Christian Unity


St. Paul:

For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body -- Jews or Greeks, slaves or free -- and all were made to drink of one Spirit. (1Cor 12:13)



Montfort Fathers:

The Marian Dimension of Ecumenism:

An analysis of Montfort's writings indicates that he stresses the need for a clarification of Mary's role in salvation history as an integral part of ecumenical dialogue. Far from being a stumbling block to union, Montfort sees in Mary a unifying element bringing together all the baptized, provided that she is presented in her true Christocentric context. Moreover, Mary, a daughter of the Jewish people and the woman so revered by Islam, becomes an important point of contact for the monotheistic religions of the world.
