Decalogue for Peace

By Remy Benoit

   There is much division in the world among people of many faiths.  Much of it comes from misunderstanding of what the true beliefs of the various faiths are, as well as from things done in the name of faith that are truly misrepresentational of what the faith really asks of its adherents.

   There is so very much power in words, and in joint prayer. In January of this year, leaders of many religious groups convened in Assisi, Italy in the largest gathering ever held to communally pray for peace. From this gathering, the Decalogue for Peace has been issued stating that truly terrorism and violence are not things of any religious spirit.  Joinly the attendees condemned the use of these devices.
