Rome, May 25, 1981
Every year the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is held in many parts of the world from 18th to 25th January. Elsewhere it is celebrated at Pentecost.
The theme for the Week of Prayer in 2013, based on Micah 6:6-8, is: ‘What does God ask of us?’
The Word of Life for this month explores and comments upon this idea.
Commentary of the Word of Life:
'Go and learn what this means, “I desire mercy, not sacrifice”' (Mt 9,13; cf. Hos 6:6).
