“Christ has no body on earth but yours; no hands but yours; no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he views compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which He walks to do good. Yours are the hands through 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 on earth but yours.”
~ St. Teresa of Avila
