Wonder, Gratitude, and Joy
The other plan I have in June for myself is to take a phrase from the Litany of the Sacred Heart (the one we used to say in our schools for the First Friday novena years ago) and stay with it each day. I found this very fruitful when I did it before and think the Holy Spirit is inspiring me to return to this - today is the first invocation: Sacred Heart of Jesus, to your adoration I unite myself. I am not sure what this means and have been struggling as a theologian to understand the implications of uniting myself to the adoration of Jesus, but that is fine as long as it keeps me centered on my phrase for the day. This really is a great way to pray all day so do try it with me. Tomorrow is "to your burning love, I unite myself" and much easier to stay with and desire intensely.
