There is one body and one spirit, just as you were called to the one hope
of your calling, one lord, one faith, one baptism,
one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.
— Ephesians 4:4-6
One of the discoveries we discern when we pray is the closer we come to God, the closer we come to all our sisters and brothers in the human family. God is not a private God. The God who dwells in our inner sanctuary is also the same God who dwells in the inner sanctuary of others.
Thus we recognize God's presence in our own hearts and in the hearts of others, because the God who has chosen us as a dwelling place gives us the eyes to see the God who dwells in others.
