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.

Easter Sunday

Today is a day of celebration! Christ has died and now is risen for you! Rejoice and be glad!
One more thing: If there were ever a day for spending time with your family, today is the day! Spring is here and the lovely weather and blooming flowers remind us of a new life in the resurrected Christ. Make today a special celebration of Christ's love for you and your family. 
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for sending your Son to save me. Help me to share the joy of the resurrection with my family every day. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
