The Gaze from the Cross, Part 1

The Gaze from the Cross, Part 1

40 Days of Mercy Devotional – Lent 2012 – Day 16

I want to live beneath Your divine gaze, for You alone are enough for me. When I am with You, Jesus, I fear nothing, for nothing can do me harm. (306) O Blood and Water that gushes forth from the heart of the Savior as a Fount of Mercy for us, I trust in You! (309) If your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. (Matthew 6:22) My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only He will release my feet from the snare. (Psalm 25:15)

Jesus, help us to keep our eyes fixed on Mercy. May Your gaze hold ours. May we look Mercy in the eyes each morning; may Mercy be our last glance at night. Thank You that Your eyes of Mercy ever watch over us. Grant us the grace to return and sustain Your gaze from the Cross. Change us with Your Mercy.
