A Prayer for Orthodox-Roman Catholic Unity

AS THE POPE Prepares to travel to Turkey to visit with the Greek Orthodox Patriarch, Metropolitan Nicholas of the Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Diocese of the USA has published the following prayer for unity in the Body of Christ and for protection for "these Shepherds of the Great and Holy Pasture of Christ."

O Holy Father from Whom all blessings flow, we come before You in meekness and bow down: humbly we beseech You to look kindly upon the meeting of Patriarch Bartholomew, Archbishop of Constantinople, and Pope Benedict, Pontiff of Rome. For too long, there has been division and alienation in the Church, when there should have been the unity of the Body of Christ. We beg Your mercy and wisdom, O Lord, to provide for the welfare of the holy churches of God and for their union. Let this occasion of fellowship be for the healing of old disputes. In Your infinite power, protect these Shepherds of the Great and Holy Pasture of Christ. Shield them, and all who attend, from the peril of harm. And in Your matchless grace, establish a bright new work in these latter days, so that the world might see the Face of Christ; so that men and women might repent, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and be saved in the Apostolic Church of God. For these supplications, we humbly beseech You, Holy Father, hear us and have mercy...
He has requested this prayer to be added to all Divine Liturgies on the Sundays of November 19 and November 26 (in preparation for the journey). It may also be added to the liturgies during the weeks as needed. I would think such a prayer would be good not only during the days of the Pope's visit but until that unity is achieved.

Props to Ben
