There are many million of followers of Jesus Christ in the world today belonging to thousands of different churches with new churches starting almost every day. We can ask, “Why is there no unity amongst Christians?” Is it right for so many break-away churches all claiming to follow Jesus Christ?” Unity amongst the followers of Jesus is a dream to work for. Unity within a church, within a parish, within groups in a parish and in our own families is a dream too. The words of a popular hymn are a call to us all. “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.”
The glory which you have given me I have given t them, that they may be one, even as we are one. I in them and you in me, may they become perfectly one so that the world may know that you have sent me.“ John 17:22-23.
Pope Francis: The spirituality of family love is made up of 1000s of small but real gestures. In that variety of gifts and encounters which deepen communion God has his dwelling place. AL315.
