UNIFORMITY

Being the same everywhere. applied to the Church, uniformity of doctrine in faith and morals must be taught, either in solemn definitions or in her ordinary universal magisterium. Outside of this sphere, there is great pluriformity, according to different cultures and needs of the people. (Etym. Latin uniformis, having one form.)
