To practice them, I will choose the form which inspires me most and helps me become more available to the Risen Lord. I can have in front of me an image of Jesus or a Crucifix. It can be in a special place in my house. I can recite a particular prayer. I can use digital means, etc.
As I begin my day, I will look for a moment of silence to become aware of the presence of the Risen Lord. I ask the Father to make me available to the mission of his Son, offering him what I am and possess. This offering can be done in my own words or following a written prayer. I ask the Holy Spirit to open my heart to the needs and challenges that confront humanity and the mission of the Church, and I pray for them following the Pope’s intentions for this month.
In different moments along the day, on the road or on a stop, at home or at work, I make myself aware of being in the presence of the Lord and I renew my availability to “to labor with him in the day and watch in the night” (Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius, 93).
At the end of the day, in a moment of silence, I ask the Holy Spirit to show me in which ways the Jesus has been with me during this day, and I thank him. I ask myself in which ways have I been available to his mission, and I also thank him. I look at how I have been an obstacle to his work in me and I ask that in his mercy he may come and transform my heart. I ask him that I may live the next day close to him. Jesus gives me his blessing.
