The thing that strikes me most about today’s picture is a sense of Mary’s single-minded, single-hearted focus on Jesus.
I wonder, on what or on whom do we ever focus so fully?
What is it about Jesus that speaks to us through the myriad competing distractions which vie for our attention?
How can we become more attentive, more focused?
As we begin to look towards the New Year, I wonder how a desire for greater focus and attentiveness might make its way into any resolutions we make.
