        There is a story told about a group of monks who were having great difficulties getting along with each other in their community. There was petty jealousy, fighting and backstabbing. The head of the community spoke wearily of these problems with the local, wise rabbi.

            The rabbi told the head monk, “I have important news to tell you. The Messiah is in your mist. Tell your community this message.” The head monk ran to the monastery to tell his community. “The Messiah is among us,” he said, “though I do not know who He is.”

            “Is it Brother James,” thought Brother Peter. “Maybe it is Brother John, or even Brother Lawrence.” Each of the brothers thought the same. From then on the atmosphere of the community was changed for each monk, not wanting to offend another monk lest that one be the Messiah, treated the others as if that monk was the Messiah. Throughout the countryside, the community of monks became known as men of great love and hospitality.

            We all live in our communities: our family, co-workers, churches and all of us have been both the givers and receivers of anger, jealousy and backstabbing. But think what a wonderful world it would be if all of us: young and old, rich and poor, male and female, treated each other as if he or she was the Messiah. Think what a wonderful thing it would be if our community was known throughout the countryside as one of love and hospitality. All it takes is you!


There is a huge stone statue of Jesus Christ which stands on a local Catholic parish in California. The statue was of Jesus standing with his arms outstretched.  One night vandals came and broke off both hands of the statue. The parish was understandably upset and outraged. A discussion then arose about what to do with the vandalized statue:  should the parish buy a new statue, repair the current statue, etc.

An interesting proposition was brought forth.  Rather than repair the statue, the parish decided to leave the statue alone, with the hands of Jesus still broken off.  But the parish also decided to place a large sign in front of the statue which read: “I have no hands now but yours. Will you help me?”

God loves us through other people and each day we have countless opportunities to be the hands of God which console people, the lips of God which speak words of hope and peace to people, the arms of God which lovingly embrace people.

There is no lack of people who need God’s touch; unfortunately, too often there is a lack of people willing to allow God to work through them to touch people in need. The question we all need to ask ourselves is this: Am I willing to be the hands of God?  Am I willing to work, to love and to care for others through God’s power?
