Claritas: Journal of Dialogue and Culture is honored to be chosen to publish the proceedings of the “Buddhist-Catholic Dialogue on Suffering, Liberation, and Fraternity.” This historic dialogue, the first Buddhist-Catholic dialogue to be held at this high level in Rome, was sponsored by the Bishops’ Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Dialogue (BCEIA) of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in collaboration with the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (PCID). The dialogue was convened from June 23 to 27, 2015 at the Focolare’s Mariapolis Center on the grounds of the pope’s summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, Italy
