Put yourself in a comfortable position.
Consider God's unconditional love for you. Breathe deeply.
Jesus said, ''Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God. Even the hairs of your head have all been counted.''
Take a deep breath and exhale slowly as you try to imagine yourself as God sees you.
[God] leaves the intellect in darkness; the will in aridity; the memory in emptiness; and the affections in supreme affliction, bitterness, and anguish, by depriving the soul of the feelings and satisfaction it previously obtained from spiritual blessings.
St. John of the Cross
As you pray today, place your trust in God who alone can bring you solace in the midst of your sufferings.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
