Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
When we see how wretched we are we should not keep looking at ourselves, but should look on our Well-Beloved Jesus.
St. Therese of Lisieux
An awareness of our own sin can move us beyond ourselves to seek God’s mercy and compassion through Jesus Christ. Pray today to keep your eyes focused on Jesus as you express sorrow for the ways you have failed to love God wholeheartedly.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
