Local and international resources for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity are available online, placing a particular emphasis on hospitality as a much-needed virtue in our search for Christian unity and calling all to a greater generosity to those in need. The Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches jointly developed the international resource, using material provided by an ecumenical group in Malta representing a variety of Christian faith traditions. The material for Canada was adapted and produced by an ecumenical writing team coordinated by the Commission on Faith and Witness of the Canadian Council of Churches (CCC).  Local resources for Canada can be accessed on the website of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity: in English: https://www.weekofprayer.ca/2020-wpcu-resources or in French: https://www.weekofprayer.ca/fr/ressources-2020 and International resources produced by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and the Commission on Faith and Order of the World Council of Churches are accessible through the following links: in English: http://www.christianunity.va/content/unitacristiani/en/settimana-di-preghiera-per-l-unita/en.html or in French: http://www.christianunity.va/content/unitacristiani/fr/settimana-di-preghiera-per-l-unita/semaine-de-priere-pour-l-unite-des-chretiens-20200.html
