    About the book

    In a world where social communication networks are multi­plying out of all proportion, paradoxically there seems to be an ever-increasing sense of isolation and loneliness. In this context, one wonders about the deeper meaning of life. How are we fulfilled? Where do we find true happiness? On the one hand, society exalts individualism and self-determina­tion. But on the other many people yearn for authentic and profound relationships. They ask, often with a sense of anxi­ety: "What is the meaning of my life? How can I reconcile seemingly conflicting demands? How do we build relation­ships of true communion?" By living the experience of Jesus in the midst, as presented in this book, we can find the answer to these questions that touch the heart of every person, an answer that does not come from human reasoning, but from life.
