Pope’s quotes: Visible unity

A quote from Pope Francis:

“Although the common goal of full and visible unity of Christians sometimes seems to become more difficult to achieve because of different interpretations regarding the church and its unity, we must not give in to resignation but concentrate on the next possible step. Do not forget that we are walking together the path of friendship, mutual respect, and theological research. It is a path that makes us look with hope to the future.”

— Audience with delegation from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Germany, Dec. 18, 2014
