Love

God has a weakness: He cannot not love us

“‘The Lord God waits, He does not condemn us and cries. Because He loves us!’ He behaves ‘like a mother hen with little chickens;’ this is our victory” – Pope Francis, Homily at Casa Santa Marta, October 29, 2015. Read more here.

The pierced Heart of the Father – 2

We have pierced His Divine Heart with our sins. But, above all, with our ongoing refusal to return to Him. What is it going to take, for us to realize the extent to which we have pierced our Father’s tender Heart? He loves and grieves, precisely because He loves with an intensity you cannot begin to conceive. When are we going to console our Father, soothe the grief in the very Core of (more…)

The humble Father

How humble is God our Father, coming Himself to beg His children on earth to return to Him; to return to live in His loving bosom – His Divine Will. How infinitely beautiful is His humility, as is His love. And He never imposes; He asks. Yet we do not consider this extreme humility of the Father, incomparable in nature given who He is, as we remain intent on focusing on ourselves. (more…)

What is God the Father like? – Brief response to a question

The question was asked, “What is God the Father like?” Several names and adjectives can be used to describe how our Father is. In fact, many descriptions of the Heavenly Father exist in Scripture and the writings of various saints and scholars. But none of them suffice to describe Him in His entirety as, being God, He is infinite and ultimately unknowable in His essence; His nature. What follows, (more…)

A voice in the wilderness – 6

Love should fill the hearts of His people, yet love is dead because His Spirit is absent. How can you love, therefore, or speak openly about love, if you do not have God within you Who is Love? More specifically, how can you love – truly love, with the entirety of your heart, mind, soul and strength (Dt 6:5; Mt 22:37; Mk 12:30; Lk 10:27) – if you do not want God; you do not want Love Himself? (more…)

A voice in the wilderness – 5

Love, my beautiful love, I love You and adore You. You fill my heart, mind and soul with joy even in the most dire of circumstances. Your life is life, Your life is light. Yet many do not know You and those who once knew You, have forgotten You.

Note: Written in the Upper Room, on the vigil of Pentecost.

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…)

The Father on the Doorstep

GodtheFather7You came once again that Thursday morning at around 6.15 am. I had recently woken up and was preparing to go to early morning Mass, when suddenly the dining room became all lit up. It was as though multiple, strong spotlights had been placed all throughout the room and simultaneously lit up. In two years of living in the house, I had never seen anything like that. In fact, the light in the dining room was unnatural, because normally the room would have remained dark at that time of morning given its particular location.

As I stood silently looking around the room attempting to figure out what was happening, the light grew increasingly stronger and intense. It appeared to (more…)

The Father who is Infinite Love

GodtheFather7About two weeks after You gave me the illumination of conscience, You – God the Father – desired to show me with precision just how much of a tender, loving Father You are despite Your omnipotence. You chose to do this because You knew the extent to which I had been afraid of You my whole life and still was to some degree – as so many people are – despite my consecration to You. After all, throughout the Old Testament, despite what was described as my uncanny attraction to it since childhood, You were repeatedly portrayed as annihilating all and sundry in various ways because they betrayed Your trust in them. You did not exactly come across as a loving God.  (more…)

FOR HIS GLORY

The Father on His Throne

God the Father2You lifted me up to Yourself that weekday night a few days after I had completed the octave of purification and consecration to You. With infinite love and indulgence, You – God the Almighty Father – decided to show me what happens in the heavenly realm when a soul becomes consecrated to You. Hence that night, without prior warning, I found myself taken up into Your throne room: there I suddenly was, kneeling just a few feet away from You on both knees, as You sat regally on Your raised throne cloaked fully in Your Divine Light. The whole area which surrounded Your throne was similarly covered in several overlapping clouds of Your Light. (more…)

Beautiful love

Beautiful love is the most tender Father of all, for He is beautiful beyond measure and Infinite Love. Truly what “no eye has seen and no ear has heard, things beyond the mind of man” (1 Cor 2:9) are what the Father has prepared for us, because He wants to live in us, giving us Himself forever in an unimaginable exchange of love. The Kingdom of God is where the Father is, because He is (more…)

The love of the Father – Thought for the day

The love and parental tenderness of the Almighty Father never fail, even in the most difficult of circumstances. Turn to Him with childlike simplicity, wholeness of heart and love when everything and everyone around you fail you. You will find Him steadfastly by your side to both heal the wounds inflicted upon you and open doors which would remain closed by all earthly standards. Love (more…)

The vulnerability of the Father – Response to a question

The question was posed, “What is the vulnerability of the Father?” The answer is simplicity in itself: “Love.” Turn to our beautiful Creator and Father with love in every fiber of your being for what you need or desire, and He will be unable to resist your request as long as it does not result in harm to your soul. Our sweet Father is very tender at the core of His Divine Heart, despite His omnipotence (more…)

What is God the Father like? – Response to a question

How I wanted to rank you with My children and give you a country of delights, the fairest heritage of all nations! I thought you would call Me: ‘My Father’ and never cease to follow Me (Jer 3:19).

God the Father is love – boundless, profound, intense love which is incomparable by human standards. The Father is also joy and authoritative tenderness; His beauty is stunning. Although (more…)

The softness of God the Father – Reblogged by request

God the Father is the Almighty Creator, the Alpha and Omega of the universe. Yet His softness is remarkable and tenderness unmistakeable in His intimate daily dealings with His children. Soft – a softness and tenderness unmatched elsewhere – can be said to best describe our Father within the function of His Paternality and Parentality. Gently caressing, infinitely loving and firmly  (more…)

What is merciful love? – Response to a question

Another question was asked: “What is merciful love?” The response is that merciful love is not what but Who, for Merciful Love is God Himself.

Who is Yahweh Elohim? – Thought for the day

Who is Yahweh Elohim – God the Almighty Father? He is infinite joy and infinite love; pure and simple. Why would you not want to know Him?

Unrequited Love

How often in a single day do we fail to requite the infinite love of God the Father? How many times do we choose, consciously or unconsciously, to prefer our will over His divine Will? How frequently do we plunge the sharp arrow of pain, anguish and sorrow into the core of His Divine Heart? How often do we insist on wounding Him, despite our concurrent awareness of our cruelty?  (more…)

Made for Love – Thought for the day

We were made for Infinite Love and joy; no more, no less. So when we deprive ourselves of Him either intentionally or unintentionally, we experience this lack in the depths of our being, even though we may not necessarily be aware this is happening. Unless we return to Love, therefore, we shall never be satisfied in the full sense of the word, for we were made for Love, to love.

God the Father – Faithful and True

O beautiful, sweet and tender Father of ours, You are ever-faithful and true. I adore You; I adore You, O most beloved, pure and holy Father. Every time You promise something, whenever You say something will happen You always keep Your word, no matter how far-fetched it may seem to our puny human eyes. You deliver on Your promises without fail even when we disbelieve (more…)

Get to know our beautiful Father – Thought for the day

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?
