Following the dictates of my soul and my conscience, and with the
keenest sense of my responsibility to the Church, I declare that
supernatural and divine intervention seems to me the only logical and
satisfactory explanation of the facts.
Isolated from all the
surrounding features of the case, this essential fact seems to me to be
noble, lofty and supernaturally rich: that a humble nun has called
souls to true devotion to the Father, such as Jesus taught and the
Church has enshrined in its liturgy. There is nothing alarming in this,
only something that is very simple and in accordance with solid
The miraculous facts which accompany this message could be
seperated from the main event and its value would still be preserved in
its entirety. For doctrinal reasons, the Church will declare whether
the idea of a special feast can be considered seperately from this
particular case involving the sister. I believe that the fundamental
proof of the authenticity of the nun's mission is shown by the way in
which she puts into practice in her life the beautiful doctrine which
she was apparently destined to remind us of. I deem it proper to
let her continue her work. I believe that the hand of God is in all
this. After ten years of research, reflection and prayer, I bless the
Father for having deigned to choose my diocese as the place for such
touching manifestations of His love.

THE FATHER'S MESSAGE
July 1, 1932
Feast of the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ
Here, finally, is the day,
blessed for ever, the day the celestial Father promised!
Today the long days of
preparation are over, and I feel close, so close, to the coming of my
Father and the Father of all men.
A few minutes of prayer,
and then what spiritual joys! I was overwhelmed by the desire to see
Him and hear Him!
My heart, burning with
love, opened up with such great confidence that I realized that, until
then, I had never been so trusting with anyone.
The thought of my Father made me,
as it were, madly happy.
Finally I began to hear
singing. Angels came to announce this glad arrival! Their songs were so
beautiful that I decided to note them down as soon as possible.
This harmony ceased and
then came a procession of the elect, the cherubim and seraphim, with
God, our Creator and our Father.
Prostrate, with my face to
the ground, sunk in my own nothingness, I said the Magnificat.
Immediately afterwards, the Father told me to sit close to Him and
write what He had decided to say to men.The entire heavenly court
who had accompanied Him vanished. Only the Father
remained with me and, before sitting, He said:
have already told you and now I say it again: I cannot give My beloved
Son another time to prove My love for men! I am now coming among them
in order to love them and to make them know this love, assuming their
image, their poverty. Look, now I am putting aside My crown and all My
glory to take on the appearance of an ordinary man!"
Having assumed the
appearance of an ordinary man by placing His crown and His glory at His
Feet, He took the globe of the world and held it to His Heart,
supporting it with His left Hand. He then sat next to me.
I can say but a few words
about His arrival and about the appearance He deigned to assume, and
about His love! In my ignorance I do not have words to express what He
revealed to me.
"Peace and salvation," He said, "to this house and to the
whole world! May My power, My love and My Holy Spirit touch men's
hearts, so that all mankind may turn to salvation and come to its
Father, Who seeks it, to love and to save it!
Let My Vicar Pius Xl understand that these are days of
salvation and blessing. Let him not fail to take this opportunity to
call the attention of the children to their Father, Who is coming to
help them in this life and to prepare their everlasting happiness.
I have chosen this day to begin My work among men because today is
the feast of the Precious Blood of My Son Jesus. I intend to bathe in
this Blood the work I am beginning, so that it may bear great fruit
among all mankind.
This is the real purpose of My coming:
1. I am coming to banish the excessive fear that My creatures
have of Me, and to show them that My joy lies in being known and loved
by My children, that is, by all mankind, present and future.
2. I am coming to bring hope to men and nations. How many
have long since lost it! This hope will make them live in
peace and security, working for their salvation.
3. I am coming to make Myself known just as I am, so that
men's trust may increase together with their love for Me, their Father.
I have but one concern: to watch over all men and love them as My
The painter delights in contemplating the picture he has
painted. In the same way, it is My pleasure and delight to come among
men, the masterpiece of My creation!
Time presses. I wish men to know as soon as possible that I
love them and that I feel the greatest happiness in being with them and
talking with them, like a father with his children.
I am the Eternal One, and when I was alone, I had already
thought of using all My power to create beings in My image. But
material creation had to come first, so that these beings could find
their means of sustenance: it was then that I created the world. I
filled it with all the things I knew would be necessary to men: air,
sun and rain, and many other things that I knew to be necessary for
In the end, man was created! I was pleased with My handiwork.
Man sins, but it is precisely then that My infinite generosity shows
In the Old Testament, I created and chose prophets to live
among men. To them I told My desires, My sorrows and My joys, so that
they could communicate them to everyone.
The more evil grew, the more My goodness urged Me to
communicate with just souls so that they could transmit My commands to
those who were creating disorder. Thus, I was sometimes obliged to be
strict in order to reprove them; not to punish them - that would only
have done harm - but to take them away from vice and lead them to their
Father and their Creator, Whom they had forgotten and ignored in their
ingratitude. Later, evil overwhelmed men's hearts to such an extent
that I was compelled to send calamities upon the world to purify men
through suffering, the destruction of their possessions, or even their
death. These were the Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah,
man's wars against man, etc.
I have always wished to remain in this world among men. So,
during the Flood, I was close to Noah, the only just man then. In the
other calamities, also, I always found a just man with whom I could
stay and, through him, I lived among the men of that time, and it has
always been thus.
The world has often been purified of its corruption because
of My infinite goodness towards humanity. I continued to choose certain
souls in whom I was pleased, because through them I could be happy with
My creatures, men.
I promised the world a Messiah. I did all I could to prepare
His coming, showing Myself in the figures that represented Him, even
thousands of years before His coming!
For who is this Messiah? Whence does He come? What will He
do on earth? Whom does He represent?
The Messiah is God.
Who is God? God is the Father, the Son and the Holy
Whence does He come? Or rather, who ordered Him to come among
men? It was I, His Father, God.
Whom is He to represent on earth? His Father, God.
What is He to do on earth? He will make the Father,
God, known and loved.
Did He not say:
"Do you not know that I must be about My Father's business?"
("Nesciebatis quia in his quae Patris mei sunt oportet me
esse?" St.Luke, ch.2,v.49).
"I have come only to do the will of My Father".
"Whatever you ask the Father in My name, He will give you."
"You will pray to Him like this:'Our Father, Who art in
Heaven.......', and elsewhere, since He came to glorify the Father and
to make Him known to men, He says:
"Whoever sees Me, sees the Father." "I am in the
Father and the Father is in Me."
"No one comes to the Father except through Me" ("Nemo venit ad
Patrem nisi per Me." St. John, ch.14, v.6)
"Whoever is with Me is also with My Father", etc.?
Realize then,O men, that for all eternity I have had but
desire, to make Myself known to men and be loved by them. I wish to
stay for ever with them.
Do you want an authentic proof of this desire that I
have just expressed?
