WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY
The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is celebrated around the world on January 18-25. This year's theme is: "We saw the star in the East, and we came to worship Him." (Mt 2:2)


As a way of our participation, you may recite the prayer below: 
 
Eternal Father,
we praise you for sending your Son
to be one of us and to save us.
Look upon your people with mercy,
for we are divided in so many ways,
and give us the Spirit of Jesus
to make us one in love.

We ask this gift, loving Father,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
