Another round of ecumenical dialogue in Assisi!

At his Angelus Address on 1 January the Holy Father announced that, 25 years after the inter-religious meeting as Assisi, he will visit Assisi in October 2011 for a meeting with “Christian brothers of the different confessions, leaders of the world’s religious traditions, and, ideally, all men of good will”.

Oh joy!

The first meeting was such a success!

Card. Ratzinger absented himself from the 1986 confab at Assisi.

I’ll keep the combox closed on this.

One Response to Another round of ecumenical dialogue in Assisi!

  1. Fr. Basil wrote to me saying:

    The Pope’s flock includes non-Catholic Christians, as well as
    non-Christians and atheists.

    As the first under-shepherd after Christ, he has to do what he thinks
    is prudent to reach them.

    Little old me in Phoenix may not appropriately do this sort of thing,
    but he’s in an entirely different position.
