INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE

A Interreligious dialogue is a positive, cooperative, and constructive interaction between people of different traditions or religious or spiritual beliefs, both at the individual and institutional levels. Since the O.S.J. besides promoting ecumenism, we promote understanding between different religions to increase the acceptance of others looking for the constructive reciprocal treatment between religions and spiritual movements that do not have a common Christian root.

In the Declaration of Vatican Council II, entitled Nostra Eatate, on the relations of the Church with non-Christian religions, one of the milestones in the propitiation of inter-religious dialogue, which spread through the Secretariat for non-Christians, instituted by H.H. Pope Paul VI in 1964, and continued with the Pontifical Council for the interreligious dialogue created by H.H. Pope John Paul II in 1988 with the Apostolic Constitution Pastor Bonus. This policy is now followed by H.H Pope Francis.
