POPE SEEKS PRAYERS FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY

    VATICAN (CWNews.com) -- In his regular weekly public audience for Wednesday, January 19, Pope John Paul II spoke about the previous day's ecumenical celebration at the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls.

    The Holy Father told his audience in the Vatican's Paul VI auditorium that prayers for Christian unity would be particularly needed during this Jubilee year. (Yesterday marked the opening of the annual week of prayer for Christian unity.) The Pontiff asked all Christians-- but especially young people-- to be "apostles of dialogue, listening, and pardon." He asked those who suffer from illness or other pain to offer up their suffering for that intention. And he urged newly married couples to be "builders of communion within their own families," offering an example of unity to the world.

    Pope John Paul also announced that he would a new series of catechetical talks, on the subject of the Holy Trinity. He expects to develop that theme during his Wednesday audiences throughout the Holy Year.
