Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
Now I see that true charity consists of bearing with all the faults of our neighbors, in not being surprised at their weaknesses, in being edified at their least virtues.
St. Therese of Lisieux
When motivated by love, we are at ease with the reality of the human condition, both our failings and our “least virtues.” Pray today for a true acceptance of your own virtue as well as your sin.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
