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.

Peace be with you.

Lectionary: 264

Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm

Jesus keeps popping up when the disciples least expect Him. No wonder they thought He was a ghost. As they begin to understand the scriptures and the reality of a resurrected Christ, they gain confidence to preach and heal in His name. 
One more thing: This week's readings have been about seeing the resurrected Christ. Where and when do you see Christ? Have you imagined Him walking with you this week? Do you find the more you look for Him the more He seems to 'pop up' in your life just when you need him? Feel free to share in the comment section below. 
Prayer: Lord Jesus, the disciples saw you clearly after your resurrection. Help me to seek and find you alive in my daily walk as a mom. In your name I pray, Amen.
