A time for healing in India

Posted on June 24, 2009. Filed under: News | Tags: , , , , , , |

Fr. Cleophas Fernandes, Director of the National Biblical Catechetical and Liturgical Center (NBCLC), said that the institute will do all it can to help inter-faith experts address problems caused by the attacks on Christians, in which about 80 people died and nearly 30,000 were displaced. It comes as Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, President of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue reported that a meeting between Hindu and Catholic leaders in Mumbai (Bombay) on June 12th had opened a new era.

Organized under the leadership of Archbishop Raphael Cheenath, these workshops have run in places where Christians were still thought to be at risk.

Making interreligious dialogue perhaps more difficult than it need be, those of us interested in the religious domain tend to miss the obvious: that we share an interest in the same domain. Our intra-domain differences, I submit, are dwarfed by the distance from our planet to others…such as the planet of the stock market enthusists. For more, if you are interested, pls see my post. http://deligentia.wordpress.com/2009/10/31/missing-the-obvious-in-religious-discussion-something-we-have-in-common/
