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 says in the catechism that death is nothing but the separation of soul and body. Well, I have no fear of a separation that will unite me forever with the good God.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese’s frail health gave her the opportunity to pray about her hope for eternal union with “the good God.” Spend time in prayer today reflecting on your own longing for union with your Beloved.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
