Christ has no body now on earth but ours;
Our hands are to be his hands,
our feet are to be his feet, our eyes are now his eyes.
Christ has no body now on earth but ours.
Christ has no voice now on earth but ours.
Our call as Christians is not only to receive the Bread of Life, but to become one, becoming love in action of Jesus for this world. Just as Jesus gives himself to us in the Eucharist, we give ourselves to others as offering and sacrifice to God. Jesus outlined His mission for each of us:

"For I was hungry and you gave me some thing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me,  I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." (Matthew 25: 35)
