On Donkey Drivers, Interreligious Dialogue, and Shared Tasks: A Jewish Response to Pope Francis on Interreligious Relations and Collaboration

  • Debbie Young-Somers
Part of the Pathways for Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue book series (PEID)


This is a pope I want to agree with. He behaves and writes empathetically and behaves with what seems like huge care and humility, which goes a long way. Within the confines of Catholic theology, he comes across as a reformer, perhaps even a radical, disavowing the pomp of the Vatican and, from the outside at least, trying to build bridges with those who may have felt alienated from the church in preceding years.
