Identified In Christ: Christian Morano



“Jesus held my hand and led me on a journey of healing and deliverance, bringing deep wounds and hidden darkness to the surface.”

My name is Christian Morano. I am Italian by birth and moved to London a few years ago. I grew up in a dysfunctional family where I felt controlled and abused by my mother. On the other hand, I had no emotional connection with my father.

In my early years, I started to experience same-sex attraction. I felt confused about my identity and this damaged my self-esteem. I hid this from my family because I felt ashamed and afraid of being rejected. Throughout my life, I was very sexually active. I fell in love with several guys, and I found myself addicted to pornography. I used to think that I was born gay. In reality, I was looking for real love, acceptance, and deep male connection; not for sex.



At the age of 18, I left home and got into drugs, clubbing, and more sex. A few months down the line, I was left disappointed and empty, feeling mentally and physically sick. I returned home and ended up joining a new age group. It was a mixture of new age and Catholic Christian teaching, resulting in me becoming a religious Christian.

I got so involved and excited that after one year, I started a five-year vocational journey in a Franciscan monastery where I made temporary vows of chastity, obedience, and poverty. In my fourth year in the monastery, I attended a charismatic conference where a preacher asked God to wash everyone with the blood of Jesus.

“Jesus held my hand and led me on a journey of healing and deliverance, bringing deep wounds and hidden darkness to the surface.”

Powerful healing broke out. I felt a vortex in my body, and I saw a huge demon in the spirit. I became more and more sensitive to the spirit realm. It is from that moment that I was attuned to the power of God in my mind and body. Jesus held my hand and led me on a journey of healing and deliverance, bringing deep wounds and hidden darkness to the surface.

"For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God"

Colossians 3:3

____________


One year after, I left the monastery. I had been feeling like I was part of a religious system, and it didn’t make sense for me to stay on. Jesus is alive. He wants to have a relationship with you. It’s a relationship over religion.


“ I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”

Galatians 2:20

____________

Through Jesus, I found my true identity as a son of God. I found my purpose and my destiny. Most of all, I found real love in a real friend. His love transformed my life and now I am a new creation in Him.
