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.

Listen to my voice.

Lectionary: 280
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm

"No one can take them out of my hand." Christ has claimed you! You are his and no one can change that! No matter how you are persecuted or condemned or ignored or made fun of, you still belong to Christ. You are his precious child!
One more thing: As the school year winds down, we are all getting a little tired and punchy. Carpool squabbles and playground quarrels might get a little out of hand. Even the best of friends need a break from each other. Encourage your kids to listen to Christ's voice. Remind them that no matter what, they belong to him! He will lead them to do the right thing as long as they follow his voice.
Prayer: Dear Jesus, help me to filter out all of the noise my family hears and to focus on your voice, guiding us and claiming us. We are yours! In your name I pray, Amen.
