Mary's Eyes | Image: FotosearchHer eyes of mercy are surely the greatest vessel of mercy, for their gaze enables us to drink in that kindness and goodness for which we hunger with a yearning that only a look of love can satisfy. Mary’s eyes of mercy also enable us to see God’s mercy at work in human history and to find Jesus in the faces of our brothers and sisters. In Mary, we catch a glimpse of the promised land—the Kingdom of mercy established by the Lord—already present in this life beyond the exile into which sin leads us.
