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.
I do not wish to be troubled with passing things. My Beloved will take the place of all these. I wish to walk in the groves of His love, where no one can intrude.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Profound experience of her Beloved led Therese to desire solitude where she could commune alone with him. Spend time with your Beloved in prayer today, “where no one can intrude.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
