Sit in a comfortable position. Breathe deeply.
Turn your mind to Christ, our light.
Breathe deeply. As you breathe in, consider a moment when Christ has been a light in your life.
As you breathe out, consider one way you can be an example of Christ's light to others.
Allow Christ's love and light to restore peace to your soul.
“How I love this new commandment since it gives me the assurance that Your will is to love in me all those You command me to love.!” (Story of a Soul, 221)
St. Therese of Lisieux
Following the teaching of Jesus in today’s gospel, Therese was challenged to live the ONE commandment of love of God and love of neighbor, convinced that it would bring her close to the Kingdom of God. Pray today to see where you need to be challenged by Jesus’ teaching.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
