For when we go into all the world
Christ has no body now but yours-
No hands, no feet on earth but yours.
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
With compassion 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.
- Teresa of Avila (1515–1582)
