Being Mystical Builders in the Body of Christ

“Paul was entirely for Jesus in order to be, like Jesus, for everyone. ... In him, so closely bound to the person of Christ, we recognize a profound capacity to unite spiritual life and missionary activity. In him, these two dimensions support one another. And thus, we could say that he belonged to that group of 'mystical builders,' whose lives are a blend of contemplation and action, open to God and brethren, in order to carry out an effective service to the Gospel.” Benedict XVI on World Day of Consecrated Life
