report by Vito Palladino
On the evening of May 17, I hosted a third SOPP ceremony in Italy. About a dozen people took part, including a representative from UNICEF and artists working in various spiritual traditions. The ceremony included songs and prayers from different cultures and religions, a prayer of Gratitude to Nature, and prayers for peace in each country and region of the world. Video from the Fuji Sanctuary broadcast was used during these prayers, although participants prayed in Italian.
These prayers were followed by expressions of light-filled words, such as Infinite forgiveness, Infinite dignity, and Infinite brightness, and words of thanks from the participants. The ceremony was also streamed live on YouTube, and the recording can be viewed at youtu.be/C2lxQIWzByg.
