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.

Loving the unloveable.

Lectionary: 366
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
Servant of God, Orlando Catanii

"For he makes his sun rise on the bad and the good, and causes rain to fall on the just and the unjust." God shown no partiality among us. He loves us all. Can we imitate him? 
One more thing:Some folks are just unloveable. Some may even live in your house! A surly teen or cranky toddler can get the best of us. But God loves each of us no matter what. Our challenge as moms is to completely love our kids always, no matter what response we get from them. 
Prayer: Dear God, help me to love those in my life who are most difficult to love. Thank you for the model you give me in your son Jesus. In his name I pray, Amen. Servant of God, Orlando, pray for me.
