God calls every one of us into a relationship of intimate, personal, loving, and life-giving communion. He is inviting us to share his life and the life of his whole family. Our response to God’s invitation to intimacy and communion is to be the person he created and calls us to be—to make a gift of ourselves—because when we give ourselves away in love, we truly find ourselves.
