[Pope Francis] has tellingly spoken about what he calls the “ecumenism of blood”, pointing out that today’s Christian martyrs — and there are many — are killed without regard for their denomination. The persecutors don’t ask whether they are murdering a Presbyterian or an Evangelical, he has insisted, they just know they are targeting a Christian. In this, they understand the reality of our true unity in the Christian faith better than we do. Indeed, by baptism we are already united!
