When we touch Christ we touch God.
The Church is more than a company of forgiven sinners.
She is the Body of Christ, the Fullness of Him who Fills all in all.
Why has the Church been Formed and left in the world? – to be a people for the Lord’s Own Possession and to Worship the Son.
And He says of Himself, I am the Life, I am the Resurrection and the Life.
Far more than being Saviour, Shepherd, Lord, Leader, King, and so forth.
He is all these and more.
He Declares, I am the First and the Last, and the Living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am Alive for Evermore, and I have the Keys of death and of Hades.
The reason why the Church can Express Christ’s Life and Resurrection is because She knows that Life, that Resurrection Life.
