Pope Francis said, Divisions among Christians are contrary to the will of the Lord, in his October 8 general audience.
“Are we resigned or even indifferent to this division?” he asked the crowds gathered in St. Peter’s Square. “Or do we firmly believe that we can and we must walk together towards reconciliation and full communion?”
Pope Francis said that “by dwelling in the truth, and practicing forgiveness and charity, we will be ever more conformed to Christ’s will, reconciled with one another, and led closer to the goal of full unity which he wills for all his disciples.
“Like that we will achieve communion along the way,” he added. “It is called spiritual ecumenism: walking along the paths of life all together in our faith in Jesus Christ the Lord.”
