Today’s Reading


Wisdom 7:22-8:1

“For in her [Wisdom] is a spirit/ intelligent, holy, unique,/ Manifold, subtle, agile,/ clear, unstained, certain,/ Never harmful, loving the good, keen,/ unhampered, beneficent, kindly,/ Firm, secure, tranquil,/ all-powerful, all-seeing,/ And pervading all spirits,/ though they be intelligent, pure and very subtle./ For Wisdom is mobile beyond all motion,/ and she penetrates and pervades all things by reason of her purity./ For she is a breath of the might of God/ and a pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty;/ therefore nothing defiled can enter into her./ For she is the reflection of eternal light,/ the spotless mirror of the power of God,/ the image of his goodness./ Although she is one, she can do all things,/ and she renews everything while herself perduring;/ Passing into holy souls from age to age,/ she produces friends of God and prophets./ For God loves nothing so much as the one who dwells with Wisdom./ For she is fairer than the sun/ and surpasses every constellation of the stars./ Compared to light, she is found more radiant;/ though night supplants light,/ wickedness does not prevail over Wisdom.
Indeed, she spans the world from end to end mightily/ and governs all things well.”


About Us


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.


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.
