“Being Christian means allowing oneself to be renewed by Jesus in this new life.
‘I am a good Christian, I go to Mass every Sunday from 11 til noon, I do this, I do that’. . . as if it were a collection.
But the Christian life is not a collage of things.
It is a harmonious whole, harmonious, and the Holy Spirit does it!
He renews all things: He renews our heart, our life, and makes us live differently, but in a way that takes up the whole of our life.
You cannot be a Christian of pieces, a part time Christian.
Being a part-time Christian simply doesn’t work!
The whole, everything, full-time.
The Spirit accomplishes this renewal.
Being Christian ultimately means, not doing things,
but allowing oneself to be renewed by the Holy Spirit
– or, to use the words of Jesus, becoming new wine.”
