Unite all Christians in Christ Jesus, the true and only universal Head; that by the true Christian Catholic faith and love, they may grow up in him, and may keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace; the strong receiving, and bearing the infirmities of the weak. Heal the divisions that are among believers let nothing be done through strife or vain-glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than himself. And let all men know that we are Christ's disciples, by our fervent love to one another.
