Wherever a Catholic might be, He is in communion with others, and that is fantastic. The Universal Church is an important model of a global institution, says the present peace envoy in the Middle East. Blair is sure that the Church has a central role in the changes in society, and that religion must has a place in the public debate.
Faith has to take the central stage, and Blair looks up on religions as important. But the past PM do not fell that confrontation will cease to exist. To the opposite, Blair feels that the Church and the politicians will end up on different side of the table. But Blair feels that this is besides the point. He wants faith to take its rightful place in public life, not to be silenced.
Blair also express his support for Pope Benedikt XVI´s teaching about «God`s central place in society, politics and economics». The Roman Catholic Church does promote a new economic World order, built on justice and fairness.
«We need to read this manifest of the Pope over, and over again, proclaims Blair».

«My journey of faith took 25 years. As time passed by, emotionally, intellectually and rationally, the Catholic home became natural for me. When i left the post as Prime Minister, I finally started to do something I had been longing for» explains Blair.
