I besought Jesus to draw me into the flames of His love and to unite me so closely to Himself that He might live and act in me.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese longed to be consumed by Jesus, the desire of her heart - in “the flames of His love”- so He would be her breath and life. Pray today that Jesus will unite you “closely to Himself.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
