Leaders of Christian communities throughout the world gather each year in the Vatican for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Pope Francis traditionally concludes the initiative presiding over Vespers at the Basilica of Saint Paul outside the Walls.
The theme for 2020, chosen and prepared by a group of representatives from the Christian Churches in Malta, is from the Acts of the Apostles: “They Showed Us Unusual Kindness”.
The working texts were finalized during a meeting of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, the International Committee of the Faith and the Order Commission of the World Council of Churches.
Archbishop Ian Ernest, director of the Anglican Center in Rome and personal representative of the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Holy See, spoke to Vatican Radio about the poignant relevance of the chosen theme.
