“It’s that [interfaith] time of the year again”

From Catholic World News:

“Interreligious competition wounds the image of religions and their followers, and it fosters the view that religions are not sources of peace, but of tension and violence,” the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue stated. “To prevent and overcome these negative consequences, it is important that we Christians and Muslims recall the religious and moral values that we share, while acknowledging our differences.”
The Dharmic religions to which the Pope refers in his comments are Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism.


The joint declaration was issued at the conclusion of a conference entitled “Dharma and Logos. Dialogue and collaboration in a complex era. Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jains and Sikhs.”


Pope Francis addressed his remarks to a Buddhist delegation from Thailand.
