land of the living

Brothers and sister: None of us lives for oneself, and no one dies for oneself. For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord; so then whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.

Romans 14: 7-9

For life I choose thee now,

And not one blush will start.

Triumph of the Cross, St. Louis de Montfort – Stanza XXIX

Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ?

1 Corinthians 6:15

“Christ used the flesh and blood of Mary for his life on earth, the Word of love was uttered in her heartbeat. Christ used his own body to utter his love on earth; his perfectly real body, with bone and sinew and blood and tears; Christ uses our bodies to express his love on earth, our humanity.
