As Flynn writes in his introduction:
"So, when we gaze upon Christ ... - not only with our eyes but with our minds and hearts - we "rediscover" the Father. We recognize that it's His hand raised over us in blessing, His mercy gushing forth from the Heart of Jesus. We come to know who Christ is, who the Father is, and who we are called to be, and we are progressively transformed into living images of mercy."
