We have a choice to move from seeing ourselves stuck with one another to cultivating and celebrating our communion with each other. We have obligations to each other and to the planet. And there is no greater perversion of religion than the false piety of insisting on the separation of the political from the spiritual. Since the principle is “being is communion,” how we arrange our common life is central to a healthy spirituality. Politics is simply the means we use to organize our shared lives. It is how we express responsible solidarity.
