"It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me" (Galatians 2:20). I live, but I am no longer I...No, this phrase is an expression of what happened at baptism. My "I" is taken away from me and is incorporated into a new and great subject. This means that my "I" is back again, but now transformed, broken up, opened through incorporation into the other, in whom it acquires its new breadth of existence.
