidio community, taking place in the German city from September 11-13.
