"But Christ in me"

Loved this meditation from Fr. Gerald Vann, OP:

Of course we have to try to keep the commandments;  but the essential is to try to keep them in such a way that we learn to see more and more clearly our true Center, to keep our eyes more and more on on God and less and less on ourseslves, to say  " I live, now not I, but Christ lives in me. " There are, in fact, two opposite heresies here which we have to avoid:  the one says, If I do right, it doesn't matter what I am;  the other says, If I am right, it doesn't matter what I do.  We have to try to live in God, to be right;  but we learn to be right only through slowly and painfully trying to do right.....
