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.
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.
