Life is Grace

discoveries of grace in my messy and imperfect, but blessed, life

I found this terrific prayer on the Basilica of St. Mary’s website. It’s an especially nice one to remember this Christmas season:

Stewardship Prayer

Christ has no body now but ours, no hands but ours Here on this earth ours is the work, to serve with the joy of compassion

Christ has no hands but ours to heal the wounded world, no hands but ours to soothe all its suffering, no touch but ours to bind the broken hope of the people of God

No eyes but ours to see as Christ would see, to find the lost, to gaze with compassion; No eyes but ours to glimpse the Holy Joy of the city of God

No feet but ours to journey with the poor, to walk this world with mercy and justice Ours are the steps to build a lasting peace for the children of God

Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)
