Benedict XVI stressed his desire for interfaith dialogue at his first mass since being elected pope. “I address everybody, even those who follow other religions or who simply look for an answer to life’s fundamental questions and still haven’t found it,” he said Wednesday, the Associated Press reported. “To all, I turn with simplicity and affection to ensure that the church wants to continue weaving an open and sincere dialogue with them, in the quest for the real good for man and society.”
