Using a ContentPicker to render page in a Widget

I have a custom widget that in an ideal world would pull in the title and content pieces from a page selected using the ContentPicker attached to the widget. I've added a ContentPicker field in to the widget, and I can select the page in the widget admin, but when it renders on the front end of the site it only does a link to the page (using that page's title.)

I've only found two incomplete answers on how to render this, and neither of them ended up working at all. Has anyone successfully done something like this?

Thank you!

Yes, you need to ask the content manager to give you display shapes for the content item. Then, you can display them.
