Giant Size Team-Up!

Costumes. Fighting against Evil. Supernatural powers. It's like the AVENGERS!
So, the Pope, a Buddhist monk and a rabbi go to Assisi. Stop me if you heard this before.

No, really, the Pope, Buddhist monks, rabbis and others went to Assisi and discussed the role of religion in the world. It's the third such meeting of world religions at the behest of the Vatican and has been met with acceptance and confusion.

But it happened.

The pope spoke of a united effort among all religions to work for peace: "[I]t is a case of being together on a journey towards truth, a case of taking a decisive stand for human dignity and a case of common engagement for peace against every form of destructive force."
