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.
I believe that, since our nature is bad, we will not reach perfection in the love of neighbor if that love doesn't rise from love of God as its root.
St. Teresa of Avila
True love of neighbor is grounded in the love of God, who continually purifies our love. As you pray today, ask that you learn how to root your heart in God’s love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
