The Holy Father releasing a dove today during the Angelus.
Peace between faith and reason, in Lebanon and Gaza, says Pope
Once more Benedict XVI calls for a dialogue between faith and reason to avoid today’s cultural “schizophrenia” and conflict with non Western cultures. He sees St Thomas Aquinas as bridge between western and Arab thought. He makes a special appeal for an end to violence in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip. He releases two white doves, symbol of peace, with Azione Cattolica youth, telling them: “You are the true messengers of peace.” He mentions World Day of Leprosy.
