The video below was produced by www.calledtocommunion.com and presents some thoughtful questions to ponder. Questions such as, Did Jesus intend all this disunity among Christians? Do we tend to “paper-over” our disunity and minimize its seriousness?. If Christ intended only one Church then how can we determine the one True Church? At points the video is a bit hard to hear but it surely gives a lot to think about. The truth be told, the disunity among Christians is a grave and serious scandal. It is certainly opposed to the will of Jesus who said: I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. (John 17:21-22) The website mentioned above is thoughtful and scholarly and I recommend it to your attention.

I agree, but how do you evangelize these other branches. In addition, imagery is important to all human beings. It’s how we see ourselves, additionally, understanding cultural expresssion. Also, being welcomed and accepted for our wonderful differences.
All of these things and much more play a part in bringing people together. Not to mention, dialogue and more dialogue. Well you may say the Catholic Church has done all these things. Well? Not so fast. Maybe yes and maybe no.
We must ask God for the grace to surrender, to say ‘yes’. To submit to His divine plan. “FIAT”
