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: 668
Reading 1
Responsorial Psalm
Reading 2
Feast of All Souls

"Hope does not disappoint."
One more thing: Our Christian life relies on hope. Our hope is that we will one day reside with Jesus in a place of peace and complete love. St. Paul assures us that hope does not disappoint. Jesus died for each of us and his promises are for us all. He will raise us up on the last day and we will rest in the hands of God!
Prayer: Father in heaven, help me to live a life of hope. Help me to let my hope in spending eternity with you shine forth from everything I do. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. All the holy men and women, pray for me.
