Built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone:
In whom all the building, being framed together, groweth up into an holy temple in the Lord.
In whom you also are built together into an habitation of God in the Spirit.
Ephesians 2:20-22
You are God’ s building.

According to the grace of God that is given to me, as a wise architect,

I have laid the foundation; and another buildeth thereon.

But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

For other foundation no man can lay, but that which is laid; which is Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 3:9-11
(...) A living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen and made honourable by God:
Be you also as living stones built up, a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
Wherefore it is said in the scripture: "Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious. And he that shall believe in him, shall not be confounded."
To you therefore that believe, he is honour: but to them that believe not, "the stone which the builders rejected, the same is made the head of the corner:"
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of scandal, to them who stumble at the word, neither do believe, whereunto also they are set.
1 Peter 2:4-8
Know you not, that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

But if any man violate the temple of God, him shall God destroy. For the temple of God is holy, which you are.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17
"On this solemnity the Word of God recalls an essential truth:"
"The temple of stones is a symbol of the living Church, the Christian community, which in their letters the Apostles Peter and Paul already understood as a ‘spiritual edifice,’ built by God with ‘living stones,’ namely, Christians themselves, upon the one foundation of Jesus Christ, who is called the ‘cornerstone.’

‘Brothers, you are God’s building,’ St. Paul wrote, and added: ‘holy is God’s temple, which you are.’

The beauty and harmony of the churches, destined to give praise to God, also draws us human beings, limited and sinful, to convert to form a "cosmos," a well-ordered structure, in intimate communion with Jesus, who is the true Saint of saints."
Pope Benedict XVI, Angelus, November 9, 2008
"This happens in a culminating way in the Eucharistic liturgy, in which the "ecclesia," that is, the community of the baptized, come together in a unified way to listen to the Word of God and nourish themselves with the Body and Blood of Christ.

From these two tables the Church of living stones is built up in truth and charity and is internally formed by the Holy Spirit transforming herself into what she receives, conforming herself more and more to the Lord Jesus Christ. She herself, if she lives in sincere and fraternal unity, in this way becomes the spiritual sacrifice pleasing to God."
Let us pray for a conversion of our hearts and for all who have gone astray: that we all may find the Church as a true Mother and that Jesus Christ may become the foundation stone and cornerstone of our lives.
