Notre Dame de la Belle Verrière (12): Who Is Looking At Whom?

How wonderfully mysterious that a two-dimensional stained glass window can help me to feel God looking into the depths of who I am.Jesus's gaze in Notre Dame de la Belle Verrière by Jill K H Geoffrion

My Prayer:

Thank You, God, for the ways I feel seen and knowingly loved by You.

Scriptural Touchstones:

But Jesus looked at them and said, “For mortals it is impossible, but for God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26 (NRSV)

Invitation to Prayer:

The faces of Mary and Jesus , Notre Dame de la Belle Verrière by Jill K H Geoffrion

Imagine that God is using Jesus’ and/or Mary’s eyes to lovingly look into your soul. What are you sensing? Feeling? What prayers are emerging in your body, imagination, mind and heart? Pray them now.
