The Thirty-Fourth General Congregation on Interreligious Dialogue

In 1995 the Thirty Fourth General Congregation of the Society of Jesus promulgated Decree Five: Our Mission and Interreligious Dialogue. This document not only recognized religious pluralism as a fact of life in our times, but also insisted that interreligious encounter and dialogue must become accepted as an integral dimension of the ministries of Jesuits and those who work with Jesuits. While only a few can be "experts" on religions and dialogue, all of us will be able to engage in interreligious communication in our daily lives, our work for justice, and in the depths of our spiritual experience. "Our Mission and Interreligious Dialogue" is therefore the guiding measure for our commitment to dialogue in the United States, even though we must find ways of implementing its ideals that are appropriate to this American culture.

Jesuits in Dialogue: the Interreligious Dimension

At the 34th General Congregation, in the document "Our Mission and Interreligious Dialogue" , the Congregation delegates recommended that Fr. General set up a Secretariat for Interreligious Dialogue within the ambit of the Roman Curia. On 29 June 1996, in a letter to the whole Society, the General announced the creation of this secretariat. This newsletter, Jesuits in Dialogue, is a vital part of this ministry. The Jesuit Secretariat for Interreligious Dialogue can be contacted at: Jesuit Curia, C.P. 6139, 00195 Roma Prata, Italy; tel. (39-6) 689.77.568; fax: 687.5101; email: dialogue@sjcuria.org

Learning to Let Go: Francis Xavier, American Jesuits, and Religious Pluralism
Francis X Clooney, S.J.
The 450th anniversary of the death of St. Francis Xavier (1506-1552) provides us with an opportunity to reflect anew on mission and interreligious encounter as these developed in the first years of the Society of Jesus. As Francis X. Clooney, S.J., suggests in this reflection which appeared in National Jesuit News in December 2002, Xavier's example also challenges us to assess our way of proceeding as companions of Jesus in a world of pluralism: What do we need, and what do we need to let go of, in order to communicate effectively in the 21st century?

Some Bibliographical Resources for Jesuits in encounter with the world's religious traditions:
We list some basic bibliography comprised of "primary sources," Jesuit writings, premodern and contemporary, which exemplify the Jesuit encounter with other traditions. The list is not meant to be comprehensive, and we will list only a few secondary sources. We also welcome your suggestions for additions to the list.

Christianity in Japan. This site has a variety of articles, mostly by Jesuits, on the historical and theological interrelationship between Christianity and the people of Japan.

A Charism for Dialog: Advice from the Early Jesuit Missionaries in Our World of Religious Pluralism
Francis X Clooney, S.J.
For a generation Jesuits have recognized the importance of retrieving the original Ignatian and Jesuit charism in order to renew the ministry of the Spiritual Exercises, formation, governance in the Society. Now that the Society (at the 34th General Congregation) has identified interreligious dialogue as a key component in our mission today, it is time to look back to the theory and practice of the early Jesuit missionaries to detect their charism for interreligious encounter, to learn from them, and also to identify unique features of our current situation. While there are numerous scholarly studies of the Jesuit encounters with other cultures in different parts of the world, it is not easy for the non-specialist to grasp essential features of the early Jesuit contribution in brief form, and few studies attempt to survey the global scene. In this work (Studies in Jesuit Spirituality, March 2002) Francis X. Clooney, S.J., turns to primary sources in order to reflect on some key features of the early Jesuit encounters (in the first 200 years of the Society) with other religious traditions in the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

Goddess in the Classroom: Is the Promotion of Religious Diversity a Dangerous Idea?
Francis X Clooney, S.J.
This essay was written for an issue of Conversations in Jesuit Higher Education (Fall 1999) commemorating the deaths of the six Jesuits, their cook and her daughter in El Salvador in 1989; the issue had the general title, Do Ideas have Dangerous Consequences? In this essay Frank Clooney puts forward the thesis that we are better off if we attend positively and attentively to the religious diversity that flourishes on Jesuit campuses today.

Dominus Iesus and the New Millennium
Francis X Clooney, S.J.

Fahey, and Francis A Sullivan, and by Samuel Rayan from India and Aloysius Pieris from Sri Lanka.

The Bishop: Servant of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the Hope of the World
Rev. Fr. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, S.J.
Fr. Kolvenbach, Superior General of the Society of Jesus, spoke on October 5th, 2001, to the 10th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, on the relationship between interreligious dialogue and the ministry of local bishops in the Church. According to Fr. Kolvenbach, the bishop has the opportunity to be a leader in the field of dialogue, and to help those in his diocese to engage in dialogue in fruitful ways.

Interreligious Dialogue as Integral to the Jesuit Mission
James D. Redington, S.J.
Jim Redington, S.J., is Coordinator for Interreligious dialogue and senior fellow at the Woodstock Center in Washington, D.C. In this short essay Jim argues the case for the importance of dialogue as integral to the ministries of the Society of Jesus today.

