In the matter of religious tolerance, “simple tolerance isn’t enough!” said Monsignor Ivan Jurkovic, the Holy See’s Permanent Observer at the United Nations in Geneva, during a meeting in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on November 22, 2020. “It’s about seeking mutual enrichment,” he explained.

Invited by Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Issa, Secretary-General of the World Muslim League, the Archbishop took part in the presentation of the book “The Promotion of the Inter-Cultural and Inter-Religious Dialogue as Instrument for Peace and Fraternity.”

In his intervention, pointing out “the growing tendencies to egoism and to individualism,” he stressed that fraternity “is essential.” In fact, the great problem today stems from the fact that “differences are often experienced in terms of conflict.”  However, “the recognition of a mutual fraternity can change this perspective, it can reverse conflicts.”

Praise the Lord
