The Holy Daring the Pharisees Lacked

O Lord, how true that all harm comes to us from not keeping our eyes fixed on you; if we were to look at nothing else but the way, we would soon arrive. But we meet with a thousand falls and obstacles, and lose the way because we don’t keep our eyes—as I say—on the true way. It seems so new to us that you would think we had never walked on it…

God deliver us…when we do something imperfect from saying: “We’re not angels, we’re not saints.” Consider that even though we’re not, it is a great good to think that if we try we can become saints with God’s help. And have no fear that he will fail if we don’t fail. Since we have not come here for any other thing, let us put our hands to the task, as they say. May we presume to use everything we learn about greater service of the Lord in his favor. The presumption I would like to see present in this house, for it always makes humility grow, is to have a holy daring; for God helps the strong and he shows no partiality.

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.
