The Father waits for His children

“Even if your sins were as repulsive as mud, your confidence and your love will make Me forget them, so you will not be judged! I am just, it is true, but love pays for everything! . . . I make you a promise which will have an eternal effect. It is this: call Me by the name of Father, with confidence and love, and you will receive everything from this Father, with love and mercy . . . If you love Me and call Me by the sweet name of Father, you will begin to live, here and now, in the love and the trust which will make you happy in eternity and which you will sing in heaven in the company of the elect…..

“I would like to make My home in every family, as in My domain, so that all can say with absolute assurance: ‘We have a Father Who is infinitely good, infinitely rich and greatly merciful. He thinks about us and is close to us. He looks after us, supports us. He will give us everything we need if we ask Him. All his riches are ours, we will have everything we need.’ I am there precisely in order that you should ask Me for what you need. ‘Ask and you will receive.’ In My fatherly goodness I will give you everything provided that all regard Me as a true Father, living among His family as I indeed do…..

Father, I love You, I adore You, I worship You.

“You who especially need someone to take care of you in life, so that you can avoid evil, come to Me! I am the Father Who loves you more than any other creature will ever be able to do! Take refuge close, very close to Me, confide in Me your thoughts and your desires. I will love you tenderly. I will give you graces for the present and bless your future. You can be sure I will not forget you after fifteen or twenty-five or thirty years, having created you. Come! I see that you greatly need a sweet and infinitely good Father like Me…..

“I have just opened up a fountain of living water, which will never dry up from now until the end of time. I am coming to you, My creatures, to open My paternal Breast filled with love for you, My children. I want you to be witnesses of My infinite and merciful love. It is not enough for Me to have shown you My love; I also want to open up My Heart to you, whence a refreshing spring will issue and where all men will quench their thirst. They will then experience joys they have never known until now through being so weighed down by the exaggerated fear they had of Me, their tender Father…..

“Since the time when I promised men a Savior, I have let this spring gush forth. I made it pass through My Son’s Heart to reach you. But My immense love for you makes Me do even more, opening My Breast from which this water of salvation will gush for My children and I permit them to draw freely whatever they need for time and for eternity.

“But, you will say to Me, how can we come to You? Oh, come by the path of confidence, call Me your Father, love Me in spirit and truth, and this will be enough to make this refreshing and powerful water quench your thirst. But if you really want this water to give you all you need to know and love Me, and if you feel cold and indifferent, call Me by the sweet name of Father and I will come to you. My spring will give you love, confidence and everything you need to be loved forever by your Father and Creator. As I desire most to be known by all of you, so that you can all enjoy, even here on earth, My goodness and My tenderness, make yourselves apostles to those who still do not know Me and I will bless your toil and efforts, preparing great glory for you with Me in eternity…..

We love You, Father. We give ourselves to You.

“As for My children who do not follow the truth, I wish all the more to enfold them in My fatherly predilection, so that they may open their eyes to the light which now shines more clearly than ever. This is the time of graces, foreseen and awaited since the beginning of time! I am here personally to talk to you. I come as the most tender and loving of fathers. I stoop down, forgetful of Myself, to raise you up to Me and ensure your salvation. All of you who are now living and you too who are in the void, but who will live century after century until the end of the world, remember that you are not alone: a Father thinks of you and offers you a share in the unfathomable privileges of His love. Approach the spring which will gush forever from My fatherly Breast. Taste the sweetness of this health-giving water and when you have felt all its delicious power in your souls satisfying all your needs, come and cast yourselves into the ocean of My charity so as to live only in Me, to die to yourselves and to live eternally in Me…..

“Some of you, examining this work of love I am carrying out among men, will find cause for criticism and will say: ‘But don’t the missionaries, after arriving in those distant countries, talk to the non-believers about God, His goodness and His mercy? What more could they say about God, since they speak of Him all the time?’ The missionaries have spoken and still speak of God as far as they know Him, but I assure you, you do not know Me as I am because I am coming to proclaim Myself the Father of all and the most tender of fathers, in order to transform your love which has become distorted by fear. I come to make Myself similar to My creatures, to correct the idea you have of a terrifyingly just God, as I see men spending their whole lives without confiding in their only Father, Whose only wish is to make their earthly life easier and then give them a divine life in heaven. This is a proof that souls do not know Me any more than you do, not having overcome the idea you have about Me. But now I am giving you this light. Remain in the light and bring it to everybody and it will be a powerful means both to obtain conversions and to shut, if possible, the gates of hell, for I now repeat My promise, which will last forever:

“ALL THOSE WHO CALL ME BY THE NAME OF FATHER, EVEN IF ONLY ONCE, WILL NOT PERISH, BUT WILL BE SURE OF THEIR ETERNAL LIFE AMONG THE CHOSEN ONES” (The Father Speaks to His Children).

