Dialogue is based on hope and love, and will bear fruit in the Spirit ... those engaged in this dialogue must be consistent with their own religious traditions and convictions, and be open to understanding those of the other party without pretense or close-mindedness, but with truth, humility and frankness, knowing that dialogue can enrich each side (St. John Paul II, Redemptoris Missio #56).Let’s ask God to fill our conversations with this hope and love. Let’s strive for greater humility. Let’s steep our lives in prayer and ask the Holy Spirit to work in and through us, so that we may bring the Gospel to others. Whether we embark on mission trips or welcome missionaries to our front porches this summer, let’s focus on bringing Christ’s love and compassion every person we meet.
