Thank You, most beautiful and infinitely loving Almighty Father, for all the graces You have given us out of the sheer goodness of Your Divine Heart. We love You, we adore You, and we worship You.
This Easter season, pray for those who have lost their faith and are publicly denying the Resurrection of Christ, particularly those who are Catholic/Orthodox priests/former priests, so that they may be granted the grace of faith anew by God, despite their denial, as they remain priests forever in the order of Melchisedek.
Do not pray solely for yourself and for others. Pray also for the intentions, the desires, of God the Almighty Father. It is what He wants at this time.
For priests who may want it and do not have the book, may be unable to obtain it, or need extra copies, here (click on the link) is the complete Votive Mass of the Divine Heart of God the Father: Texts and Lectionary. Please feel free to print out and use as needed.
The Votive Mass of the Divine Heart of God the Father comprises selections from the Roman Missal, 3rd Typical Edition and Mass Lectionaries (Vols. I & II), 2nd Typical Edition, for use in the Dioceses of the United States of America. This Votive Mass, with its accompanying Lectionary, is offered as a convenience to those private persons who wish to celebrate this temporary Votive Mass with suggested readings. Publication of this particular Texts and Lectionary of the Divine Heart of the Father constitutes a first in the history of the universal Church.
The Mass of the Divine Heart is composed of authorized Mass texts, with several options for each text and the Consecration (Seal) Prayer to the Father, all of which have been selected specifically to express the love of God the Father for humanity. It is hoped that through this Votive Mass, which was ultimately the work of the Father, His Divine Heart and universal Fatherhood will be celebrated everywhere in the world, in accordance with the deepest desire of His Divine Heart.
The question was asked, “How do you pray to God?” The brief answer is simple. You speak to Him from your heart as though you are speaking to your very best friend or a great parent. It is true that there are set vocal prayers that you can say and which our Father does desire to hear. But what He yearns for most of all is intimacy with us – both the content and the process. So effective prayer to God entails our simple speaking to Him from the heart about everything that goes on in our lives, even though He already knows everything, because He desires a true Father-child relationship.
Do not be afraid to ask our Father, “What would You like me to do for You today?” He loves receiving such a question from us when it comes from the heart, because it opens us up to receiving His Will within us. Moreover, after you ask such a question with sincerity, joy and peace will fill your heart, your soul. And the rest of the day will never be the same again.
“You are just, O Lord, and all Your judgments are just, and Your ways mercy and truth and judgment. And now, O Lord, think of me and do not take revenge on my sins, neither remember my offences, nor those of my parents. For we have not obeyed Your commandments, therefore we are delivered to spoil and to captivity and death, and are made a fable and a reproach to all nations among which You have scattered us. And now, O Lord, great are Your judgments, because we have not done according to Your precepts and have not walked sincerely before You” (Tob 3:2-5).
“HaShem is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? HaShem is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? When evil men came upon me to devour my flesh, even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise up against me, even then will my trust be firm. (more…)
“Yahweh, God of gods, speaks, He summons the earth. From east to west, from Zion, perfection of beauty, He shines. Let our God come and be silent no more! Preceding Him, a devouring fire, round Him, a raging storm. He summons the heavens above and the earth to His people’s trial: (more…)
“Listen to me, Yahweh, and answer me, poor and needy as I am. Keep my soul: I am Your devoted one, save Your servant who relies on You. You are my God. Take pity on me, Lord, I invoke You all day long. Give Your servant reason to rejoice, for to You, Lord, I lift my soul. Lord, You are good and forgiving, most loving to all who invoke You. (more…)
“God of our ancestors, Lord of mercy, who by Your word have made all things and in Your wisdom have fitted man to rule the creatures that have come from You, to govern the world in holiness and justice and in honesty of soul to wield authority, grant me Wisdom, consort of Your throne, and do not reject me from the number of Your children. For I am Your servant, son of Your serving maid, a feeble man, with little time to live, with small understanding of justice and the laws. Indeed, were (more…)
