The question was asked, “How do I go about saying the prayer of consecration” to God the Father? The answer is very simple: just say the prayer with sincerity and genuineness in your heart. And if you do not feel genuine and/or sincere, ask our Father to give you the grace of being genuine and He will do so. Our Father has made it very easy for us to become fully His property, to belong to Him instead of to Satan, because He wants each and every one of us to Him Who made us with infinite love.
The question was asked, “When is the prayer of consecration to the Divine Heart of God the Father said?” The answer is at any time. Whenever you wish to say the prayer, do so. No rules and regulations are involved although some say it daily as, like that, you are offering your day to the Father.
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).
We want to belong to Him – God our beautiful and humble Father – not to the other guy, that father of lies and murderer without compunction since the beginning of time. August is the month our Father desires for Himself, for His Divine Heart, as a symbol of His great, intense love. Let us, therefore, return to Him in the manner which He desires. Let us become formally consecrated to our patient Father so that we belong to Him.
With humility and love, we, the children of God, petition you, the Vicar of Christ, to approve a Feast for God our Father. We ask that this feast be entitled The Solemnity of the Divine Paternal Heart – The Feast of the Father of All Mankind, the eighth solemn day of the holy octave of consecration to God our Father. We ask that it be celebrated annually on the first Sunday of August. We believe that it is our privilege and responsibility to know, love, serve and honor God our Father through such a yearly Feast. We pray that Jesus our God and Savior, The Holy Spirit our God and Sanctifier, and Mary our Mother, guide you in approving this octave Feast so that all mankind may offer their fiat to God our Father, and so that “His Kingdom comes and His Will is done on Earth as it is in Heaven.” (more…)
The Heart of the Father: Why the Paternal Heart of Life is the Answer to the Culture of Death by Thomas W. Petrisko (2013) of Saint Andrew’s Productions.
“”We raise our voices and pray that the Love which is in the Father,” Pope John Paul II writes in Dives in Misericordia, “may once again be revealed at this stage of history…that it may be shown to be present in our modern world to be more powerful than evil, more powerful than sin and death.”
“Now, in our time, our Heavenly Father shows us the means to see this great Love of His that is so merciful, so wanting to be discovered – it is through His Heart of Life, His Divine Paternal Heart! (more…)
The public call was explicitly made for institution of the Solemnity of the Divine Paternal Heart of God the Father, in the liturgical calendar of the universal Church. This call was made by Thomas W. Petrisko, President of The Father of All Mankind Apostolate and former president of the Pittsburgh Center for Peace.

“The Father’s pain for His children now pierces His Paternal Heart. The Lord of Heaven and earth (more…)
The question was posed, “How do we say the prayers of consecration to God the Father?” The answer is simple: just say the Consecration Prayer with genuine intent in your heart and mind. That is all. If you feel, for some reason, that you lack the latter, ask God with sincerity to grant you that particular grace. He will as He strongly desires all mankind to become re-consecrated to Him. Alternatively, (more…)

FOR HIS GLORY
The Father on His Throne
You lifted me up to Yourself that weekday night a few days after I had completed the octave of purification and consecration to You. With infinite love and indulgence, You – God the Almighty Father – decided to show me what happens in the heavenly realm when a soul becomes consecrated to You. Hence that night, without prior warning, I found myself taken up into Your throne room: there I suddenly was, kneeling just a few feet away from You on both knees, as You sat regally on Your raised throne cloaked fully in Your Divine Light. The whole area which surrounded Your throne was similarly covered in several overlapping clouds of Your Light. (more…)
FOR THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER
Jesus Christ and Satan
You came in my dining room late that Tuesday morning, standing over six feet tall and dressed simply in Joseph’s striped, multicolored tunic (Gn 37:3). You came as the God-man who had walked on earth and it was the only time You appeared wearing Joseph’s tunic. You came seconds after Satan relentlessly attempted to throttle me with his claw-like hands as he yelled, “Renege! Renege!” in his raucous voice livid with fury and hate, while two demons grabbed me from either side and attempted to drag me down with them into the desolate abyss which leads to Hell – the place to which I had condemned myself for years on end. You came even though I had not specifically asked (more…)
The consecration of the world – or rather the purification and re-consecration of the world – to the Divine Heart of God the Father will end the Great Chastisement, particularly the global persecution of Christians that is forthcoming. How many, though, are ready in their hearts, minds and souls for this to happen; the fulfillment of the Kingdom come? How many are ready to sheath their pride, arrogance and earthly wisdom, in order to bow down before and worship God the Omnipotent Father? How many are both ready and want to see this happen in their lifetime? The consecration will happen but it depends on us whether it happens sooner rather than later, with consequences for everyone – believer and non-believer alike. (more…)
“Behold, a day is coming for Hashem when the spoil taken from you will be divided up in your midst. For I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem for the war; the city shall be captured, the houses will be pillaged and the women will be violated; half of the city will go out into exile, but the rest of the people will not be eliminated from the city. Then Hashem will go out and wage war with those nations, (more…)
The second Pentecost
1. “And the glory which You have given Me, I give to them: that they may be one, as We also are One. I in them and You in Me: that they may be made perfect in one: and the world may know that You have sent Me and have loved them, as You have also loved Me” (Jn 17:22-24)
2. “The sufferings of this time are not worthy to be compared with the glory to come that shall be revealed in us . . . Because the creature also itself shall be delivered from the servitude of corruption, into the liberty of the glory of the children of God” (Rom 8:18-21)

Devotion to God our Almighty Father: Appropriateness and doctrinal value
“In John’s Gospel, Jesus, in His conversation with the Samaritan woman, announces a new devotion: ‘The hour is coming and now is, when the true adorers shall adore the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father also seeks such to adore him’” (Jn 4:23; Galot, 1999).
“Devotion to the Father began with Jesus. How can it not be ours too? . . . For how many Christians is the Father, today, a living person? . . . [Meanwhile] preachers and spiritual directors who have spread it, have pointed out with joy the profound effects of purification and sanctification which it brings forth in souls. It seems as though there is a special grace attached to it. Why? (more…)

Hell is real
