CWN Editor's Note: In an annual message of greeting to the world’s Buddhists, the Pontifical Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue said that the Buddhist tradition offers “a timeless message of solidarity and active care.” The Vatican greeting suggested that the experience of the Covid pandemic should “strengthen our bonds of friendship and unite us in service to the human family.” The message was issued for the Buddhist feast of Versakh, which commemorates the life of the Buddha; the feast is usually celebrated on May 26.
