The hand of God

The Church is like a hand: the thumb is the Pope, who gives stability, firmness and safety;
the fore finger are the missionaries, who walk along the paths indicated by the Lord: "Go and preach all over the world!"
the medium finger  are  sisters and friars, because if you raise your hands to heaven, that's what you get nearer to God by prayer;
the ring finger are the priests, that bring the faith into the homes and
receive families in the parish  to transmit their faith;
Finally the little finger are the bishops and cardinals who, if do not try to prevail with arrogance and presumption on the other fingers of the hand, may beautify and complete the hole hand.
