Principles and Practices - July 3

One With And In

Such is our union with Christ that we, and all Christians, are one not only with Christ, but in Christ. We belong to Christ. We are one in Christ Jesus: we are of Christ. Thus is the 'mystical Body' constituted: Christ and Christians form one sole moral person, one sole living orgacism.