Why did I command Moses to build a tabernacle and the ark of
the covenant, if not to come and dwell, as a Father, a brother, a close
friend, with My creatures, men? This was My ardent desire. I
spite of this, they have forgotten Me and offended Me with countless
sins. I gave Moses My commandments to remind them, in spite of
everything, of God, their Father and of His sole wish, to save them.
They were supposed to observe the commandments and thereby
remember their infinitely good Father, always intent upon their present
and eternal salvation.
All this was forgotten and men sank into error and fear,
considering that the observance of the commandments as I had
transmitted them to Moses was too taxing. They made up other laws in
accordance with their whims, in order to observe them more easily.
Little by little, in the exaggerated fear they had of Me, they forgot
Me more and more and heaped outrages upon Me.
Yet My love for these men, My
children, never quite ceased. When I realized that neither the
patriarchs nor the prophets had been able to make Me known and loved by
men, I decided to come Myself.
But how could I come among them? There was no other way than
to come Myself, in the second Person of My divinity.
Would men know Me? Would they
listen to Me?
Nothing in the future was hidden from Me; I Myself answered
these two questions:
"They will ignore My presence,
even though they will be near Me. In My Son they will treat Me cruelly,
notwithstanding all the good He will do for them. In My Son they will
speak ill of Me, they will crucify Me to bring about My death."
Shall I stop because of this? No, My love for My
children, men, is too great.
I did not stop there. Understand well that
I loved you, as it were, more than My beloved Son, or rather, more than
What I am telling you is so true that, if one of My creatures had
been enough to atone for the sins of other men through a life and death
similar to those of My Son, I would have hesitated. Why? Because
I would have betrayed My love by making a beloved creature suffer,
rather than suffering Myself, in My Son. I would never have wished My
children to suffer.
This, then, in brief, is the story of My love until My coming among
men through My Son.
Most men know of all these events, but they fail to grasp the
essential thing: that love was the guiding principle in it all!
Yes, it is love. This is what I want to impress upon you.
Now this love has been forgotten. I want to remind you of it, so that
you can learn to know Me as I am, so that you will not be, like slaves,
afraid of a Father Who loves you so much.
You see, in this story we are only at the first day of the first
century, and I would like to bring it up to the present time, the
Oh, how My paternal love has been forgotten by men! Yet I love you
so tenderly! In My Son, that is to say, in the Person of My Son made
man, what have I not done! Divinity is veiled in this humanity, it is
shrunk, impoverished, humiliated. With My Son Jesus I led a life of
sacrifice and work. I received His prayers, that man might have a
clearly indicated path along which to walk always in justice, so as to
reach Me safely!
Of course, I can understand My children's weaknesses! Because of
this, I asked My Son to give them the means to get up again after they
have fallen. These means will help them to purify themselves from their
sins, so that they may still be the children of My love. They are,
chiefly, the seven Sacraments. And the greatest means of securing your
salvation, despite your falls, is the Cross, My Son's Blood poured out
upon you every moment, if you so wish, both in the Sacrament of Penance
and in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
My dear children, I have lavished these gifts upon you with
special graces for twenty centuries, but with what miserable results!
How many of My creatures, who become children of My love
through My Son, have quickly thrown themselves into the eternal
abyss! Truly, they have not known My infinite goodness: I love
you so very much.
You, at least, who know that I Myself am coming to talk to
you, to make you aware of My love, for your own sake, do not throw
yourselves over the precipice. I am your Father!
Is it possible that, having called Me your Father and having
shown your love for Me, you could find in Me such a hard and
insensitive heart as to let you perish? No, no, do not believe
it! I am the best of Fathers! I know My creatures' weaknesses!
Come to Me, come with confidence and love! I will forgive you after you
have repented. 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!
Listen, My children, let us make a comparison, and you will
be assured of My love. For Me, your sins are like iron, and your acts
of love like gold. If you gave Me a thousand pounds of iron, it would
not be like giving Me just ten pounds of gold! In other words, with
just a little love, great iniquities can be expiated.
This, then, is one very light-hearted way of looking at My
judgement of My children, men, all of them, without exception. You must
come to Me. I am so close to you! You must love Me and honour Me
so that you will not be judged, or rather, that you will be judged with
infinitely merciful love.
Have no doubt! If My Heart were not like this, I would have
already destroyed the world every time it committed sin! But as you
have seen, at every moment My protection manifests itself through
graces and benefits. You can conclude from this that there is a Father
Who is above all fathers, Who loves you and will never cease to love
you, if you so desire.
I come among you in two ways: the Cross and the Eucharist!
The Cross is My way of coming down among My children, since
it is through it that I caused My Son to redeem you. And for you, the
Cross is the way to ascend to My Son, and from My Son to Me. Without it
you could never come to Me, because man, by sinning, brought on himself
the punishment of separation from God.
In the Eucharist I live among you as a Father with His
family. I wished My Son to institute the Eucharist so as to make every
tabernacle the vessel of My favours, My riches and My love, to give
them to men, My children.
It is always by these two means that I cause both My power
and My infinite mercy to come down ceaselessly.
...Now that I have shown you that My Son Jesus represents Me
among men, and that, through Him, I live constantly among them, I also
want to show you that I come among you through My Holy Spirit.
The work of this third Person of My divinity is carried out
silently and often man is not aware of it. But for Me it is a very
fitting way of living, not just in the tabernacle, but also in the
souls of all those in a state of grace, to establish My throne in them
and to live there always, like the true Father Who loves, protects and
helps His children. No one has yet understood the infinite desire of My
divine, paternal Heart to be known, loved and honoured by all men, the
just and the sinful. These are the three gifts that I wish to receive
in homage form man, so that I may always be merciful and good even
towards the most hardened sinners.
What have I not done for My people, from Adam to Joseph, the
adoptive father of Jesus, and from the time of Joseph up to the present
day, so that man should give Me the special honour due to Me as his
Father, Creator and Saviour! However, I have not yet received
this special veneration which I have so much hoped for and which I
desire so much!
In the book of Exodus you read that God must be held in special
veneration. The psalms of David, especially, contain this teaching. In
the commandments which I Myself gave to Moses, I emphasized:"You will
worship and love perfectly only one God."
Well then, loving and honouring are two things that go
together. As I have lavished so many benefits on you, I must be
honoured by you in a very special way!
Giving you life, I wished to create you in My image! Your heart is
therefore as sensitive as Mine, and Mine as yours!
What would you not do if one of your neighbours did you a
small favour to please you? The most insensitive man would be grateful
to such a person for ever. Anyone would try to find something that
would give the greatest pleasure, in recompense for the service
performed. Well, I will be much more grateful to you, assuring you of
eternal life, if you will do Me the small favour of honouring Me as I
I recognize that you honour Me in My Son and that there are those
who are able to offer everything to Me through My Son, but they are few
indeed! Do not believe, though, that in honouring My Son you are not
honouring Me! You do, certaily, honour Me, as I live in My Son!
