Christ has no body but yours, 
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body.

Teresa of Avila (1515–1582)

Today the volunteers spent the day helping to get everything set up at The Way and ready for the summer. While this isn't probably the most exciting service to do, they did it with enthusiasm and love. Because of all their hard work, the rest of the PVs summer will run that much smoother. Thank you to each and everyone of them!

A large part of the PV experience is community and what better way to celebrate community than to share a Thanksgiving meal together. We had turkey and all the fixings. What a nice meal!

Tonight's reflection we were asked to think about a struggle we have had this last year, as well as a joy. As people shared very personal struggles you could feel the groups acceptance of all and the comfort everyone felt with each other.
