Feast Day of St. Joseph

Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Words of St. Joseph in private revelation: June 17, 2004, St. Joseph Speaks to Fathers
”Dear sons of God, you must treat fatherhood like the great honor that it is. By allowing you to provide formation to a child, our God has placed a degree of trust in you. You will not want to disappoint Him. You must listen to Him for direction on what your children require for the best possible preparation in life. Because each soul is unique, the same apporach that works for one will not work for all. Each child will need thoughtful consideration given to the approach that will best suit his or her nature…You should spend some time each day thinking of your children and what they need…What I want to stress to you, fathers of the world, is that your children need your love, along with these other things…If you are called on to correct a child, do so gently, with love…”

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.
