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.

Crossing the desert.

Lectionary: 233

The readings today remind us that those who turn away from the Lord are like a barren bush in the desert. The thing that keeps us nourished is the Word of God. 
One more thing: Keep yourself fed and watered by spending time with the Lord in His word, and surrounding yourself with like-minded people. Have a friend over for coffee and encourage one another. You will feel like a tree planted near a stream: freshly watered and blossoming. 
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to recognize Lazarus at my door and act to relieve his suffering. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
