I remember one of our sisters,

who had just graduated from the University. She came from a well-to-do family that lived outside of India. According to our rule, the very next day after joining our society, the postulants must go to the home for the dying destitute in Calcutta. Before this sister went, I told her, "You saw the priest during the Mass, with what love, with what dedicate care he touched the Body of Christ. Make sure you do the same thing when you get to the house, because Jesus is there in a distressing disguise." 

So she went, and after 3 hours, she came back. That girl from the university, who had seen and understood so many things, came to my room with such a beautiful smile on her face. She said, "For 3 hours I've been touching the body of Christ!" And I said, "What did you do? What happened?"

She said, "They brought a man from the street who had fallen into a drain and had been there for  some time. He was covered with maggots and dirt and wounds. And though  I found it very difficult, I cleaned him, and I knew I was touching the body of Christ!"

She knew! ( Mother Teresa, Thoughts, stories and prayers)
