The Physicality of Spirituality

“Meanwhile, nothing we do is meant to be ‘merely’ physical or ‘purely’ spiritual. Every act has the potential or uniting the physical and the spiritual – not only receiving communion or making the sign of the cross or kissing an icon, but also shopping, house cleaning, playing a game, washing the dishes, or making love. Even our most intangible thoughts and daydreams occur mysteriously in our tangible flesh.” (Jim Forest, The Road to Emmaus: Pilgrimage As a Way of Life, p 7)
