We Are Ourselves Nothing

This is mouthful to digest and ponder and it is a quote from Pope Benedict's Homily for the dedication of the Church of the Holy Family 'Sagrada Familia' in Barcelona Spain yesterday.

Read his homily online
"Let each man take care how he builds. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ" (1 Cor 3:10-11).

The Church of herself is nothing; she is called to be the sign and instrument of Christ, in pure docility to his authority and in total service to his mandate. The one Christ is the foundation of the one Church. He is the rock on which our faith is built.

Building on this faith, let us strive together to show the world the face of God who is love and the only one who can respond to our yearning for fulfilment.

(We are nothing without Christ)
(His mouthpiece)
(Total effacement)
(One One One)
(The faith of Christ)
(If indeed it will save a few)

I think I get the spiritual connection at least I hope so .

"Do you not know that you are God's temple?... God's temple is holy, and you are that temple" (1 Cor 3:16-17).
