Strictly speaking this is NOT from the Pope. It is from the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue. The word ‘dicastery‘ mentioned in the text refers to this, i.e., a curial department. But to be fair the pope is aware of it even though he might not have looked through it word for word.

The Vatican does put out a Vesak greeting every year. So this is not new. Here is a link to last year’s message.
