Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
Each day Jesus nourishes me with His adorable Body and, together with this delicate food, I hear a sweet and soft voice...that guides me, that loosens the sails of the ship of my soul...
St. Teresa of Jesus of the Andes
As you pray today, think about how the reception of the Eucharist “loosens the sails of (your) ship” to help you follow more freely the invitation of the Holy Spirit.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
