The soul hungers for God, and nothing but God can satiate it - Daily Bible Reflections August 26,2015


THE INCORRUPTIBLES
 
“You are like whitewashed tombs, which appear beautiful on the outside, but inside are full of dead men’s bones and every kind of filth.” – Matthew 23:27
 
       What do Sts. John Mary Vianney, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, Francis Xavier, Rose of Lima, Bernadette of Lourdes and Therese of the Child Jesus have in common other than living lives of simplicity, honesty, unselfishness and total dedication to Jesus? Well, they are just some of the incorruptible saints whose remains phenomenally defy decay and smell sweet without embalming.
       They look peacefully asleep even if they’ve been dead for decades, even centuries. The lifestyles of these saints, when they were alive, exemplified deep devotion to Jesus, intense piety and kindness.
       The purity of their lives has manifested in their physical bodies. For them, no whitewashed tombs are necessary. Although enshrined in glass cases, they bring inspiration to devotees, grant miraculous healing to those who venerate, and teach us to live lives of significance.
       C. S. Lewis said, “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” Truly, we are spiritual beings in a physical body. Leo Villarico (leovrico@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: “The soul hungers for God, and nothing but God can satiate it. Therefore He came to dwell on earth and assumed a Body in order that this Body might become the Food of our souls.” (St. John Mary Vianney)
 
May I seek only You, Jesus, so others will see You in me and I will see You in them.
 
St. Joseph Calasanz, pray for us.
