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.
O Jesus, may I one day die of Your love.
St. Therese of Lisieux
What great love Therese had for Jesus – wanting to offer her very life to him because she loved Jesus so much. In your prayer today, examine the depth of your love for Jesus and ask yourself if you love to that extent: “…may I one day die of Your love.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
