A quote from St. Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153):
“Love is fully sufficient to itself, when it enters the heart, it absorbs all other feelings. The SOUL who loves, loves and knows nothing more.”
Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which He looks with
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.
I pray for all of us:
Most Holy Trinity, You have invited each of us share in Your glorious life. You invite us to share in the unity with you!. Please purify each of us of every selfish desire and fill us with a desire only for You. May this union with You perfectly fulfill us and enable us to obtain true unity with others. JESUS, WE TRUST IN YOU! Jesus, I trust in You!
~Deacon John McKaig
