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.
We are not bound to be justices of peace but we are bound to be angels of peace.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese invites us to leave judgments to God alone and rather be messengers of peace to all that are experiencing conflict or divisions. In your prayer today, ask for the gift of peace within your heart and among all those to whom you are sent.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
