Answering God's Call
"If the whole body were an eye,
where would the hearing be?
If the whole body were hearing, where would the sense of smell be?
But as it is, God placed the parts, each one of them, in the body as he intended.
Now you are Christ's body, and individually parts of it."
1 Corinthians 12:17-18, 27
Written some 2,000 years ago, the words of St. Paul teach that we are joined to Christ and to one another through Baptism. Each is a member of the Body of Christ. Each has a unique role to play in building up the Church. Today, the work of Jesus continues in our priests, deacons and religious who heed the call of Christ. Pray that their courage will inspire others to consider the call to religious life.
