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.

Lectionary: 253
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm

St. Catherine of Genoa

The first reading is about freedom; freedom of choice and freedom from bondage. The Jewish boys had the freedom to choose and were faithful to God despite the consequences. What appeared to result in bondage, resulted in the ultimate freedom as God rescued them from the furnace. 
One more thing: Jesus speaks of the bondage of sin. The only way to freedom is the truth in Christ's word. Continue your commitment to follow the word daily, and the truth shall set you free! 
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank you for your Word and the truth You bring to me from the Father. Help me to be faithful to your Word and to live it daily so that I will know true freedom. St. Catherine, pray for me. Amen.
