“Let’s tear down the walls of intolerance together”

The Vatican Insider reports that in the Vatican's annual message to the global Buddhist community, they address those who practice Buddhism:  By their genuineness, they encourage us to find an answer to the most fundamental questions about life and death, justice and peace, the meaning of suffering, and the reasons for hope. Thus they help us to progress in our pilgrimage towards Truth. By their dynamism, as builders of the future, they put pressure on us to destroy all the walls which unfortunately still separate us. By their questioning they nurture the dialogue between religions and cultures.

One of the Church's prayers on Good Friday is for all those who are people of good heart, but still do not believe in Christ.  A good way to engender that belief is just this type of dialogue.
