Today, January 25, is the last day of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. It began January 18 on the Feast of the Confession of St. Peter (see that post here) and continued for eight days to the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul (yes, it’s actually an “octave,” not a week).
Even if you haven’t been keeping up with this all a week, please take a moment today to pray for the unity of believers.
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to one hope when you were called— one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
- Paul Before Agrippa
January 25 is Opposite Day! Oh no, wait… I meant it’s NOT Opposite Day … it is … oh well, it’s Opposite Day everyone. You now have official permission to act like a six year old, telling everyone the opposite of what you mean and laughing hysterically when they get confused.
“Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work—this is a gift of God.”
But all I said was “You are the ugliest woman I ever saw and I don’t want to go out with you.” Doesn’t she know it’s opposite day?
*update: I originally posted this as a January 24th holiday, but most people celebrate Opposite Day on January 25. Although a few celebrate on the 24th, I’ve updated the post to reflect the more popular date.. I didn’t realize a holiday this confusing could get even more confusing!
