Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using these words of praise, pray slowly:
My God, I love you with all my heart, I praise and thank you...
Repeat several times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
Just be with God.
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.
