You either do not love Him or do not love Him enough, because you do not know Him. If you knew Him, truly knew Him – if you tried to let yourself experience the intensity and profundity of His Love, just letting yourself be open to whatever He may wish to give you – you would be unable to resist Him. For God the Father is Infinite Love and who can resist pure love, unless they are intent with all their hearts on remaining wedded to darkness, desolation and despair?
God our Almighty Father – Infinite Love in Persona – desires our hearts, our love. What are we going to do? Are we ready to open up to Him, so that He can welcome us into His Divine Heart with unbridled joy? Or are we going to keep on living as we are, with no changes at all? What is it going to be?
“God respects and does not constrain man . . . God humbles Himself before us. He loves us with a tender love, not haughtily, not with condescension. And when we open our hearts to Him, we are overwhelmed by the conviction that He is indeed our Father. The soul then worships in love” (Archimandrite Sophrony, 1997, His Life is Mine)
The providence of God the Father knows no bounds: even out of sheer evil He Is always able to bring about good for ourselves, especially with regard to our relationship with Him and the fate of our eternal souls. Never does He let a soul spiritually die unless that soul specifically chooses to do so out of their own free will. And even in that circumstance Continue reading “The Divine Providence”
When we decide from the depths of our hearts to live in God the Father’s Divine Will out of genuine love for Him in the first instance, rather than for purely selfish reasons (that is to primarily obtain graces for ourselves), the Infinite Love that Is in Our Father’s Divine Heart cannot then resist granting us everything that we may need and then some! Regardless of Continue reading “Loving Our Father”
God the Father was both in His Kingdom and present on the Cross more than two thousand years ago when Jesus was crucified, despite our ongoing disregard for, and denial of, this reality. In fact Our Father was, in essence, on the Cross in Spirit. As the Father Who Is Infinite Love, in the Core of His Divine Heart God the Father experienced great anguish Continue reading “The Father on the Cross with His Son: Infinite Love”
The immense tenderness and intense love that emerge from God our Father’s Divine Heart for us, His children on earth, have to be felt to be truly known. He is the most tender, intensely loving but firm Father, never pushing any of us beyond what we can endure in the present moment, although He continually but progressively Continue reading “The tenderness of our Father’s Divine Heart”
To know and live in God the Father is simple in the extreme: all that we need to do is to decide, sincerely and genuinely, to return and give ourselves to Him; then we start truly knowing Him and living in Him. Enjoying at every subsequent instance of our earthly lives the Joy, Love, Peace, and Happiness of Heaven. But how do we achieve this when we have Continue reading “Simplicity of knowing Infinite Love”
The love and mercy of the Divine Heart of God our Father are infinite toward His children on earth, but His mercy is sweeter and more tender than His love. Every time we commit venial sin, we forfeit some degree of relationship with our Father because sinning is, in essence, distancing ourselves from Continue reading “The love and mercy of the Divine Heart”
