New York, May. 30, 2008 ( - Former British prime minister Tony Blair has told Time magazine that he plans to devote the rest of his life to an effort to promote religious faith as a means of addressing world problems.

Religion should be a "civilizing force in globalization," Blair told Time. The power of faith, he said, would provide "an essential part of making globalization work."

Blair, who converted to Catholicism shortly after stepping down from his leadership role in the British government, is launching a new foundation dedicated to bringing together different religious groups to serve social needs.
