sublime unity

O God our Father,
good beyond and that is good,
fair beyond all that is fair
in whom is calmness and peace:
Heal the dissensions which divide us from one another,
and bring us back into a unity of love,
which may bear some likeness to your sublime nature.
Grant that we may be spiritually one,
as well in ourselves as in each other,
through that peace of yours that makes all things peaceful,
and through the grace, mercy and tenderness of your only Son.
Amen.

Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite,  late 5th Century,  mystical and Neoplatonic theologian

1 Corinthians 1:10

I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that all of you agree with one another in what you say
and that there be no divisions among you,
but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought.
