Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed saying:
“I pray not only for these,
but also for those who will believe in me through their word,
so that they may all be one,
From Today’s Gospel, John 17:20
How may we be one Lord? As we await you, we seem to do it all so differently. If unity is our goal, conflict is our specialty. Why can’t we just be one in you?
Let us pray for unity among those who believe – a unity that we can’t really understand. It won’t be about my way or his way or her way, but about Your Way, O Lord.
It is only through Jesus that we may remember the one body and become as one through you.
Please come Holy Spirit and lead us on this way.
Veni Sancte Spiritus.
