Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...

You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
Remember that the dear Jesus is there in the tabernacle expressly for you alone. Remember that He is consumed with a desire to come into your heart.
St. Therese of Lisieux
As you pray today, ask to be open to the many ways God seeks to dwell with you - in the tabernacle, in the people you meet, in the Word of God and in all of creation.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
