Excerpt from "Tranformation in Christ" by Fr. John Catoir, JCD (CLICK ABOVE FOR FULL ARTICLE)

According to Father Thomas Radcliff, a former Superior General of the Dominican Order, “This
is what the phrase transformation in Christ means: We become, by God’s grace, what others
need us to be, namely, a ‘living Presence.’
We are no longer our natural selves.”

The word transformation is defined as ‘a thorough change in one’s manner and appearance’.
Becoming more Christlike is a matter of acting with kindness, mercy and justice. As these acts
become habitual, they form one’s character and destiny.
First, we recognize sin;
second, we renounce sin;
then, finally we "reach
the pinnacle of joy, and
come to the light of God."
-- Canto One, Divine Comedy
Dante writes that there can be no
direct ascent to the mount of joy . . .
"Christ came to bring joy. . . joy is
the keynote of the Christian
message and the recurring motif of
the Gospels ... go, therefore, and
become messengers of joy!"
-- Saint Pope John Paul II
GOD BLESS YOU!

May the Passion and Death of Our Lord
Jesus Christ, the merits of the Blessed
Virgin Mary and all the saints, and
whatsoever good you do or suffering
you endure -- cleanse you of all your
sins,  bring you an increase of grace,
and prepare you for the joys of
eternal life with Our Heavenly Father.
Amen.
