A sign of hope for Christian unity

I remember reading from someplace that Catholics and Evangelicals may be finding the right venue for dialogue: at the trenches, where they face tremendous challenges in defending the unborn, feeding the hungry, and other works of love. Last Sunday, at the family Mass where we celebrate Ascension Sunday, we had a few visitors from the nearby Uniting and Anglican churches. The parish priest helped them light a candle, they expressed the prayerful hope from their congregations, for the longed for Christian unity. I must confess feeling giddy when they spoke their prayers and parishioners (another jam-packed Sunday Mass) replied affirmatively: "Amen" for each of their prayers. Half a millenium of division.. but nothing is impossible with God. And so we continue to hope. And pray.
