Seeing beyond

“Apart from seeing God’s image in the other one cannot see God. Apart from loving the other one cannot love God (1 Jn. 4:20). Salvation becomes a way of seeing God disguised in the body and face of the other despite their socio-economic, cultural, ethnographic, racial, gender, and language otherness. Thus, the process of discerning Christ in the other, even in his/her most distressful condition (Mt. 25:31-46), becomes the Christoforming power in one’s life that ultimately allows one to see God. Seeing Christ in the other makes one like Christ… There is no future and no salvation without the other.”
Daniela Augustine
