Today we celebrate the greatest event in human history. It has become the most significant day in my life. Without this gift, we would continue to roam the earth without the knowledge of an eternal life beyond this. Through Him, we are truly alive…
Christ has no body on earth but yours,
no hands but yours,
no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
Christ’s compassion for the world is to look out;
yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good;
and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.
– Saint Teresa of Avila
Saint Teresa of Atlanta:
It happens every time: Whenever I read your blog I think “Oooo, that is exactly what I have been thinking/feeling, but Teresa communicates it so much better than I ever could”.
Yesterday I wrote and saved a draft of a blog post in which I use the metaphor of us being His hands and feet,… and today I read that you have once again beat me to it, and done it much more poetically. Nonetheless, I have already shamelessly copied and pasted your Saint Teresa quote so that my family and friends might be blessed as you have once again blessed me. Please forgive me. Grace!
Tom – it’s an honor that you would share something that I felt inspired to share with your readers! Connecting His Like-minded servants is one of His many incredible gifts to us – don’t you think?
I love watching the wonderful happenings in Rwanda from here – hope someday we can be there physically sharing in your dream…God Bless.
