Unity among all

Thứ ba - 17/05/2016 02:22
"So that they may all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I in You" (Jn 17:21).

It is a prayer for unity among Christians; the same deep unity that exists between the Father and the Son: "So that they may all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I in You" (Jn 17:21).  
Deacon John Ruscheinsky
In today's Gospel of John, Jesus concludes His farewell discourse in saying these words: "I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one." This is Jesus' prayer to bring unity among all. Christ Jesus is praying for you and me, and for each person who believes in Him through His word passed down from one generation of believers to another. Yet His prayer takes us deeper than formal arrangements and agreements between churches and ecclesial bodies. It is a prayer for unity among Christians. A deeper unity as between the Father and the Son, "so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in Me and I in You." It's a unity that builds, brings it all together, and doesn't divide. For example, married couples strive to reach a level of unity that calls to mind the unity between God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son. Parents take every effort to foster unity within their families that reflects the Father and Son model of relationship. And finally members of a faith community need to overcome obstacles that disrupt harmony and peace, and the list goes on...  In the responsorial psalm we acclaim: Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope. You show us the path to life, fullness of joys in your presence (Ps 16: 11).
Points to Pray and Ponder: Jesus Christ had reconciled us all in one body, all for the love of God!
