OCTAVE OF CONSACRATION TO GOD THE FATHER OF ALL HUMANITY

 

 

 

At the end you can download a printable version.

Note from the site: If you are really interested in knowing more about God the Father, look inside this web site, you will be surprised when you realize that He is speaking to His children, now, in these times. How is He? Does He look like Jesus? Is He on occasion also a poet that speaks in a figurative language? He is more preoccupied and attentive of each one of us, than what you could imagine. He is vigilant, so be careful with your behavior because He is watching us all the time, at each instant! This octave, the Chaplet and the Rosary to God the Father that we have in this site are of great importance. Our Father has said it. He is very hurt by the bad use which man has made of his liberty. It is very good that His children consecrate to Him. In a certain way, we are also appeasing his justice which we are afraid is already too close.

Reflections

1. This octave pretends to establish in our lives the paternal role of our God. Let’s remember when Mary Magdalene finds Jesus resurrected and He tells her: Jesus said to her, "Do not hold me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brethren and say to them, I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God." (John 20: 17)

2. Mistakenly, it is believed that God the Father is a God of fear and awe, of strictness, and of punishment. Because of that, let’s rediscover his tenderness and mercy in everything He says and does.

3. Let’s understand his great zeal and love for the souls He creates. Let’s understand that the only thing he desires is to receive us in his eternal home. His children, us, are precious for his heart.

4. If we are His only desire, why aren’t we yearning for Him?

5. He wants to unite us on earth in a harmonious unity and fraternity.

6. He wants us to understand the treasures he has given us: Jesus, Mary, the Church, the Sacraments, Paradise, Eternal Life, etc.

7. We have to pass by this beginning of the Century, crossing the threshold of the house which signals the return to the Home of the Father.

8. Frequently, modern life, with the anonymity and individualism that prevails, makes us think that we are alone and abandoned, but we are not. Our Father, whom we still do not know, has great plans for us, but we don’t make easy his coming. To get closer to Him let’s say yes, but with faith, trust, and humility.

9. When do we think of that He also would be very happy to have us in his protecting arms? When do we desire more intimacy with Him?

10. But we don’t know him, we prefer our things; we appreciate our will more than his wisdom and direction. Let’s open up to His Will! He calls us now and always. Isn’t it now the moment to refresh ourselves by resting in His Heart?

11. If you want to begin to recreate in Him, repeat mentally:

“I am in the heart of My Father, His home, where He has placed me. I don’t want to move away from his Kindness and Mercy. No longer will I cross the door to leave. With Him I am safe in the Home of the Lord. MY FATHER!”

12. To feel Him even closer, let’s stop to think and let’s try to listen the His heart beats which mark harmonic beats of love. And tells us: “It is the time of meeting with your FATHER”. We were apart for a long time… but for the meeting we must prepare, be in silence, open our arms, and come out of the night to see the Light.

13. Our objective: RESCUE SOULS.

LET’S RETURN TO THE PATERNAL HOME

THE CONSECRATION

(WITH ECCLESIASTICAL LICENCE)

The Octave of the Consecration starts on the first Sunday of August (but can be done anytime), preferably on a Sunday’s Eucharist, in which we will consecrate ourselves to the Most Holy Virgin Mary, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Holy Spirit with the enclosed prayers. That same day, we will pray the First Day of the Octave.

During the week you will do the corresponding days of the Octave and you will conclude on the following Sunday with the great feast of consecration to God the Father of all humanity. In other words, you begin on the first Sunday of August (Feast of God the Father) and end on the second Sunday of August. Please note, this consecration may be realized at any time of the year.

The consecrations to Jesus, Mary, and the Holy Spirit prepare our hearts to the Consecration to the Father of All Humanity.

The Octave is an act of voluntary surrender with the fundamental purpose of: Beginning the return to the House of the Father, where we will live in His Kingdom, and His Will be done in Unity, Harmony, and Fraternity.

The Consecration is done for a total of eight days (Octave) and supposes the following personal conduct:

a) Daily Mass and Communion. (Those unable to receive Communion due to serious reasons like divorce or other, please do the Spiritual Communion.)

b) Recite uninterruptedly the daily prayers during the eight days.

c) Follow the Litanies.

d) Meditate over the suggested themes in the “Minor Octaves”.

