During Angelus, Pope Urges Renewed Prayers for Christian Unity

Pontiff Calls for Prayers So We Could ‘All Be One’

“I invite you to persevere in prayer, so that the desire of Christ, ‘That they all [Christians] might be one,’ may be accomplished.”

Concluding his Angelus address on Sunday, Pope Francis gave this invitation, as he reminded the faithful in St. Peter’s Square that we are currently in the midst of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.

This year, the week has as its theme “Reconciliation – The Love of Christ Compels Us.” It will conclude in Rome on Wednesday with an ecumenical celebration of Vespers at the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls.
