Thank you for the link to Bishop Barron.
We are far too prone to accepting the world’s view of the Church as a sort of club or political grouping. Once I took on an understanding of the Church as Christ’s mystical body in the Communion of Saints, everything changed for me.
Understanding this makes sense of so much that otherwise seems inexplicable, pain and suffering, the Real Presence in the Eucharist, life, death and Resurrection….
We are not merely walking this earth at a particular time and place, coming from who knows where and going who knows where. No, we are a like specific cell in Christ’s mystical body which spans time and space into eternity….
“And so, with the Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominions, and with all the hosts and Powers of heaven, we sing the hymn of your glory, as without end we proclaim: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and Earth are full of Your glory. Hosanna in the Highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the Highest. “

Simply beautiful Annemarie, thank you! And yes, this is who we are and because of this, fear is gone! Oh glorious and wonderful is the thought, that as part of Him, He cannot do without us!
Every tiny cell is necessary to the Body and each has it’s role to play.
By living His commandments He gather’s us to Himself and thus we too are completed.
Today’s Responsorial Psalm Bless the Lord O my soul! O Lord thou art very great.
