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.

Palm Sunday.

Lectionary: 38
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
Reading 2

Palm Sunday

"The Lord God is my help," even in times of utter despair, like Jesus must have felt after he fell. When others ridicule you or mock you, especially for your efforts to raise a holy family, God is there. 
One more thing: Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, a time of great blessings. Read the gospel daily with your family and say the stations of the cross with your children this week. Try saying the stations outside with your kids to keep them engaged. As you walk through the yard or park, stop at each tree or other landmark and reflect on a new station.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for giving your life for me so that I may be with you forever in heaven. Help me to stay focused on your sacrifice this week, and to make this week truly holy for my family. In your name I pray, Amen.
