Take a moment to truly consider the depth of God's love for you. Breathe deeply and let that love surround you.
Allow God's love to settle within you as you pray:
Love is patient...
Love is kind...
Love is not jealous...
Repeat these lines slowly two more times
Breathe deeply and know that God is present wherever love is found.
“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?
