Pope Francis and Inter-Religious Dialogue:
Reflections on Frat
elli Tutti

Wednesday, April 27th at 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. (ET)
4:00 - 5:30 p.m. (PT)       5:00 - 6:30 p.m. (MT)       6:00 - 7:30 p.m. (CT)

All interested members are invited to a  CTSA-sponsored panel and conversation.

In Fratelli Tutti, Pope Francis notes, "Unlike disagreement and conflict, persistent and courageous dialogue does not make headlines, but quietly helps the world to live much better than we imagine" (FT 198). This latest encyclical emphasizes the universal call to dialogue, the importance of local cultures and contexts, and in its last chapter passionately highlights the role that inter-religious dialogue plays in creating a world of justice and peace.  As we prepare for our convention, "Thinking Catholic Interreligiously", we invite you to a virtual panel examining Pope Francis and inter-religious dialogue in Fratelli Tutti
