Qui fecit utraque unum (Eph 2:14).

Who made us both one.

As human beings we are divided not only into body and soul, but also into different groups. It is very difficult for us to join these parts together. For that reason, Jesus comes to make us one. He knows that as long as we are separated, we are weak and fragile. Nevertheless our vocation is to live in unity and to be strong, we are miserably broken. Nonetheless we want to build one body, we have no power to attain it. We lack inner peace and are unable to recover it. Therefore, we need so much the healing power of the cross. Only through it we have access in one Spirit to the Father. Without it we are still strangers and sinners. Just in Jesus we can become saints and members of the household of God. Jesus Christ is the foundation of our faith and hope so that we might join together and grow into a holy temple. In him we are being built together into a dwelling place of God by the Spirit.
