That sentiment is echoed by Father Walter Kedjierski of St. Catherine of Sienna Church in Franklin Square, N.Y. "The first thing the Christian must do is recognize that Buddhism is Buddhism, not Christianity," said Father Kedjierski, a student of Asian religion and culture who has written on evangelizing Buddhists.

...
Added Father Kedjierski: "The goal for Buddhism is to escape the cycle of samsara, the constant reincarnations, and achieve the extinction of nirvana.
...
"Catholics believe in particular, unchangeable, ineffable truths - such as the idea that Christ is the one savior of humanity and God is a Trinity of persons," Father Kedjierski says. "Buddhists shy away from such ideas because Buddhists believe that all permanence is an illusion and that one should not become attached to truths as if they are permanent. When one is taught to free oneself of the notion that any truths are unchangeable or permanent, Christianity is clearly threatened."
No surprise, then, that "the idea of sin is really not a part of the Buddhist vocabulary," as Father Kedjierski also notes.
...
Anyway, said Father Kedjierski, "Most Buddhists certainly would not be comfortable attacking the contentions of other faith traditions in some sort of a debate.
...
Father Kedjierski, who in 2005 published an article called "Evangelizing Buddhists through the Cross" for Logos: A Journal of Catholic Thought and Culture, occasionally engages Buddhists in faith discussions at St. John's University in Queens, N.Y., where he is an adjunct instructor. He tries to present Buddhists with "an alternative view to the issue of suffering, using the cross of Christ as an example that Jesus took on suffering and showed us that there is a way to overcome it, not just escape from it."
