But now, in union with Jesus Christ, you who used to be far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ... Christ came to preach the good news of peace to all. It is through Christ that all of us, the Jews & the Gentiles, are able to come in one spirit into the presence of the Father. (Eph 2:13-18)
Jesus Christ is a messenger of peace & unity. Through his death at the cross he brought the Jews & the Gentiles as one race in the presence of the Father. Jesus wanted us to imitate him through the Eucharist; to die from our pride & self-centeredness creating in us a humble & loving heart; to promote peace & unity among his people.
