A Prayer for Reconciliation

We thank you, Christ Jesus, because the Catholic Church is the Church of the Eucharist, rooted in your words, "This is my body, this is my blood", and so giving life by your adorable presence.

We thank you, because the Protestant Churches are the Churches of the Word, and constantly recall the power of your Gospel.

We thank you, because the Orthodox Churches, so often in their history, are brought by faithfulness to go to the very extreme of loving.

So Christ, give us all openness to ways leading beyond our own selves: may we no longer delay reconciliation in that unique communion called the Church, irreplaceable leaven set in the midst of humanity.
