We are the body of Christ. We join this body by baptism and become one in the body of Jesus Christ. No part of this body is better than the other and no part is useless; we are dependent on one another. Each of us has been blessed with a particular set of gifts. No one else has the exact same gifts we do. We are unique not only in our physical appearance but in the gifts of the Holy Spirit we have within us. Everyone has immense value. Every single person counts.
