In today’s Gospel, Jesus prays that his disciples might have the precious gift of inner unity after the model of the perfect unity of Jesus with the Father. This unity will be seen in unbroken fidelity to God; in harmony in our relationships with others; and through inner serenity in our hearts. The evil one will stir up hatred and oppression, trying to confuse, mislead and totally disrupt inner peace of people. It is reassuring to keep returning to the assurance given by this prayer of Jesus. It is important that we as disciples of Jesus are united in the essentials of our faith so that we can proclaim Jesus as Lord, Risen and Victorious over sin.
