To be fully human is to be more than human

Dec. 1 at 8:31am

Making my way through Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation, I come across passage after passage that lifts my personalist heart. Here is just one:

We become fully human when we become more than human, when we let God bring us beyond ourselves in order to attain the fullest truth of our being. 

This is the kernel of the mystery of our being-as-persons. The roots of our being lie beyond ourselves, in God. The fulfillment of our being lies in God, through others.
