Finding our true self in God we find everyone else in God. Indeed, we come to experience our true oneness with all in our common humanity and even more in our oneness in Christ the head of humanity. We are drawn to enter deeply into the mystery of God's love working in the life of each one of us. There is a union and a communion. We come to love our neighbors in truth as our very selves.
