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.
One word or a pleasing smile is often enough to raise up a saddened and wounded soul.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese, the saint of the little way, invites us to recognize that it is often in the small gestures of kindness that another is lifted up. As you pray today, ask for the grace to attend to the needs of others in small, ordinary ways each day.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
