Vote

Today is the last day before a General Election, and there is probably the biggest difference between the policies of the major parties there has been for a generation.  I have already written about how to decide who to vote for, today I am encouraging people to vote tomorrow.

St Paul wrote:

Let every person be subject to the governing authorities; for there is no authority except from God

and Jesus

Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things that are God’s.

so you may think that it is out of your hands – except St Teresa wrote:

Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
compassion on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.

and one may add, Christ has no vote but yours!
