As we confront the climate crisis, it is critical to explore what it means to be Catholic and Buddhist. What aspects of these traditions contribute to factors that imperil life on the planet? Just as important, how might these traditions enable us to realize our highest human potential, the deep expression of compassion and love for each other, especially the most vulnerable among us — human and non-human — who bear the brunt of the suffering?
This Catholic-Buddhist dialogue is sponsored by the Parliament of World Religions, Catholic Climate Covenant, Association of the Diocesan Ecumenical and Inter-religious Officers (CADEIO), Earth Day Network, and the Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies (SBCS).
