Today’s Reading

Truth

How do you speak?

In Jesus’ message of August 29, 2003, Volume Two,  He tells us to speak as He does.  “I want you to speak to others as I speak to you.   Let us review.  I speak the truth.  Always.  Children, do not tell lies.  To lie is to sin and remember that sin requires repentance.  I speak with great kindness.  I am gentle, but I do not withhold the truth, My child, because I fear your anger.  If you are called upon to correct someone, do so.  Counsel a friend or loved one in moral matters if you feel they are mistaken.  Ask Me if I want this from you and I will tell you.  Often I prompt a soul to correct a loved one.  I understand that this calls for courage, but I will see that you do not lack courage if you are following My will.  Speak with great love and gentleness and speak the truth.  Often, hearing the truth will anger a soul.  Remain calm and loving in the face of this anger and know that people were and are often angry with Me.”

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.
