    Dialogue with Buddhists
    (17-Jul-2017)

    Thank you very much for your time and the wisdom you shared today. I have learned many things from you, and you have given me many things to think about and to pray about.
    It is deeply consoling to see how we are united in our desire to promote peace and reconciliation in our world. It is also consoling to see how we share a belief that the path to peace begins from within, from the deep transformation of the inner person, from growing in detachment and in loving kindness.
    I am grateful for what my brother Jesuits do to promote dialogue with Buddhism here in Cambodia, whether on the level of scholarly exchange, of prayer together, or on the level of shared life and common action serving the poor. Thank you for the meaningful and inspiring witness of how you live our Jesuit mission of reconciliation.
    Among the many things I have learned from Pope Francis, one is his insistence on the importance of creating a culture of encounter. He uses this phrase all the time. He believes that, in our divided world, where some want to build walls, what we need to do is to promote encounter, without fear and with respect, people meeting people, listening deeply and respectfully to one another, building relationships and friendships.
    Thank you for this event of encounter this afternoon, which has enriched me, and which I hope will bear fruit in service.
