The Church is the community of people who believe in Jesus and obey His words.Jesus lives in the Church and Works through the Church to make all men share divine life.


                  We can compare the church to a human body and its organs.St.Paul,the apostle,says: "Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it" (1 Cor 12: 27).


                  United with the head,different organs in a human body fulfil their duties.All the organs perform their duties well and thus work for the growth of the body.Each organ acts according the instructions of the head.These organs contribute to the proper functioning and growth of the body, doing various tasks.Jesus is the head of the body, the Church(Eph 1:22-23).



                         "For just as the body is one and has many members,and all the members of the body,through many,are one body,So it is with Christ" (1 Cor 12: 12).

                  The members of the Church,the body of Christ, are like the organs of the body.Just as the duties of eyes,ears,hands and legs in a body are different,the mission of the members of the Church is also different.each one's mission become meaningful when we remain united with jesus,the head of the church and work in co-operation with other members.Then the body of the Church grows.

                  We need divine life to live united with Jesus fulfilling our mission and growing in fellowship and unity with our brethren.Jesus instituted the sacraments to impart this divine life.



      Jesus gives us His own divine life through the sacraments. Thus, He sanctifies,empowers and builds the Church constantly. 


                  It is through the Church that Jesus gives divine life to the world.Today Jesus gives this life through the Church.   


                 Each one of us is a living member of the church - the body of Christ.We who receive divine life through sacraments have certain missions to fulfil.Let us be united with Jesus and fulfil our duties and responsibilities.Then the life of Jesus will flow into us and through us to others.
