Sit straight in a chair in a comfortable position.
Breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely. Repeat three times.
Relax. Visualize yourself in God's presence.
Using the words of this mantra, say slowly:
Lord have mercy...
Repeat a few times.
Relax and breathe in deeply, hold it, and exhale completely.
You are simply trying to focus yourself to pay attention to your conversation.
Let us avoid all display; let us love our lowliness; let us be affected by nothing. Then we shall be poor in spirit and Jesus will come to seek us.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese lived the Beatitudes from the depth of her soul and invites us to do the same: “Blessed are the pure of heart; they shall see God.” Ask for this grace, as you pray today.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
