Intro to Meditation

  • Remember that the point of meditation is just to be with God for some moments.

  • Remember that the effort He sees you make is the most important part.

  • Remember that at the end of the day - the meditation is just thinking about God.

  • Start every meditation with an image in your mind that is most effective for you in seeing God's goodness or beauty. It could be Christ on the Cross, Our Lady in a garden, a favorite painting of yours, a beautiful sunset or the stars. Anything.

  • Whenever you're distracted, come back to that image to refocus yourself.

  • You don't have to think of all the points of the meditation. If you're really into one point, stay on it. If not, move on to the next.

  • Follow the suggested times depending on your experience. Don't stop trying until the timer stops. That is so important. 

First starting out - 5 minutes

DAILY MEDITATION

PATIENCE

My God, I am so impulsive.  I am quick to complain, quick to judge, quick to lose my temper when things aren’t going my way.  I am so easily discouraged when I fall, so easily angered with myself in my shortcomings.  My patience is worn thin with temptation and trial.  Why is this virtue so hard to perfect?  

My child, you must not complain.  Everything that happens to you is in accordance to My plan for your life.  You must expect to suffer in this life, for the absence of suffering is only for Heaven.  It is time to tend to the battle within.  You may not have another day to fight, so do not delay.  Find gratitude for the time to turn your will to Me, and do not be discouraged.  Do not let your temptations that I allow make you fall into sin, and you will find great merit in them.  

My God, in denying my own inclinations and resisting temptation, I find a cross.  My soul is assailed and tired, but I will get up and fight.  I will pray, I will make sacrifices for your glory alone, and I will strive to think of you always.  I will embrace my cross in the footsteps of my Savior.  What better example do I have?  How dare I complain when I have You, my God, who died for me?  I will earn my patience through imitating You in my daily battles, my Lord and my God!
