13. Jesus' public life
Christians "have to meditate on the life of Christ, from his birth in a manger to his death and resurrection (...). It is necessary to know it well. Thus, we must have the life of Christ “in our heart and mind, so that at any time, without any book, we can close our eyes and contemplate his life, watching it like a film (...). “In this way we become involved in his life. It is not a matter of just thinking about Jesus, of recalling some scenes of his life. "We must be completely involved and play a part in his life (actors). We must follow him as closely as Mary his Mother did, the first twelve, the holy women and the crowds that pressed about him. If we do this without holding back, Christ’s words will enter deep into our soul and will really change us." (St. Josemaria Escrivá, “Christ Is passing By”, 107).
