“My Peace I give you” (John 14:23-31), Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, January 18 to 25, 2004

The theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity in 2004 has been chosen by Christians in Aleppo, Syria. In the Middle-East, as in many other places in the world, people hunger for peace. The biblical passage John 14:23-31 offers us a response to our common hunger. It shows how Christ’s reconciliation helps to draw us into closer communion with one another. Our path to peace leads us to reconciliation among the churches and on that ground we can also seek healthy relationships between all religious traditions.

Come let us join together, during this special week of Christian unity, to pray for the peace that God gives. Let us approach our Christian sisters and brothers in order to ask together for our hunger to be satisfied by our God.
