Lent: Thursday, March 30
Posted on March 30, 2017 by Sister Carol Perry

But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them as he chose.
- I Corinthians 12:18

Practical Paul offers his homely but brilliant idea for seeing who we are, individual members of a body, only alive and functioning as part of that whole, but keenly aware that unless we all work in harmony, the entire body suffers. No part, however insignificant we might judge it, is without its place and role.

Give yourself time to see the fullness of this image, even if you think you understand it. Pray for the grace to be the member you alone are called to be.
