It was the day that changed the world: September 11, 2001. It made inter-religious dialogue a priority. For some it's still a challenge but progress has been made. Miguel Díaz
U.S Ambassador to the Holy See“The effort to bridge those differences, especially when it comes to religion. We must never allow God or religion to be used as a force for destruction.”
Miguel Díaz is the U.S Ambassador to the Holy See. He says, since the attacks of September 11th, several organizations, embassies and the Vatican have made an effort to increase not only inter-religious dialogue, but international communication in general.
On that deadly morning nearly 3,000 people lost their lives. But the impact had no number or borders. Miguel Díaz
U.S Ambassador to the Holy See“The city of New York was a microcosm of the World Community, the pain in New York was a pain that was shared across the world.”
Diaz says it's a time to honor the victims. But also a time to reflect on inter-religious dialogue, its progress and challenges.