The fundamental sense is understood when you consider that when we consecrate:

1. We will be in the House of our Father.

2. God wants to live in man as if he were a live tabernacle (Sanctuary).

3. We make the free decision to Return to the Father.

4. For it, we give a true “YES”.

5. We must know how to LOVE HIM, SERVE HIM, and HONOR HIM throughout this Octave, which is totally His.

6. We must ask for His mercy for everything: Past, Present, and Future.

7. We ourselves consecrate to God the Father.

8. Mary, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, then will finish His work.

9. We, His Children, Return to the Father.

CONSECRATION TO THE MOST HOLY VIRGIN MARY

(On First Sunday)

 

All Immaculate, Most Holy Virgin Mary:

I consecrate to you and put into your hands all my existence. Accept my gift with everything within it. Accept my future with all its possibilities.

In this consecration I want to give you everything that I am and have, all that I have received from God… I give you my intelligence, will, and heart.

I place in your hands my liberty, my desires, fears, and hopes, sadness and joy. Protect my life, watch my actions, in order that, being faithful to God, I may with your help reach the salvation.

I consecrate to You my body and my senses, in order that, avoiding sin will free me from eternal condemnation. I consecrate to You my body and my senses, in order that, they will remain pure and will help me to practice the virtue. I consecrate to You my soul, in order that you will preserve it from evil. Make me participate in a Sanctity like yours; make me agreeable to Christ, the ideal of my life.

I give you my childhood, my enthusiasm and juvenile fervor; my studies, my adult life, my work, and my old age. That I never grow old in living the Faith. I give you my capacity and eagerness of loving; teach me to love as you have loved, and as Jesus wants me to love.

Most Holy Virgin Mary: I am all yours and of all I have, is yours. Shelter me and protect me as your Son (Daughter) and your possession. Oh Most Pure Virgin Mary: Free us from the flood of sin and revive in us the love to purity. Amen.

PERSONAL CONSECRATION TO SACRED HEART OF JESUS

(On First Sunday)

 

I am prostrate at your feet, My Jesus, considering the unspeakable demonstrations of love which You have given me, and the sublime lessons that You continually show me with Your Most Sacred Heart, I humbly beg you the grace of knowing you, loving you, and serving you, and as your faithful disciple to be worthy of the promises and blessings that You so generously grant to those who truly know you, love you, and serve you.

See that I am poor and humble, I need You! See that I am clumsy and need Your Divine teaching to illuminate and guide my ignorance! See that I am very weak, and fall at each moment, and I need your support so I won’t fail!

Be all to me, Sacred Heart of Jesus: Relief of my misery, Light of my eyes, Support of my steps, Remedy of my ills; rescuer of all needs.

My poor heart expects all from You. You encourage it and in many occasions invite it, as you said in Your Gospel: “Come to Me; learn from Me, ask; call…”

At the doors of your Heart I come today: I call, I ask, and I wait. Amen.

CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY SPIRIT

(On First Sunday)

 

Receive Oh Holy Spirit of Love the perfect and absolute Consecration of all my being, from now on in each one of the moments of my life and in each one of my actions, be my director, my light, my guide, my strength; fill my heart with all your love, love of the Father and of the Son.

I abandon myself without reserve to your divine operations, and always want to be docile to your holy inspirations.

Oh! Holy Spirit, deign to form me with Mary and in Mary, according to the model of your divine Jesus.

Glory to the Father Creator, Glory to the Son Redeemer, Glory to the Holy Spirit the Paraclete.

Oh Holy Spirit, source of all purity, transmit it to me through the Cross, and always guard my body and my soul pure and without blemish.

Oh Holy Spirit, let all who belong in a special way, forming your beloved family and being your apostles, to love you each day more and more, and to our last breath make other thousands of souls to love you.

Oh Holy Spirit, pour floods of graces and abundant blessings over us and over all the families of the world for our health, intentions and needs, so we are illuminated with your holy spirit, and so you will be the light that will lead us and guide us to all the places where we have to go. Amen.

1. FORMAL CROWN – (Every Day)

Preparatory prayer to invoke the Presence of God our Father:

“BELOVED FATHER”, MY CREATOR AND MY GOD: YOU promised that in all places in which Your name was honored, You would come and bless us.

Oh Father! Rise up and come and rest in us Your Children. Clothe us with salvation and let us participate of Your Goodness. Please do not deviate our faces from Your presence.

