Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
You know well that my martyrdom is Your love, O Sacred Heart of Jesus.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese speaks of “passing through the fires” (martyrdom) here on earth so she can be purified to meet the Sacred Heart of Jesus face to face. As you pray today, ask for the fire of God’s love to purify you and prepare you to live in Jesus’ love.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
