The floor plan is octagonal, the eight sides representing the eight Beatitudes. The ceiling walls have a shape of an octagon, and on each side there is a window with one of the eight verses (although there are nine), starting with "blessed are...", or in Latin: "Beati ...".
The church is Byzantine in style with a marble veneer casing the lower walls and gold mosaic in the dome. In front of the church are mosaic symbols on the pavement representing Justice, Prudence, Fortitude, Charity, Faith, and Temperance.
