[xsl] Trying to understand XSLT processing

I have an XML file:

<SOAP:Envelope xmlns:saml="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.0:assertion" xmlns:samlp="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.0:protocol" xmlns:SOAP="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"; xmlns:wsse="http://docs.oasis-open.org/wss/2004/01/oasis-200401-wss-wssecurity-secext-1.0.xsd"; xmlns:env="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/";>
        <wsse:Security SOAP:mustUnderstand="1">
        <m:hello xmlns:m="http://services";>

and I just want to output the <SOAP:Body> to a message, so I have an XSLT that looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform";        
    <xsl:output method="xml" /> 
    <xsl:template match="/">
        <xsl:message>*****you just hit the XSLT ******</xsl:message>
        <xsl:message>*****BODY CONTENTS****[<xsl:copy-of select="."/>]</xsl:message>

However, when I execute that XSLT, I'm getting an empty nodeset for the output:

*****you just hit the XSLT ******
*****BODY CONTENTS****[]

So, I was wondering if someone can explain what I am doing wrong with that XSLT above?  Why doesn't the <xsl:copy-of> give me the <Body>?

Thanks, and sorry if this is probably a really dumb question :(...
