Psalm, # 133 verse 1 (NKJV)
1) Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!
Unity ? Oh people is it even possible ?
One part of me say yes and the other is not sure.
I say this because we as a nation are not united. In politics nor in faith. In theology and in doctrine neither are we united. Even when it comes to the word of God in the Holy Bible we have two separate versions, meaning the Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible. And of those, I’ve lost count as to how many different versions and interpretations there are. And lets not forget the Apocrypha’s that have been omitted by both.
So I ask you to think about this verse and pray and meditate with me today, and even all this week, that God our Father will see and bless our meager attempts to come together for the common good. Pray with a true heart of compassion and respect for the concerns of our faith. Ask that, His Son and their combined Holy Spirit come and bless us all and bring us together in unity. Ask that, our unity be re-affirmed in His Son and in their Holy will, when needed most. But mostly that we hold fast the common fabric that holds all 34(+) thousand different Christian beliefs together.
Our faith in Him and His divine will for all peoples.
I believe then and only then we will be truly united in the will of God against evil and corruption that plagues mankind. That we can put aside our differences and in Christian Brotherhood and Sisterhood unite with Him, for the worlds sake.
Have a blessed day and week for that matter, in the love and bond that holds us all together in His sake and cause.
Sincerely yours in service to all mankind and Jesus our salvation,
Bp. Andrew R. M. Manley DD., O.S.A., O.S.P.
