Rejoice to Be a Member of the Mystical Body of Christ

``I am the vine, you are the branches.''

-- Jn15,5

I am the vine; you the branches he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit for without me you can do nothing.

If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask whatever you will, and it shall be done unto you.

Jo 15,5 - 7

Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness, and patience, and longsuffering? Knowest thou not, that the benignity of God leadeth thee to penance?

But according to thy hardness and impenitent heart, thou treasurest up to thyself wrath, against the day of wrath, and revelation of the just judgment of God.

Rom 2,4 - 5

For as the body is one, and hath many members; and all the members of the body, whereas they are many, yet are one body, so also is Christ.

And if one member suffer any thing, all the members suffer with it; or if one member glory, all the members rejoice with it.

1Cor 12,12 - 26

With all humility and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity.

Careful to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

One body and one Spirit; as you are called in one hope of your calling.

One Lord, one faith, one baptism.

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all.

Eph 4,2 - 3
