The universal unity of the Church is an important element of Christ’s Church. This oneness is known as ‘Catholicity’. The symbol of this unity is the ‘Communion’ of the millions of Orthodox around the world and their common summary of faith known as the Nicene Creed. This Creed is Christianity’s oldest, and was universal among Christians until the eleventh century schism between Rome and the East. It is still recited during the Orthodox Divine Liturgy (Eucharist) in its original form, with no deletions or additions.
