The heart of the Father: God does not desire loss of any souls

Dio non vuole la nostra condanna, ma la nostra salvezza. Dio non vuole la condanna di nessuno, qualcuno potrà dirmi che la condanna di Pilato potrebbe essere giusta, o anche di Giuda, ma invece no! Il Dio della Misericordia vuole salvare tutti, il problema è chi vuole farsi davvero entrare Dio nel cuore . . . Ecco cosa il Signore dice attraverso il profeta Ezechiele: “Forse che io ho piacere della morte del malvagio […] o non piuttosto che desista dalla sua condotta e viva?” Questo piace a Dio. Questo è il cuore di Dio, un cuore di Padre che ama e vuole che i suoi figli vivano nel bene e nella giustizia, e perciò vivano in pienezza e siano felici. Un cuore di Padre che va al di là del nostro piccolo concetto di giustizia, per aprirci agli orizzonti sconfinati della sua misericordia – Papa Francesco, Udienza Generale del 2/3/2016.

“God does not want our condemnation, but our salvation. God does not want the condemnation of anyone. Someone could tell me that the condemnation of Pilate could be considered just, or even that of Judas, but no! The God of Mercy wants to save us all, the problem is who really wants to allow God to enter into his heart . . . Here is what the Lord says through the prophet Ezekiel: “Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked […] or rather that he desists from his evil ways and live?” This is what is pleasing to God. This is the heart of God, the heart of a Father who loves and wants that His children live in goodness and justice, thus live in fullness and become happy. The heart of a Father who goes beyond our narrow concept of justice, to open up for us the boundless horizons of His mercy” – Pope Francis, General Audience on 2/3/2016 in Saint Peter’s Square, Vatican City.

What is the Divine Will of God? Response to a question

The question was asked, “What is the Divine Will of God?” The brief answer is very simple: that we return to live habitually in the Divine Heart of God our Father.

What happens after you say the Consecration Prayer? – Response to a question

The question was asked, “What happens after you say the Consecration Prayer?” The answer is simple. If you said the Consecration Prayer with genuineness and true intent of heart and mind, it means that now you belong to God our Father through your own free will choice. You have returned to Him. You are His as His child, now taken to His bosom, and He will not allow anyone to snatch you away from Him as long as you yourself desire it, for He will never override your will. It also means that you will receive His Fatherly Seal (Rv 3:10-12) – more graces to not lose your immortal soul for eternity in what is coming. It does not mean that you will not suffer in what is to come.

How many times can you say the Consecration Prayer? – Response to a question

The question was asked, “How many times can you say the Consecration Prayer?” The answer is simple: as many times as you wish. However, once is enough. God our Father has made things very easy for those who desire to belong to Him or to return to Him. It is not a matter of how many times the prayer is said, but whether it is said with genuineness and sincerity of heart in relation to intention.

Cor Divinum Dei Patris Cingens Corda Omnium Hominum – Caritas Infinita

Consacratio Cordi Divino Patris

Pater Caelestis, Fons Vitae, Caritatis, Beatitudinis aeternae, donum vitae ipsae pretiosum nobis tribuisti. Pater Caelestis, noli nos permittere, quaesumus, hunc donum praesumere. Ad sanctitatem nos etiam vocasti. Per Jesum, cum Jesu, et in Jesu Christo, vivere in Divina Familia Tua nos vocasti. In Beneficentia Tua, quaesumus, ut concedas nobis omnes gratias necessarias vivere secundum Divinum Voluntatem Tuam, et Tibi offere unisquibusque momentis plenitudinem gratitudinis nostrae, et cultus, et supplicationis. Tibi consecramus nosmetipsos, quasi liberos prodigos redirendos Patri qui nos diliget. Nos accipe. Anulo regalo digitum nostrum circumda. Et veste purpurata nos tege. Et ad festivitatem, dapem, paratam omnibus liberis fidelibus nos praepara. Amen.

The need for re-consecration to God

The need is here for individuals – on their own, and in their families and communities – and for the whole world to re-consecrate itself to God our Father, so that evil, which is becoming increasingly manifest each day, will be vanquished and peace can come on earth. Two thousand and fifteen years after Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the one and only Father, came into the world, the latter has become pagan once again. The world, in fact, is in an even worse situation than it was originally, because denial and ignorance of the good cannot be claimed any longer.

