This weekend at Mass, Saint Paul urges the Ephesians to strive "to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace" (Ephesians 4:3). Since we live in a fallen world, peace and unity no longer come naturally to us. As St. Paul notes, we have to strive for unity through the bond of peace. Unity is the fruit of maintaining the "bond of peace." This is true for our parish, as well as each of our homes and the broader community. If we want to stay united, we have to be intentional about fostering peace with our neighbors. We can't take each other for granted or feed animosity with those around us. We are called to be docile to what the Holy Spirit is doing in our hearts and homes. Reliant on the Holy Spirit, we hope to experience the unity and peace that God intends for us. This is especially important in our most difficult relationships. Doing what we can to maintain peace and avoid callous remarks or intentional provocations is crucial. The hard work of maintaining peace happens when we choose to love our enemies. As Saint Teresa of Calcutta said, “If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies.” May we rely on the Holy Spirit to accomplish the good work of fostering peace and unity in our homes and parish.
