Medallion of the Collège de France featuring the phrase "Ut Omnes Unum Sint", Latin for That they all may be one.

That they all may be one is a phrase derived from a verse in the Bible at John 17:21, which says:

That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me".

The phrase forms the basis of several ecumenical movements and united and uniting denominational traditions. It is also a common sermon topic on church unity.

The phrase is the official motto of the Church of South India . The Latin version, Ut Omnes Unum Sint, is the motto of the World Student Christian Federation and the YMCA. The United Church of Christ has the same motto except for a change in the place of one word: "That they may all be one."

Pope John Paul II published an encyclical under the Vulgate form this title, Ut Unum Sint.

The Society of The Atonement started the worldwide observance of "The Church Unity Octave." The work of this Roman Catholic, Franciscan, religious order is Ecumenism.[1]
