Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, strikes a courageous evangelical blow for whatever. The occasion is the Buddhist celebration of Vesakh. From the Vatican website:
On a practical level can we Christians and Buddhists not do more to collaborate in projects which confirm the responsibility that falls to each and everyone of us? Recycling, energy conservation, the prevention of indiscriminate destruction of plant and animal life, and the protection of waterways all speak of careful stewardship and indeed foster goodwill and promote cordial relations among peoples. In this way Christians and Buddhists together can be harbingers of hope for a clean, safe and harmonious world.
His Eminence's long-awaited Pastoral Instruction "On Not Over-Feeding Goldfish" is rumored to be released in July.