Thus, everything that is to His glory is also to My glory!
But I would like to see man honouring his Father and Creator
with a special devotion. The more you honour Me, the more you will
honour My Son, since, according to My will, He became the Word
Incarnate and came among you to make known to you the One Who sent Him.
If you come to know Me, you wil love Me and My beloved Son
more than you do now. See how many of my creatures, who became My
children through the mystery of the Redemption, are not in the pastures
which I have prepared for all men through My Son. And how many others,
and you know it, are still unaware of the existence of these pastures.
And how many creatures of My Hands, whose existence I know of but of
which you are ignorant, do not even know the Hand Which shaped
Oh, how I would like to let you know what an almighty Father I am
for you and would also be for those creatures, through My benefits! I
would like their lives to be made sweeter through My law. I would like
you to go to them in My name and speak to them of Me. Yes, tell them
that they have a Father who, having created them, wants to give them
the treasures He possesses. Above all, tell them that I think of them,
I love them and want to give them eternal happiness. Oh, I promise you,
men's conversion will come sooner.
Believe Me, if you had begun to honour Me with a special devotion
from the times of the early Church, after twenty centuries few men
would remain living in idolatry, in paganism and in so many false
and evil sects, in which man is running blindly towards the abyss of
eternal fire! And see how much work remains to be done!
My hour has come! I must be known, loved and honoured by men,
so that, having created them, I can be their Father, then their Saviour
and finally the object of their eternal delight.
Until now I have talked about things that you already knew. I
wished to remind you of them so that you would be more and more
convinced that I am a very good Father, not a fearsome one, as you
believe; and also that I am the Father of all those living now and of
those whom I shall create until the end of the world.
Know, also, that I wish to be known, loved and, above all,
honoured. May everyone recognize My infinite goodness towards all men,
and especially towards sinners, the sick, the dying, and all those who
suffer. Let them know that I want only one thing: to love them all, to
give them My grace, to forgive them when they repent and, most of all,
to judge them not with my justice but with My mercy, so that all may be
saved and numbered among My elect.
To conclude this brief account, 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.
I wish My son, your spiritual father, to be able to work for My
glory and to set down, sentence by sentence, what I have dictated to
you, so that men may find it pleasing and easy to read an account of
what I wish them to know, without any additions.
Day by day I will talk to you about My wishes for men, about
My joys, My sorrows, and most of all, I will show men My infinite
goodness and My tender and compassionate love.
I would also like your superiors to allow you to spend your
free time with Me, so that you can console Me and love Me for half an
hour each day. You will thereby ensure that men's hearts, My children's
hearts, are well disposed to work for the spread of this devotion which
I have just revealed to you, so that you may achieve great confidence
in this Father who wants to be loved by His children.
So as to permit this work to be extended among all nations as
quickly as possible, without allowing those entrusted with its
propagation to commit the slightest imprudent act, I ask you to spend
your days in a spirit of recollection. You will be happy not to talk
much to others. In your heart, even when you are among them, you will
talk to Me and listen to Me.
This is what I want you to do also: when sometimes I talk to you,
you will write My confidencesin a special little diary. But through it
I intend to talk to everyone: I live with them more intimately than a
mother with her children.
Since man's creation, I have never for one moment stopped
living beside him. As his Creator and Father, I feel the need to love
him. It is not that I need him, but My love, as Father and Creator,
makes Me feel this need to love man. Thus I live close to man, I follow
him everywhere, I help him in all things, I supply everything.
I can see his needs, his toils, all his desires, and My
greatest happiness lies in helping him and saving him.
Men believe Me to be a terrifying God Who is going to cast
all mankind into hell. What a great surprise it will be when, at the
end of time, they see so many souls they believed lost, enjoying
eternal bliss among the elect!
I wish all My creatures to be convinced that there is a Father Who
watches over them and Who would like them to enjoy, on earth, a
foretaste of eternal happiness.
A mother never forgets the little creature she has brought into the
world. Is it not even more wonderful that I remember all My creatures?
So if a mother loves the little being I gave her, I love him
more than she does, because I created him. Even if it happens that a
mother loves her child less because of some defect, I, on the contrary,
will love him still more. She may later on forget him or think of him
rarely, especially when because of his age he is no longer in her care,
but I will never forget him. I will always love him, and even if he no
longer remembers Me, His Father and Creator, I will still remember him
and love him.
I have already told you that I want you to enjoy eternal
happiness even here, on earth, but you still have not understood the
real meaning of what I said. It is this:
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. Is this not a foretaste of the happiness of
heaven, which will last for ever?
I therefore desire man to remember often that I am right
there, where he is, that he could not live if I were not with him,
living just as he is. In spite of his unbelief, I always remain close
Oh, how I wish to see this plan of mine realized! Until now
man has never thought of giving God, his Father, the pleasure I am
about to speak of: I would like to see great trust established between
man and his heavenly Father, a true spirit of familiarity and delicacy
at the same time, so as not to take advantage of My great
I know your needs, your desires, and everything in your
hearts. But how happy and grateful I would be if I saw you coming to Me
and confiding in Me your needs, like a son who has total trust in his
father. How could I refuse you the smallest or biggest thing if you
asked Me? Even if you do not see Me, do you not feel Me very close to
you in the things that happen to you and around you? How you will be
rewarded, one day, for having believed in Me, even without having seen
Even now that I am here, in person, among you all, talking to you,
repeating ceaselessly, in every way, that I love you and want to be
known, loved and honoured with a special devotion, you cannot see Me,
apart from a single person, the one to whom I am dictating this
message! Only one among all of humanity! Yet I am talking to you, and
in her whom I see and to whom I am talking I see you all and am
speaking to each and every one of you, and I love you as if you could
I want men to be able to know Me and to feel that I am close
to each one of them. Remember, O men, that I wish to be the hope of
humanity. Am I not already? Man would be lost if I were not his hope.
But it is necessary for Me to be recognized as such, so that peace,
confidence and love may enter men's hearts and put them in contact with
their Father in heaven and on earth!
Do not think of Me as that frightening old man whom men
depict in their pictures and books! No,no, I am neither younger
nor older than My Son and My Holy Spirit. Because of this I would like
everybody, from the youngest to the oldest, to call Me by the famliar
name of Father and Friend. For I am always with you, I am making
Myself similar to you so as to make you similar to Me. How great would
be My joy to see parents teaching their children to address Me often by
the name of Father, as indeed I am! How I wold like to see infused into
these young souls a trust and a filial love for Me! I have done
everything for you: will you not do this for Me?
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.