If we have found favor before Your eyes, show us Your face so we can meet you and find grace before Your eyes. Please, speak to us now as you spoke to MOSES: like a man speaks to a friend.

Let it be known on this day that YOU are the “FATHER of all Humanity”, capable of making the hearts of all to return to YOU, and that it will be known that we are YOUR Children, eager of doing YOUR Will in everything. Respond to us, LORD, answer us, so all YOUR Children can know that YOU are the only GOD and FATHER of Humanity.

Like prodigal sons, we only wish to return to YOUR HOUSE and be with YOU. As we are getting closer, FATHER, please run towards us to meet us. And in the unconditional and compassionate love that You offer us, “EMBRACE US AND KISS US”.

Like your servant MARY and JESUS, YOUR SON, WE love you FATHER and we give ourselves to YOU>

Following those who you SENT us to show us the WAY to HOME, we now, freely consecrate ourselves to YOU, saying:

With Mary, Our Mother: “Let it be to me according to your word." (Lk 1:38)

Through JESUS our GOD and Savior: “Not what I will, but what thou wilt." (Mk 14:36)

In the HOLY SPIRIT, Our GOD the Paraclete: “ABBA FATHER”.

Jesus promised that when two or three would join in His Name, He would be amongst them. So as Jesus is in YOU, and You in Jesus, and as Jesus is the vine and we are the branches: Remain with us now and through YOUR HOLY SPIRIT, live in us, as live temples.

Bless us, FATHER, and walk amongst us, YOUR CHILDREN.

And allow that YOUR GLORY descends over us always as the transforming fire of YOUR TENDERNESS, LOVE AND MERCY, now and forever. Amen.

The Sign of the Cross. In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Our Beloved GOD FATHER, I humbly ask you that in the return way to YOU, YOUR Holy Angels may protect me and guide me; that YOUR Blessed Saints in Heaven intercede for me, and that YOUR suffering souls in Purgatory pray for me, as I pray for them at this instant.

Bead 1: Hail Mary.

Bead 2: Jesus, My God and My Savior, you have loved me so much; you have died on the Cross so I could return to the House of the Father and be with Him in Heaven… You are the Way, the Truth, and the Life… Through Your Holy Eucharist please sustain me and accompany me in the Way of Return to my HOUSE… Amen.

Bead 3: Holy Spirit, My God and My Paraclete, Jesus sent you for me so I can return to the HOUSE of the FATHER, please, Purify me and Clean Me. Fill me with Your Divine Light and with Your Love so the Presence of God can live in me.

2. MAJOR OCTAVE – MEDITATIONS FOR THE DAY

 

DAY 1  Meditate on the disobedience and exile of the Children of the FATHER.

a) Adam and Eve’s decision of not wanting to do the Will of the Father. (A minute of silence)

b) Exile from Paradise which had been created for them. (A minute of silence)

c) The Father’s promise that “A Woman (MARY) would be triumphant one day crushing the head of the serpent which had deceived them, inducing them to disobedience. (A minute of silence)

At the beginning, GOD Our FATHER was with us in Paradise, which He had created for us. The Paradise of HIS Divine Will.

Seduced by Satan, Adam and Eve decided not to obey the Will of God, for this they were pushed out of Paradise, denying to them the intimate presence of God. “Nevertheless, our Father promised that at the end, a woman would defeat the evil which had caused this separation; the evilness of saying “NO” to the Will of GOD”. (Gn 2:8, 3:23)

ONE Our Father

DAY 2 Meditate on the Presence of GOD Our FATHER, in the Old Testament:

Even though the Children of GOD where thrown out of Paradise by their own decision, and not by the Will of GOD, He never abandoned them. He was always present next to them, since the beginning. In the Old Testament HE manifested HIS presence through HIS Own Voice, HIS WORDS, through his Prophets, in the Burning Bush, in the Pillar of Smoke, and in the Ark of the ALLIANCE.

After GOD liberated HIS Children from the Egyptian yoke, HE asked that the Feast of the Tabernacles be celebrated during eight days each year. HE wanted the People to remember that GOD Loved them, Had Saved them, and WAS present amidst them.

Later, when HE was present in the Ark of the Alliance, Salomon built a magnificent Temple to guard it. Then he celebrated a Feast of Dedication of eight days in preparation for having the Presence of GOD in the Temple and GOD responded by manifesting HIS Presence in a Tangible and Powerful way.

