Elementary:

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Let us pray:

Christ has no body but yours,

No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which He looks
Kindness 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
kindness and love on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.

This prayer of St. Teresa of Ávila reminds us that we are called to continue Jesus' work in the world  in the best ways we can.

We continue our Lenten day in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Amen.​


High School

We begin our prayer in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

In St Teresa of Avila's prayer, you and I complete the work of Jesus:

Christ's work is now our work,

Christ's hands are now our hands,

To wipe away a tear,

To build shelter for the homeless,

To collect food for the hungry,

To greet one another in peace,

Christ's feet are now our feet,

To walk along paths of justice,

To carry the load of the elderly,

To create new ways of learning when the old ways don't work

To lead the reluctant to freedom and understanding.

Christ's ears are now our ears,

To hear the cry of the poor,

To listen to the groans of a wounded planet

To appreciate words of wisdom and truth,

To attend to the longings and needs of our hearts

Christ's tongue is now our tongue,

To speak words of wisdom,

To teach one another to be more than tolerant,

To correct one another when mistakes are being made,

To speak words of forgiveness in injury.

Christ's mind is now our mind,

To remember the story of the people of God,

To imagine a world governed by the law of love,

To create works of beauty,

To pray in thanksgiving and gratitude for the gifts of creation.

We close by praying:

 Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
