Reconciling with the Father

There is always hope

There is always hope for everyone, despite the blackness, the pervasiveness and the persistence of some of our sins. Always, there is hope; always! Because Mercy and Love are among His most prominent names.

Return to live with genuineness in our Father’s Heart! Return to that most tender and loving of hearts – the tenderness and love of which you cannot even begin to conceive. Return to live in His Divine Heart as you once resided and both the sorrow of your heart and your ceaseless tears will be relieved. Return with sincerity to Him Who had been your first love (Rv 2:4). Do not let the circumstances of either your youth or of today cloud the judgment you once had.

Do not let the pain of the past and of the present ruin your future – in particular, your eternal future. Pray for grace and it shall indeed be granted to you in abundance, because our Father never stopped loving you with the infinity of His Divine Heart.

A question to ponder

When is the last time you have been to confession – the sacrament of Reconciliation with God? How often do you go? If infrequently or not at all, why is that? What slowly led to that? Do you think you can truly live life to the full without the sanctifying grace of God? What do you think happens to you, in your daily life, when you lose sanctifying grace and remain unwilling to regain it?

Examination of conscience

There is no mercy without truth – Saint John Paul II

Here is a solid, but easy-to-use examination of conscience by Fr Robert Altier, for those who might need it for the sacrament of Confession and either do not have one or have misplaced it; do not know where to find one, or have even forgotten how to use it (click on the picture to the left or this link to download). The examination of conscience is particularly good to use both for the end of the year/start of the New Year, and throughout the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy.

What the world needs – Holy Octave of Purification and Consecration to God our Father

Below is what the world really needs in our times, but Whom it keeps rejecting out of false wisdom. The Heavenly Father has promised to come and live with us and in us, restoring order in the world and granting it a period of true peace – His peace – when the world is re-consecrated to Him, to His Divine Heart. The infinitely beautiful, loving Father has been pleading for this, for years, now. And yet, so far His pleas, His cries of a Father, have fallen on deaf ears.

On the Divine Heart of God our Father – 12

“Our Father’s Paternal Heart is a refuge, a fortress, and a sanctuary for us. It is an ocean of love and mercy, a sea of bliss, and a paradise for each and every child to return to, when he or she is left alone in a world of emptiness and false illusion. Our Father’s Heart is, as Christ showed us in Gethsemane, where we are to go when there is nowhere left to go and no one left to turn to. His Heart is, quite simply, our true Home, where we all are invited to return. This is the deeper mystery of the Father’s Heart, a mystery we are all called to seek and to find. (more…)

And He will crush your heart

He will crush your heart, to be able to love His people as He desires them to be loved. Indeed, as He loved them Himself. For without a heart that has been crushed, it remains closed or insufficiently open and His people cannot enter. They cannot be held with tenderness and joy, especially those most in need of His love: those who continue to reject Him, insult Him and blaspheme Him.  (more…)

The Father who saves

“Why don’t you go to church?” (One Saturday evening in early September 2007).

I had not been to church in a while as I only went when I felt like it. Having been stripped of everything and everyone that really meant anything to me between that year and the previous year, that day I had just decided there was no point in living anymore. On hearing “the Voice,” I thought: Do I even know where a church is over here? I recalled having seen a church on one of (more…)

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…)

How do we say the prayers of consecration to God the Father? – Response to a question

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…)

The power and love of God the Father – A response

If you only knew how loving and powerful our Almighty Father is! Nothing is impossible for Him. If you knew, truly knew, how our Father really is, you would not stay away a moment longer. You would approach Him with great rapidity and ask Him, without fear or hesitation, to take you back into His arms and plunge You deeply into His Divine Heart. But many of you, so many of you, remain (more…)
