Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
"The theme of this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity - 'He even makes the deaf to hear and the dumb to speak' - is inspired by Saint Mark's account of Jesus' healing a man who was deaf and mute (cf. Mk 7:37). Through Baptism, all Christians have been freed from spiritual deafness, enabled to hear God's word and charged to bear witness to it in word and deed, by the exercise of Christian charity. May our common prayers and our efforts to live fully the grace of our Baptism hasten the day when all Christ’s followers will live in perfect communion."
Pope Benedict XVI
