Today’s Reading

Eagerness to Serve

These are the words of Jesus, recorded May 24, 2004 concerning fidelity to the Church through service.

”I am taking this opportunity to advise My brothers and sisters about events that will come upon the world. In this way, as I have said, you will not be fearful because you will know that I have foretold these things and thus you will see that the hand of God is present.
Today I would like to talk about dissension in My one true Church. There is coming a time of even greater disobedience, when many more will turn away from My Church. This will create even more difficulties for the Holy Father, who seeks to retain unity, per My dictates. Rebellious souls often blame someone else for their disobedience and so it will be in this time. Children, many of you will see this occurring and you will see great divisions. Do not fear that you will be left without a shepherd because I am you shepherd. In the time of confusion you must remain faithful to My Church, yes, and to the leaders who remain faithful to My Vicar, whom I will have chosen. It is quite simple and you will not be misled because you will be following Me. Let others discuss, as is the way of your troubled world. You need not discuss. You need only give praise to the Father and follow the path I have set out before you…”

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.
