Jn 17: 20-26

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.

Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. “Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me. I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.”

E Pluribus Unum

Jesus prays to his Father, his Abba, at the end of the Last Supper just before setting out with his disciples across the Kidron Valley to Gethsemani to face his arrest and Passion. Calling upon his loving relationship with His Father, he fervently prays to bring all humanity into that bond.  With total love he faces total rejection by us whom he has loved.  Nonetheless, his trifold prayer for us resonates through our salvation history: May we be believers as one, hearing him in the voices of other believers across time, an everlasting communion of saints.

May we be perfected in our unity, all for One, witnessing to the world that Jesus has been sent for us all.  And may we be with God, present one day with Jesus, the One for all, in heaven as he has been present so constantly with us here as we prepare for eternity.

Prayer

Holy God, source of all life and possibility,
you fulfilled the Easter promise by sending us your Holy Spirit.
May that Spirit unite the races and nations of the earth.
May your Holy Spirit strengthen our hearts and homes. Amen.
