It seems countries all over the world need the power of prayer right now – and that’s a good thing because today kicks off the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. 

The initiative was started by friars in Upstate New York, but now it’s celebrated by Christians in all corners of the globe. 

Joining Currents News to talk about how the Diocese of Brooklyn is taking part is Father Michael Lynch, Vicar for Ecumenical and Interreligious affairs. 

To take part in these prayers, just tune into net-tv and you will see them broadcasted throughout the day.  You can also head over to usccb.org for more information.
