“I urge you, brothers and sisters, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that all of you agree in what you say,
and that there be no divisions among you,
but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose.” (1 Cor 1:10)
Every Catholic who faithfully attended Mass this these words from St Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians were part of last Sunday’s readings in Mass. What is it asking us? That we may be one. I think that is the question all non-Catholic Christians have to ask themselves. Why am I not following Christ’s directive? And there should be no doubt that these words are Christ’s because, while they may have been written by St. Paul, he is only echoing what Christ had already prayed for; that we be as one . How can any Christian disobey this and still call themselves truly a follower of Christ?
Below is a audio presentation by Father Gray Bean, a former Baptist, who, unlike many of us, could not deny to his heart what his mind was telling him….that the Catholic Church is the Church founded by Christ and the Church and the only place where all Christians will find unity. I think it is quite compelling and worth a listen.
