Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Thanks to A Catholic Life Blog for pointing out that today begins a Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The BBC tells us that this traditionally lasts from the feast of St. Peter to the feast of St. Paul (January 18-January 25).

The week was started by an Episcopalian clergyman Paul Wattson who later became a Catholic. It has been a joint project between Roman Catholic church and the World Council of Churches since 1966.

Before he died, Christ prayed, "That they all may be one." Lets join Him in that prayer. I would like, especially, to pray for the Orthodox and Anglican churches and their members, who have so much to teach and remind us about beauty in our worship.

Thank you for joining me in prayer for Christian Unity.

May we all be one in Christ!

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