At the end of the Old Testament, the Maccabees restored the Feast of the Eight Days to Purify and Re-consecrate the Temple that had been desecrated by the pagan influence, so the Presence of GOD would live among them in the HOLY Temple. (Lv 8: 33-36; 9:1-24; 33-43. 2 Chr 7: 1-9; 2 Mc 2: 1-12.)

Meditation: Presence of GOD Our Father in the Old Testament.

ONE Our Father

DAY 3 Meditate:

1) On Mary’s FIAT, Our Loving Mother, on HER  triumphant “YES” and HER “YES” to the Will of GOD. (A few seconds of silence)

2) Consider that SHE turned into the “NEW ARK”, a LIVE Tabernacle for the new presence manifested of GOD: JESUS. (Meditate in Silence)

MARY gave HER “YES” when the Archangel Gabriel asked HER if SHE would be the MOTHER of the SON of GOD. THE HOLY SPIRIT came over HER and the force of GOD Our FATHER covered HER with HIS shadow. When SHE said “YES” to the Will of GOD, MARY, the woman, gave space to the Presence of GOD in a New Form.

She became the “NEW ARK”, a LIVE Tabernacle of JESUS, the Second Person of the MOST HOLY TRINITY, Savior of Humanity. HE, with the cooperation of HIS Mother, would restore the relationship of the Children with the FATHER. (Lk 1: 26-37)

Meditation: The FIAT of MARY Our Mother.

ONE Our Father.

DAY 4 Meditate:

1) On JESUS “YES”, Our SAVIOR, SON of GOD, to the Will of GOD. (A minute of silence)

2) How GOD Our FATHER sent us JESUS to save us and to take us back to the Divine Home. (Meditate in Silence)

JESUS gave HIS “YES” during all  HIS Life. Let’s remember HIS “YES” during the Passion in the Garden of Gethsemane: And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, "My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as THOU wilt." (Mt 26:39)

For HIS Passion, Death and Resurrection, JESUS redeemed us, defeating sin and the death that Satan introduced into the world. Through JESUS, HIS Church, and HIS Sacraments, we can return to GOD our FATHER and Have Eternal Life.

Meditation: The FIAT of JESUS Our SAVIOR.

ONE Our Father.

DAY 5 Let’s think that JESUS, after having completed HIS Mission, ask GOD Our FATHER, to send the HOLY SPIRIT, another new manifestation, revealed from GOD – Third Person of the Trinity.

 

The HOLY SPIRIT was sent for: a)  guide us in our way of return to the FATHER… b) Purify us and Cultivate us so we can convert into Living Tabernacles with the Presence of GOD. (Meditate in Silence)

 

Before going up to the FATHER, JESUS promised that HE would not leave us Orphaned. HE asked GOD Our FATHER to send us the HOLY SPIRIT. By doing it, GOD gave us the GRACE of being among us in a New Way; and not only be “WITH” US, but also “IN” us. (Jn 14: 16-17)

 

Meditation: The coming of the HOLY SPIRIT, our PARACLETE.

 

ONE Our Father.

 

DAY 6 Meditate on:

1) We are all Prodigal Sons of GOD Our FATHER. (Meditate in Silence)

2) Each one has been given the opportunity of choosing freely to return to HIM. (Meditate in Silence)

As prodigal sons of GOD Our FATHER, we receive the opportunity of taking a FREE AND SINCERE DECISION OF RETURNING TO THE HOME OF THE FATHER, which means DECIDING to abandon your own WILL, THE MUNDANE AND SINFUL LIFE, OUR WORLDLINESS AND “CONVERT OURSELVES” so as to be able to return to the PATERNAL HOME. (Lk 15: 11-24)

Meditation: THE DECISION OF THE PRODIGAL SONS OF GOD OF RETURNING TO THE HOME OF THE FATHER.

ONE Our Father.

DAY 7 MEDITATION THEME: FIDELITY

Let’s meditate: How, when we consecrate to GOD Our FATHER and say “YES” to HIS Divine WILL, without conditions, we find the way of returning Home.

In this way, we turn into living tabernacles with the PRESENCE OF GOD.

When we say “YES” to GOD Our FATHER, by accepting HIS WILL in everything, when we give ourselves completely to GOD, HE comes to live in us and we in HIM: We are in the HOME with THE FATHER.

