Prayers fo the Church Unity Octave

Prayers for the Church Unity Octave: (to be prayed between January 18-25 once a day)

Antiphon:

That they all may be one, as Thou, Father, in Me and I in Thee; that they also may be one in Us; that the world may believe that Thou has sent Me.”

V. I say unto thee that thou art Peter
R. And upon this Rock I will build my Church

Let us pray:
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who didst say to Thine Apostles: peace I leave with you. My peace I give unto you; look not upon my sins, but upon the faith of Thy Church and vouchsafe unto her that peace and unity, which are agreeable to Thy Will. Who livest and reignest God forever and ever. Amen

Almighty and everlasting God, whose will it is that all men should be saved and that none should perish, look upon the souls that are deceived by the guile of Satan, in order that the hearts of them that have gone astray may put aside all the perverseness of heresy, and, being truly repentant, may return to the unity of Thy truth. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Lord Jesus, merciful Saviour of the world, we humbly beseech Thee by Thy Most Sacred Heart, that all the straying sheep may turn unto Thee, the Shepherd and bishop of their souls: Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.

The CMRI clergy would do well to become familiar with the canons governing sermon preaching.

Greetings, Langdon alger.

Where may I find these canons governing sermon preaching? I'm interested to know what it is you speak of.
