Reciprocal gaze... Thy presence is fullness of joy, 
at Thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. -Psalm 16:11

"There was a man who never passed the church without entering it.   In the morning when he went to work, and in the evening when he returned, he left his spade and pick axe at the door, and remained a long time in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.
... I asked him one time what he said to our Lord during the long visits he paid him.  Do you know what he answered? "Oh, I don't say anything to Him, Monsieur le Cure, I look at Him and He looks at me."
