Incarnate

The Holy Father recently tweeted that Christians are witnesses, not to a theory, but to a person, Jesus Christ, the risen savior of all. It struck me that this incarnate nature is necessarily shared by his body, the Church. Her members must participate in the life, the mundane and ordinary days and nights of that bodily community.

Jesus Christ is not a theory. He is a man. His Church is not a vague grouping of Christians with shared ideals. It is the Body of Christ, a household, a family, and we are its members, and we have a mission.

Catholics, wake up!
