"It is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me." —Galatians 2:20
Giving God permission to dwell within us, thereby transforming us into another incarnate son or daughter, has been at the heart of the Christian Gospel for millennia. It is not just one theological doctrine among many; it is the ultimate goal of the entire Christian life. The only goal in God's becoming human is to continue his life in ours.
In Christ Alive in Me: Living as a Member of the Mystical Body, Fr. David Meconi, S.J., explains the theology of Christian deification, which is also the theology of the Mystical Body of Christ. Although this radical aspect of the Gospel has been forgotten by many today, Meconi seeks to reclaim this central truth and uncover what it means live with, in, and even "as" Christ.
Discover what it is to become other Christs, living extensions of the Lord himself: to become his eyes and ears, his heart and words, his hands and feet on earth.
