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.

The Lord is my shepherd.

Lectionary: 535
The Chair of St. Peter

You are the shepherd of the domestic church. As such, the first reading is speaking to each and every parent. St. Peter tells us to tend to the little lambs in our midst by being examples.  How are you being an example of Lenten devotion to your family? 
One More Thing: When your family gets the gimmes, recite today's psalm. Even in the toy aisle at the super-mart, it brings everything into perspective. After all, when we have the Lord, what else do we really need?
Prayer: Dear Lord, you lead me to every good thing. Help me to always hear Your voice and follow you. St.  Peter, pray for me. Amen.
