Rorate Caeli

An inauspicious start:
Assisi 2011

In his Angelus message today, Pope Benedict XVI announced that, on the 25th anniversary of the visit of Pope John Paul II to Assisi for the meeting of different religious leaders in 1986, he will visit Assisi in October 2011 for a meeting with "Christian brothers of the different confessions, leaders of the world's religious traditions, and, ideally, all men of good will".

Interreligious dialogue: as the massacre of Christians in Alexandria reminded us just today, "How's that workin' out for ya?"
