May my Jesus always lead me by the way of the Cross. And then my soul will take flight where it can encounter the air that gives life and where there is repose.
St. Teresa of Jesus of the Andes
Living the way of the Cross leads to a letting go of all that keeps us bound; we are freed to “take flight” and experience the fresh air. Pray today for the courage to persevere along this Way of Jesus.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
