Christians and Hindus: Together in Promoting Religious Freedom

Monday, October 24, 2011

Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue, has addressed a message to Hindus for the feast of Deepavali. The message is entitled “Christians and Hindus: Together in Promoting Religious Freedom”. Deepavali celebrates the victory of truth over falsehood, light over darkness, life over death, good over evil. The celebrations, which begin this year on 26 October, last three days and mark the beginning of a new year, a time for family reconciliation, especially among brothers and sisters, and adoration of the Divine.

The CCCB Commission for Christian Unity, Religious Relations with the Jews, and Interfaith Dialogue is currently exploring avenues for interaction between Canadian Catholics and Hindus.
