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.

It's up to you.

Lectionary: 281
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm

Jesus and God are a package deal. He tells us in the gospel that  you can't separate the two. By knowing Christ, we know God. The corollary to that is you can't know God without knowing Jesus. He sends out his message, but acting on it is up to you.
One more thing: The early church was led by the Spirit. They spread Christ's light throughout the world. What are you and your family doing to be a light in the darkness to others? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! 
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for being the light of my world. Help me to reflect that light to others, especially my children. In your name I pray, Amen.
