Octave of Church Unity (Jan. 18-25)

The eight days from January 18, the feast of the Chair of St. Peter in Rome, to January 25, the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, are kept as the devotional Octave of Church Unity,

ANT. That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou hast sent Me.
V. I say unto thee, thou art Peter.
R. And upon this rock I will build my Church.
Let us pray. Lord Jesus Christ, who didst say to Thine Apostles: Peace I leave you, My peace I give you; consider not my sins, but the faith of Thy Church, and deign to keep it in peace and unity according to Thy will; Who livest and reignest, God, through all eternity. Amen.
