St. Teresa of Avila
Spread the love

 

As I prepared to write the readings for this last week, I am sitting at my desk realizing it will need to be cleaned out by tomorrow.  The movers are coming to take it to the house.  As many of you know, underneath the glass on top I have a multitude of pictures and quotes shared with me during the years.  So, this week, I share with you quotes and writings that have meant a great deal to me that I have placed here since we moved to Carthage.

Christ Has No Body Teresa of Avila (1515–1582)

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.
