Truth and Unity

The Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity begins on January 18th. Here is an important thought as we prepare to begin this period of prayer:
"...there is no unity without truth. Truth first, unity afterwards, truth the cause, unity the effect. To invert this order is to overthrow the Divine procedure. The unity of Babel ended in confusion; the union of Pentecost fused all nations into one Body and one dogma of the Faith….Truth alone generates unity.”
- Henry Edward Cardinal Manning
