Today’s Reading

Second Sunday of Lent

Mark 9:2-10

Today's gospel in the account of the Transfiguration. Jesus is transfigured before the eyes of Peter, James, and John. His glory is manifested to them in a way no one else sees. They also witness Moses and Elijah speaking with Jesus.
This revelation was not only a great privilege for the three apostles. It was a burden. What did this mean? What were they witnessing? What should they do with this privilege?
Again, Jesus helps. He instructs them to tell no one what they saw. Like Mary, they are left to ponder this in their hearts. They are given time to witness more of Who Jesus is and What His ministry is before they must process this important event.

About Us


We could find no better way to describe the purpose of Daily Beatitude than the Prologue of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Paragraph 1:

God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life.


We are called to live in beatitude. This contemplation is one designed to help us incorporate the beatitudes into our day. This work is not one of absolutes. It is just one way to incorporate the countenance of Jesus into each day. It is not the only way. View our rationale.

Each day a different beatitude is presented with several points of focus that provide meditation. An additional reading is included daily related to the beatitude or one of the points of focus. All readings are archived for your convenience.
