“Many Christians from all Communities … are jointly involved in bold projects aimed at changing the world by inculcating respect for the rights and needs of everyone, especially … the defenseless ” (John Paul II, “Ut Unum Sint).
Reflection: From January 18 to the 25th, the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is observed by many denominations. All Christians, by definition, acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Savior of the world. That affirmation of Christ requires that we work to fight injustice. The pro-life movement continues to be the arena where these efforts are most visible and valuable.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, may we be one, as you and your Father are one. Amen.
