The Church enters into dialogue with the world in which it lives, because God has first entered into dialogue with us. Pope Francis has stressed that “either we stand together with the culture of dialogue and encounter, or we all lose”. He has summoned us to enter with courage “into the Areopagus of contemporary cultures”, to dialogue with science, with non-believers, with other religious traditions and with other Christian communities. Why, how, and where do such ecumenical, inter-faith and cultural conversations take place? Why does faithfulness to the Gospel now summon us to be a Church in dialogue?
