CWN Editor's Note: Joined by representatives of non-Catholic churches and ecclesial communities, Pope Francis celebrated Vespers at the Papal Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls on January 18 (video, booklet) to begin the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (background). The Pope typically celebrates Vespers at the basilica on January 25 as the week concludes; this year, however, he will be at World Youth Day in Panama on that day.
