Pope in the Court of the Gentiles
This is the video link of the Pope speaking to the "Court of Gentiles" at Notre Dame du Paris.
I find this fascinating, though I am not sure I fully understand what this initiative is about, yet. It is obviously very important to the Pope and intimately connected to the New Evangelisation.
It is about dialogue with non-believers obviously. It seems to be about dialogue, simply for the sake of dialogue, forming friendships, listening, responding, being in the public forum but presumably it isn't about the type of dialogue that took place in the 60s/70's between Catholics and Marxist that led to the Church, in some places, being taken over by Marxists.
