Ut Unum Sint - That they may all be one.

"In essentials: unity, in non-essentials: liberty. in all things: Charity."

This is Christian Unity week. There are many events going on around the Diocese (and the world for that matter). I found two clips on YouTube for to mark the occasion. We should all pray for unity, as Christ prayed that "they may all be one, so that the world may know them."

In this clip is a "Church in Time" part done by Fr. Charles Connor, rector of St. Peter's Cathedral in Scranton, PA. He is a fantastic homilist, and sometimes I go to the Cathedral just to hear his lessons. You will not be asked for any money.

And below is a most worthy clip from EWTN on the Early Church Fathers. Specifically, Marcellino D'Ambrosio will talk about St. Hyppolytus and his perspective on Baptism, History, Liturgy, and his life lesson in Christian Unity.

You will not be asked for any money. :-)
