Said in unison:

O God Most High, our bodies are perishable, but you have sent Christ, the promise of our resurrection.  Aging limits us, disease burdens us, disabilities undermine our capacity to function.  We are frail creatures at best.  Yet we glorify these bodies; they are temples we worship.  When some threat afflicts them, we are distraught or destroyed.  We confess our idolatry.  Teach us to number our days to Christ’s glory, and forgive our vain worship of ourselves.
