Today’s Reading

The Passion of Our Lord

The suffering of Our Lord continues today when looking at sin and disobedience that is so common in our world. Listen to one part of a vision from Our Lord dated September 17, 2004.

Today our Lord showed me a classroom filled with small children. They were very beautiful, as small children are, and I felt our Lord’s powerful and total love for each one of them. He showed me how He suffers because He is being denied access to them.And Jesus says,
”They are not told aboaut Me, Anne. They are filled instead with worldly notions that change from week to week, as worldly souls argue and compete for the honor of creating an ideology. They, the people who create these thoughts leading nowhere, are puffed up with pride. The schools of nonsense manufactured by worldly souls soothe their consciences and feed their sinfulness. Children are often far more discerning than adults and My little ones are confused at worst. At best they learn nothing. My pain at this is severe and touches the core of My Sacred Heart.”

As given to Anne, a lay apostle Direction for Our Times, 2013, page 11. 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.
