DG BookGospel: John 17:20-26
I pray not only for these, but also for those whoI pray not only for these, but also for
those who through their word will believe in me. May they all be one,as you Father
are in me and I am in you. May they be onein us, so that the world may believe
that you have sent me.

I have given them the glory you have given me, that theyI have given them the glory you have given me,
that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. Thus they shall reach perfection in unity;
and the world shall know that you have sent me, and that I have loved them, just asyou loved me.

Father, since you have given them to me, I want them toFather, since you have given them to me, I want
them to be with me where I am, and see the glory you gave me, for you loved me before the foundation
of the world.

Righteous Father, the world has not known you, but I have Righteous Father, the world has not known you,
but I have known you, and these have known that you have sent me.As I revealed your name to them, so
will I continue to revealit, so that the love with which you loved me may be in them,and I also may be in them.”

Reflection

“May they all be one as we are “May they all be one as we areone.” Jesus prayed for the unity of all believers.
Not just a simple unity, but a unity patterned after that of the Father and Jesus themselves! Further, he hoped
that it would be by this unity that the world would believe in him. Even after 2,000 years,unity of all believers
is still adream. Have we miserably failed Christ’s desire? It is high time we brought ecumenical unity out of a
nominal week long concernin the month of January and made it a daily central project. As Cardinal Walter Kasperreminds us,
ecumenism is the new Pentecost that is waiting to happen, if only we work towardsit! Not a unity as we prefer,
buta “unity as God wills, when hewills, and by whatever mean she wills,” as famously prayed Fr.Paul Couturier, 
one of the initial protagonists of the ecumenical movement. Let us not failChrist’s prayer.
