“Jesus looked at him and said, ‘You are Simon son of John; you are to be called Cephas’ — which means Rock.” (J 1:42).
When I pray looking at Him hidden in the Blessed Sacrament, I like to think that He is also looking at me. What does He see in me? My sins, my limitations and shortcomings – or…?
Maybe He does for all of us what He did for Saint Peter: “you are to be called”…He has a new name for me, the name which will cover all the levels of my service.
Oh, how good it is to remain under the gaze of the Lord for a some time. Let Him look at you as often as possible. Maybe sometimes He will say something, but even if it is only His loving gaze at you, it is more than you can imagine. No one can look at you with such a great love.
