Begin with simple awareness that you are, that you exist, here and now.
Sense your own being, and rest in it.
As you become fully aware of your being, realize that God is your being.
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply three times and rest in the awareness of his being, your shared being.
If I go to purgatory, I will walk in the midst of the flames, like the three Hebrew children in the furnace, singing the canticle of love.
St. Therese of Lisieux
Therese’s love of God was so deep that no suffering was too much for her. In your prayer today, ask for that same depth of love that is willing to accept whatever comes into your life each day.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
