Easter is quickly approaching and in the remaining time in Lent we ask Our Lady to lead us to her Son. My friend, Julie Rodgers, made this powerful video for a talk about authentic encounter. Clips from the Passion of the Christ show the encounters of love between Mary and her Son and how the gaze of Christ has the power to change our hearts.
The video asks us “Have you experienced his gaze of love?” Going with Jesus into the desert during these 40 days is a way that we can recognize his gaze of love more strongly in our lives.
This look is stronger than any words and it can change our entire lives if we allow ourselves to be seen. The gaze of Jesus always draws us to him, moving us forward and away from our sin. When we feel close to or far from His gaze, Mary is the one who shows us the path.
Mother Teresa wrote to the Missionaries of Charity:
As we enter the fifth week of Lent, this video reminds us that we need our Mother to be able to experience the gaze of Jesus at the foot of the cross. During the last days of Lent, we need Mary to teach us His longing for our hearts and to show us the path to Calvary.
The Pope continued in his homily:
