St. Paul's Analogy of the Body Updated (#2)

"Just as a human body, though it is made up of many parts, is a single unit because all these parts, though many, make one body, so it is with Christ."
[1 Cor 12:12 Jerusalem Bible]


The poor cells

The bloodstream is the mechanism through which oxygen and nutrients get to the cells of the body, as well as the way that wastes are removed. However, not all cells are supplied by blood vessels. Some must rely on their neighbors to bring them food and take away their waste. These poor cells are very important.

They are the cells in the cornea and lens of the eye.

Interesting how nature imitates supernature.

And how everything works together for good. Sometimes we carry, and sometimes we are carried.
God's plan is so magnificent, we can't even begin to look at the body without being grateful, and standing in awe.

I remember the address given at my freshman Nursing mass. The top student said that if God could figure out amino acids, then He was indeed a wondrous God!
