Week of Prayer for Christian Unity begins Wednesday

Catholic World News - January 17, 2012

The Vatican press office has issued an alert that the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will begin on Wednesday, January 18.

The annual observance traditionally spans from January 18 to 25. The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is an initiative of the World Council of Churches, to which the Vatican has given its strong support. This year's observance is organized around the theme: "We will all be changed by the victory of our Lord Jesus Christ."

At his midday audience on Sunday, January 15, Pope Benedict XVI called attention to the annual event, and urged Catholics, "as individuals and in communities, to participate spiritually, and where possible practically in the Week of Prayer, to ask God for the gift of full unity among the disciples of Christ."
