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.

The mouth of God.

Lectionary: 381
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
St. Oliver Plunkett

Jesus called Matthew and he got up and followed him. He was a sinner but had complete obedience. Do you ever hear Jesus calling you?
One more thing: Jesus calls us all: thin and fat, short and tall, sinner and tax collector. Just because you aren't perfect doesn't mean he isn't calling you. Imperfect people can do perfect things if they just say yes to Christ.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, Thank you for calling me to be the mother of my children, even with my shortcomings. Help me to follow you as Matthew did with full obedience. In your name I pray, Amen. St. Oliver Plunkett, pray for me.
