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.

That's not fair!

Lectionary: 228
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
Reading 2

Today's readings tell us about how God views justice. Our lives are a forward progression. We can neither coast on yesterday's good deeds, nor count on tomorrow's. Its what we do today that counts. 
One more thing: God's mercies renew each day for us. Its important to let our kids start each day with the same clean slate. 
Prayer: Father in heaven, help me to live today doing what is right and just in your eyes. Amen.
