On January 28, 2012, Christians are invited to join again in a great intercessory prayer for our Time, to be held at the Coptic Orthodox Church of St. Anthony, close to the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem
With Our Lord’s help, on January 28, 2012, at 5 pm Holy Land time, Christians will join again via a four continent live broadcast by Christian channels in a great intercessory prayer for Reconciliation, Unity and Peace for our time, beginning from Jerusalem. The seventh Extraordinary Prayer of all Churches for Reconciliation, Unity and Peace coincides, as in January 2011, with the Jerusalem Week of Prayer for Unity.
In these times of change, more than ever, it is urgent and necessary to ask for Our Lord’s Mercy. May He, insistently requested to do so, touch the hearts and inspire in them the irresistible desire to convert and to renew our faith, to reconciliate, to unite and to Live in the interior Peace of Christ, both as single Christians and as Christian Churches. Blessed are the artisans of His Peace!
The Coptic Orthodox Church, who has often and also recently given the testimony of her profound faith in Jesus Christ, up to martyrdom, will propose a simple and very intense celebration.
May the call of the Church to Our Lord and Father be heard! May He bless His sons and daughters, those who hear the Word, who listen to the Spirit of Life.
