Every parent knows how distressing it is when children fight. A fractured relationship is an open wound for all. How much our heavenly Father must despair over the lack of unity amongst Christians! Sunday’s Gospel reminds us that no one group has a monopoly on God’s grace. As the Church strives for unity, let us begin in our own relationships with others.
Father in Heaven,
we know how you long for us to be one.
Give us the grace to seek unity with others.
