Today’s topics: Ecumenical Prayer Service for all Christian Martyrs

Summary of today’s show: When a photo of Cardinal Seán being assisted in remembering his baptism by a female Methodist minister took the Internet by storm, it brought to the forefront that we are in the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, which began with that 50-year commemorative event in Sudbury and will end with an Ecumenical Prayer Service for all Christian Martyrs. Vito Nicastro of the office of ecumenical and interreligious affairs and Tibrine da Fonseca of the Sant’egidio Community join Scot Landry and Fr. Chip Hines to discuss the Sudbury event and the upcoming event at Mission Church, which will recall Christian martyrs of all Christian churches and ecclesial communities. The prayer, which was initiated by Pope John Paul II in Rome during the 90s, is meant to pray for peace in the world to end the persecutions of Christians that occur in great numbers today.
