He was honoured and glorified by God the Father, when the Sublime Glory itself spoke to him and said, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved; he enjoys my favour.’ We heard this ourselves, spoken from heaven, when we were with him on the holy mountain.

Healing Troubled Hearts - Holiday Self-care Tips


Start Each New Day with a Meditation or Prayer


During this time of change or loss, waking up in the morning can be the hardest part of your day.  Awakening means confronting anew the realization of this change.

Starting off each day with tears, a heavy heart or other emotions such as anxiety and anger is so draining.  Yet, it may be a necessary part of your grief journey—however, know this won’t last, especially as you take an active part in your healing.

As time goes on, you may begin to have the power to set the tone for the day by praying or meditating.

If you can’t do this yet, don’t beat yourself up—opening our hearts to the Lord when they are already bruised and tattered can be challenging.  It is a worthy effort, however, and ultimately will bring relief and healing—just be very gentle.

When you wake up, stretch before getting out of bed.  Feel the blood coursing through your body.  Listen to the hum of your consciousness.

Repeat a simple praise or prayer to yourself:  “Today I will live and love fully.  Today I will experience gratitude.”  “Thank you for this day, God.”  Or as simple as uplifting words:  Joy, Peace, Gratitude, Love, Wisdom, Letting Go, Grace, Hope.  Any words such as these can be repeated during those times when a sense of helplessness or hopelessness overwhelms us.

Repeat these words as a litany of prayer and thanksgiving.

Notice the words that do uplift, and make special note of them.

Put yourself, your family and your loved one on a prayer list.

Have a Mass celebrated for you and your family—this will allow the entire congregation to stand with you in prayer, support and love.


Today:  Bow your head right now and say a silent prayer.  If you are out of practice, don’t worry:  just let your thoughts flow naturally.  Our Lord wants to walk with you during this time of change and loss.