I also desire that every family prominently display the picture I
will later show to My "little daughter". I wish every family to be able
to place itself under My special protection in this way, so that they
can honour Me more easily. There, everyday, the family will share with
Me its needs, its work, its sorrows, its sufferings, its desires, and
also its joys, because a Father must know everything that concerns His
children. I do know it, of course, because I am there, but I love
simplicity. I know how to adapt Myself to your condition. I make Myself
little with the little ones, I make Myself an adult with adults, and
the same with the elderly, so that all may comprehend what I wish to
tell them for their sanctification and My glory.
Do you not have the proof of what I am saying in My Son, Who
made Himself small and weak like you? Do you not still have it now,
seeing Me talking to you here? And have I not chosen a poor
creature, like you yourselves, so that I can talk to you and make you
understand what I wish to tell you? And now, am I not making Myself
See, I have laid My crown at My Feet and held the world to My
Heart. I have left My glory in heaven and come here, becoming all
things to all men, becoming poor with the poor and rich with the rich.
I want to protect the young people as a tender Father. There is so much
evil in the world! These poor, inexperienced souls are letting
themselves be seduced by the attraction of vice which, little by
little, leads to total ruin. 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
Without going into many other relevant matters which I can
speak about later on, I wish to talk now particularly to those souls
whom I have chosen, priests and religious, to you, dear children of My
love. I have great plans for you!
TO THE POPE
I turn to you, My beloved son, My
Vicar, before all others, to place this work in your hands. It should
rank first among all your tasks and, because of the fear inspired in
men by the devil, it will be accomplished only at this time.
how I would like you to know the range of this enterprise, its
greatness, its breadth, its depth, its height. I would like you to
understand the immense wishes that I have for mankind, now and in the
If only you knew how much I
desire to be known, loved and honoured by men with a special
devotion! I have had this desire for all eternity and since the
creation of the first man. I have expressed this desire to men at
various times, especially in the Old Testament. But man has never
understood it. Now this desire makes Me forget all the past, if only it
can become a reality now, in My creatures all over the world.
I am stooping down to the poorest of
My creatures to talk to her, and through her, to all men, even though
she cannot realize the grandeur of the w ork I wish to accomplish among
I cannot talk of theology with
her, I would be sure to fail, for she would not understand Me. I am
doing this in order to realize My plan through simplicity and
innocence. But now it is your turn to examine this work and bring it to
a speedy fulfillment.
To be known, loved and honoured with a
special devotion, I do not ask for anything extraordinary. I desire
1. I desire that one day, or at
least a Sunday, be dedicated to honouring Me in a special way under the
title of Father of all Mankind.
For this feast, I would like a special
Mass and Office. It is not difficult to find texts in the Holy
If you prefer to offer Me this special
devotion on a Sunday, I choose the first Sunday of August. If you
prefer a weekday, I would like it to be always the seventh day of that
2. I desire that all the clergy
should undertake to promote this devotion and, most of all, to make Me
known to men as I am and as I will always be for them, that is to say,
the most tender and the most lovable of all fathers.
3. I desire them to bring Me
into all families, hospitals, laboratories, workshops, barracks,
conference halls of the ministers of nations - in short, wherever My
creatures are, even if there were only one of them!
I desire that the tangible sign
of My invisible presence be a picture to show that I am really present.
Thus, all men will carry out all their actions under their Father's
gaze and I Myself will have before Me the creature that I have not only
created but adopted. In this way, My children will be, as it were,
under their tender Father's gaze. Even now I am everywhere, certainly,
but I would like to be represented in a tangible way!
4. I desire that during
the year the clergy and the faithful should perform some acts of piety
in My honour, without detriment to their usual occupations.
Let My priests go fearlessly
everywhere, among all nations, to bring the flame of My fatherly love
to men. Then souls will be enlightened and conquered, not only among
unbelievers, but in all those sects which are not of the true Church.
Yes, I want these men also, who
are My children, to see this flame shining before them, to know the
truth, to embrace it and to put all the Christian virtues into
5. I would like to be
honoured in a very special way in seminaries, in novitiates, in schools
and homes for the elderly. May everyone, from the youngest to the
oldest, be able to know and love Me as their Father, Creator and
6. Let priests set about seeking in
the Holy Scriptures what I said in former times and what has remained
unknown up to now concerning the worship I wish to receive from men.
May they work to make My desires and My will known to all men,
specifying what I wish to say to people in general and to priests,
monks and nuns in particular. Those souls are the ones I choose, more
than others in the world, to pay Me great homage.
Of course, it will take time to
realize completely these desires that I have for mankind and which I
have revealed to you! But one day, through the prayers and
sacrifices of generous souls who will give themselves for this work of
My love, yes, one day I will be satisfied. I will bless you, My beloved
son, and I will reward you a hundredfold for all that you will do for
TO THE BISHOP
I also want to say a word to you,My son Alexander, so that My
desires may be realized in the world.
You must join with the father confessor of this "little plant" of
My Son Jesus, in promoting this work, that is, the special devotion I
expect from men. To you, My sons, I entrust this work and its future,
which is so important.
Talk, persist, make My words known, so that I may be known,
loved and honoured by all My creatures. If you do this, you will have
done what I expect of you, that is, My will, and you will have
fulfilled the wishes that I have so long cherished in silence.
For everything that you do for My glory, I will do twice as
much for your salvation and sanctification. In the end, in heaven, and
only in heaven, you will see the great reward that I will give you in a
very special way, together with all those who have worked to this end.
I created man for Myself and it is right that I should be ALL for
him. Man will not enjoy true happiness except with his Father and
Creator, because his heart is made for Me alone.
For My part, My love for My creatures is so great that I have
no greater joy than that of being among them.
My glory in heaven is infinitely great, but My glory is still
greater when I am among My children, men all over the world. Your
heaven, My creatures, is in paradise, together with My chosen ones,
because it is there that you will contemplate Me in an everlasting
vision and will enjoy eternal glory. My heaven is on earth with you
all, O men! Yes, it is on earth and in your souls that I look for
My happiness and My joy. You can provide Me with this joy and it is
also your duty towards your Creator and Father, Who desires and expects
this of you.
The joy I feel in being with you is no less great than that
which I felt when I was with My Son Jesus during His mortal life. My
Son - it was I Who sent Him. He was conceived by My Holy Spirit, Who I
Myself am; in a word, I was always I.
Loving you as I loved My Son, Who am I Myself, I say to you,
My creatures, as I said to Him: you are My beloved children and in you
I am well pleased. Because of this I rejoice in your company and I
desire to stay with you. My presence among you is like the sun on the
earth. If you are well disposed to receive Me, I will come very close
to you, enter into you, light you up and warm you with My infinite love.
As for you, souls in a state of sin, or who are ignorant of
religious truth, I will not be able to enter you; however, I will be
close to you, because I never stop calling you, inviting you to desire
to receive the benefits I bring you, so that you may see the light and
be healed of sin.
