St. Paul calls us to endeavor to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. While in his own chains as a prisoner, he asks us to be bound to God and one another by the Spirit. Fr. Oldfield considers the how humility safeguards peace and forms our souls in virtue, while pride shatters it and cuts us off from the life-giving grace of God.
