Church unity shows working of Holy Spirit, Pope says

Catholic World News - April 29, 2014

Unity within the Church is a sign of “rebirth form on high,” Pope Francis said in a homily at Mass on April 29.

The early Christian community showed “one heart and mind,” the Pope said, noting the absence of quarreling, power struggles, and gossip. This was evidence of the working of the Holy Spirit, he said, whereas the devil is “the father of division.”

Because of this unity, the early Christians could bear witness more powerfully to the outside world, the Pope continued. Moreover, the Church was united in its service to the poor.
