Christ expressed a desire for us to imitate this unity [among the Trinity]: “That they may be one, as We are.” For nothing can be compared with unity and harmony. For when an individual becomes united with others, this person becomes multiplied. If ten persons are united in spirit, that individual is no longer alone, but each one of them becomes tenfold, and you will find the ten united as one, and in each one the ten. And if they have an enemy, because he is attacking not one person, but, as it were, ten, he will be vanquished. Each one of these people now has twenty hands, twenty eyes, and twenty feet. He sees, not only with his own eyes but also with those of the rest. He walks, not only with his own feet but also with those of the rest. He works not only with his own hands but also with those of others. He has ten lives, for not only does he care for his own, but those others also take care of him. Imagine if there were a hundred people in the group. Do you perceive the excellence of charity [love]: how it makes the individual person invincible. What nature cannot do, charity [love] can! Do you see how charity multiples a person’s strength. Why then do we restrict our charity [love] to one or two? – St. John Chrysostom
