Full communion is “everyone being able to participate together in the body and blood of Christ.”
These are the words of the Pope.
The reasons Christian communities are divided, he said, include differences in “dogmatic and moral principles and theological concepts, pastoral differences, political motives and self-interest to the point of clashing due to resentments and personal ambition.”
Full communion, he said, is “everyone being able to participate together in the body and blood of Christ.”
Catholics are called to pray for Christian unity, be open to “dialogue and encounter,” welcome what is “valid and positive that is offered us even from those who think differently from us or who pose a different position.”
The Pope said, “It’s painful” to see so many divisions among Christians when they all believe in Jesus Christ as Lord, God the Father and the Holy Spirit.

The Pope wants to see all “Christians” united under his leadership. This kind of unity is impossible, for all who believe in the Bible.
Evangelical Christians should rather be willing to be martyred, than to call any religious leader for “father”. And absolutely not call any man for “holy father’.
And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.
If the Pope removes his office, there might be Christian unity. Because when the Pope has cancelled the doctrine about his lordship and his infallibility, the main obstacle that blocks unity has been removed. Next, remove the title “father” from all Catholic priests. Than they might become equal with people who obey the scripture. All Christians desire unity based on the Word of God.
