02/24/2004: "The Unity of Christianity"

Sunday was the Feast of The Chair of St. Peter. It didn't show up on the header of my blog (since I know you're all daily checking that my header is accurate smile ) because on Sunday's I force the day to show what the day will be as reflected in the readings at Mass (or at least that is the goal). In any case, the Pope gave a short speach on the importance of Christian Unity.

Today I think we should pray for that unity. I think we need to remember Christ's call of Peter to build His church. This isn't just about the Papacy (although it is inter-related), it's about One Universal Church. It's about Paul going to Peter to discuss circumcision even though he didn't really need to to be successful in spreading the Gospel. It's about all Christians acting as One Church. We need to pray for Christ's help in restoring that unity.

I had a thought the other day: The first millennium of The Church was about building Christendom. The second millennium of The Church was about dividing Christendom. Let's make the 3rd millennium the millennium of re-unification.
