One of the metaphors Paul uses for the Church is the “body.” The Church is the Body of Christ. The idea being that just as the parts of the body are different but work together, so, too, there are many functions in the Church. None is necessarily more important than any other. This means that we who belong to the Body of Christ (the Church) are inter dependent on each other. We need each other; the Church needs each one of us. Do I celebrate with the whole Body of Christ?
