"[The parish's] unity is not predicated upon uniformity, but upon community. This is the thrust of all the images that the New Testament employs - a marriage, a building, a household, a body. Its unity is not dissolved by the number or diversity of parishes. Each parish is a finished picture of the whole Church. Each fully represents the purpose of the whole. The whole church is in every part." - *The Life of God in the Life of the Parish* - from *The Church* p. 112.
