No hands but ours

If you're wondering where God is during catastrophes like the earthquake in Haiti, remember this:
Lord Christ, You have no body on earth but ours, no hands but ours, no feet but ours. Ours are the eyes through which Your compassion must look out on the world. Ours are the feet by which You may still go about doing good. Ours are the hands with which You bless people now. Bless our minds and bodies, that we may be a blessing to others. ---Saint Teresa of Ávila
