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.

Something greater.

Lectionary: 226

Jonah preached to the Ninevites and they immediately repented. So when Jesus comes to earth, He is astounded that people will not repent. All that is needed to obtain God's mercy is to have a contrite and humble heart. 
One more thing: We all mess up. Sometimes, really big! When our kids make mistakes, especially ones that are hurtful, it may be hard to forgive them. God calls us as moms to be like Him and show unending compassion and forgiveness to our children. 
Prayer: Dear Lord,  I am truly sorry for the times I have sinned against you. Thank you for your mercy and forgiveness. Help me to show that same compassion to my family. Amen.
