Sit in a comfortable position. Breathe deeply.
Turn your mind to Christ, our light.
Breathe deeply. As you breathe in, consider a moment when Christ has been a light in your life.
As you breathe out, consider one way you can be an example of Christ's light to others.
Allow Christ's love and light to restore peace to your soul.
A spirit in distress and solicitude for God's love is a sacrifice most pleasing to God.
St. John of the Cross
The sacrifice that is “most pleasing to God,” is a contrite spirit - a soul that longs to be purified and in closer intimacy with God. In your prayer today, long for that “solicitude for God’s love” that is a sign of sincere seeking.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
