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.
You will be consoled according to the greatness of your sorrow and affliction; the greater the suffering, the greater will be the reward.
Saint Mary Magdalen de Pazzi
Following the way of Jesus is the road of the cross leading to resurrection. As you pray today, rest in the assurance that Jesus will walk with you in your suffering and help you to remain hopeful in the promise of new life.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
