Octave of Christian Unity Prayers

We are currently in the midst of the Octave of Christian Unity.  Even if you have not been praying for these intentions since the Octave started on January 18th, I encourage you to check out my post from the prior years on this important and special Octave by clicking here.

Daily Chair of Unity Octave Prayer:

Ant. 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 has sent me.

℣. I say to thee, that thou art Peter,
℟. And upon this rock I will build my Church.

Let us pray

Lord Jesus Christ, Who didst say to Thine Apostles: peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you, look not upon my sins, but upon the faith of Thy Church; and vouchsafe unto Her that peace and unity which is agreeable to Thy will: Who livest and reignest God forever and ever. Amen.

Daily Octave Intentions:
  • 18 January, The Feast of Saint Peter's Chair at Rome: The union of all Christians in the one true faith and in the Church
  • 19 January: The return of separated Eastern Christians to communion with the Holy See
  • 20 January: The reconciliation of Anglicans with the Holy See
  • 21 January: The reconciliation of European Protestants with the Holy See
  • 22 January: That American Christians become one in union with the Chair of Peter
  • 23 January: The restoration of lapsed Catholics to the sacramental life of the Church
  • 24 January: That the Jewish people come into their inheritance in Jesus Christ
  • 25 January, The Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul: The missionary extension of Christ's kingdom throughout the world
It is never too late to pray these prayers:
A plenary indulgence on the usual conditions at the end of the octave of prayers for the unity of the Church from the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter in Rome (Jan. 18) to the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul (Jan. 25). (Apostolic Brief, Feb. 25, 1916; S. P. Ap., Nov. 15, 1927 and Dec. 10, 1946).

Wow, a traditional prayer for the Jews! And they are even called perfidious! Don't you know that after Vatican II we do not convert Jews anymore and that now we are supposed to believe that they do not need baptism or the faith to be saved because the old law is still valid, despite what Saint Paul says. LOL.
