Resurrexi et adhuc tecum sum. [I arose and am still with thee]

You are the image of the invisible God. You are the first born of creation.
You are before all things. In you all things hold together.
You are the head of the body. You are the beginning.
You are the Firstborn from the dead. You are the Lord of Life. [adapted from Col 1:15-18]
