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.

Sts. Peter and Paul.

Lectionary: 591
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
Reading 2
Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul

What I love about Sts. Peter and Paul is how human they were. They didn't have any special gifts that made them 'saintly'. In fact, their faults were laid open for all to see. What they had was a desire to live for Christ.
One more thing: Peter and Paul are examples of people saying 'yes' to Christ's call. They didn't have everything they needed for the journey, but Christ gave them the Holy Spirit and they fulfilled his will for their lives through obedience and love. You and I can be like them, saying 'yes' to God each day and living out the vocation to which we were called with our utmost effort.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for the example of Sts. Peter and Paul. Help me to live my vocation of motherhood with the fervor and dedication that they lived theirs. In your name I pray, Amen. Sts. Peter and Paul, pray for me.