Sometimes I look at you and feel compassion for your unhappy
state. I sometimes look at you with love, to dispose you to yield
to the charms of grace. I spend days, sometimes years, close to some
souls to be able to ensure their eternal happiness. They do not know
that I am there waiting for them, calling them every moment of the day.
However, I never become weary and I still feel joy in remaining close
to you, always hoping that you will return to your Father some day and
that you will at least offer Me some act of love before you die.
I will give you an example of a soul who is facing sudden
death; this soul has always been for Me like the Prodigal Son. (Note by Mother Eugenia:"I saw this
example as fact, exactly as our Father dictates it and I write it.")
I lavished benefits
on this soul, but he wasted all these benefits, all these gifts that
his most loving Father provided for him. More than this he offended Me
gravely. I waited for him, I followed him everywhere, I gave him more
favours: health and wealth, that I caused to result from his work, to
the point of superfluity. At times My providence granted him further
gifts. He therefore had plenty of everything, but he saw it all in the
sad light of his vices, and his whole life was a fabric of errors
because of habitual mortal sin. But My love never tired. I followed him
all the same. I loved him and, most of all, in spite of his rebuffs, I
was happy to live patiently close to him, in the hope that maybe one
day he would respond to My love and return to Me, his Father and
At last his final day is approaching: I have sent him an
illness in order to make him come to his senses and return to Me, his
Father. Time passes and My poor son -he is 74- is at his last hour. I
am still there, as always: I talk to him with even more kindness than
usual. I persevere, I call My chosen ones and ask them to pray for him,
so that he may ask for the forgiveness I am offering him....And now,
before breathing his last, he opens his eyes, admits his errors and
understands how far he has strayed from the true path that leads to Me.
He recovers his senses and in a weak voice, which none of those around
him can hear, he says:"My God, I can now see how great Your love for me
has been and I have offended You continually with such a bad life. I
never thought about You, My Father and Saviour. Now You see everything
and I beg forgiveness for all this evil which You see in me and which I
now discern in my confusion. I love You, my Father and my
He died at that very moment and now here he is, before Me. I
judge him with a paternal love: he called Me Father and he is saved. He
will spend a period of time in the place of expiation, and after this
he will be happy for all eternity. Having taken pleasure during his
life in the hope of saving him when he repented, I now rejoice
even more, together with My celestial court, at having realized My
desire to be his Father for ever.
As for the souls who live in justice and sanctifying
grace, I show My happiness by living in them. I give them Myself. I
transmit to them the use of My power and through My love they find a
foretaste of Heaven in Me, their Father and their Saviour!".
Thus ends the first part of the Message.
THE FATHER'S MESSAGE
The second part begins on 12th August 1932. One day the devil took it
and slashed its cover with a pair of scissors.
"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 Saviour, I have let this
spring gush forth. (Mother Eugenia's
note: "I have been able to see this spring every day since He first
talked about it.") 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.
If you wish to test the power of this spring about which I am
talking, first learn to know Me better and to love Me to the extent
that I desire, that is, not only as a Father, but as your Friend and
Why are you so surprised by what I am saying? Did I not create you
in My image? I did this so that you should find nothing strange when
you talk on familiar terms with your Father, your Creator and your God.
For you have become the children of My fatherly and divine love through
My merciful goodness.
My Son Jesus is in Me and I am in Him, in our interchanging
love which is the Holy Spirit, Who keeps us united in this bond of love
so as to make us ONE.
My Son is the vessel of this fountain, that men may go and
draw from His Heart, Which is always full to overflowing with the water
of salvation! But you have to assure yourselves of the existence of
this fountain which My Son opens up for you, so that you can convince
yourselves that it is fresh and pleasing! So come to Me through
My Son and, once you are close to Me, confide your desires to Me. I
will show you this fountain, making Myself known to you as I really am.
When you know Me, your thirst will be quenched, you will be revived,
your ills will be cured, your fears will vanish. Your joy will be great
and your love will feel securer than it has ever been before.
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 for ever by your Father
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
I am the ocean of charity, My children, and this is another
proof of the paternal love I feel for all of you, without exception,
regardless of your age, your status or your country. Nor do I exclude
different societies, sects, believers, unbelievers, the indifferent. I
enfold in this love all the rational creatures who make up humanity.
Here is the proof of this: I am the ocean of charity. I
showed you the spring which pours from My Breast to quench your thirst,
and now, in order to let you see My goodness towards everyone, I am
going to show you the ocean of My universal charity, that you may dive
into it blindly. Why? So that, diving into this ocean, souls rendered
bitter by faults and sins may lose that bitterness in this bath of
love. They will emerge from this ocean better, happy at having learned
how to be good and charitable. If, because of ignorance or weakness,
you yourselves happen to fall again into this state of bitterness, I
shall still be an ocean of charity, ready to receive this bitter drop,
transform it into charity and goodness and make you holy as I, your
My children, do you want to live your life on earth
peacefully and joyfully? Come and cast yourselves into this immense
ocean and remain in it for ever. As you work and live your normal life,
this life will be sanctified through charity.
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, forseen 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 for ever 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.
(Mother Eugenia's note:"Our
Father told me in an intimate dialogue: 'The spring is the symbol of My
knowledge; the ocean is that of My charity and of your trust. When you
wish to drink from this spring, study Me in order to know Me and, when
you know Me, dive into the ocean of My charity, trusting in Me with a
confidence so deep as to transform yourselves: this I shall be unable
to resist. I shall then forgive your errors and lavish the greatest
favours upon you.'")
I am among you. Happy are those who believe this truth and who take
advantage of this time about which the Scriptures have spoken
thus:"There will come a time when God must be honoured and loved by men
as He desires."
The Scriptures then go on to ask:"Why?" and answer:"Because
He alone is worthy of honour, love and praise for
Moses received from Me as the first of the ten commandments, this
command to be communicated to men:"Love and worship God!"
Those who are already Christians may say: "We have loved you since
we were born or since our conversion, as we often say in the Lord's
Prayer:'Our Father, Who art in Heaven!'" Yes, My children,
it is true, you do love Me and honour Me when you say the first part of
the 'Our Father', but continue with the other requests and you will see:
"Hallowed be Thy name!" Is My name being blessed?
"Thy kingdom come!" Has My kingdom come?
You honour very fervently the Kingship of My Son Jesus, it is
true, and in Him you are honouring Me! But will you deny your Father
this great glory of proclaiming Him 'King', or at least, of letting Me
reign until all men can know and love Me?
I desire you to celebrate this feast of the Kingship of My
Son in reparation for the insults He received before Pilate and from
the soldiers who scourged His holy and innocent humanity. I ask you not
to suspend this feast, but, on the contrary, to celebrate it
enthusiastically and fervently; but in order that everyone may really
know this King, they must know His kingdom as well. Now, to achieve
this dual knowledge perfectly, it is also necessary to know the Father
of this King, the Maker of this kingdom.
