n the first two films of this series (October and November 2009), Christian de Chergé, a priest in a Cistercian community in the Algerian Atlas mountains, who was assassinated with six of his brothers in 1996, and then Brother Andrew, a Dutch evangelical preacher, raised some crucial theological questions about the meeting of two faiths, a question which remains quite open, even today.
In this third film, to help us focus our thoughts, we meet Father Étienne Vetö, a member of the Chemin Neuf Community, a philosophy teacher and doctor of theology. He comments on some of the proposals put forward by the Second Vatican Council regarding the theological aspects of the meeting of different faiths.
Father Étienne Renaud, a White Father and former Superior General of the White Fathers, the Missionnaires d'Afrique, and a former Rector of PISAI (the Pontifical Institute of Arabic Studies) in Rome, shares with us his experience gained during 40 years living in Muslim countries. Etienne has spent his life trying to be a bridge between religions.

We suggest beginning your meeting by introducing the film and highlighting the main points made by Father Etienne Vetö, the Second Vatican Council's proposals which are mentioned in the film (see below). By all means make photocopies and hand them round!

Ce film est réalisé par la Communauté du Chemin Neuf via le réseau international de prière « Net for God ».
