When you regarded me...

When you regarded me
Your eyes imprinted your grace in me,
In this, you loved me again,
And thus my eyes merited
To also love what you see in me...
Let us go forth together to see ourselves in Your beauty.

- ST, JOHN OF THE CROSS, Spiritual Canticle 32, 33

Prayer teaches us to rest in God's loving gaze and accept and believe that He loves what he sees in all of us.
