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.

The breaking of the bread.

Lectionary: 263

Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm

John Baptiste de La Salle

"he was made known to them in the breaking of the bread." Again today we find Christ's disciples unable to recognize Him resurrected among their midst. Are you ever so overwhelmed by your own life drama that you can't even find Christ? He is always there for you, ever present in the Eucharist. 
One more thing:  Try to imagine the resurrected Christ walking with you this week as He did in Emmaus. He's in the passenger seat when your are driving the kids to school and practice; sitting at the counter while you prepare the family meals; and with you while tucking the kids into bed at night. 
Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank you for walking with me this week. Help me to give to my family that which is you, just as Peter and John did. St. John Baptiste, pray for me. Amen.
