Why do Catholics need to know
anything about other religions?
In exploring the five major religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam and Christianity) in my course at Georgetown University, my purpose is not to view world religions through a Christian lens as such but to help my students look at followers of major religious traditions as persons of faith who are open to dialogue. Giving students the freedom to articulate their understandings while providing them with a foundation upon which to base their explorations usually results in not a diminishment, but a strengthening of their faith. They learn more about themselves and are better able to understand the role different religions have played and continue to play in the growth and development of the U.S. The class is an effort to live up to the mandate of Vatican II to engage in inter-religious dialogue that promotes greater harmony and understanding among the many peoples and nations of this rapidly shrinking world. Dialogue also addresses the hopes outlined by Saint Pope John Paul II: "...The eve of the Year 2000 will provide a great opportunity, especially in view of the events of recent decades, for inter-religious dialogue. ... ln this dialogue the Jews and Muslims ought to have a pre-eminent place" (The Coming Third Millennium).
