Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
As for what concerns our relations with our fellow men, the anguish in our neighbor’s soul must break all precept. All that we do is a means to an end, but love is an end in itself, because God is love.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
Pray today that love is the sole motivation for all that you do, in the spirit of Jesus, Teresa Benedicta and Pope Francis.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
