The Face of Love (A guided meditation originally created for St. Paul of the Cross Passionist Retreat Center)
Look upon the Face of Love Gaze into His eyes Open doors... to a heart yearning for you. A heart which loves each of us completely. Enter into the heart of Jesus
Rest in His loving embrace. Let the warmth of His love, His mercy Come into the depths of your soul. He will meet you there.
Loving Lord, Draw me close to you Help me to be more like you Let me lose myself in your love
Lord Jesus, You are always there waiting for me Always present… Ready to welcome me Ready to reveal yourself Love made visible through your life. Help me to leave aside my cares as I learn to follow you.
Jesus my all, Like a child... I place myself before you. Surrounded by your loving kindness, I trust in your gentleness and care. I find all delight in you, desiring only you. In your Grace, Grant that I may always love you.
Jesus, You call upon me to see your face, The Face of Love, In those around me. Help me to recognize your love in them. Help me to reach out… with your love to them.
