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.
Insofar as individuals are purged of their sensory affections and appetites, they obtain liberty of spirit in which they acquire the twelve fruits of the Holy Spirit.
St. John of the Cross
As you pray today, ask for the grace to be “purged of sensory affections and appetites” that will set you free and gift you with the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
