Court of the Gentiles: Benedict XVI Urges Believers and Nonbelievers to Dialogue

Last edited 30th March 2011

Benedict XVI concluded the meeting of the 'Court of the Gentiles' with a videoconference. The conference is being promoted by the Vatican to improve dialogue between believers and nonbelievers. The meeting took place in Paris. The pope addressed the thousands who were in attendance at the Notre Dame Cathedral, saying that God "is not a danger to society" but is "one of the great questions of our time."

He stressed the importance of breaking down the walls that exist between believes and nonbelievers, which he said are often "born of mutual ignorance, skepticism or indifference."
