Breathe deeply and simply rest.
For a moment, do not think about what you must do later today.
Simply allow yourself to gather strength from God's love, to be replenished by God's mercy, invigorated by God's very presence.
Give thanks to God for this energizing love.
You've already often heard that God espouses souls spiritually. Blessed be His mercy that wants so much to be humbled!
St. Teresa of Avila
Aware of God’s desire to draw closer to faithful souls, Teresa exclaims with gratitude and deeper longing for God’s mercy! As you pray today, be grateful for being espoused by God and allow yourself to be humbled by God’s desire for you.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
