Father, make them one as You, Father, and I (Jesus) are one - that the world may know that You have sent the Son

From January 18th - January 25th, Christians throughout the world will be joining together to ask Our Lord to restore the full unity of the Christian community. The most notable rupture to Church unity occurred in 1054 when Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians lost their full bond of unity. Again, in 1517, unity in the Body of Christ was ruptured when ecclesiastical abuses led to fragmentation in the West. Thankfully, there is more hope and effort today to restore that full and visible unity to the Body of Christ than at any time in history.

Please join Christians throughout the world to pray for a movement of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of all Christians that we may fulfill Jesus Christ's prayer for unity on the night of the Last Supper. On the night before His death, Our Lord prayed. Father, make them one, as you Father and I are One. So that the world may know that You have sent the Son. And I pray not only for them, but also for those who will come to me through them.
