Blessed John Paul II: "Christ is in you"

If the Spirit of the one who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the one who raised Christ from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also, through his Spirit that dwells in you.
-- Rom 8:1-11

Life in the Holy Spirit fulfills the vocation of man (chapter one). This life is made up of divine charity and human solidarity (chapter two). It is graciously offered as salvation (chapter three). (CCC 1699)

The memorial is celebrated today in the Archdiocese of Washington on the occasion of the dedication of the new Blessed Pope John Paul II college seminary as well as in the dioceses of Rome and Poland.
