“For God, to gaze at is to love.”

—St. John of the Cross, Spiritual Canticle (B) St. 31, no. 8

My husband Bobby Angel (Cardinal Jean-Marie Lustiger Fellow of Parish Life at Word on Fire Institute) and I have been very late to the party in watching The Chosen series on the life of Jesus and his followers, but we’ve been enjoying it immensely. There have been quite a few times in the series when actor Jonathan Roumie portrays the loving gaze of Christ profoundly, but one such moment triggered in me a flood of memories, taking me back nineteen years to my own conversion when I first experienced that gaze—what I call the “healing gaze of love.”

Praise the Lord
