Put yourself in a comfortable position.
Consider God's unconditional love for you. Breathe deeply.
Jesus said, ''Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God. Even the hairs of your head have all been counted.''
Take a deep breath and exhale slowly as you try to imagine yourself as God sees you.
One who was in this affliction heard from the Lord: "Don't be afflicted, either they will praise me or criticize you; and in either case you gain."
St. Teresa of Avila
Our only concern is with God as the center of our being; the praise or criticism of others need not have any affect on us. As you pray today, ask for the grace of singleness of heart.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
