good reasons to watch TV

We had the chance to watch Law and Order: SVU a week and a half ago and were surprised and pleased to see that they were drawing attention to a real and serious crisis in Africa. Peter wrote about it in a special Prayerlink, and I want to share it with as many people as possible.

The world can be an ugly place. Most of the time we in the US can ignore much of the ugliness if we so choose, but I believe we need to face it head on and take it seriously. Jesus certainly would have.

Christ has no body on earth but yours,
no hands but yours,
no feet but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
Christ's compassion for the world is to look out;
yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good;
and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.

(Theresa of Avila)
