“I want everyone to venerate My Divine Heart, because it is the Heart of a Father who loves His children with Infinite Love. Anyone who adores My Divine Heart atones for a multitude of sins. Console My Divine Heart and repair from your hearts (…) In this manner, peace – My Peace – will come on earth. Joy, Happiness, and Love will reign in the world once more.”
“My Divine Heart is the Heart of a Father Who loves His children to folly (…) a refuge for all men to come and rest in It, as a haven from the cares and burdens of the world (…) I desire to be loved, honored, worshipped, and venerated by all My children (…) Do not deny your Father this plea. I will accept anyone who comes to Me with a sincere heart.”
“This Devotion is in atonement for all the blasphemies committed against My Divine Heart (…) Many of the consequences of the Chastisement can be averted if (…you) pray sincerely and honestly to My Divine Heart. Whoever devoutly worships My Divine Heart pays Me homage, reparation for the tremendous agony and sorrow that I endure from My creation, due to the multitude of its sins. True reparation calms My Wrath and consoles My wounded Heart (…) Anyone who genuinely loves Me will console Me, otherwise he will be responsible for having let the fullness of My Wrath fall upon mankind.”
Note: The diptych, ecumenical, revealed icon of the Divine Heart of God the Father Encompassing All Hearts was written by Fr. Richard G. Cannuli, O.S.A., according to the original pencil drawing of the Divine Heart. After completion, the icon was kept on the altar in the chapel of St Thomas of Villanova Friary (USA) for many liturgies. The icon was blessed by Fr. Cannuli both with a regular blessing and the Holy Eucharist. Presently, the holy icon of the Divine Heart is in S. Europe.
Have a look at Created Beauty, the new website for the icons I finally let myself be persuaded to start writing and showing. To the left you can see a snapshot of it with the icons I have written so far. I set up a different site for these icons so that they could remain separate. I named the site Created Beautybecause icons are created windows that open unto Him who is Uncreated Beauty – the Divine Light; our beautiful and unparalleled Almighty Father.
The question was asked, “Is Adam God the Father?” The answer is no. God the Father is the Almighty Creator of the universe, divine in nature, timeless and ageless, whereas Adam is the first human being ever created by the Father, through His Son, the Word, in the Holy Spirit. Adam is the first parent of mankind, human in nature. He lived and died like all the rest of us and is now considered a saint in Heaven despite his fall.
He will crush your heart, to be able to love His people as He desires them to be loved. Indeed, as He loved them Himself. For without a heart that has been crushed, it remains closed or insufficiently open and His people cannot enter. They cannot be held with tenderness and joy, especially those most in need of His love: those who continue to reject Him, insult Him and blaspheme Him. Continue reading →
Just completed a small, portable icon (right) of our Almighty Father. Dimensions are 20cm x 30cm. Materials are wood with linen and natural gesso, 23.5 kt gold leaf and natural egg tempera. I originally intended to paint this icon for myself. But while scoring the drawing, applying the roskrysh and first highlights, the icon was so liked that it will now be in the private possession of an interfaith family. This icon of God the Father was blessed on the feastday of the Presentation of the Child Mary in the Temple (2013).
Meanwhile, for those who believe in the Sacrament of Reconciliation (e.g., Catholics, Orthodox), it is wise to sometimes say the prayer after confession, since the consecration leads to receiving the seal of the Father (Rv 3:10-12).
You work wonders through created things, O Lord, while men have lost the gift of wonder working. You take fire and water for Your servants, while people refuse to serve You. To wood and metal You give Your power, while it is returned to You, despised by people. Through earth and grass You bestow mercy on Your chosen ones, while people make themselves too impure to Continue reading →
