When Jesus calls us to follow him, and when we are baptized, we are inserted into his mystical body, we are made members of “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own,” as St. Peter reminds us in his First Letter (1 Peter 2:9). This fact — that we are called to be Christ’s companions, in the plural, to walk with him in loving fellowship with our brothers and sisters in the Church — is so important to Jesus that he made it the main identification badge of all Christians.
