Dear Lord, help me to keep my eyes on you. You are the incarnation of Divine Love. You are the expression of God’s infinite compassion. You are the visible manifestation of the Father’s holiness. You are beauty, goodness, gentleness, forgiveness, and mercy. In you all can be found. Outside of you, nothing can be found. Why should I look elsewhere or go elsewhere? You have the words of eternal life…..You are the light that shines in the darkness….You are the perfect icon of God. In and through you I can see and find my way to the Heavenly Father.
– Henri Nouwen
