Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using these words of praise, pray slowly:
My God, I love you with all my heart, I praise and thank you...
Repeat several times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
Just be with God.
Through perseverance in its spiritual exercises without consolation or satisfaction, the soul practices the love of God.
St. John of the Cross
Fidelity to our spiritual exercises is truly the “practice of the love of God” – an acknowledgement of our right relationship to God - whether in “consolation or satisfaction.” In your prayer today, rest in God’s love with great trust, no matter how you ‘feel’.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
