Sit in a comfortable position. Breathe deeply.
Turn your mind to Christ, our light.
Breathe deeply. As you breathe in, consider a moment when Christ has been a light in your life.
As you breathe out, consider one way you can be an example of Christ's light to others.
Allow Christ's love and light to restore peace to your soul.
And even though [the dark night] humbles persons and reveals their miseries, it does so only to exalt them.
St. John of the Cross
Jesus leads us to exaltation by way of humility – the awareness of our true self in relationship to God and others. In your prayer today, ask to accept “your miseries” and all that is revealed to you through this dark night.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
