Ecclesiam Suam - Archbishop Kevin McDonald's Speech

Dear All

Well its been a busy last two weeks but the great summer school here in Texas is now coming to an end - the last talk is tonight. I will put up a separate post about that shortly. However I wanted to put here a link to Archbishop Kevin McDonald's speech /booklaunch at our 'Ecclesiam Suam' conference two weeks ago. I hope you enjoy it.

What has emerged since the conference has been the wonderful interest in continuing the dialogue and pursuing it in new ventures. Prof Sara Sviri, Dr Jonathan Gorsky, Dr Mustafa Baig, Dr Michael Kirwan, Dr Lynne Scholefield, myself and many other colleagues and associates are very keen for us to take the Toledan/Convivencia framework forward with some new events in the coming months. So watch this space! Equally some new ventures around the area of Jewish-Christian dialogue are being mooted. Prof Jose Nandhikkara is now organising a dialogue conference in Bangalore for January next year with ourselves and Liverpool Hope University as dialogue partners. So all in all the work of the conference, including the conference publication, looks set to continue for many months and years to come. A fitting tribute to Pope Paul VI and the extraordinary work he accomplished 50 years ago.

Best wishes
