Are we His eyes, hands and feet?

Recently, I presented talks, a workshop, and a Q & A at a Catholic women's retreat day. I reminded the women of some poignant and very essential words from Saint Teresa of Avila that we should wholeheartedly apply to our lives.

She said:

Christ has no body now, but yours. No hands, no feet on earth, but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ looks with compassion into the world. Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.

God bless you and yours!


  1. I give my family, My hands to hold,to cook, to clean, to PRAY
    My feet to walk the talk and journey with them on the road to Holiness
    My eyes to see the beauty of Him an His creation, in one another and our world.
    My body to offer in love and in prayer through my physical sufferings and joys to labor for the salvation of our souls. Jdandrow
