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.

Roof top.

Lectionary: 376
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
Blessed Raymond Lull

'Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof.' The centurion knew he didn't have a perfect home and family, but he had faith that Christ would help him anyway.
One more thing: How many of us would be ready if Jesus decided to just stop by? Would we want to tidy up our home and our relationships before he came over? The centurion shows us that Jesus' love is not dependent upon our perfection. He only wants us to come to him with our needs and ask for his help. He is always there for us, no matter the condition under our roof.
Prayer: Jesus, I welcome you into my home and family. We are full of flaws and shortcomings, but I know with your help we can become the family you want us to be. In your name I pray, Amen. Blessed Raymond Lull, pray for me.
