Desires of the Father

The Heavenly Father and ourselves

“There comes a time in each person’s life when they have to become true worshippers of God the Father in Spirit and in truth. For indeed, these are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks to worship Him” (Fr. Francis E. Reilly, March 2014).

We want to belong to Him

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.

Petition for the Solemnity of the Divine Paternal Heart

Your Holiness:

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 by Thomas W. Petrisko

HeartoftheFatherCov-final__53107_stdThe 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…)

Renewed call for institution of the Solemnity of the Divine Paternal Heart

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. In The Divine Paternal Heart of God Our Father, Petrisko (2012) said:

“The Father’s pain for His children now pierces His Paternal Heart. The Lord of Heaven and earth (more…)

The beauty of the divine life

It is immensely beautiful to participate by grace in the divine life of the Most Holy Trinity. What intense love! What joy and happiness! It is literally a slice of heaven on earth and who in their right mind does not want a piece of that? But the thing is, the offer to participate in the Divine Family life is not restricted to just a few persons. Our Father desires everyone to return to participate in His divine life. So much so that He is ready to shower His graces – unparalleled graces, even previously unseen graces – onto anyone who accepts His open offer. Why stay away, therefore, when you can all be filled with riches beyond belief; joy, happiness and love beyond belief?  (more…)

FOR HIS GLORY

The Father who is Infinite Love

GodtheFather7About two weeks after You gave me the illumination of conscience, You – God the Father – desired to show me with precision just how much of a tender, loving Father You are despite Your omnipotence. You chose to do this because You knew the extent to which I had been afraid of You my whole life and still was to some degree – as so many people are – despite my consecration to You. After all, throughout the Old Testament, despite what was described as my uncanny attraction to it since childhood, You were repeatedly portrayed as annihilating all and sundry in various ways because they betrayed Your trust in them. You did not exactly come across as a loving God.  (more…)

The softness of God the Father – Reblogged by request

God the Father is the Almighty Creator, the Alpha and Omega of the universe. Yet His softness is remarkable and tenderness unmistakeable in His intimate daily dealings with His children. Soft – a softness and tenderness unmatched elsewhere – can be said to best describe our Father within the function of His Paternality and Parentality. Gently caressing, infinitely loving and firmly  (more…)

The Votive Mass of the Divine Heart of the Father

The desire of the Father’s Heart never changed

“And I was thinking: How I wanted to rank you with My sons and give you a country of delights, the fairest heritage of all the nations! I had thought you would call Me: My Father, and would never cease to follow Me. But like a woman betraying her lover, the House of Israel has betrayed Me – it is Yahweh who speaks” (Jer 3:19-20).

FOR THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER

Our Lady of LongmeadowYou came that weekday morning in response to my question, “Is this church a (spiritually) safe place to be in?” A question I had been repeatedly but silently asking myself when I decided to return to the Church, after having attended Mass in some neighboring churches but in which heterodoxy and illicitness were both prevalent to some degree or another and unashamedly passed off as the new norm.

There you, the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God – given to me by your Son when you were at the foot of His Cross and by the Father’s Divine Will, to be also my Mother as the Mother of all mankind – suddenly stood, in the main aisle of the church; at the fifth pew from the (more…)

Consecration of the world to the Divine Heart of God the Father

Text of "Our Father" prayer with Tri...

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…)

The true meaning of living in the Era of Peace

How shall we be living in the era of peace, after the great Chastisement has been fulfilled? Unlike for many, if not most, of us living presently in the era of the flesh, during the era of peace we will be living thoroughly spiritualized lives – lives we cannot even begin to conceive of, right now – because the said era will, in effect, be the era of the Reign of the Father, in the intensely Eucharistic  (more…)

Worshiping the Father in Spirit and in Truth – 3 – Acquiring true love for God the Father

Why we need, both individually and as a people, the Purification and Illumination that are coming

We cannot acquire true love for God the Father and worship Him in Spirit and in Truth, as He so profoundly and longstandingly desires us to do, unless the heart of our souls (the nous) has first been purified and illuminated. This because it is precisely the heart of the soul that “is (more…)

At the brink of the Era of the 8th Day – Worshipping the Father in Spirit and in Truth

“The hour comes 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. God is a spirit and they that adore Him must adore Him in Spirit and in Truth” (Jn 4:23-24).

But what does it mean to worship God the Father in Spirit and in Truth? How do we (more…)

Do not be afraid

Do not be afraid! Enter into the Ark of these times by entering with your whole heart, mind, soul, and strength into the Divine Heart of God the Almighty Father. He wants you, He desires you, with a profundity and intensity of Love that you will never really comprehend, until you start experiencing it for yourself. However, you cannot  (more…)

The utmost desire of Our Father’s Divine Heart

The utmost desire of the Divine Heart of God our Father is that we wholeheartedly accept Him to live with us, in intimate union with each and every single one of His children on earth, all the days of our lives. Our Father’s greatest and, so far, largely unsatiated desire is that He comes to live, walk, and rest in us, as He originally (more…)
