A quotation without comment

"..true unity presupposes unity in truth. Error, falsehood, can never be the basis for true unity. That holy, supernatural unity of which our Lord speaks in the priestly prayer ut unum sint - that all may be one - can come to pass only in the profession of divine truth, in the membership of the Mystical Body of Christ. It is a unity which includes some but, by the same token, excludes others. As Father Werenfried van Straaten reminds us, 'Jesus' prayer that all may be one may not be separated from His other words: I say unto you that whoever does not enter by the door of the sheepfold is a thief and a robber....I am the door.'"

- Dr. Dietrich von Hildebrand
