Today’s Reading

Sacred Heart

Message from Jesus on October 1, 2004: “My little apostles must climb steadily up the steep hill to heaven. By doing this, moving steadily, you bring many souls behind you. If you leave the path to examine this distraction or that earthly offering, you will lose souls. This is a time for sustained service. You have experience and your experience tells you that service to the Lord is not glamorous…If you begin to feel downhearted, you must come quickly to My Sacred Heart or to the Immaculate Heart of Our mother. We will replace your gloom with joy again so that others will be drawn. We are a family of happiness and peace. We are calm and confident. We know that God is good and that He is Our Father who will not let us perish. Why, dear apostles, would we be sad? If you lose worldly possessions, understand that you have sent them here to heaven and you will collect them when you arrive. You will collect vastly greater things in heaven than you have given to Me on earth because I am all generosity. So let nothing grieve you. Nothing.”

As given to Anne, a lay apostle Direction for Our Times, 2004-2016, pages 19-20. Volume Ten, Jesus Speaks to His Apostles

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.
