the object of the What i,r Octave t To pray that ail men may be made one in Christ and unite in the One Church under His Vicar the Pope.
What does one have to do during the Octave ?
Recite daily the prayers appointed by the Pope. And go to Confession and Holy Communion, if you want to gain a Plenary Indulgence.
Was not the Octave started by A nglicans ?
Yes, about forty years ago. But when some became Catholics a little dater, Pope Pius X authorised the prayers, and all recent Popes have kept the Octave and encouraged it.
Do not Anglicans and others still keep the Octave, and If so, what is the intention they Prag for ?
Non-Catholics keep the Octave with various intentions in mind, but all aim at more perfect unity in Christ and repeat the words He uttered during the agony in the garden: "That they all may be one."
What Ea the difference between their Idea of unity and the Catholic one T
We hold that our Lord gave unity to the One Church over which He established St. Peter and that this has never been lost. Non-Catholics pray for a -unity which they think of as still to be given us in the future. This would be more like a union or federation of Christians.
