Interfaith Spirituality: The Spirit Breathes Wherever the Spirit Wills
Presented by Father Thomas P. Bonocci, C.P.
October 9-11, 2015

It is quite important to establish principles by which we might dialogue, encounter, and appreciate the religious practitioner of a “Faith” Tradition other than our own. We do so that we might re-encounter our own faith tradition with the mind and heart born of our encounter with others. We will read anew key passages from the Bible in light of the Traditions of Humankind. We do so since the Spirit of God has been poured out upon all peoples. Perhaps we are on the verge of a truly “Global Spirituality” in which the wisdom of the Faith Traditions interconnect and interrelate to the delight and transformation of all humankind.
