Editor Jerzy Turowicz and Priest Karol Card. Wojtyła

Priest Karol Card. Wojtyła - fragments of correspondence with the editor Jerzy Turowicz

'Faith as well as the whole religious attitude of man has its own particular specifics that cannot be easily reduced to such means of expression that in relation to it is not homogeneous. If the concern to raise a religious attitude makes us search for contemporary means of expression and present it in a way that is accessible to people today, then nonetheless these have to be the right and authentic means - even when it comes to information on religious matters'.

'One must add that any dialogue 'outside', a dialogue with people of different beliefs that the Church so commonly takes up, needs to assume an extremely thorough sense of faith, sensus catholicus needs to be even more mature here than in the case of not taking up dialogue'.
