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.
If [these souls] do have envy, it will not be vicious as before, when they were distressed that others were preferred to them and more advanced.
St. John of the Cross
As souls grow closer to God, although they continue to experience their sinful tendency toward envy, they are more aware of it, asking for God’s mercy, rather than comparing themselves to others. Let “Lord have mercy,” be your prayer today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
