Pope Francis calls for deeper faith and unity among Christians at global forum in Ghana

Pope Francis has urged Christians worldwide to deepen their faith and strive for unity during his address at the Fourth World Meeting of the Global Christian Forum in Accra, Ghana. 

The Pope’s message, delivered by Archbishop Flavio Pace, emphasized the importance of unity in enhancing the Christian mission globally, according to a Vatican News report. 

The gathering, from April 15 to 20, brings Christians from various backgrounds to engage in prayer, worship, and dialogue under the theme “That the World May Know.”

“We are called to embody the unity and love of the Triune God,” said Pope Francis, stressing unity as essential in a world marked by division. 

This year, the forum celebrates its 25th anniversary and continues to be a key platform for fostering dialogue and fraternity among different Christian traditions, with representatives from Orthodox, Catholic, Protestant, Evangelical, Pentecostal, and Independent churches, as well as various ecumenical organizations.

Archbishop Pace described the forum’s role as facilitating dialogue, sharing faith experiences, and strengthening community ties. 

“The power of Christian faith transcends human differences,” he said, praising the efforts to build a community unified by faith and respect.

The meeting also serves as a reflection on the Catholic Church’s synodal process, which encourages participation from various Christian traditions. 

This process aims to foster communion and mission, showing the church’s commitment to ecumenical dialogue and unity.

Participants are encouraged to explore new ways to collaborate and address the challenges facing the global Christian community.

Pope Francis concluded his message with a prayer for God’s blessings, expressing hope that the event will promote unity and advance the gospel among all Christians.
