"Every person has a mother and a father; he recieves help from others and is obliged to help others and to develop his talents for the benefit of all. Since man is God's 'image', in a certain way he reflects God, who in his depths is not alone but triune (and thus life, love, dialogue, and exchange). Finally, love is the central commandment for all Christians; through it we profoundly belong together and are fundamentally dependent on one another. "You shall love your neighbor as yourself" (Mt 22:39)." Youcat
