Pray for Christian Unity


I'm late on this one this year. This is (almost "was") the Week of Christian Unity. Jesus' Holy Will is for Christians to be one body in Him.

May they all be one, just as, Father, you are in me and I am in you.

~John 17:21


Let us join Our Lord in prayer "that they all may be one."

Greetings

In this week of prayer for Christian unity I want to encourage people ecumenically to pray the Liturgy of the Hours. There may be divisions at the point of Eucharist – but we can unite around praying the Bible together – which is what the Liturgy of the Hours is. As we grow in union with God in prayer we grow in union with each other – and can celebrate diversity.

Blessings

Thanks so much, Bosco!

"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
