The Word OREMUZ was Derived from the Latin word Oremus which means , "Let us pray", used by a person on a high religious Christian position, in delivering a mass.
"And thou shall Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these."
