FERNANDEZ E., Samuel. 'Ya no vivo yo, es Cristo que vive en mí' (Gál 2, 20): 'Ser Cristo' como clave de la vida del padre Alberto Hurtado. Teol. vida [online]. 2005, vol.46, n.3, pp. 352-373. ISSN 0049-3449. doi: 10.4067/S0049-34492005000200003.
In the writings of Alberto Hurtado, the most frequently-cited biblical verse is Galatians 2: 20, "I live now not with my own life but with the life of Christ who lives in me " In many writings, as well, Father Hurtado emphasizes the centrality of this Pauline ideal in Christian spirituality: "How simple our spirituality becomes! To be Christ." These observations indicate that Gal 2: 20 is the key to the spirituality of the Jesuit saint. The present article offers a systematic presentation of the content of Gal 2: 20 in the writings of Father Hurtado, in order to find a key that permits one to understand the spirituality, and in a wider sense, the life of the Jesuit saint. Identification with Christ, proposed by Gal 2: 20, constitutes this key that conjugates the Pauline ideal of "being Christ" with the recognition of Christ in the other, especially the poor, proposed by the theology of the Mystical Body
