A Protestant apologist of long-time acquaintance recently received a letter from a Catholic apologist who closed his letter with “In Christ and his mother” before his name. This was of no small bother to her, apparently, and she wants to know if this is consistent with Catholic theology.
I told her the truth: I don’t know, but I would ask. It makes sense to close with “In Christ,” seeing as we’re his body, but how can one be said to be “In. . . his mother”?
Thanks in advance for whatever help is provided.
