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.

Lectionary: 273
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm

Jesus knew the people needed to be fed. He knew they hungered for something that earthly food could not provide. He loved us so much he died so that we might partake in the spiritual food of everlasting life. 
One more thing: It's the season of first communions. What a blessed and holy time for our young people. Watching my daughter go through her sacramental preparation reminds me not to take the Eucharist for granted. It reminds me to always work for the food that endures for eternal life. The food which Christ provides for me. 
Prayer: Father in heaven, thank you for sending your Son to save us and nourish us. Help me to pass along my belief in him to my children, so that they may accomplish your works. Bless all the first communicants this Easter season, with a fire for the Eucharist. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
