The Church confesses Christ, who has broken down the dividing wall (Ephesians 2:14). Christ, our
peace, has put an end to the hostility of race, ethnicity, gender, and economic class. The Church
proclaims Christ, confident this good news sets at liberty those captive behind walls of hostility
(cf. Luke 4:18).
