Cardinal: interreligious dialogue counters modern deafness to God

February 26, 2016

Addressing an interfaith conference in Qatar, the president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue said that “we have to teach the contents of our respective beliefs, and we mustn’t be afraid of denouncing the behavior of groups that have nothing to do with the religious approach of life”

Interreligious dialogue is “a necessity because the problems are not religion[s], but their followers,” said Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, according to a Jordanian Catholic news site.

Cardinal Tauran added:

Jews, Christians and Muslims are more and more aware that together they can remedy the deafness of modern society to God. We need to continue even in troublesome context of today, our meetings, our dialogue in order to listen, to understand, to suggest, and do so, to open the way to a sincere dialogue and common work.
