Everything I do, I do with love, and everything I suffer, I suffer with the delight of love.
St. John of the Cross
Love motivated everything John of the Cross did; this love needs to be the basis of all that we do in our daily life, as well. In your prayer today, ask for a love that permeates every aspect of your life.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
