St. Sophrony - On war and unity

Wars drag practically everyone into moral participation in the slaughter. There is no worse sin than war… Reasonable man has to become perfect after the image of the Triune Divinity. This is the meaning, the purpose and the task of Christ’s Church. ‘That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us…’ [John 17:21]. It is clear that every member of the Church must come to fulness of likeness to Christ, even to identity. Otherwise, there will be no unity of the Church in the image of the oneness of the Holy Trinity.
