A Kingdom divided against itself cannot stand.

"If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand."  (Mark 3: 24)

Today is Monday, 22nd January 2018, 3rd Week in Ordinary Time.  Today is the beginning of the Week of Prayer by all Churches for Christian Unity.  Today is also the Day of Prayer for the Protection of human life, especially Unborn Children.

Is there any connection between Christian Unity and Protection of human life? The key Scripture for today warns that "If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand." (Mark 3: 24).

The splinters of the Church in the 16th century brought about a worldview that gave birth to abortion and sexual license.  Families are divided against themselves, churches against churches, political parties against political parties.  If the Church is one as intended by her Founder Jesus Christ, don't you think that a unified strong voice proclaiming the Good News and shining the Light of Christ on the world will be more effective?

Pray for Christian Unity. Pray for protection of human life.

"Our Savior Jesus Christ has destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel."  (Cf 2 Timothy 1: 10).
