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.
The dark night with its aridities and voids is the means to the knowledge of God and self.
St. John of the Cross
Only when we are emptied of all that is not of God, can we be filled with God’s Spirit who transforms us into our truest self, drawing us closer to our Beloved. In your prayer today ask for your empty spaces to be filled by God alone.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
