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.

Honoring women.

Lectionary: 261

Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm

Jesus appeared first to the women! What an honor He bestowed on our gender. And the women did Him homage and were His messengers. 
One more thing: Christ chose a special place for the women in His new church. They bore His message of the resurrection to the others. Christ still counts on you to do the same by teaching your family about Him!
Prayer: Thank you Jesus for the very special gift of motherhood. Help me to be your messenger and share the good news with my family. In your name I pray, Amen.
