Bref historique des Journées Romaines Dominicaines

Les "Journées Romaines" ont commencé en 1956, peu de temps avant Vatican II, à l'initiative du fr. Georges Anawati, OP, et de quelques Pères Blancs, soucieux de promouvoir au sein de l'Eglise catholique une meilleure connaissance de l'Islam et de l'importance du dialogue inter-religieux. Ces rencontres ont eu lieu tous les deux à Rome jusqu'à au milieu des années 1990.

Summary of Friday's experiences

Jean Jacques Pérennès preached at morning mass and spoke of three qualities of St. Augustine that are important for us as preachers as well.  Chrys McVey, of happy memory, also embodied these qualities.
