Translated from the original by Ana Giménez.
I need to know to whom I shall address myself when praying, in this deep dialogue which teaches me to love. To the “Most Sacred Humanity of Christ”, I answer without any doubt. With this key expression we mean the Church´s faith in Christ “true man and true God”, it was said in the 2nd century “a person in two natures” maintained by the Council of Chalcedon.
“Most Sacred Humanity” means Christ just risen, Man and God. The expression is not Teresa´s original one, it is used by the masters of the “recogidos” school, to which she belongs. Its origins come from the first Christian communities in Antioch (Syria nowadays).
In our prayer, we will always start out from Christ Man. We will know Him as a Man, the way He behaved in the world when He lived with us, or after having risen. We will always start from His Humanity to learn how to be more human and along with Him, more divine.
Teresa follows Saint John´s Gospel, where Cross and Resurrection go together. The Resurrection starts in the Cross. Christ is alive but the suffering of the world continues till Christ´s second coming and He asks us to help Him.
