I've sat together with a steadfast Catholic and found the experience both rewarding and vivifying. We all share the same emptiness, the same light. My concern with those who approach this question from a Christian viewpoint is one of externalism. Traditional Christian theology extols the yielding to an external higher power whereas Buddhism teaches this power is found within. It would indeed be a blessing to hand over our salvation to God, but I maintain if salvation is to be obtained, it must come from within.
