“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Galatians 3:27-28




All of you who were baptised into Christ

have clothed yourselves with Christ.


There is neither Jew nor Gentile,

neither slave nor free,

nor is there male and female,

for you are all one in Christ Jesus.


– Galatians 3:27-28 (NIV)






There is such an intimate union

between the baptised person and Christ,

a union so intense

that the Christian can be said to be "another Christ".


There is no real difference, nor should there be, between one person and another,

no difference even between man and woman:

both are made in the image and likeness of God.


For the faithful Christian, therefore, there is only one language

– the language which speaks to the heart and to the mind, without the noise of words,

making us know the Lord,

encouraging us to be more like Him,

as we demonstrate our love for Him and for one another

by obeying His commandments and doing His will,






"The Holy Spirit

was not content with saying that we are bathed and anointed:

here he says that we are clothed,

and the clothing we are given is not just something beautiful and costly:

it is Jesus Christ Himself,

who is the sum total of all beauty, all value, all richness, etc.


What he means is that the beauty of Jesus Christ,

His justice, His grace, His riches, His splendour,

shine out from us with the splendour of the sun

and is reflected as in the purest of mirrors"


– St. John of Avila






I am not worthy, Lord.

Create in me a clean heart and help me be more like You.
