Card Gracias stresses the role of education in promoting interreligious harmony
A symposium on interfaith dialogue is held in Mumbai. Although Catholic schools have been attacked in India, inside "teachers and students of every religion must be encouraged to join the quest for peace by examining our own readiness to forgive others and to be reconciled, and by making gestures of forgiveness and reconciliation." What is needed is a cultural revolution and an ethic of justice, and reconciliation "is indispensable for the promotion of peace in society".
