Thanks to the Divine

We are the body of Christ.

When we see the oppressed and do not turn away, we are His eyes.

When we listen to the cries of others, we are His ears.

When we do the good work of the church, we are His hands.

When we march for justice, we are His feet.

When we come closer to Abba God through study and prayer, we are His mind.

When we show love and compassion, we are His heart.

We are the body of Christ.


comment: This meditation is an extension of St. Augustine's comments on the Church and came into my mind unbidden this morning. May it enlighten and inspire. Thanks be to Him.


  1. Many thanks for this

  2. I appreciate it, but the thanks go to Her for the message. I am just the messenger.
