· The anniversary of John Paul II’s Beatification ·
Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran reminisced over John Paul II’s vision of interreligious dialogue at a conference held on Tuesday evening, 8 May. The meeting was part of an initiative in Rome organized by the Polish Embassy to the Holy See to commemorate the first anniversary of Pope Wojtyła’s Beatification. In the Vatican’s Chancellery building, after the introduction by Ambassador Anna Suchocka, the Cardinal President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue — who in the last part of Wojtyła’s Pontificate held the post of Secretary for Relations with States (1999-2003) — recalled how for John Paul II interreligious dialogue was an integral part of the mission ad gentes of the Church. Stressing the importance of dialogue between faiths in the Pope’s thought, the French Cardinal underlined that such dialogue must be directed “to purification and inner conversion” in order to be spiritually fruitful.
