QUOTE…

.

“I ask you: How do you abide in the presence of the Lord?

When you visit the Lord, when you look at the tabernacle, what do you do? Without speaking…

.

‘But I speak, I talk, I think, I meditate, I listen…’

Very good! But do you let yourself be looked at by the Lord?

.

Letting ourselves be gazed upon by the Lord.

He looks at us

and this is itself a way of praying.

.

Do you [let] yourselves be gazed upon by the Lord?

But how do you do this?

You look at the tabernacle and you let yourselves be looked at…it is simple!

.

‘It is a bit boring, I fall asleep.’

Fall asleep then, sleep! He is still looking at you.

But know for sure that He is looking at you!”

.

– Pope Francis
