One With All

Christ was born in a world
where there was no room for him.
His first earthly home
was with people who had no home,
people who where regarded
as weak and powerless.
Christ belonged to people
who did not belong.

And so, with people for whom
there is no room in our world,
Christ is present.
And Christ calls us
to make our home among them,
to be one with them,
to love them as He does.

Not all of us literally need
to make our home among the rejected,
but all of us need
“to be at home” with them,
that is to be comfortable among them,
to spend time with them,
to laugh with them,
to cry with them,
to embrace them,
to be bound in fraternity with them,
to have them present within us,
always mindful of their needs.
To be one with God
is to be one with all.
