This year’s Theme

We saw His Star in the East… (Mt. 2:2) The Magi travel from far-off countries, and represent diverse cultures, yet they are driven by the same hunger to see and know the new-born king. In this we can find a metaphor for Christian unity: that is, of different Christian peoples drawn together in their common search to recognise Christ, to know him and to worship him and witnessing to wider need for unity and to overcome injustice. A group of Christians in the Middle East prepared the theme for this year. Image: www.americamagazine.org
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.

DAY THEME RESOURCES
Raise us up and draw us to your perfect light.
Humble leadership breaks down walls
The presence of Christ turning the world upside down
Though small and suffering, we lack nothing
Guided by the one God
Gathered in worship around the One Lord
The search for unity
Beyond the familiar routs of separation
