Breathe deeply and consider the ways in which you saw hope in the world today.
Pray: ''For I know well the plans I have in mind for you-oracle of the LORD-plans for your welfare and not for woe, so as to give you a future of hope.''
Breathe deeply and consider the ways in which you bring hope to the world.
Instead of becoming discouraged, I say to myself, "The good God does not inspire us with desires that could not be realized. Therefore, in spite of my lowliness, I can aspire to sanctity."
St. Therese of Lisieux
God plants within our hearts the desire to “aspire to sanctity,” to live a loving, holy life in God’s presence. In your prayer today, seek your God alone, acknowledging your lowliness and unworthiness.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
