Friday Photos of Faith - Helping hands

How often do we take time to thank God for the gift of our hands and what we are able to do with them.  St Teresa of Avila reminds us that God has no hands but yours ... by which He is to bless us now.

This week's Friday Photos of Faith show how some of our younger parishioners used their hands to create pictures linked to our faith.

and on the right the Keys of St Peter.
Helping to clear the stone cross
Below, one of the Holy Communion children helped to clear away the Lenten cross created by our confirmation young people.  To see the original stone cross at Easter.

Christ has no body now on earth but yours,
no hands but yours, 
no feet but yours,
yours are the eyes
through which Christ's compassion
is to look out to the earth,
yours are the feet, by which He is to go about doing good
and yours are the hands, by which He is to bless us now.
St Teresa of Avila
