A spirit in distress and solicitude for God's love is a sacrifice most pleasing to God.
St. John of the Cross
The person who is singly focused on God’s love and sees all suffering in light of that love is “most pleasing to God.” Pray today to keep your eyes on one goal alone – “solicitude for God’s love,” even in the face of distress and difficulties.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
