The privileged place of the divine encounter

Please share with your network!

We cannot return to a healthy view of our own bodies until we accept that God has forever made human flesh the privileged place of the divine encounter. We have had enough of dualism, enough of the separation of body and spirit, enough over-emphasis on the body’s excesses and addictions. We must reclaim the incarnation as the beginning point of the Christian experience of God… The embodied self is the only self we have ever known. Our bodies are God’s dwelling place and even God’s temple.

Richard Rohr, OFM
