The Body of Christ!

19 Jun 2016 by SHRCChurch, Comments Off on The Body of Christ!

SHCongregation - 01I think we all have had the experience of being asked: “Who are you”? To which we usually answer with our proper name. And when asked “What are you” do we not often answer with our occupation, or what we do in our lives? In today’s second reading St. Paul would encourage us to include another dimension in our answers. We who are baptized are the body of Christ, and in that there are no distinctions of race, social class or gender. “Neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free person, there is not male or female.”

We are all one in Christ. Awareness of this reality needs to be part of our everyday living. We need to embrace it as part and parcel of our personal identity. As such, as both today’s first reading and the Gospel reminds us, our adherence to Christ may well trigger rejection by those contaminated by the spirit of the world. Our calling is not to win a popularity contest. Remember, one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit is courage. Use it or lose it!
