St. Paul, in our second reading from his letter to the Galatians, professes that “the life I live now is not my own; Christ is living in me” (2:20). This verse echoes in the hearts of all Resurrectionists and other followers of Christ who attempt to empty and wholly deny themselves in order that Christ may dwell in them and act through them. Indeed, this Pauline verse is included in the Resurrectionists’ Constitutions as the summation of the Christian life that imitates Christ “so intimately that we live, die, and rise with him” (no. 6).
