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.

Our Father.

Lectionary: 225
St. Margaret of Cortona

Isaiah tells us today that God's word is not empty, but achieves what it was sent to do, always. Wow. Regardless of whether you have five minute or fifty minutes to spend reading the word today, it will accomplish in you what God intended. 
One more thing: Do your kids ever come to you to find out the best way to approach their dad about something? (or maybe visa-versa?) By knowing their dad so intimately, you might know the best way to say something to really get his attention. Christ does the same for us by giving us the Lord's Prayer. Try saying this prayer slowly and intentionally with your family today. 
Prayer: Heavenly Father, let my heart be a fertile ground where your word can blossom and grow. St. Margaret, pray for me. Amen.
