Prayer for Church Unity
To Be said during the Chair of Unity Octave, January 18 to 25
v. That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in Me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.
v. I say unto thee, that thou art Peter;
r. And upon this Rock I will build My Church.
v. O Lord Jesus Christ, Who said unto Thine apostles; «Peace I leave you, My peace I give you »; regard not our sins, but, rather, the faith of Thy Church; and grant unto her that peace and unity which are agreeable to Thy will. Who livest and reignest God forever and ever.
