 Moving toward Mutuality:
Five Plus Decades on the Catholic - Jewish 

"Journey of Friendship"
with Philip A. Cunningham, Ph.D.


Since the Second Vatican Council in 1965, interactions between Jews and Catholics have become more frequent and positive than ever before in history. Official and informal dialogues have multiplied, and religious leaders in both communities have reconsidered and reformed long-held ideas about each other in a process that still continues. This "journey of friendship," as Pope Francis has called it, has led to a new interreligious relationship that is exemplified by his own long friendship and dialogues with Rabbi Abraham Skorka of Buenos Aires. It is also depicted in an original sculpture, "Synagoga and Ecclesia in Our Time," at Saint Joseph's University in Philadelphia, blessed by Pope Francis in 2015. The artwork shows the Synagogue and the Church learning from each other's experiences of God in a relationship of mutuality. Join us for this story of a new beginning that gives great hope for the future.

 

Philip A. Cunningham, Ph.D., is Professor of Theology and Director of the Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations of Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia. Interested in biblical studies, religious education, and theologies of Christian-Jewish relations, he is the author of numerous books and articles on these subjects, most recently, Seeking Shalom: The Journey to Right Relationship Between Catholics and Jews. He has served as President of the International Council of Christians and Jews, as a member of the advisory committee on Catholic-Jewish relations for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and is the webmaster for the Council of Centers on Jewish-Christian Relations and its online resource supersite called Dialogika
