Francis Equates "Buddha And Jesus," Invokes Blessing “From On High”
He praised inter-religious friendship while sentimentally invoking "the cry of a wounded humanity and a broken earth.”
According to Francis, “Buddha and Jesus understood the need to overcome the egoism that gives rise to conflict and violence.”
At the end, trying to ingratiate himself with his guests, Francis avoided any allusion to Christianity by saying that “upon you and upon all in your noble country I invoke an abundance of blessings from on high.” However, there is no "on high" concept in Buddhism.
