Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
You are my peace, my happiness, my only love, O Jesus.
St. Therese of Lisieux
No thing or no one was more important to Therese than the love of Jesus. At the beginning of this New Year, as you reflect on the meaning of Christ’s birth for you, pray that you, too, accept God’s love in Jesus as your only priority.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
