Hidden From View

Exalting HolinessThe outer visible shell of the Mystical Body often deceived us as to the complex nature that lay hidden inside. We struggled to understand how God planted Christ's personal body within an individual like a hidden spark when Jesus became that person's Lord and Savior.

Transforming Our Attitudes

ChaliceWe knew it was true by the transformation of that person's attitude and life but we failed to appreciate the amazing and complex work of God's Holy Spirit within. The agent, the God-essence that did the transforming, was hidden beneath the skin, deep within the persona, quietly enlightening the heart and the mind. At Holy Communion, the sacramental bread and wine similarly disguise Christ's body in a way we cannot even begin to comprehend. Across the globe, invisible ties bound together Christians of all nations, colors, and languages in the "Body of Christ Worldwide." In Heaven, beyond the furthermost aspect of the created universe, the triumphal no-longer-seen and hidden Universal Body worships in unnumbered waves around the glistening throne of God.✞
