Church: European Bishops, meeting on relations with Islam

5th Meeting of nationale Delegates in Scutari in February

05 February, 10:37
(ANSA) - TRIESTE - Looking at Islam not only as a set of behavioral norms, but as a religion, with its own spirituality, its own religiosity and its own theological reflection: this is what the national delegates of the Bishops' conferences in Europe for relations with Muslims intend to discuss in their meeting in Scutari next 7-9 February.

Holding the meeting for the first time in Albania at the invitation of the Archbishop of Scutari-Pult, Mgr Angelo Massafra OFM, the meeting testifies to the interest and the capillary work of the Catholic Church in Europe for dialogue with the believers of the other religions present on the continent, in particular with the Muslim community.

This year the chosen approach will foster a theological-spiritual reflection and the exchange of initiatives and good practices put in place by the Church in the field of relations with other religions. (ANSA).
