Growing Closer Dec 27, 1999
Eyes on Jesus is a wonderful book, especially for those looking to deepen their sense of spirituality and relationship with Jesus. The meditations following each Bible passage depict the experiences and miracles of Jesus in a way that allows the reader to relate and enter into the experience themselves. When I pick up the book and read a section, I have a greater sense of the humanity of Jesus, while at the same time feeling more amazed at his words and works. Through the meditations I have a clearer sense of Jesus' mission, a mission which I am then able to contemplate in relation to my own life. While Eyes on Jesus challenges me to answer Jesus' call (a very exciting feeling), it also leaves me with a sense of peace. I am left feeling the strength of Jesus and the power of faith. This is a book I would highly reccomend to anyone, but especially to those looking to grow closer and develop a personal relationship with Jesus.
Finding Peace Dec 15, 1999
Michael Kennedy's Eyes on Jesus is a wonderful way to meditate on and contemplate about everyday struggles and joys. I have used this book in private and on retreats. The best part about it is that his words and reflections on the Gospel passages really bring you into the scene. The Gospels are immediate because you are there, you are taking part, you are the one Jesus is talking to. I have never felt "a part of the Gospel". In fact, the readings were always very distant and disconnected from my life. Eyes on Jesus, has allowed me to connect with Jesus, the Gospels, and my inner self through its creative imagery and poetic nature. Thank you, Father Kennedy.
