They began with the gaze of Jesus and they spoke of how he “looked upon the women and men whom he met with love and tenderness, accompanying their steps in truth, patience and mercy as he proclaimed the demands of the Kingdom of God”.54 The Lord is also with us today, as we seek to practice and pass on the Gospel of the family.
