The truth dictates that we, all human beings, are one. Otherwise, each one of us would have a human nature different from that of other human beings. That is the absurd.
Furthermore, we humans are the image and likeness of the one and indivisible God; otherwise, our image and likeness would be polytheistic.
We incur in the absurd whenever we break our essential unity by establishing antagonistic groups among ourselves, and resorting to various means to perpetuate our fragmentation, i.e. economic inequalities, international aggression, genocide, cultural differences and mass killings, among others.
The Spirit of God, always active in us, is constantly redirecting us towards unification: “each one heard them speaking in his own language” (Acts 2:6). No matter how large the crowd may be, the Holy Spirit will always remain with us if we sincerely allow him in our life.
It is our responsibility to make every effort to live in unity among individuals, groups, and nations, so we may be living witnesses of our one and indivisible human nature, as well as witnesses of the Spirit of God living in us. Failure to do so will lead us to mutual destruction.
