Keeping a spirit of unity within our society and personal lives can be very difficult if we are not in communion with the Holy Spirit. On the Feast of the Holy Trinity, today’s homily challenges us to desire and love unity as Jesus did and not be destroyers of unity in today’s world.
- In today’s world where being in unity is difficult, it’s easier to destroy unity than build it up. Unity is hard.
- Unity is broken by sin. The devil always tries to divide.
- The Blessed Trinity, a Divine Family, has a unity that can’t be destroyed and is eternal.
- Jesus prayed that ALL may be one, believers and non-believers.
In the second reading, St. Paul says to agree with one another, and live in peace. Having unity in human relationships is very difficult. The Divine Family, the Holy Trinity, is the perfect example of unity.
Jesus wants us to have an eternal divine unity. Jesus’s prayer shows us the only way it can happen, by Him being in us as He prayed, “I in them and You in Me, so the world may know that You have loved them even as You have loved Me”.
