Another discovery (how ignorant I have been!) in the midst of writing my essay. In the finale of Les Miserables, Victor Hugo writes, “To love another person is to see the face of God.” Does this not ring true to 1 John 4:12, "No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, … Continue reading Hugo’s version of 1 John 4:12
