In this week of prayer for Christian unity, we focus on the partnership between Fondacio and La Cause, a Protestant foundation in the organisation of couples sessions.
This partnership is a place to live ecumenism.
The partnership between Fondacio, a movement recognised by the Catholic Church, and the Protestant foundation La Cause has been in existence for almost twenty years and has been strengthened by years of dialogue, experience and good will on the part of successive leaders. This takes shape every year through the organisation of couples sessions, open to all those who wish to take care of their relationship in order to love each other and build over the long term.
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity from 18 to 25 January
It is an opportunity to highlight the benefits of this friendship between people and between churches that gives substance to ecumenism. Otherness and complementarity, which are the foundations of relations between spouses, are also the foundations of relations between confessions! Learning to discover and understand our specificities, being attentive to what can hurt or, on the contrary, bring joy to the other... as a couple as well as between churches, these attitudes allow us to live together. What's more, they enrich us and awaken us to the All Other, reminding us that no one has a monopoly on a word about God!
Couples sessions co-organised by Christians to shed light on conjugal life The proposals are based on the care taken in their preparation by the team in charge of the spiritual life, which works with authenticity and openness of heart. The joint presence of priest, pastor and lay people united in a deep communion of prayer makes it possible to offer open, joyful and meaningful celebrations, in the right tone, which welcome each person as they are. In the service rendered, together, the actors learn to tune their words, their attitudes, to choose decorations and songs of unity.
