Matter Matters to God

“Matter matters to God. It’s what the sacraments teach: bread and wine and water and oil and hands matter to God.”

That’s one of the better quotes in this beautiful video on the fact that matter and flesh matter to God, and why that should matter to us. Other great lines include “God cares about your nostrils” and “Our souls have fingerprints all over them.”

Check it out and let me know what you think.

One Response to “Matter Matters to God”

    Excellent. I know that, for myself, and I would assume for many others, it is relatively easy to adopt a view of the body as “dead weight,” something we are just waiting to be free from. I suppose it’s connected to some limited view of our flesh being that which wages war against the spirit. But I couldn’t agree more with what she had to say in this video. Our bodies are groaning, waiting for the day of fulfillment, not to cast off the flesh but to be further clothed, that what is mortal in us may be swallowed up by true life. (Or something along those lines).
