PODCAST | The Gaze of Love: The Call to Follow Jesus

[ View Transcript ]

In this podcast, Fr. Eric Nicolai reminds us that praying the Way of the Cross can often be a moment of conversion for a soul that feels impelled by the realization that Jesus suffered out of love for us. It makes us want to undertake greater things in our life, and to open our heart to the call of God. He explains that, “for us to do something truly great, it must somehow be a response to God’s grace, God’s transformative love.”

After Peter betrayed Jesus, he experienced that gaze from Jesus in the courtyard and it was everything he needed to undertake the adventure of being a true apostle. A vocation is always a call to greater love and greater magnanimity. Many have launched into their vocations after experiencing the penetrating and loving gaze of Jesus in their prayer.

Have you experienced the gaze of Jesus in your life of prayer?

Take time each day to let Jesus look at you with all the tenderness and affection of His love, and you will soon discover a loving desire to do great things for Him too.
