The first betrayal - Thought for the day

The first betrayal – Thought for the day

Originally posted on THE DIVINE HEART OF GOD THE FATHER:

What did Adam look like before the fall? - Response to a question

What did Adam look like before the fall? – Response to a question

The question was asked, “What did Adam look like before the fall?” The short answer is he looked a god, like the Virgin Mary is today and like we called to become again (2 P 1:4). Being full of the Holy Trinity, living completely in Them as They similarly lived in Him and with the original innocence of man, knowing no sinfulness, Adam was very beautiful and loving. So beautiful and loving, in…

What’s the Father God? - Response to a question

What’s the Father God? – Response to a question

The question was asked, “What’s the Father God?” The Father God, or as He is better known God the Father – Yhwh, Allah; the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; the God of Hagar and Ishmael – is not a what but a Who. God the Father is your Father and Creator, as He is my Father and Creator; the Father and Creator of all those who know Him and do not know Him, those who acknowledge Him as their Father…

On the icon of the Divine Heart

On the icon of the Divine Heart

Why have we been given the icon of the Divine Heart of God the Father – an icon of a heart and Person invisible in nature, in comparison to the incarnate Son of God who visibly took on our humanity?

But given the appropriateness and appeal of what I am going to speak about – the Nativity Stones Cross – and the attraction I felt towards it from the outset, even before I received and held it in my hands, I cannot help but write about it.

The Heavenly Father and ourselves

The Heavenly Father and ourselves

“There comes a time in each person’s life when they have to become true worshippers of God the Father in Spirit and in truth. For indeed, these are the kind of worshippers the Father seeks to worship Him” (Fr. Francis E. Reilly, March 2014).

How hard is it to follow the Father?

How hard is it to follow the Father?

How hard is it for humankind to follow the Father, as He so intensely desires – as He desired since the beginning of time? We only have to follow these with all their ramifications, with love in our hearts:

  1. You shall have no other gods but Me;
  2. Do not take My Name in vain;
  3. Keep holy the day of rest;
  4. Honor your parents;
  5. Do not kill;
  6. Do not commit adultery;
  7. Do not steal;
  8. Do not lie;
  9. Do not desire…
