"Veritatem Facere In Caritate"

Eph. 4:15 "Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly].
Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the head [even]
Christ (the Messiah, the anointed one)."

THE GREAT PRAYER FOR UNITY WITHIN THE HOLY EUCHARIST

 "UNITE US ALL"
 

Unite us all, who partake of the Holy Gifts:
Unite us all, who partake together from the ONE LOAF and CUP, one with another in the
Communion of the one Holy Spirit; and let no one among us receive the Body and Blood of
Thy Christ for judgment or condemnation, but may we find mercy and grace with all Thy Saints
since the beginning of time.

AMEN.
