At an international colloquium marking the 65th anniversary of the Catholic University of Congo (UCC), in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), the Cardinal in the Central African Republic (CAR) has underscored the importance of interreligious dialogue in peace building.
Delivering the inaugural lecture Tuesday, April 26, Dieudonné Cardinal Nzapalainga said the numerous crises some countries in the world face today can be resolved through interreligious dialogue.
“Interreligious dialogue is an indispensable path to peace building in the world today and deserves to be considered an absolute necessity and the deepest aspiration of the human race,” Cardinal Nzapalainga said.
In his lecture titled, “Interreligious Dialogue at the Service of Peace for a New Humanism”, the Cardinal added that with the health crisis and the war in Ukraine and the various armed conflicts in several African countries, “the call for the construction of a school of peace is of vital importance.”
To achieve this, the member of the Congregation of the Holy Spirit (Spiritans) said, “It is necessary and inevitable to open up and dialogue with other religions.”
