Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity

18th - 25th January is always a big week at the Seminary. We spend the week praying for the Sanctification of all Christians and join with Our Lord to pray that we may all be one as He and the Father are one. This year we celebrate the centenary of the Octave. Pray with us over the next eight days that our separated brethren will soon come home.

Ut omnes unum sint, sicut tu Pater in me et ego in te; ut mundus credat quia tu me misisti.

V Tu es Petrus
R Et super hanc petram aedificabo ecclesiam meam

Domine Iesu Christe, qui dixisti Apostolis tuis: pacem relinquo vobis, pacem meam do vobis: ne respicias peccata nostra, sed fidem Ecclesiae tuae; eamque secundum voluntatem tuam pacificare et coadunare digneris. Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

God Bless

Yes, Orthfulls. I believe the final sentence in your first paragraph expresses my own feelings in a nutshell. Well done for saying it.

Excellent - Lets all pray for Catholic conversions!

Easter Dates said...

You can take a small step towards Christian Unity by signing the petition to unite the Dates of Easter at www.onedate.org that Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox would celebrate this Feast of Feasts all on One Date.

A young Australian Man (Sam Clear) is currently walking around the world asking all Christians to pray for Christian Unity. To have a look at his journey so far (from Brazil to Russia in 12 months), have a look at www.ymt.com.au/walk4one
