Pope Leo XIII On The Unity of the Church.
"That they may be one" - "Ut unum sint" has been the rallying cry of Churchmen since Vatican II, and the explanation for the promotion of an ecumenical agenda that places "unity" before everything. But what is the nature of the unity for which the Lord prayed His heavenly Father on the way to Gethsemane? Indeed, most Catholics cannot answer with precision what exactly the Church is, the conditions for belonging to it, or its necessity for salvation. If you want a clear and concise explanation of these principles, Satis Cognitum is the place to begin.
Written when popes said what they meant and meant what they said, it is free from the ambiguities which are so characteristic of late 20th century explanations of these issues. "Wherefore, in His divine wisdom, He ordained in His Church Unity of Faith; a virtue which is the first of those bonds which unite man to God, and whence we receive the name of the faithful - 'one Lord, one faith, one baptism' " (Eph. 4:5).
