Catholicism and Other Faiths

from Paul McKenna, Scarboro Missions Interfaith Dept., Toronto, Ontario

In this short but poignant article, Canadian dialogue theologian, Fr. Ovey Mohammed S.J., outlines the Catholic Church’s evolving historical stance toward other religions. Before the Second Vatican Council of the 1960s, the Church’s attitude toward other religions was negative. Since the Council, the Church’s attitude has become much more positive and embracing. Mohammed describes this vital shift and comments on the interfaith challenges faced by modern Catholics.
