Human Needs & Concerns

In the 16th century, St. Teresa of Avila said–

“Christ has no body now on earth but yours; yours are the only hands with which He can do His work. Yours are the only feet with which He can go about the world; yours are the only eyes through which His compassion can shine forth upon a troubled world. Yours are the feet with which Christ walks to do good. Yours are the hands with which Christ blesses the world.”
