Dear Your Holiness--
You have been an inspiration to me for many, many years. I just read The Book of Joy and watched the film Mission Joy, and have been so moved by your kind, loving, joyous friendship with the Archbishop Desmond Tutu. I hope I can bring similar kindness and joy--and yes--mischievousness!--into my own friendships. I am grateful for your willingness to work for the good in the world without being morose, your steadfast refusal to give up and fall into the doldrums. I'm also grateful for the many hours of meditation you spend every morning--it helps me in pursuing my own meditations…
In short, I am deeply grateful for the example you have given us all.
Yours most sincerely and gratefully
