We humbly pray You, O God our Father,
to bless The Catholic Women’s League of Canada.
Bless our beloved country,
our homes and families.
Send Your Holy Spirit upon us
to give light to our minds
and strength to our wills
that we may know and fulfil
Your great law of charity.
Teach us to share with others
at home and abroad
the good things You have given us.
This we ask through our Lord Jesus Christ
and the intercession of our patroness,
Our Lady of Good Counsel.
Christian Unity Prayer
January 18 - 25, 2022
The daily themes, Scripture readings, reflections and prayers were prepared by the Middle East Council of Churches and the international WPCU Writing Team. The introduction and discussion questions were prepared by the Canadian WPCU Writing and Animation Team
How we read, hear, and interpret the Bible is affected by the context of our own lives and communities. The reflections below for each day’s Bible Study were prepared by the Middle East Council of Churches based in Beirut, Lebanon. The churches in the Middle East context are often in the minority and experience marginalization and oppression. The Gospel speaks directly to their experience, bringing light and hope while empowering them to bring this light and hope to their communities. We hear these themes in their reflections, which is an encouragement to us as we seek to live as Gospel people.
