Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
To come near to Jesus, we must be very little. O how few are the souls who aspire to be lowly and unknown.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese understood the truth of Jesus’ teaching, that it is only in losing our life that we gain it. As you pray today, ask to be one of those souls who hear Jesus’ word and “aspire to be lowly and unknown.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
