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.

Light in the dark.

Lectionary: 614
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
Reading 2
Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord

"You will do well to be attentive to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place."
We recently came home to a dark house. The electricity went out while we were away and coming home after dark was a little unnerving. Once we located a flashlight we all gathered around it, not wanting to venture into the blackness beyond the light it cast.
One more thing: Peter was fortunate enough to view the transfiguration and get a glimpse of the glorified Christ. To him, that vision and the message of Christ's salvation was his light in the 'dark' place of earthly life. He tells us it should be ours too, a light of focus and hope!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I look forward to the day I see you in your glory at the right hand of God! Help me to stay focused on you as I find my way through the vocation of motherhood to which you have called me. In your precious name I pray, Amen.
