Commentary on the Gospel of
We cannot generate this kind of morality out of our own unaided resources. It goes beyond our individual capacity. But living by Christian morality is not a lonely struggle: we have a deep awareness that we are part of one another and joined with Christ. We do not face God in lonely solitude and depending on our own resources alone. Our eyes, our ears, our hands – all are parts of the body – are different; yet they share the one life of the body. Likewise we are all, though different, members of Christ’s body; the love in him is the love in us.
