Time for Reflection: Christ Has No Body

Hello Everyone,

The next week or two will be used for prayer, reading, and reflection. The time will hopefully generate some good posts in response. However, this blog will be getting hopefully a new writer during that time; writing and exploring his faith as a Catholic. I am looking forward to reading his post.

We have celebrated the Festival of Incarnation, but I ask the faithful to keep in mind that although Christ has come for our salvation, as followers of Christ he asks us to bring the Word to the world. As I reminder I will leave you with a poem attributed to St. Teresa of Avila:

Christ Has No Body

Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
compassion on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
