Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
In order to contemplate Your glory, we must pass through fire. I choose for my purgatory Your burning love, O Heart of my God.
St. Therese of Lisieux
No suffering was too much for Therese as long as she remained in the “Heart of God,” where she experienced God’s “burning love.” In your prayer today, ask God to keep you close to his heart as you “pass through fire.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
