Musings…

Dear Blog,

I went to Church today and for the first time in weeks, I actually came home with something. The thing is I have been feeling so disconnected lately that attending service became a chore. But I prepared for today. I spent a good part of my evening yesterday praying that I make it to church and ignore how boring (sorry about that) service can be and just listen to the priest and I did and I am super proud of myself.

So, what I came away with is more like a prayer. I decided to post it here to signify my commitment to get somewhere with myself. This is not me being self-righteous, it’s just an acknowledgment that everything in life starts with a step. Either a step backwards or forward. Either way i’m hoping this would be a step forward.

So here it goes….

Christ has no body but yours,

No hands, no feet on earth but yours.

Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassion on the 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…Teresa of Avila (1515-1582).

I guess it says it all

….pax tecum