Truly, My children, the Church - this society I entrusted My
Son to found - will complete its work by honouring Him Who is its
Author: your Father and Creator.
Some of you, My childen, may reply: "The Church has grown
continuously. Christians are more and more numerous: this is
sufficient proof that our Church is complete!" Know, My children,
that your Father has always kept watch over the Church since its birth
and that, along with My Son and the Holy Spirit, I wanted it to be
infallible through My Vicar, the Holy Father. However, is it not true
that if Christians knew Me as I am, the tender and merciful, good and
liberal Father, they would practice this holy religion more
fervently and sincerely?
My children, is it not perhaps true that, if you knew you had
a Father Who thinks of you and loves you infinitely, you would in your
turn make an effort to be more faithful to your Christian duties, as
well as to your duties as citizens, to be just and to render justice to
God and to men?
Is it not true that, if you knew this Father Who loves you
all without distinction and Who, without distinction, calls you all by
the sweet name of children, you would love Me as affectionate children,
and that this love, under My impulse, would become an active love,
extending itself to the rest of humanity who still do not know this
Christian society and who know even less Him Who created them and is
If somebody went and talked to these souls, abandoned to their
superstitions, or to so many others who call Me God because they know I
exist but not that I am close to them; if somebody said to them that
their Maker is their Father as well, and that He thinks of them and is
concerned with them, that He surrounds them with intimate affection in
their sorrows and dejection, this would obtain the conversion of the
most stubborn ones, and these conversions would be more numerous and
firm, that is, more persevering.
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
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
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 for ever:
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
And to you who will work for My glory and commit yourselves to
making Me known, honoured and loved, I give the assurance that your
reward will be great, because I will count everything, even the
smallest effort you make, and I will reward you a hundredfold in
As I have told you, it is necessary to bring to fulfillment
in the holy Church the devotion which honours in a very special way
this society's Author, the One Who came to found it, and the One Who is
its soul, God in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Until the three Persons are honoured by a special devotion in the
Church and the whole of mankind, there will be something lacking in
this society. I have already made some souls aware of this lack, but
most of them, too timid, have not responded to My call. Other have had
the courage to speak about it to the appropriate people, but, in the
face of their failure, they have not persisted.
Now My hour has come. I Myself am coming to make men, My childen,
know what, until today, they have not understood completely. I Myself
am coming to bring the flame of the law of love so that, by this means,
the enormous layer of ice that surrounds mankind can be melted and
Oh, beloved humanity, oh, men who are My children, set yourselves
free from the bonds in which the devil has chained you until now,
inspiring in you fear of a Father Who is pure love! Come, come closer
to Me, you have every right to approach your Father; open up your
hearts, pray to My Son that He may help you to know even better My
goodness towards you.
You who are prisoners of superstition and the laws of the
devil, leave this tyrannical slavery and come to the truth of truths.
Recognize the One Who made you and is your Father. Do not try to claim
your rights, paying worship and homage to those who have led you to
spend your life uselessly until now, but come to Me, I am waiting for
you all because you are all My children.
And you who are in the true light, tell them how sweet it
to live in the truth! Say also to those Christians, to those dear
creatures, My children, how sweet it is to think that there is a Father
Who sees everything, knows everything, provides for everything. Who is
infinitely good, Who forgives easily and Who punishes only reluctantly
and slowly. Tell them to come to Me: I wil help them, I will lighten
their burden and sweeten their hard life. I will enebriate them with My
fatherly love, to make them happy in time and eternity.
And you, My
children, who have lost the faith and live in the darkness, raise your
eyes, you will see shining rays coming to illuminate you. I am the sun
that shines, warms and re-warms. Look, and recognize that I am your
Creator, your Father, your one and only God. It is because I love you
that I come to make you love Me, so that you may all be saved. I am
speaking to all men, the world over, making this appeal of My fatherly
love ring out, this infinite love that I want you to know is a
Love, love, love always, but also show others how to love
the Father, so that from today on I will be able to show you all the
Father Who loves you so passionately.
And you, My beloved sons, priests and monks, I exhort you to
make known this fatherly love that I have for men, and for you in
particular. You must work so that My will may be accomplished in all
men and in you. It is that I should be known, honoured and loved. Do
not leave My love inactive for a long time, because I am thirsty in My
desire to be loved!
This century is privileged above all others. Do not let this
privilege pass, for fear that it might be withdrawn! Souls need a
certain divine touch, and time presses; do not be afraid of anything, I
am your Father; I will help you in your efforts and your work. I will
sustain you always and make you enjoy, already here below, peace and
joy of soul, making your ministry and your zealous works bear fruit.
This is an inestimable gift, since the soul which is peaceful and
joyful already has a foretaste of heaven while awaiting its eternal
I communicated to My Vicar, the Supreme Pontiff, My
Representative on earth, a very special predilection for the missionary
apostolate in distant countries and, most of all, a great zeal to
spread throughout the world the devotion to the Sacred Heart of My Son
Jesus. Now I am entrusting him with the work that this same Jesus came
on earth to accomplish: to glorify Me by making Me known as I am, just
as I am telling all men, My creatures and children.
If men could penetrate the Heart of Jesus in all its desires
and its glory, they would realize that Its most ardent desire is to
glorify the Father, the One Who sent Him, and, most of all, not to let
His glory be diminished as it has been until now. He desires the
complete glory that men can and must give Me, as their Father and
Maker, and still more as the Author of their Redemption!
I am asking of man what he is able to give Me: his confidence, his
love and his gratitude. It is not because I need My creature and his
adoration that I desire to be known, honoured and loved; the only
reason why I am stooping down to him is to save him and give him a
share in My glory. Further, in My goodness and My love I realize that
the beings I have drawn from nothing and adopted as My true children
are falling in great numbers into eternal unhappiness with the devils.
They are thus failing to fulfill the purpose of their creation and are
losing their time and their eternity!
If there is something that I desire, above all now, it is
simply to see more fervour on the part of the just, a smooth path for
the conversion of sinners, sincere and persevering conversion, and the
return of the prodigal sons to their Father's house. I am referring in
particular to the Jews and to all others who are My creatures and
children, such as the schismatics, the heretics, the freemasons, the
poor infidels, the sacrilegious, and the various secret sects. I want
this whole world to know that there is a God and a Creator. This God,
Who will address their ignorance twice over, is unknown to them; they
do not know that I am their Father.
Believe Me, you who are
listening to Me as you read these words: if all men who are far from
our Catholic Church heard people talking about this Father Who loves
them, Who is their Creator and their God, about this Father Who desires
to give them eternal life, then many of these men, even the most
obstinate ones, would come to this Father of Whom you had spoken to
If you cannot go to them and talk to them directly, look for other
means: thousands of direct and indirect ways. Put them into effect with
the true spirit of disciples and with great fervour. I promise you that
your efforts wil soon be crowned with success by a special grace. Make
yourselves apostles of My fatherly goodness and, because of the zeal I
will give you all, you will be strong and powerful in your work among
I will always be close to you and in you: if there are two of
you talking, I will be with you; if there are more, I will be among
you; thus you will say what I inspire you to say and I will put your
listeners in the right frame of mind to hear you. In this way, men will
be conquered by love and saved for all eternity.
