Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, January 18 - 25, 2012

The theme for the annual celebration of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2012 has been announced by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches.

The theme for the 2012 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is:
We Will All Be Changed by the Victory of Our Lord Jesus Christ
(cf. I Corinthians 15:51–58)

Following extensive discussion, representatives of the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and Old Catholic and Protestant Churches in Poland. decided to focus on a theme that is concerned with the transformative power of faith in Christ, particularly in relation to our praying for the visible unity of the Church, the Body of Christ. It is based on St Paul's words to the Corinthian Church which speak of the temporary nature of our present lives in comparison to what we receive through the victory of Christ through the Paschal mystery. This "victory" is only possible through spiritual transformation, conversion. As we pray for and strive towards the full visible unity of the church we, and the traditions to which we belong, will be changed, transformed and conformed to the likeness of Christ.
