"From that secret and unspoken unity in myself can eventually come a visible and manifest unity of all Christians.
"If we want to bring together what is divided, we cannot do so by imposing one division upon the other. If we do this, the union is not Christian. It is political and doomed to further conflict. We must contain all the divided worlds in ourselves and transcend them in Christ."
- Thomas Merton, "Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander", p. 12
