Our Faith Can Transform the World

As children of God, and in order to become ever more truly so, we men and women of faith therefore wish to commit ourselves in favor of peace. And we wish to do this together. Yes, our differences are many and profound. Not infrequently in the past, those differences have also been the cause of grievous clashes. Now the Lord helps us to better understand that, beyond our differences and our truths, there is the man, the woman, the children of this world, to whom we would all like to give the best of what we have: our faith that can transform the world. A common faith in God has a fundamental value. By allowing us to recognize all people as creations of God, it helps us to discover universal brotherhood.
