Virtue of the Month: Unity

The state or quality of being one, in accord, or in harmony.

I will

  • make everyone feel welcomed and appreciated
  • take sometime to learn about the similarities and difference in my community
  • empower people with my words not put them down by calling them names.

Prayer

You, the one From whom on different paths All of us have come.

To whom on different paths All of us are going. Make strong in our hearts what unites us.

Build bridges across all that divides us;United make us rejoice in our diversity.

At one in our witness to your peace, A rainbow of your glory.

Amen.

Br. David Steindl-Rast, OSB

At his last supper with his disciples he prayed a prayer for all who would believe in him: “that they may all be one; even as Thou, Father, art in Me, and I in Thee, that they also may be in Us; that the world may believe that Thou didst send Me.” John 17:21
