Day 2: Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2014

Sisters of the Holy Family

DAY 2 Together… we give thanks for God’s grace in one another

Deuteronomy 26:1-11 The Lord brought us out of Egypt
Psalm 100 Give thanks to God, bless God’s name
Philippians 1:3-11 I thank God every time I remember you
John 1:1-18 Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ

Three points for reflection

  • Gratitude, in Deuteronomy, is a way of living life with a deep awareness of God’s presence within us and around us. It is the ability to recognize God’s grace active and alive in one another and in all people everywhere and to give God thanks. The joy that flows from this grace is so gregratitudeat that it embraces even “the aliens who reside among you”.
  • Gratitude, in the ecumenical context, means being able to rejoice in the gifts of God’s grace present in other Christian communities, an attitude that opens the door to ecumenical sharing of gifts and to learning from one another.
