Interreligious dialogue and the gift of the Spirit

In several of the BTh defences, there was mention of seeds of the word (logos spermatikoi), from Justin Martyr, in the context of inter-religious dialogue and theology of religions. No one seemed to have mentioned Lonergan's suggestion that it is the gift of the Spirit that is the common basis for ecumenical dialogue, and perhaps also, if the gift of God's love is offered to all, for interreligious dialogue.

Of course, the other interesting question - asked by Gianni Caputa - was: where do you find the seeds of the word?
