A Prayer of St. Teresa of Avila- Memorial- October 15

Guided Reflection

Leader: [The leader prepares the group for guided reflection, asking them to close their eyes, be aware of their breathing and their bodies. The leader reads the following prayer while the group listens and reflects.]

Christ has no body but yours, no hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassionately on this world.
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good.
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands.
Yours are the feet.
Yours are the eyes.
You are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours, no hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes with which he looks compassionately on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.
Amen.
