From 18 to 25 January the “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity”

The Basilica of Saint Anthony in Padua and the great Family of St. Anthony are united in prayer

The "Week of Prayer for Christian Unity" takes place from 18 to 25 January. This year’s theme is based on Luke’s Gospel, “You shall love the Lord your God... and your neighbor as yourself" (Luke 10:27).

The preparation of the 2024 materials was entrusted to an ecumenical group from Burkina Faso. As is well known, the political and social situation in that country is unstable, with many threats to peace and social cohesion. This initiative bears concrete witness to the desire to walk, pray and work together, reflecting on the love of Christ that unites all Christians, and is stronger than any division.
