Our hope is God's Eternal Gaze

From YouCat:  If you have ever observed a baby nursing who looks for his mother's eyes as though it wanted to store up every smile forever, then you have some inkling of heaven. To be able to see God face to face - that is like one, single, never-ending moment of love. 

Thinking about Jesus gazing into His Mother's eyes ..... it is the same Jesus gazing at us lovingly in the Holy Eucharist .... it is the same gaze that God set on us since eternity and that is leading us to eternal life ...... allowing Him to gaze at us in the presence of Holy Eucharist and clothe us with His Love ....

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Cor 4:18
