Thursday, January 22, we had our usual Christian Unity Service. Drawing on our community effort for the Year of Consecrated Life, we invited religious to join us in prayer for unity. The theme of the day was “The Well is Deep.” All readings were focused on water. Our main celebrant was Archbishop Emeritus Harry Flynn, who was joined by Reverend Frank Fried and Pastor Walt Wietzke of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church. Joining us were Christian Brothers, Franciscan Brothers of Peace, Missionary Sisters of Charity, Association Jeanne Jugan, Staff and Residents; our chapel was full. The organist, Lawrence Lawyer and Jon Notermann the Cantor were from the Cathedral; the music was absolutely beautiful! Archbishop Flynn spoke eloquently on Charity and how we have to look at our neighbor and see in them that they were created in the image of God. We have to realize that the same God who created us also created them. We have to look on them with love—love in our minds and allow that love to filter into our hearts. We must love our neighbor as God has asked of us, and we must remember, it is not our love for God, but it is God’s love for us—He first loved us.
