-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.


That’s very intresting. Thanks for sharing.
