On Saturday, January 25, 2020, Pope Francis will preside over the First Vespers of the feast of Saint Paul’s conversion, in the papal Basilica of Saint Paul Outside-the-Walls, which houses the Apostle’s tomb, for the 2020 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (January 18-25) whose theme is: “They Showed Us An Unusual Kindness” (Acts 28:2).

On January 18 of last year, the Pope celebrated Vespers in the same Basilica, at the opening of the 52nd Weeks of Prayer for Christian Unity. The Holy Father invited to acknowledge God’s gifts to other Christians and put on guard against the “grave sin of diminishing or mistrusting the gifts that the Lord has granted other brethren, believing in some way that they are somewhat less privileged of god.” “If we nourish similar thoughts, we enable the grace itself received to become a source of pride, injustice, and division,” he said.
