A Holy Pause

Christine Valters Paintner, Ph.D., described as a Benedictine Oblate and online Abbess offers this practice for "taking time":

I had some sabbatical time this summer to be away from calendars and email demands. I set up an auto-responder with the subject line, "Holy Pause." I had several people comment how much they appreciated those words as a reminder that they had the choice to take their own holy pause. Give yourself to several small holy pauses during the day and see what you notice. Consider a longer one for a day or more.
