When you give a flower to the Immaculate Conception you don’t just give her one petal or maybe one leaf or perhaps just one seed. No, no. You give her the whole thing because the parts make for a whole greater than the parts.
The same is true of the Body of Christ as Saint Paul called it, the Mystical Body of Christ as Pius XII called it, with the Christ Jesus the Head of the Body and we the members of that Body of Christ. He presents us through, with and in himself to our Heavenly Father.
We belong to that which is greater than us. We are not the be all and end all. Christ Jesus is the One. He’s the only One. It is in Him that we live and move and have our being. It is in Him that we rejoice.
