Prior to singing this song, we had a moment of reflection on this prayer. This is one I use pretty regularly, as I find it to be one of the more compelling and provocative statements one can make about the body of Christ.

God of love, help us to remember
that Christ has no body now on earth but ours,
no hands but ours, no feet but ours.
Ours are the eyes to see the needs of the world.
Ours are the hands with which to bless everyone now.
Ours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good.
— St. Teresa
