Day 5: Prayer for Christian UnityJan 22nd, 2012 | By Guest Author | Category: Blog Posts
Jesus Christ, true God and true man, we know You most fully in your Blessed Sacrament, offered to us as You offered Yourself to the world in the Bethlehem manger. We know that you desire the unity of Your Body. We know that you are grieved when a foot is cut off or a limb is mangled. Your Church bleeds from many wounds, and You invite us to participate with your Holy Spirit in healing that which is broken. Please, we ask you, give us the grace to foster unity within the Body of Christ, most especially the grace of evangelizing with courteous charity and prudent zeal, so that every soul might have the opportunity to receive Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion and receive the fullness of joy that you desire to give us. We ask through the prayers of Your Mother. Amen.
Our thanks to Catherine Rose, author, revert, brave mother and devoted daughter of Christ, for accepting our request to write a prayer for this occasion.
