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.

A name above all names.
The Most Holy Name of Jesus

"Behold, the Lamb of God..."
Christmas is a time to get all cozy with baby Jesus in the manger, but I can't forget that the babe is the Prince of Peace, Lord of Lords, God Almighty, my Savior!
One more thing: I had to call upon the name of Jesus after a rough start to my day. The name of Jesus is powerful, can dispel demons, heal the sick, and transform me. Today on the feast of His most holy name, I promise to call upon him more often throughout my day - not just during the trying times, but during the joyful, quiet, and mundane ones as well. 
Prayer: Wonderful, Counselor, Almighty God, Prince of Peace, Emmanuel, Morning Star, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, Lamb of God, miserere nobis. Amen.
