Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
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.
