The Body of Christ... and The Body of Christ
Yet procession or not, regardless of where we find ourselves, it bears remembering that the exhortation of Augustine -- given a millennium before this feast was instituted -- still applies equally all around:
"Behold what you are: become what you receive."
And in a time when the bruises and brokenness of this Body are painfully clear -- and, all too often, inflicted by one of its parts on another -- may the lot of us know the grace to live those words a little better tomorrow than we did yesterday.
"Behold what you are: become what you receive." And to all the rest who comprise That, church, a blessed and beautiful Sunday.
