Put yourself in a comfortable position. Take several deep breaths.
Repeat to yourself: Do not be afraid.
Each time you exhale let go of those things about which you are worried or afraid.
Offer these worries to God, knowing that God's love is infinite.
Allow yourself to accept God's love and grace in return.
Fix your eyes on the Crucified Christ and everything will become small for you.
St. Teresa of Avila
As you focus on Christ and the sufferings he endured because of his great love, the daily crosses you endure will “become small for you.” As you pray today, be mindful of Christ’s love for you and ask for the grace to accept the sufferings you experience today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
