Christ’s Earthly Body

Christ has no body now on earth but yours,

no hands but yours,

no feet but yours,

yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion

is to look out to the earth,

yours are the feet by which He is to go about doing good

and yours are the hands by which He is to bless us now.

St Teresa of Avila

It is up to us now to do Jesus’ good deeds. I think there is a very important message in this quote about how we should be acting – are we Christ like enough? Would Jesus like what he saw through our eyes?

As we prepare for Easter, let’s try to use our God given bodies to glorify God and do as many of Jesus’ good works as we can.
