    Since papal conclaves have a cutoff age of 80 and tend to elect Popes from their own number, Benedict is likely to be the last Pontiff who can say, "We remember," and mean it literally. As the church's center of gravity moves southward, he may also be one of the last European Popes, and ...

    Leveraging inter-religious dialogue into transformative action using practical theology’s reflexive frameworks (2)

    There are authors who believe that practical theology must appropriate for itself an even broader frame of reference. It should restrict itself neither to Christianity nor to the world religions, but should take as its object the desire for transcendent meaning which ...

    Il y a 25 ans, au moment du rassemblement d’Assise, je n’étais pas versé dans la spiritualité. Celle-ci me paraissait être le fait d’êtres aux esprits poétiques et superstitieux ayant besoin de se raccrocher à des croyances pour donner un sens à leur vie ou masquer la peur de la mort. Mais depuis cette époque mon entendement a fait quelques sauts successifs qui lui ont ouvert de nouveaux horizons sacrés. Fort heureusement !

    There’s no doubt that many church leaders here do feel threatened by Islam, by the fervour of its followers, by the lack of freedom to convert to Christianity and by the fundamentalist minorities who can make life hard for Christians in many African, Asian or Middle Eastern nations. But as plenty of participants are pointing out, an open, honest dialogue, in love and respect for the others, is the only effective way to avoid conflict...
