From: Vatican II in Plain English
With Pope Francis, the Franciscan Family celebrates the 800th anniversary of the meeting of Br. Francis and Br. Illuminato with Sultan Malek al Kamil. Considering the Pope’s efforts, let’s take a moment to reflect on what the church has to say in regard to our active involvement with non-Christian religions.
From Book 3 (from a set of three books) entitled The Decrees and Declarations, I have excerpted certain quotes.
Book 3 – The Decrees and Declarations – Chapter 4, The Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religions
(Although the “verses” below are written in psalm-scripture style in the book, I present them in paragraph form to save space.)
