Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using these words of praise, pray slowly:
My God, I love you with all my heart, I praise and thank you...
Repeat several times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
Just be with God.
Let Christ crucified be enough for you, and with Him suffer and take your rest.
St. John of the Cross
In the gospels Jesus is portrayed as easing the yoke upon our shoulders and lightening our burdens. Only with this assurance can we take up our everyday cross and follow the Way he leads us – knowing that we do not carry our cross alone.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
