Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
In the evening of life, we will be judged on love alone.
St. John of the Cross
The season of Advent provides us with the opportunity to meditate on our core beliefs and the meaning of Christ’s coming, captured so well in this quote from John. Pray today for the grace to love more deeply; and that love will be the only motivation for all that you do.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
