Pope calls Christian unity a 'moral imperative'
For Benedict XVI, Christian unity is a moral imperative. He says in order to obtain it, we must overcome any pessimism or resignation about the process. This came during the closing ceremony of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity at Rome's Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls. The Pope emphasized his closeness to the Christian communities of Jerusalem and used them as an example of unity.
