Courage

Words of Jesus, September 21, 2004

My little souls see clearly how I am working in the world. I am putting my servants together in groups to serve Me most effectively. Be confident in My guidance in your lives. I will not let you falter, nor will I give you a mission and then fail to direct its course. There is nothing that should frighten My apostles. You are My friends, dear ones. You are entitled to every heavenly consideration. You must petition heaven for anything you need to accomplish your work and you will have it.
Do not fear the cross. Remember that salvation for many often comes through one person’s agreement to carry a little cross. Do not separate the two issues and you will be joyful. Your cross can equal your brother’s salvation. This was My thought in everything. While carrying the cross, I thought of you. When you carry a cross, think of Me. Together We will proceed.

As given to Anne, a lay apostle Direction for Our Times, 2013, page 103. Volume Eight, “Resting in the Heart of the Savior”

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.
