Up today is the next portion of the Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions.
“The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions.”
This is the oft-quoted line from Nostra Aetate‘s article 2. Every religion tries to grapple with the recurring questions of humanity and to give guidance in how to live. Not all of this is consistent with Catholic teaching, of course, but not all of it is opposed either. This common ground means we have common goals and a starting point for dialogue.
Article 2 also singles out Hinduism and Buddhism in drawing out these points.
There is one Scripture citation today:
And one footnote:
4. Cf 2 Cor. 5:18-19
