Take several deep breaths. Empty your thoughts.
Let go of all that has held you back today.
Exhale all those things that make your heart heavy.
Envision yourself moving forward, lighter, more free, toward the Lord, who helps to carry all burdens.
The bride set all this perfection and preparedness before her beloved, the Son of God, with the desire that he transfer her from the spiritual marriage...in this Church Militant, to the glorious marriage of the Triumphant.
St. John of the Cross
The deep longing for God is only fully satisfied in the “glorious marriage of the Triumphant.” As you pray today, ask for patience as you wait for that final union with the Beloved.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
How long would you like to pray for?
