Precious little is written about the childhood of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Much of what is written is proclaimed in the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. In Gaze Upon Jesus, the Women in the New Evangelization (WINE) offer you the opportunity to experience the incarnation of Jesus through the eyes of women who were present from the Annunciation until Jesus was found in the temple.
Six chapters each take up a different vignette, five of which make up the Joyful Mysteries. An additional chapter addresses the Flight to Egypt. Each chapter begins with "A Moment to Ponder" which introduces that vignette. The next section in the chapter, "Enter the Scripture" provides the corresponding biblical passage. The final section "In Search of..." provides encouragement on a particular virtue in order that you practice it in your life. The virtues include humility, patience, charity, reverence, courage and prudence.
Each chapter uses an image - included in an eight-page, full color insert - that allows you to practice visio divina, the ancient practice of praying wiht sacred art. Order Gaze Upon Jesus for individual or group study, at Advent or at any time of year. Either way, it will bring your gaze to where it belongs - on Christ.
