The Church in India came into it's own after the Second Vatican council published the Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non Christian Religions , encouraging mutual understanding and dialogue between faiths.
Fr Joe illustrated through his presentation and lecture how Bede Griffiths pioneered this spirit ,which made the Church fully at home in India's culture and ethos.He explored how Bede and Mother Teresa's approaches complemented each other and impacted the masses through their unique blend of contemplation and selfless service. Fr Joe highlighted how Bede Griffiths fostered genuine interfaith dialogue and shared his own personal encounters with people from different faiths.
Fr Joe's lecture was appreciated by all those who were present.
