May 3, 2018 (St. Philip and James: Apostles)

Tertullian states that the unity of the Church rests on the fact that the Church is apostolic:”Every family can be traced back to its origins. That is why we can say that all these great churches constitute that one original Church of the Apostles, for it is from them that they all come. They are all primitive, all apostolic, because they are all one. They bear witness to this unity by the peace in which they all live, the brotherhood which is their name, the fellowship to which they are pledged.”
