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.

Lectionary: 355
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
St. Erasmus

"For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control."
Feeling a little weak at the knees with the thought of eight weeks of summer ahead of you? Take courage! God has called you to motherhood and he will give you the power to live your vocation fully and with confidence. 
One more thing: God is the God of the living. He is here for you in his Holy Spirit for all your joys and challenges. Call on him this summer when you are relishing family time AND when things get a little heated in the back seat during a road trip. 
Prayer: Father in heaven, bless my family as we begin our summer together. May this be a time of rest and renewal, of fun and blessing for us all. I ask this in Jesus' name, Amen. St. Erasmus, pray for me.
