This was inspired by this quote by
St. Theresa of Avila - March 28, 1515-October 4,1582
“God has no body on earth but yours....”
From your hands, a child somewhere is fed
Another desperate young father ‘saves face’,
In a world eager to judge others on unfamiliar paths
That only by God’s grace, our children have not yet trod.
From your smile a lonely soul may feel alive
And kind words thaw a frozen heart.
These are priceless gifts which all can give…
Gifts of light and love that cuts through the darkness
Like two thousand years ago, each day we can herald...
“Emmanuel”..,(God with us)!
Peace and love to every Souper and our families
