Jesus lives in us and suffers in us and through us. He accompanies us through our companionship with one another and reaches out to others through our witness. Jesus knows who I am and who he wills me to be. He knows the secret of why I was created. He knows my sins. He knows how to heal me of them, how to draw me to himself, how to make me the adopted son that I am meant to be in him for all eternity. And so my joys and sufferings are his infinitely wise, uniquely crafted, and tender love through which he shapes my life and leads me to my destiny. . .At the heart of life, of every moment of life, is companionship with the merciful God.
– John Janaro
