Jesus looked up to heaven and prayed, «I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world whereas I am going to you. Holy Father, keep them in your Name that you have given me, so that they may be one, just as we are. When I was with them, I kept them safe in your Name, and not one was lost except the one who was already lost, and in this the Scripture was fulfilled.
»But now I am coming to you and I leave these my words in the world that my joy may be complete in them. I have given them your word and the world has hated them because they are not of the world; just as I am not of the world. I do not ask you to remove them from the world but to keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world; consecrate them in the truth —your word is truth. I have sent them into the world as you sent me into the world, and for their sake, I go to the sacrifice by which I am consecrated, so that they too may be consecrated in truth».
The Trinitarian unity is wished for us and with the grace of God, it is a possibility, assures us Jesus, in His prayer to the Father. For this unity, we need not be separated from the world, but be aware that we belong to God, even though we are living here in this earth. If our life is filled with love and charity, and finds its reason in the divine love for the meaning, and the resource to live, then, we are already in union with Jesus.
To have this union, we should think and act, as if we are divine beings, sent by God to this world, (just like Jesus) and be a faithful messenger of God’s love. God doesn’t wish that we run away from this world, rather to take up our daily crosses, and march towards, the house of the Lord, as a pilgrim. It is not in isolation and individual perfection, rather as a people of God, one single community that we are called to live. Isn’t the Trinitarian communion, the source of our Faith ? Isn’t in this communion that our life finds its source and end?
