The Vatican's new YouTube channel has posted a short video about a dialogue this past week between the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (PCID) and a Muslim partner, the Permanent Committee of Al-Azhar for the Dialogue with Monotheistic Religions.
[Centro Televisivo Vaticano, February 24, 2009] Mutual understanding and respect: with this theme began today the traditional encounter between the Permanent Committee of Al-Azhar for the Dialogue with Monotheistic Religions and the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue.The annual reunion of the Joint Committee, ending February 26th, provides the opportunity to examine the specific role of religions in the promotion of a pedagogy and culture of peace between peoples.Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, President of the Vatican dicastery, underlined that truth should always guide dialogue between religions: "The Pope has greatly insisted upon this issue. Dialogue is important, but it should not lead to syncretism or relativism. I always say: interreligious dialogue does not consist in saying that all religions say more or less the same thing. It means that every believer, every searcher of God, has the same dignity. This is interreligious dialogue, in charity, but first of all in truth."
