Unity is not some lofty ideal but rather something that is real regardless of any hurt, difference, or conflict that seems to divide us. Jesus prayed multiple times that we may all be one as He is one with the Father (cf. John 17:11, 21). This unity, even amongst the greatest challenges, is first brought about through union with God, and then union with others. That is why in Mark’s Gospel Jesus’ first words are to “Come” (Mark 16:15). Through God’s grace let us dive deeper in this invitation to come to our Lord, to learn from Him, abide in Him, so that we can GO! out into the world and foster true unity!
