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.

Guardian angels.

Lectionary: 460, 650

Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
Guardian Angles

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”
One more thing: To remember that my children are first children of God is a sobering thought. I will have to answer to their heavenly Father for my behavior toward them. Am I always loving, kind with my words, slow to anger? Is any mom always those things? The answer is no; but with the grace of God, and help from our own angels, we can make a renewed effort each day! 
Prayer: Angel sent by God to guide me; be my light and walk beside me; be my guardian and protect me; on the paths of life direct me. Amen.
