Thursday, 17 January 2013

Vatican City (Agenzia Fides) - At the end of the general audience on Wednesday, January 16, the Holy Father Benedict XVI recalled the upcoming celebration of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, with these words: "On Friday, January 18, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity begins, the theme of this year’s unity week is: "What does God require of us," from the book of the prophet Micah (cf. Mi 6, 6-8). I invite all to pray, to unceasingly ask God for the great gift of unity among all the disciples of the Lord. May the inexhaustible power of the Holy Spirit encourage us to a sincere commitment in the search for unity, so that we can all together profess that Jesus is the Saviour of the world."
