Pope Francis is the first Pope using video for his monthly prayer intentions. The prayer initiative, that started earlier this week, comes from the Jesuit-run global prayer network Apostleship of Prayer. [1]

In the video you see a Buddhist, Catholic, Jew and Muslim, as Pope Francis is encouraging inter religious dialogue and Christian unity. The point is obviously to focus on what we have in common:
Love, and perhaps God.

The video starts by pointing out that most people on this planet believe in something:
“Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways. In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty that we have for all: we are all children of God”

What are we to make of this?
“We should not stop praying for it and collaborating with those who think differently.”, Pope Francis continued.

John 1:12 says: “But as many as received him [Jesus], to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.”

When Jesus prayed for unity, it was not to be in spite of Him and His Word. He said:
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” (John 17:17)

However well meaning Catholics may be, the Church teaches that the Pope and the priests in many ways are to take the place of Christ, casting down the truth.

While the false unity prophesied in Revelation 13 is developing in front of our eyes, let us come together in true unity with Jesus and His Word as foundation, keeping the commandments of God (Rev 14:12), following “the Lamb wherever He goes” (Rev 14:4)
