WHAT WE THINK

CHRISTIAN UNITY

WE should like to remind " our readers in good time that the annual Church Unity Octave begins on Saturday, January 18, the Feast of St. Peter's Chair.

Now that the war is safely out of the way, there are some of us who have lost practical interest in the cause of Christian unity, despite the recommendation of the Popes to observe this Octave, and the present Holy Father's constant reference to the goodwill of our separated brethren, so many of whom are growingly conscious of the need for unity.

For our part, we believe that the cause has increased in importance, not only because the peace is resolving itself into a struggle between those who at least are one in their belief in a freedom based on the Christian teaching about man and those whose rejection of all Christianity forces them into mechanising man as well as the world; but also because in peace-time there still exists for us a liberty to press this international cause in a way that is more difficult during the divisions of war.

Those who would like to read all about the Octave and have the prayers, can profitably read " Becoming One," a fourpenny booklet by Fr. Herbert Keldany (Paternoster Publications).