With regard to the means of honouring Me as I desire, all I
ask of you is great confidence. Do not think I want austerities or
mortifications; I do not want you to walk barefoot or to lay your faces
in the dust, or to cover yourselves with ashes. No,no! My dearest wish
is that you behave as My children, simply and trusting in Me!
With you I will become everything for everyone, the most tender and
loving Father. I will be on intimate terms with you, giving Myself to
you all, making Myself small so as to make you great for
Most of the unbelievers, the impious and various communities
remain in their iniquity and unbelief because they think that I am
asking the impossible of them, that they have to submit to My commands
like slaves of a tyrannical lord, whose power and pride keep him
distant from his subjects, to oblige them to show Him respect and
devotion. No,no, My children! I know how to make Myself small, far
smaller than you can imagine.
However, what I do require is the faithful observance of the
commandments I gave the Church, so that you will be rational creatures
and will not be like animals because of your lack of discipline and
your evil inclinations, so that you will preserve the treasure which is
the soul I gave you, clothed in the fullness of its divine
Then, according to My desire, do what I have already instructed you
to do: honour Me with a special devotion. May this make you know My
will to give you many benefits and to let you share in large measure in
My power and My glory, simply in order to make you happy and save you,
and to show My sole desire: to love you and be loved in return by you.
If you love Me as faithful children, you will also have loving and
obedient respect for My Church and My representatives. Not a respect
such as you show now, which keeps you distant from Me because you are
afraid of Me. This false respect that you have now is an injustice to
justice, it is a wound you cause to the most sensitive part of My
Heart; you are forgetting, scorning, My fatherly love for you.
What most grieved Me about My people, Israel, and what most
afflicts Me still about present-day humanity, is this ill-conceived
respect you have of Me. Man's enemy has, in fact, used it to lead him
to fall into idolatry and schisms. He is still using it and will
continue to use it against you to keep you distant from the truth, from
My Church and from Me. Oh, do not allow yourselves to be led any longer
by the enemy; believe in the truth that is being revealed to you and
walk in the light of this truth.
You, My children, who are outside the Catholic Church, should
realize that you are not excluded from My fatherly love. I am making
this tender appeal to you because you too are My children. If you have
lived up to now in the devil's snares, acknowledge that he has cheated
you. Come to Me, your Father, and I will receive you with joy and love!
And you, who only know the religion in which you have grown
up, and that religion is not the true one, open your eyes. Here is your
Father, He Who created you and Who wants to save you. I come to you to
bring you the truth and salvation. I can see that you do not know Me
and do not realize that all I want is for you to know Me as your
Father, Creator and Saviour. It is because of this ignorance that you
cannot love Me. Understand, therefore, that I am not as far from you as
How could I leave you alone after having created you and
adopted you through My love? I follow you everywhere, I protect you
always, so that everything may become a confirmation of My great
liberality towards you, in spite of your forgetfulness about My
infinite goodness. This forgetfulness makes you say:"Nature provides us
with everything, it makes us live and die." This is the time of grace
and light. Recognize, then, that I am the only true God!
In order to give you real happiness in this life and in the
next, I want you to do what I am suggesting to you in this light. The
time is propitious, do not lose this love which is being offered to
your hearts so tangibly. I ask everyone to take part in the Holy
Mass according to the liturgy; this pleases Me greatly! Later on I will
suggest some short prayers to you, but I do not want to overburden you!
The most important thing will be to honour Me as I told you, by
establishing a feast in My honour and serving Me with the simplicity of
true children of your God, Father, Creator and Saviour of the human
Here is another proof of My fatherly love for men. My
children, I will not speak to you about the whole greatness of My
infinite love, because you have only to open the holy books, to look at
the crucifix, the tabernacle and the Blessed Sacrament, to realize the
extent to which I have loved you!
Nevertheless, in order to show you that you need to satisfy
My will for you and to make Me better known and loved, I wish, before
ending these words, which only set out the basis of My work of love
among men, to point out to you some of the innumerable proofs of My
love for you!
As long as man does not live in the truth, he cannot taste real
freedom. You, My children, think you have joy and peace, you who
are outside the true law, for obedience to which I created you. But
deep in your hearts you feel that you have neither true peace nor true
joy and that you do not enjoy the true freedom of the One Who created
you and is your God and Father!
But you who abide in the true law, or rather, who have promised to
follow the law that I gave you to ensure your salvation, have let vice
lead you into evil. You have strayed from the law by behaving badly. Do
you think your are happy? No. You feel that your hearts are not at
ease. Do you suppose that, looking for pleasure and other human joys,
your hearts will finally be satisfied? No. Let Me tell you, you will
never feel truly free nor truly happy until you recognize Me as your
Father and submit to My yoke, to be true children of God your Father.
Why? Because I created you for a single purpose, to know Me,
love Me and serve Me, as a simple and trusting child serves its father!
Once, in the Old Testament, men behaved like animals, they did not
preserve any sign of their dignity as children of God, their Father. So
to make them realize that I wanted to raise them to the great dignity
of God's children, I sometimes had to show Myself as dreadfully severe.
Later, when i saw some of them were endowed with sufficient reason to
understand, eventually, that it was necessary to distance themselves
from the animals, I then began to lavish benefits on them, to give them
victory over those who were still unable to recognize and preserve
their own dignity.
And as they were increasing in number, I sent My Son to them. He
was adorned with all the divine perfections because He was the Son of a
perfect God. It was He Who showed them the ways to perfection. Through
Him I adopted you in My infinite love, as real children. Since then I
have never called you simply "creatures", but "children".
I clothed you in the true spirit of the new law which not only
distinguishes you from animals, like the men of the old law, but raises
you above those men of the Old Testament. I raised you all to the
dignity of children of God. Yes, you are My children and you must tell
Me that I am your Father. But trust in Me as children do, because
without this trust you will never be truly free.
Everything I am saying to you is intended to make you realize that
I come to carry out this work of love, to give you powerful help to
cast off the tyrannical slavery which imprisons your souls, and to let
you enjoy real freedom, whence real happiness comes. Compared with this
freedom, all earthly joys are as nothing. Raise yourselves to the
dignity of children of God and learn how to respect your own greatness.
I will then be your Father more than ever, the most lovable and
merciful of fathers.
