Live the Liturgy ~ Inspiration for the Week

St. Theresa of Avila reminds us that, “Christ has no body now on earth but yours; no hands but yours; no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which the compassion of Christ must look out on the world. Yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good. Yours are the hands with which He is to bless His people.” We are, in every way shape and form, the Body of Christ. Our bodies are not just one single part but many. We are many, and we are all uniquely different. Yet each in his or her own way contributes significantly to the whole. We are all baptized in one spirit, and there are no distinctions that separate us. We must keep our eyes focused on the greater whole and not get distracted or consumed with particular parts. Everything and everyone must work together for the praise and glory of God.

VIVIR LA LITURGIA ~ INSPIRACIÓN DE LA SEMANA
Santa Teresa de Jesús nos dejó estas palabras: “Cristo no tiene cuerpo, sino el tuyo; no tiene manos o pies en la tierra, sino los tuyos; tuyos son los ojos con los que ve; la compasión en este mundo; tuyos son los pies con los que camina para hacer l bien; tuyas son las manos, con el que bendice todo el mundo.” Nosotros somos, en toda manera y forma, el Cuerpo de Cristo. Nuestros cuerpos no son solo una parte, sino muchas. Somos muchos y todos somos únicamente diferentes. Cada individuo, de su propia manera, contribuye algo especial. Todos estamos bautizados en un espíritu, y no hay nada que nos separe. Debemos enfocarnos en la totalidad y no distraernos con los detalles particulares. Todo y todos debemos trabajar juntos para la alabanza y gloria de Dios.
