The Sacred Gaze (Collegeville, MN: Liturgical Press, 2014)

The Sacred Gaze is more than just an insightful overview of the relationship between healing and spirituality: it is a splendid general introduction to contemplative prayer. Susan R. Pitchford understands that contemplation is, at heart, about beholding — a revolutionary way of viewing life, love, and God. Authenticity, healing, and kenosis (emptying) are at the heart of contemplative beholding, and Pitchford explores each of these key elements in turn. With humility and grace, she explains the beauty and power of contemplative seeing, and how praying in this way can help you to become the authentic person God has created you to be.
