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.

Close encounters.

Lectionary: 275
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm

"I am the bread of life." The message seems so simple, yet the gospel readings this week  are really pounding home the message. Jesus is all we need!
One more thing: The first reading shows us Saul before his conversion. I'm starting to cringe a little for him knowing a close encounter with Christ is coming soon. Try serving bread at dinner and talk with your family about how they encounter Christ each day. 
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I love you and thank you for feeding me the food of everlasting life. Help me to see that through mothering my children I am having an encounter with you every day. In your name I pray, Amen.
