The body of Christ

🕊❤🕊

Do you wish to honour the body of Christ? Do not ignore him when he is naked. Do not pay him homage in the temple clad in silk, only then to neglect him outside where he is cold and ill-clad. He who said: “This is my body” is the same who said: “You saw me hungry and you gave me no food”, and “Whatever you did to the least of my brothers you did also to me”… What good is it if the Eucharistic table is overloaded with golden chalices when your brother is dying of hunger? Start by satisfying his hunger and then what is left you may adorn the altar as well

  1. Reblogged this on Xara Nahara and commented:
    I gave a can of soup to a homeless woman who was huddled under an umbrella on the side of exit 15 on I-10 during the rainstorm this evening.

    I carry cans of soup in my car in case I see a homeless person in a desperate situation. There are a lot of those in Athens, GA right now, so I have given quite a lot of soup cans away. It’s the least I can do during a pandemic when I don’t have much myself.
