Pope tells Indian bishops everyone benefits from religious tolerance

Despite the challenge, the pope said living Catholicism with sensitivity and creativity, will give a convincing account of hope. He also noted that the best way to achieve religious freedom for all people is by living in tolerance with those of other faiths.India is a country with a history of religious violence, most notably between Hindus and Muslims during the 20th century.
