Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
It would indeed be novel to think of having these favors from God through a path other than the one He took and the one followed by all His saints.
St. Teresa of Avila
Those who take up their cross and follow the Way of Jesus receive “these favors from God.” As you pray today, ask for courage to accept the crosses that come into your life each day.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
