Mystical Humanity of Christ is the Very Heart of our Faith
"I've always been of a mind that the Mystical Humanity of Christ was the life of the interior indwelling of God's Holy Spirit. That Christ, the Blessed Trinity itself, dwells within us. It is that we become His other humanity, His resurrected life. He died and left the world, true, but He continues to live in His resurrected life through our humanities. To me this is the very heart and apex of our Catholic faith."
Father Frank Parrish, S.J. (1911-2003)
