When I look at this famous image of Mary of the Beautiful Stained Glass Window, I see both mother and son.
Jesus, May my vision be holistic enough so that when I focus on Your mother, I also see You.
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.
