This devotional is uniquely Catholic in that the meditation is based on the daily readings for the Mass, called the Lectionary. But you don't have to be Catholic to find a home here! Click on 'Today's reading' for the lectionary link to read the bible readings, then click the back button and spend a few minutes with the meditation. Relax! This is your time, well deserved, much needed, and holy. Let all the things you "should be doing" melt away and bask in the presence of your God who loves you!

Before we begin, let us pray,

Father, you created me and put me on earth for a purpose. Jesus, you died for me and called me to complete your work. Holy Spirit, you help me to carry out the work for which I was created and called. In your presence and name - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - I begin my meditation.

Look up.

Lectionary: 27

Moses counted the stars, and James, Peter and John looked up and saw Christ transfigured. When you look up to the sky, be reminded that your citizenship is not of this world, but in heaven. 
One more thing: Our goal is to get to heaven. Our duty is to do all we can to get our children to heaven. Jesus gives us a glimpse of what heaven looks like in the transfiguration. Take a moment today and look up at the sky with your kids. Watch the clouds and talk about what heaven might look like. 
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to keep my eyes focused on my heavenly reward. Help me to do all I can to ensure my children get to heaven. Amen.
