His Beatitude Emeritus
Patriarch Michael Sabbah

I see in this group of Muslim and Christian believers, who opted for the path of dialogue, an example to emulate and a religious necessity by which each believer strengthens his faith.

For each believer becomes more faithful to God when he believes in his fellow man. According to St. John’s First letter (4:20):

If anyone says, “I love God”, and hates his brother, he is a liar for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.

Each believer is in need of Al-Liqa’ Center’s programs, in order to adjust his path to God in light of the reality in which his fellow man lives, so as to know him and to serve him better.

By listening to others we pay tribute to God and by abasing others we depart from God’s commandment. On the other hand, ignorance of others is a diminution of God’s right and man’s right.

Dialog is one of the characteristics of the local church and of this country, given the great variety of its religious and cultural communities.
