Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill:
"interreligious dialogue can effectively solve acute modern-day problems"
Baku, April 26, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia
believes in effectiveness of dialogue between believers of different
religions in solving actual problems of the modern-day world.
"God grants so that believers have a possibility jointly, in fraternal
spirit, basing on their religious convictions solve problems and tasks all
of us are facing," Patriarch Kirill said on Sunday preaching after the
Divine service in the Russian cathedral in
Baku, where he came to participate in the World Interreligious Summit.
According to him, in the epoch of globalization, when "many distant
conflicts have become our conflicts," believers should be convinced that
"it's impossible to solve all modern-day problems with human reason only."
"We should rely on the divine wisdom, contemplate all problems through our
faith and convictions," the Russian Church Primate believes.
