The Body of Christ
St. Patrick - Reconcillation
ST. JOSEPH - Reconciliation
St. Margaret Mary - Reconciliation
Remember, brothers and sisters, the next time you are feeling pain and loneliness, remind yourself that we are part of the whole Body of Christ, and when one part of the Body hurts, we all feel it.
“Nourished with his Body in the Eucharist, we already belong to the Body of Christ. When we rise on the last day, we ‘also will appear with him in glory.’ In expectation of that day, the believer’s Body and soul already participate in the dignity of belonging to Christ. This dignity entails the demand that he should treat with respect his own Body, but also the Body of every other person, especially the suffering: The Body [is meant] for the Lord, and the Lord for the Body. And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?... You are not your own...So, glorify God in your body” (CCC, 1003-1004).
Therefore, you are never alone in your loneliness or brokenness. Bring your fears, loneliness, sorrows, and pain to Jesus, because he wants to sit with you in that. He wants to heal those wounds that keep you up at night. He wants to share your joys and sorrows. For when you are hurting my dear brothers and sisters, we all hurt. The whole Body of Christ hurts.
P.S. You are not alone.
With great love,