America, Do Not Kill

weeping_eagle

America, you have forgotten the most basic rule of order that underpins all humanity: Do Not Kill. The 5th Commandment of God. You are now reaping the wages of what you have sown without mercy in the heart and soul of your nation for over 250 years.

Stop killing with your words and actions, and the slaughter of your people will cease. Keep sowing hatred and division in your hearts and minds out of lust for power, for purported omnipotence, purported supremacy, and the slaughter of your own, by your very own, will increase not decrease.

RETURN TO SANITY, STOP KILLING!

ASK FOR FORGIVENESS AND THE GRACE OF ILLUMINATION

STOP THE SLAUGHTER!

The Divine Heart and the people – 2

“The chorus of the Church Triumphant and those of the Church Militant are united to our Lord in the divine action so that with Him, in Him and through Him, they may ravish the Heart of God the Father and make His mercy all our own” ~ St. Francis de Sales.

The Divine Heart and the people

“Return to that most loving Heart of your Father, which is full of love and mercy for you, which will receive you home, heaping upon you blessings. Return, you transgressors, to the Heart, ‘which means to My Heart that is all yours, since I have given it entirely to you'” ~ St. Eudes.

Christ in the Divine Heart of the Father – 2

“The Son lives by the Father because He is the Word given forth from the Heart of the Father, because He comes forth from the Father, because He is begotten of the bowels of the Father, because the Father is the fountain and root of the Son’s being” ~ St. Ambrose.

Christ in the Divine Heart of the Father

“Alone begotten of God, in a way peculiar to Himself, from the womb of His own Heart – even as the Father Himself testifies, ‘My Heart, says He, has emitted My most excellent Word'” ~ Tertullian.

The First See is judged by no one

pope-francis-21152349-2-402

 

Regarding the latest effort of the prideful malcontents in the universal Church (termed ‘signatories’), the Pied Pipers who have released their so-called Open Letter to the Bishops of the Catholic Church during Easter Week, one thing needs to be crystal clear in the minds of the faithful. It is this:

The First See is judged by no one

(#1404, The Code of Canon Law of the Catholic Church, 1983).

Like the Master, the servant. May God have mercy on the souls of these 21st century ‘Sanhedrin’ who, in reality, under the excuse of the “primacy of salvation of souls,” desire nothing else than to glorify themselves and elect their own (anti-)pope – a desire right out of the heart of Satan disguised as an angel of light. These individuals are now subject to censure and interdict as per #1372 / #1373 of The Code of Canon Law.

Happy Easter to all readers

Happy Easter, Christ is risen!

Relics of the Passion – 9 – The Stone of the Anointing and the Holy Sepulcher

From the Stone of the Anointing and the Holy Sepulcher

The Stone of the Anointing

The Stone of the Anointing can be found inside the main entrance to the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher,[1] Jerusalem. It was placed there after the reconstruction of the church had been finished in 1810 (Murphy-O’Connor, 1998).

According to tradition, the slab of reddish Stone is located in commemoration on the spot where Saint Joseph of Arimathea had prepared the Body of Jesus Christ for burial (See the Holy Land, 2017). It belongs conjointly to the Armenian Orthodox,[2] the Roman Catholics[3] and the Greek Orthodox[4] that are at the Sepulcher, all of whom were indicated as primary custodians of the church in the firman[5] of the Ottoman Sultan, Osman III, in 1863[6] (ibid.; Morio, 2014). Above is a photograph of a relic from the Stone of the Anointing in a sealed hand-carved, gilt-bronze reliquary that comes from the Custodian Franciscans serving the Holy Land.

The Holy Sepulcher

The Holy Sepulcher is the tomb where Christ was buried for three days before His Resurrection. It is located 295 feet (90 meters) northwest of Golgotha.[7] The tomb had been provided for the burial of Christ by Saint Joseph of Arimathea, a member of the Sanhedrin who had quietly disagreed with their condemnation of the Savior.

The tomb, which has a bed of limestone (Romey, 2016; Pells, 2016) upon which the Body of Christ had been placed, is enclosed inside the Kouvouklion, a small chapel that is located in the Aedicule of the Basilica of the Holy Sepulcher. The bed had been covered for centuries by a marble slab with a cross on it, which had been reportedly engraved by the Crusaders. Above is a photograph of a small stone from the Holy Sepulcher in the same sealed bronze reliquary that comes from the Custodian Franciscans in Jerusalem.
