READING

Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, some doubted. Then Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go to all nations, teaching them everything that I taught you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

—Matthew 28

QUIET

As your day begins, spend few moments in silence and stillness. As you do, recall any words or phrases that stood out to you from the passage that you just read. Whisper them aloud if you wish.

PRAYER

• for a yearning to know God more

• for the peace of God to be experienced in our lives

• for family members and friends who struggle with belief


Evening

Today’s evening meditation is available below in audio and script formats. The audio version is also available to download for free on the player.

READING

“The very nature of God, therefore, is to seek out the deepest possible communion and friendship with every last creature on this earth.”

Catherine LaCugna

That’s God’s job description. And the only thing that can keep you out of the divine is fear or self-hatred. What would happen in your life—right now—if you fully accepted what God has created?

Suddenly, this is a very safe universe. You have nothing to be afraid of. God is for you. God is leaping toward you. God is on your side, honestly more than you are on your own. (CAC)

QUIET

As your day draws to a close, spend a few moments in silence and stillness. Let your mind take a back seat and tune in to the sensations of each part of your body. Take a deep breath in. As you exhale let the muscles of your body relax and be in a state of rest.

PRAYER

Living God your words are an invitation to experience a better way of life. Teach me that this is not a spectator sport, but a full-contact experience, joining with your Holy Spirit who is already at work in the world. Amen. (CD)
