Catholic, Muslim leaders celebrate US interfaith dialogue
CWN – October 11, 2012
The leaders of the three regional official Catholic-Muslim dialogues in the United States gathered in Chicago from October 3-5 to celebrate past accomplishments and looked forward to future discussions.
In a keynote address, Father Tom Michel, SJ, said that dialogue is enhanced when participants are faithful to their own traditions. “Muslims must glory in the prophethood of Muhammad and the Qur’anic message that he brought, just as Christians must glory in the cross of Jesus Christ and our faith in what God has accomplished in him for all humankind,” he said.
