"Christian"


#1

Christ-ian

-An (-Ian) means to belong to something, to be related to something, to be skilled in something, and to be characterized of something.

Christi- means the Body of Christ, the Eucharist.

A Christian must belong to Christ and to His Body the Church, must be a brother of Christ and a child of his Mother the Church, must imitate Christ and obey the Church, and must become like Christ and be sustained by the Eucharist like the Church is.
