One God, the Father of all, who is above all and works through all and is in all. Ephesians 4:6

Paul invited us to live the vocation we have received. Be humble, kind, patient, and bear with on another in love in Christ. Let there be one body and one spirit, for God in calling us, gave the same spirit in all.

For all that we have in common through Christ and through the work of the Holy Spirit is a call to union, love and peace. Particular gifts must be placed at the service of the community in the same way as stones or bricks of a building. We are fellow citizens of the holy people of God transformed into his temple. In him the whole structure is joined and rises to be a holy temple, the spiritual sanctuary of God.

This is the Body of Christ or the Perfect Man, made up of the millions of members now forming humanity and those of the future. Some day, when all are united we will form this ” Perfect Man ” with countless members.

Jesus lived humbly until his death had been made the Head of humanity through his resurrection. He lives the whole diversity of human existence in the person of his members. With sincere love, we shall grow in every way towards him who is the head, Christ. No longer shall we be like children tossed about by the cunning of men who drag us along into error. Christ gives order and cohesion to the whole body through a network of joints performing its own function so that the body of Christ or the perfect Man as destined in him.

When all else fails, God will not.
