Francis Cardinal Arinze Introduction We are living in a world in which contacts between peoples, cultures, and religions are happily increasing. The Church lives and operates in this world. Not only are Christians very much a part of the world of today, but the Church herself appreciates more and more the elements of union and communion between peoples. She is moreover growing in her consciousness of her vocation to function as an instrument of unity and bridge-building. In our times, the Catholic Church has shown this particularly in her attitude towards the followers of other religions, especially as articulated in the Second Vatican Council (196265) and lived by the Church these last three decades. I am therefore happy to put before you some reflections on the Church and interreligious dialogue. After making clear what we mean by interreligious dialogue, I shall spell out reasons why the Church is convinced that she should engage in this apostolate. This will lead to a fuller exposition of how the Church looks at other religions. I will then consider the situation in Africa and in Asia before turning attention to the continents that are traditionally Christian. logos 4:1 winter 2001 the church
