The president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue thanked Muslims who have accepted Benedict XVI’s clarification of his address at the University of Regensburg.

Cardinal Paul Poupard’s gratitude resonated in the Campidoglio, Rome’s town hall, during today’s ceremony to launch an interreligious journal entitled Know One Another to Live Together.

“In this very difficult moment,” the cardinal said, “we cannot fail to remember the invitation to dialogue launched by the Pope as a vital need on which our future depends.”

“In these headquarters I thank all those who have received positively the final words of the Pope in Sunday’s Angelus and we reaffirm our mutual respect,” he added.

The meeting ended with a handshake between the cardinal and Sami Salem, the imam of Rome’s mosque, and Riccardo Di Segni, chief rabbi of Rome.
