God never asks anything from a person without giving him the strength to accomplish it.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)
Teresa Benedicta attests to the belief that God does not ask of us more than we can bear and gives us what we need to carry it. In your prayer today, express your trust in God who will always give you what you need to follow Christ faithfully.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
