Society has always attempted to grasp onto unity, solidarity and security by sacrifices.
In all sacrificial systems there is always a victim and therefore there can never be unity.
Jesus recognised that there can never be unity if society is formed by any ‘over against’; where one group lords it over anyone. It is humans that scatter themselves, not God, because of the inherited futility of building a social order at the expense of the victim.
The cross of Christ, beginning with the tearing of the Temple curtain at the moment of death, has opened the approach to God to all humanity. The Paraclete, the Spirit of our God has continued that unveiling for you and me.
Solidarity, Unity forever must be our catch cry.
