Division


O Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, thou didst promise to abide with us always. Thou dost call all Christians to draw near and partake of thy Body and Blood. But our sin has divided us and we have no power to partake of thy holy eucharist together. We confess this our sin and we pray thee, forgive us and help us to serve the ways of reconciliation according to thy will. 

Sergei Bulgakov, cited by Militza Zernov in "Unity and Disunity Today," Sobornost, Vol. VIII, No. 1 [1986], pp. 2327.)
