This year’s Theme

“You shall love the Lord your God ... and your neighbour as yourself” (Luke 10:27) Learning to do right requires the decision to engage in self-reflection. The Week of Prayer is the perfect time for Christians to recognize that the divisions between our churches cannot be separated from the divisions within the wider human family. Praying together allows us to reflect on what unites us and to commit ourselves to confront oppression and division. A group of Christians in Burkina Faso prepared the theme for this year.
Christian Unity Week The night before his Passion and Death, Jesus said: “May they all be one, just as, Father, you are in me and I am in you” Jn 17:21 Each year from 18-25th January, Christians unite around the world to pray for this great desire of the heart of Jesus—that we may all be one. Here at Kilmacud Carmelite Monastery we dedicate our Evening Prayer at 4.30pm for this intention each day during the Week of Prayer.
