Eucharistic Reflection - He Returns Our Gaze

"During Eucharistic Adoration, it is not only we who behold Christ, but it is also He who beholds us. When we adore the Blessed Sacrament, we are not just gazing at a beautiful but inert object. The contemplative mode of prayer that we learn during adoration presupposes that Christ returns our gaze."

Archbishop Joseph A. Di Noia, O.P.
