Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
It is necessary that your foundation consist of more than prayer and contemplation. If you do not strive for the virtues and practice them, you will always be dwarfs.
St. Teresa of Avila
Without the practice of the virtues, your growth in the spiritual life will be stunted. Pray today for the grace to integrate the living out of the virtues with your prayer life.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
