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.
In the dryness and emptiness of this night of the appetite, a person also procures spiritual humility, that virtue opposed to the first capital vice, spiritual pride.
St. John of the Cross
John encourages those souls who may be discouraged by their experience of “dryness and emptiness” by teaching them that they are learning humility. Pray today for a true awareness of your powerlessness.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