We are human beings. Yet, we were made by spirits, for spirits, so that They could live in us, in each one of us, in the heart of our souls. But there are two types of spirits: the good spirits and the evil spirits, something many still confuse in this day and age by thinking all spirits are the same or are all benevolent and desire our good. Not so.

The good spirits are God the Father, God the Son – Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit – the Most Holy Trinity. The Father and the Spirit never became incarnate; They remained spirits. And even though Christ became incarnate and took on the flesh of man, He too is in His own right and in one of His natures a Spirit. They dearly wish to come and live in us, bringing joy, love, happiness and peace with Them. But unlike the evil spirits who have respect for no one and hatred for everyone, They will not override our will and shall not come to live in us and with us uninvited. We have to invite Them – something that is only just, considering the endless times They have invited us to live in Them and with Them, and we have turned a deaf ear to Their pleas.

Shall we, therefore, return to goodness, to love, to peace, to joy, to reason, to sanity by returning to God through re-consecration to Him? It is insufficient at this point in time to do anything less, because many if not most of us have become desecrated through our own will, by our sins of commission and omission. And God will not live where the darkness of sin resides. He simply cannot do so as He is pure, immaculate. Moreover, it is His express desire that all become consecrated or re-consecrated to Him at this point in history.

We need to be made pure anew and the easiest way of attaining this purity is through re-consecration to Him, as did the Maccabees in their own time (2 Mac 2:1-12). Shall we, therefore, become re-purified individually, as a people, as a nation, as an entire world of nations through His Holy Spirit, so that He can accept our “yes” and let flow all the graces needed from His Divine Heart, in order for evil to be quenched and peace be granted to the whole world? Or do you desire to keep on doing nothing about it, shirking all personal and societal responsibility, and see the world become purified through multiple nuclear holocausts, water, fire, and blood; some of which have already started to happen around the globe?

Every individual, every family, every community, every society, every nation is going to be purified. The only issue left for us to determine at this point in time is how this purification is going to happen. What would you like it to be? How would you like it to take place? The choice is in your hands and God awaits your answer. Decide.

Il Divino Cuore di Dio Padre che racchiude in sé tutti i cuori – Amore Infinito

Padre Celeste, fonte di vita, amore e felicità eterna. Tu ci hai elargito il dono prezioso della vita stessa. Ti supplichiamo, Padre Celeste, di non consentirci di prendere questo dono per scontato.

Il-Qalb Divina t’Alla l-Missier Tħaddan il-Qlub Kollha – Imħabba Infinita

Missier li Inti fis-Smewwiet, għajn tal-Ħajja, l-Imħabba u l-Ferħ Etern. Inti tajtna r-rigal prezzjuż tal-ħajja nfisha.

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.

Pray for the intentions of the Almighty Father

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.

It is time – The relationship between the Father and the child

And everyone who has left houses, brothers, sisters, father, mother, children or land for the sake of My Name will be repaid a hundred times over, and also inherit eternal life (Mt 19:29).

Give Him everything. It is time. Give Him everything without the slightest hesitation: everything you are and everything you are not; everything you have and everything you have not, down to the slightest thing. The Almighty and incomparable Father will supply and repay you like none other. He will repay you with a joy beyond description and He will give you His very own Self.

Yes, the Father will give you Himself and everything that is His in the entire universe, including His only-begotten Son in like (but not identical) manner to how He had given Him to the Virgin Mary – the coming of the Kingdom. Give yourself to the Heavenly Father, therefore, no matter who you are; no matter where you are. Give yourself to Him without fear, from the bottom of your heart. You can never lose, you can only gain.

The Father of simplicity

God our Father is all-knowing and all-powerful; omnipotent, the Almighty. Yet, in His Divine Heart, He is the Father of simplicity. He wants only one thing and one thing alone – your love. Will you love Him? Will you say ‘yes’ to Him?

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…)

On God the Father’s Divine Heart – 10

“The great mystical tradition of the Church of both East and West has much to say in this regard. It shows how prayer can progress, as a genuine dialogue of love, to the point rendering the person wholly possessed by the divine Beloved, vibrating at the Spirit’s touch, resting filially within the Father’s Heart” – Saint John Paul II.
