To Be As One

January 4, 2016

To Be As One

 “ In this Year of Mercy, it is important during January for us to consider, contemplate, and act on Christian Unity and Interreligious Dialogue.   

Jesus said, “Holy Father, keep them in your name that you

have given me, so that they may be one just as we are one.”

“Chiara Lubich is the founder of Focolare, a movement that promotes unity, reconciliation and the spirit of love. In one of her writings she points out: ‘In this world we are all brothers and sisters and yet we pass each other as if we were strangers.’ Too true. Even in our Sunday gatherings we often do not know the people around us. We come and we go. We cling to our own paths too frequently, and seldom know the richness of the people around us; seldom are able to share and celebrate their triumphs; seldom able to share and grieve their losses. And yet, Jesus calls us to be one as he and the Father are one; to be one in knowing each other and loving one another.”  ~ An excerpt from a Paulist blog post by Fr. John Geaney, CSP, May 2015
