A person likes to remain alone in loving awareness of God, without particular considerations in interior peace and quiet and repose.
St. John of the Cross
As the soul enters deeply into contemplative prayer, the soul is led to rest in God’s embrace. As you pray today, ask for the grace to “remain alone in loving awareness of God,” in “interior peace, quiet and repose.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
