Fr. Thomas Colyandro
We Have Chosen Disunity
You prayed, O Lord.
"I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me" (John 17:20-23).
To this, we have responded with a resounding "No."
We did not choose His peace.
We have chosen to war with each other.
We ought to be more ashamed.
