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.
They should remember that pacification of the soul (making it calm and peaceful, inactive and desireless) is not a small accomplishment.
St. John of the Cross
The call to be little and childlike is to recognize one’s total dependence on God, as young children expect and trust all their needs to be fulfilled by their parents. As you pray today, rest in the arms of your heavenly Father.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
