The Olympic Games are the greatest sports event in the world.
In the spirit of the “Olympic truce” the international sporting event provides an opportunity to promote peace and reconciliation throughout the world. The Olympic truce tradition, originating in eighth-century B.C. Greece, asked that all wars and conflict be suspended before and during the games as a way make sure participants could travel to and from the venue safely. Let us pray that all nations will respect this truce and learn to live together in complete love and harmony.
