Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
You should consider yourself as a little slave whom everyone has a right to command.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Using words difficult for us to hear, Therese challenges us to put ourselves to the service of all in response to God’s commandment to love. In your prayer today, reflect on this ‘hard saying’ and ask for what you need to learn from this for your life.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
