If we are united, Jesus is among us. And this has value. It is worth more than any other treasure that our heart may possess, more than mother, father, brothers, sisters, children. It is worth more than our house, our work, or our property; more than the works of art in a great city like Rome; more than our business deals; more than nature which surrounds us with flowers and fields, the sea and the stars; more than our own soul. It is Jesus who, inspiring his saints with his eternal truths, leaves his mark upon every age. This too is his hour.

See Jesus in every neighbor? "If your eye is simple," Chiara Lubich writes, "the one who looks through it is God."
