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.

“Most merciful mother, remind us always about the sorrows of your son, Jesus.”


Sorrowful mother, how your heart ached as you witnessed your heavenly son be put to death as a criminal. He Who is pure innocence and goodness bore the ugly disfigurement of sin. You bravely followed Him, without complaint, through each step in the way of the cross. You felt His agony. Your perfect humility and submission to God’s will gave you unfailing strength to bear the cross with love.


Holy mother, how your immaculate heart was pierced when your son’s flesh was torn and beaten for our sins. There is no greater pain than the pain you felt as you watched Him nailed to the cross; there is no greater love than the love of the Savior as He hung on the tree and said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do...Woman, behold thy son.” In His last moments of agony, He gave us the gift of a spiritual mother that leads us perfectly to Him. 


Sorrowful mother, give me the courage to imitate your holy example to make reparation for all the times I have hurt your most precious son by my sins.
