Put yourself in a comfortable position that will allow you to concentrate and feel calm. Breathe in deeply, hold it, exhale completely. Repeat three times. Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using Psalm 46:10, say slowly:
Be still and know that I am God
Be still and know that I am
Be still and know
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it and exhale completely.
You are trying your best just to be with God.
For perfection...does not consist in spiritual delights but in greater love and in deeds done with greater justice and truth.
St. Teresa of Avila
Those who seek to be spiritually ‘perfect’, are called to seek a greater depth of love, expressed in fruitful action. As you pray today, ask for the grace to love God with deeds done in the name of “justice and truth.”
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
