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.
We ought to begin each day as a new life.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)
Love of God requires us to live our daily life faithfully and to grow in all our relationships. This way, each day becomes open to “new life” and new possibilities. As you pray today, pray to be open to the newness that creates opportunity for you.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
