Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity
Christians all believe in Jesus, don't they?
So they should be united, shouldn't they?
Are they? Errrr....... no!
Here's a short history of division among Christians! (3 mins 5 secs)
Here's what the Holy Father said about it in 2017: (1 min 26 secs) Just love his voice!
A reading for this week from the first Letter of Paul to the Thessalonians 5
But we appeal to you, brothers and sisters…
Be at peace among yourselves.
And we urge you, beloved to admonish the idlers,
encourage the faint-hearted,
help the weak,
be patient with all of them.
See that none of you repays evil for evil,
but always seek to do good to one another and to all.
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
What obstacles in ourselves hinder us from true community with others?
