...that we may participate in His Resurrection.
We participate in His Passion by penance and carrying our daily crosses, but especially in the Eucharist, the Carnal Intimacy between Christ and His Bride, which is the Very Crucifixion Itself made present before us. Only by joining ourselves to Christ in the Flesh can we hope to survive death for He alone survives death. "Amen, amen I say unto you: Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you shall not have life in you." (Jn 6:54)
