The Apostle urges the followers of Jesus Christ to allow His Word and life to penetrate hearts and transform lives: to live as a “new creation.”
As Saint Ephrem of Syria taught, “Blessed the one who draws near with fear and trembling and dread to the spotless Mysteries of the Savior and has realized that he has received in himself eternal life.”
Hence, wolves changed into sheep; sinners into disciples, zombies into human beings. Now that’s a new creation!
The Holy Eucharist and the Divine Office are graces beyond compare.
