Humans Not Angels
Running, sleeping, healing, helping, hugging, speaking, we experience them all through our body. So much is said about the body: having the best body, how to make your body look better etc etc. Living as humans not angels, our body is truly an integral part of who we are.
St. Paul speaks of our bodies as something precious and sacred, “a temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives within you”. This section explores and discusses various “bodily” experiences – food, illness, sports and fitness, leisure, addictions, etc. yet believing that our body, heart, mind and spirit are inseparable.
