Are there wounds in this unity? … Unfortunately, we see that in the process of history, and now too, we do not always live in unity. At times misunderstanding arises, as well as conflict, tension, and division, which injure the Church, and so she does not … express love, the love that God desires. It is we who create wounds! And if we look at the divisions that still exist among Christians … we are aware of the effort required to make this unity fully visible. God gives us unity, but we often have a lot of trouble putting it into practice. It is necessary to seek to build communion, to teach communion, … starting with the family, … in ecumenical dialogue too. We need reconciliation and communion, and the Church is the home of communion.
