Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
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.
How long would you like to pray for?
