Week of Prayer for Christian Unity:

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be celebrated around the world from January 18th. to January 25th. 2020.  Theme “They Showed Us Universal Kindness” (cf. Acts 28:2)

The theme stresses the unusual kindness given to St. Paul, that must be seen in the quest for Christian unity.  Through unusual kindness towards one another, Christians are drawn closer together, heeding the prayer of Jesus, ‘that they all may be one’.  There must also be awareness of the need for hospitality to the many migrants and refugees who today embark on journeys as dangerous as that of St. Paul.