A Conversation with Jim Redington, S.J.
James D. Redington, S.J.
The newest senior fellow at the Woodstock Theological Center, Father Redington arrived at Woodstock in August after having spent the past six years teaching young African Jesuits at Arrupe College in Harare, Zimbabwe. From 1978 to 1994, he was a professor in the Theology Department at Georgetown University. Jim entered the Jesuit seminary in 1962 and was ordained in the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus in June of 1978. In this interview, Father James L. Connor, S.J., director of the Woodstock Center, speaks with Father Redington about his latest book, his interest in Hinduism and interreligious dialogue, and his plans for his research and work at Woodstock.

Theology of the In-Between: The Value of Syncretic Process
Carl Starkloff, S.J.
Marquette University Press, 2002. Syncretism is a word with anh ambivalent, not to say bizarre history. It originated with the Greek historian Plutarch as a descriptive noun for advantageous political alliances among the Cretan tribes. It was later adopted by the REnaissance humanist Erasmus to propose to other humanists a way for them to unite against barbarism. But in the seventeenth century some Protestant theologians, followed later by some Catholics, used it to describe unprincipled compromise with conflicting teachings. Since then, among Christians the word has signified theological distortion, although anthropologists have employed it neutrally to describe the phenomena of religious mixtures resulting from intercultural contacts. The present work seeks to "retrieve" the ancient meaning of syncretism, since the book's thesis is that such mixing grows out of a human desire for unity and wholeness. More, among oppressed tribal peoples, it is an attempt to understand and rationalize their situtation. While acknowledging that not all syncretism is good and that some cases, like Nazism, have been demonic, this book argues that "syncretic process" is a historical movement by which Christianity can understand itself better as a faith to be shared by all cultures. Thus, once again, theology becomes "faith seeking understanding." Note this this book is not available on the net but can be obtained from a library or purchased from the Press or Amazon.com.

As Different as Night and Day: The Ignatian Praesuppositio and Intercultural Conversation
Carl Starkloff, S.J.
This essay treats the Praesupposition not simply as a facilitating process for retreat direction, but for intercultural conversaton as well. This concept also applies to interfaith dialogue, since this too demands respect for the ideas and experiences of another, as well as the capacity to challenge the other gracefully, and to receive challenges as well.

Pilgrimage Re-Envisioned: Mission and Culture in the Last Five General Congregations.
Carl Starkloff, S.J.
This essay deals with the growth of mission "conscientization" in the Society of Jesus, as represented by its supreme governing body, the General Congregation. In the five most recent general congregations, there is a focus on reflective mission theory, especially in relation to cultural awareness. More especially, General Congregations 32 and 34 have introduced and developed the theory and practice of "inculturation", which in turn relates to issues of and tensions with interfaith dialogue. To set the scene for these topics, the article has an introductory section discussing issues and crises in mission today.

Covenant, Culture and Communion:Church as Model of The Multicultural Common Good
Carl Starkloff, S.J.
American individualism is represented not only in a personal but in a collective manner, in the form of ethnocentrism and cultural exclusivism. The Catholic Church employes a theology that emphasizes not only multicultural inclusivity but also a sacramentality of the "common good". But if the Church is to serve as such a sacrament (and therefore also a model) of the multicultural common good, it too must broaden its theology. liturgy, pastoral praxis, and catechetics in order to make its inclusivity manifest. Interreligious dialogue, although not itself aimed at bringing people into the Church, broadens the inclusive character of the Church and of its theology.

In Search of Ultimate Meaning In Arapaho Tradition and Contemporary Experience
Carl Starkloff, S.J.
Although this article begins in a context of mission and "inculturation", its content focuses on the deeper theological meanings of Arapaho religion in itself, and how to study such a religion. The central question is the time-honored one of "primitive monotheism" within aboriginal beliefs. Although it is generally conceded today that such a belief is impossible to retrieve, it is still profitable to trace the concepts that do exist in this people's vocabulary. The present essay looks for its resources in both literary and oral tradition. Topics dealt with here are ideas of the Supreme Being and of the Creator, and whether these two are necessarily the same. Other topics include cosmological concepts, worship and symbolism, "sin" and evil, and life after death. The article concludes with some interpetive observations. Its value for interfaith dialogue, one may hope, lies in its method of investigating a religion in its own cultural and linguistic contexts.

The Impact of Dominus Iesus on Ecumenism
Francis A. Sullivan, S.J.
A key task of Jesuits involved in interreligious dialogue is to study, reflect on, and respond to documents which are issued by various offices of the Vatican. Here in repsonse to Dominus Iesus, a document of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, we collect several recent reflections by the American Jesuits Francis X. Clooney, Michael A. Fahey, and Francis A Sullivan, and by Samuel Rayan from India and Aloysius Pieris from Sri Lanka.
