Meeting with others

This morning, while the WYD pilgrims were participating in their third and final catechesis session this morning, the Holy Father held a series of meetings with representatives of other Christian churches and with representatives of other faiths who live here in Australia.

During his meetings today, the Holy Father urged members of all faiths to unite against 'indiscriminate violence' in the name of religion. These meetings with members of other churches and with those who follow other faith traditions have become a trademark of the outreach gestures that the Holy Father initiates.

The texts of the Holy Father's speeches during the Eccumenical meeting held in the crypt of Saint Mary's Cathedral this morning and of his speech with representatives of other religions, held in the Chapter House of the Cathedral detail his gestures of reconciliation tendered today.
