|Arms of Rome, Constantinople,|
and Canterbury. One Holy,
Catholic, and Apostolic Church.
Our job is to pray for these two men as they undertake their new responsibilities, to commend them when they do well, and to challenge them when they go astray. Anglicans should not only pray for Justin, but also for Francis, and Roman Catholics should do likewise. It is easy to forget that we are Christians first, and Anglicans or Roman Catholics second, and that we are called to pray for each other as sisters and brothers, whatever our ecclesiastical affiliation: Episcopalian, Roman Catholic, Orthodox, Lutheran, Pentecostal, Buddhist, or Muslim. But not only are we bidden to pray for them, we also are called to share their ministry.
