following Christ: short version

In a previous post I commented about my reflections on Lumen Gentium 31, and explicitly wrote a commitment that focused on the fact that baptized people share the priestly, prophetical and kingly functions of Christ. Here I present a shorter version, which I like very much for its concreteness and for the fact that expresses nicely how I believe I can share the office of King. Hoping that this version may be useful to someone, I am writing it here: 

my short version:

I, Marc,

as priest in Christ I will offer God prayers for the world

as prophet in Christ I will speak God's news to his people.

as king in Christ I will spend my talents, time and treasure
     by loving my fellow humans as He had loved us.
