November 12 – Saint Josaphat Kuntsevych

Saint Josaphat

listenDear God, Saint Josaphat Kuntsevych (c.1580-1623) was a peacemaker motivated by the belief that we should focus on what unites us rather than what divides.  He worked hard to achieve unity between Churches.  Today, there are more denominations than in any other time of history.  I ask him to pray that humble leaders will be raised up who will bring healing where there are divisions, understanding of the truth where there are disagreements over beliefs, and reconciliation where there is unforgiveness.  Give unity to Christianity, O Lord, so that we can witness to the world that You are the One True God.  Saint Josaphat, pray for us.  Amen.
