St. Augustine Arguing With the Donatists, by Charles Andre Van Loo (1705-1765)

The Donatists were holier-than-thou schismatics.  That sect has gone to the dustbin of history, but their attitude lives on.–KRT

Prayer Source = James G. Kirk, When We Gather:  A Book of Prayers for Worship, Year C (Philadelphia, PA:  Geneva Press, 1985)


Said in unison:

O God, have mercy upon us, and through Christ forgive our sin.  He called the church to be one body with parts to make it function.  We sever that one body through suspicion and hostility; we cannot dine around one common table.  We divide into separate bodies and pretend to be the church.  We take from one another what belongs to us all.  By your grace make us one in Christ.