I have come to bring peace with this work of love. I will let a ray
of peace fall upon anyone who honours Me and trusts in Me, so that he
will be relieved in all his troubles, all his worries, sufferings and
afflictions, especially if he calls Me and loves Me as his Father. If
families honour Me and love Me as their Father, I wil give them My
peace together with My providence. If workers, businessmen and artisans
invoke and honour Me, I will give them My peace and My strength, I will
show Myself to be the good and merciful Father. If each Christian
community invokes and honours Me, I will give it My peace, I will show
Myself to be a most loving Father, and through My power I will ensure
the eternal salvation of souls.
If all mankind invokes and honours Me, I will bring down upon
it the spirit of peace like a benevolent dew.
If all nations, as such, invoke and honour Me, there will be
no more discord, nor wars, because I am the God of peace and where I
am, there no war can be.
Do you wish to gain victory over your enemy? Call upon
Me and you will triumph over him.
Finally, you know that I can do everything because of My
power. Well, I am offering this power to all of you, to use now and for
eternity. I will always show Myself to be your Father, provided that
you show yourselves to be My children.
What do I desire to achieve with this work of love, if not to find
hearts able to understand Me?
I am the holiness of which I possess the perfect and full
expression; I offer you this holiness, of which I am the Author,
through My Holy Spirit, and I instill it in your souls through My Son's
merits. It is through My Son and the Holy Spirit that I am coming to
you and into you, and it is in you that I seek My repose.
To some souls, the words "I am coming into you" will seem a
mystery, but it is not a mystery! Because, having instructed My
Son to institute the Holy Eucharist, I intended to come to you every
time you receive the Sacred Host!
Of course, nothing prevented Me from coming to you even before the
Eucharist, as nothing is impossible to Me! But receiving this
Sacrament is an action that is easy to understand and it shows how I
come to you!
When I am in you, I can more easily give you what I possess,
provided that you ask Me for it. Through this Sacrament you are
intimately united with Me. It is in this intimacy that the outpouring
of My love makes My holiness spread into your souls.
I fill you with My love, then you have only to ask Me for the
virtues and perfection you need and you can be sure that in those
moments when God is reposing in His creatures, nothing will be refused
Since you know My favourite place of rest, are you not going
to offer Me it? I am your Father and your God; will you dare
refuse Me this? Oh, do not let Me suffer because of your cruelty
towards a Father Who is asking you for this one favour for Himself.
Before ending this Message, I want to express a wish to numerous
souls who are consecrated to My service. You, priests and religious,
are those souls. You are dedicated to My service, whether in the
contemplative life or in charitable and apostolic works. For My part,
this is a privilege granted through My goodness; for your part, it is
faithfulness to your vocation, together with your good will.
This is My desire: you who find it easier to understand what
I expect of mankind, pray to Me, so that I will be able to accomplish
My work of love in all souls. You know all the difficulties that have
to be overcome to win a soul! Well, this is the effective means of
helping you to bring a great number of them to Me: this means is that
of making Me known, loved and honoured by men.
I want you to be the first ones to start doing this. What joy
for Me to enter first the houses of priests and religious! What
joy to find Myself, as Father, amid the children of My love! With
you I will converse as with intimate friends! I will be for you the
most discreet of confidants! I will be everything to you, I will
satisfy all your needs! Most of all, I will be the Father Who
receives your requests, Who lavishes His love, His benefits and His
universal tenderness upon you.
Do not refuse Me this joy which I desire to enjoy with you! I
will give it back to you a hundredfold and, since you will honour Me, I
will honour you too, by preparing great glory for you in My kingdom!
I am the light of lights: where it penetrates there will be
life, bread and happiness. This light will illumine the pilgrim, the
sceptic, the ignorant. It will illumine you all, O men who live in this
world of darkness and vice. If you did not have My light, you would
fall into the abyss of eternal death!
Finally, this light will lighten the ways which lead to the
true Catholic Church for its poor children who are still victims of
superstition. I will show Myself as a Father to those who suffer most
on earth, the poor lepers.
I will show Myself to be the Father of all those who are abandoned,
the outcasts of every human society. I will show Myself as a Father to
the afflicted, the sick, and above all, to those who are in agony. I
will show Myself as a Father to all families, to orphans, widows,
prisoners, workers and the young. I will show Myself as the Father of
kings, the Father of their nations. You will all feel My goodness and
My protection, you will all see My power!
My fatherly and divine blessing on everyone. Amen!
Especially to My Son and Representative.Amen!
Especially My son, the bishop. Amen!
Especially to My son, your spiritual father. Amen!
Especially to My daughters, your mothers. Amen!
To all the congregation of My love. Amen!
To all the Church and to all the clergy. Amen!
A very special blessing to the Church in purgatory. Amen! Amen!
"Through Him, with Him
and in Him"
God is my Father
My Father in Heaven, how sweet it is to know that You are my Father
and that I am Your child!
Especially when the skies of my soul are cloudy and my cross weighs
more heavily, I feel the need to repeat to You: Father, I believe in
Your love for me!
Yes, I believe that you are a Father to me at every moment of my
life, and that I am your child!
I believe that You love me with an infinite love!
I believe that You are watching over me night and day and
that not a hair falls from my head without your permission!
I believe that, in Your infinite Wisdom, You know better than
I what is good for me.
I believe that, in Your infinite power, You can bring good even out
I believe that, in your infinite goodness, You make
everything to the advantage of those who love You; even under the hands
of those who strike me I kiss Your hand which heals!
I believe, but increase in me faith, hope and love!
Teach me always to see Your love as my guide in every event
of my life.
Teach me to surrender myself to You like a baby in its mother's
Father,You know everything, You see everything, you know me better
than I know myself; You can do everything, and You love me!
My Father, since it is Your wish that we should always turn to You,
I come with confidence to ask you, together with Jesus and Mary...(here
request the favour that you desire).
For this intention, and uniting myself to their Most Sacred
Hearts, I offer you all my prayers, my sacrifices and mortifications,
all my actions, and greater faithfulness to my duties(If this prayer is
to be recited as a novena, add: "I promise to be more generous,
especially during these nine days, in a given circumstance, to such and
such a person....").
Give me the light, the grace and the power of the Holy
Strengthen me in this Spirit, that I may never lose Him,
never sadden Him and never allow Him to become weaker in me.
My Father, I ask this in the name of Jesus, Your Son! And
You, Jesus, open your Heart and place it in my own, and, together with
Mary's, offer it to our divine Father! Obtain for me the grace that I
Divine Father, call all men to Yourself. Let all the world proclaim
Your fatherly goodness and your divine mercy!
Be a tender Father to me and protect me wherever I am, like
the apple of Your eye. Make me always a worthy son/daughter; have mercy
Divine Father, sweet hope of our souls, may You be known,
honoured and loved by all men!
Divine Father, infinite goodness poured out on all peoples, may You
be known, honoured and loved by all men!
Divine Father, beneficent dew of humanity, may You be known,
honoured and loved by all men!
