thought for today

God does not have hands, we do. Our hands are God’s. It is up to us what God will see and hear, up to us, what God will do. Humanity is the organ of consciousness of the universe ... Without our eyes the Holy One of Being would be blind.

- Lawrence Kushner

That line really hits me where I live in a Eucharistic sense. My habit is not to look at the face of who is giving me the Sacrament, but his/her hands. I like to envision that, for that little moment, they ARE the hands of God!

(You can think about that next time you are passing out wafers.)
