Key to Holiness

Draw near to Me, My children. Contact with Me is the panacea for all ills. Remember that Truth is many-sided. Have much tender Love and Patience for all who do not see as you do.

The elimination of self is the key to holiness and happiness, and can only be accomplished with My help. Study My life more. Live in My Presence. Worship Me. I said in Gethsemane, “If it be possible let this cup pass.” I did not say that there was no cup of sorrow to drink. I was scourged and spat upon and nailed to the Cross, and I said, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.” I did not say they did not do it. When My disciple, Peter, urged Me to escape the Cross, I said, “Get thee behind Me, Satan.” When My disciples failed to help the epileptic boy, I said, “This kind cometh not out but by Prayer and Fasting.” I did not say, “You imagined that he was ill. Nothing is wrong.” When the Bible says, “God has purer eyes than to behold evil,” it means to impute evil to His people. He always sees the good in people, but remember that I “beheld the city and wept over it.”

About Us

Mission

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.

Content

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.
