Notre Dame de la Belle Verrière (4): Jesus, Mary’s Son

When I look at this famous image of Mary of the Beautiful Stained Glass Window, I see both mother and son.

My Prayer:

Jesus, May my vision be holistic enough so that when I focus on Your mother, I also see You.

Scriptural Touchstone:

On coming to the house, the Magi saw Jesus with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Matthew 2:11  (NRSV)

Invitation to Prayer:

Gaze at this image of Jesus who is gazing at you. What prayers are emerging in your mind, heart, body, and imagination? Pray them now.