For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, "I will live in them and move among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. (2 Co 6:16)

“Thy kingdom come. THY WILL be done, On earth as it is in heaven.” (Mt 6:10)

a) How we all are Prodigal Sons of GOD Our FATHER. (Meditate in silence)

b) How each one of us has been given the opportunity to freely elect the return to HIM. (Meditate in silence)

 

As Prodigal Sons of GOD Our FATHER, we receive the opportunity of making a FREE and SINCERE decision of returning to the HOUSE OF THE FATHER, which means DECIDING to abandon your own WILL, THE MUNDANE AND SINFUL LIFE, OUR WORLDLINESS AND “CONVERT OURSELVES”, so as to return to the PATERNAL HOME. (Lk 15: 25-32)

 

Meditation: THE “FIAT” OF THE CHILDREN OF GOD.

 

ONE Our Father.

DAY 8 MEDITATION THEME: CONSECRATION

Let’s meditate: On the eventual conclusion of our HISTORY OF SALVATION, -THE NEW JERUSALEM- Promised in the Book of REVELATION, when Heaven and Earth will be TRANSFORMED, when humanity finally will be totally re-established by GOD Our FATHER, when GOD will manifest HIS PRESENCE AND LIVE with his Children FOREVER in a new way:

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away. "And he who sat upon the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." Also he said, "Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true. "And he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of the water of life without payment. He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son.” (Rv 21: 1-7)

And when YOU come to get me in my last moment, take me to YOUR Home to be with YOU… I also ask YOU, FATHER, for the good of humanity: HAVE mercy of all YOUR Children – in their Past, Present, and Future – Bring Peace to the World, and reunite all YOUR Children around YOU.

(For an instant meditate on the Divine Creation and Praise GOD with your own words.)

 

DAY 3    MEDITATION THEME:  OFFERING

Come to him, to that living stone, rejected by men but in God's sight chosen and precious;and like living stones be yourselves built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. (1 Pt 2: 4-5)

YOU have given me EVERYTHING, FATHER… YOU have given YOURSELF. What can I offer you?

Let me offer YOU the First Fruits, the Best of everything that I do and receive.

Grant that all YOUR Children offer themselves as fruit from the Tree of Life which YOU have planted and that they have matured with the Sacrifice, Suffering and own Crosses of the Terrestrial Life.

Grant that the effect of the “NO’s” given by YOUR Children to YOUR Will, and which had as consequence the Darkness, the Discord, and the Disorder, transform in a “YES” of LIGHT of LOVE. I lift my arms in offering to YOU, FATHER. Receive in YOUR PATERNAL HEART all that YOU have given me. Amen.

(For an instant meditate on everything that you can offer to GOD OUR FATHER. Offer to Him all that He has given you – Blessings and Sufferings- and ask Him that everything transforms in HIS LOVE.)

 

 

DAY 4 MEDITATION THEME: REPENTANCE

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort.” (2 Cor 1:3)

GOOD FATHER, YOU are all LOVE, but also JUST: How can YOUR Children do Reparation for their Sins? How can they Level the Grades of YOUR JUSTICE, especially in these times?

Times in which, many of YOUR Children say NO to YOU.

Times in which, many of YOUR Children reject YOUR WILL.

Times in which, many of YOUR Children DO NOT BELIEVE IN YOU and have enthroned themselves as “gods”.

Times in which, many of YOUR Children embrace the Forbidden Fruit: Have embraced Lies and Death.

Cleanse us, LORD, with YOUR Grace and Mercy, FATHER.

Clean us with YOUR Tears and Help us to be compassionate fighters of YOUR Mercy on Earth, in a manner that the sword of Justice will be transformed in a Loving tool of YOUR Mercy. Amen.

 

 

DAY 5 MEDITATION THEME: MY LEGACY

“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received THE SPIRIT of sonship.When we cry, "ABBA! FATHER!

It is THE SPIRIT himself bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God,and if children, then heirs, heirs of GOD and fellow heirs with CHRIST, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be GLORIFIED with HIM.(Rom 8: 14-17)

 

MY MOST BELOVED FATHER:… With Reverence and Wonderment I have learned to Praise YOUR Magnificence and all YOUR CREATION. With sincere Gratitude, I have learned to be grateful for YOUR selfless Generosity. With humility and love I have learned to offer to YOU everything that YOU have given me. With a repentant but hopeful heart, I have learned to ask for YOUR Forgiveness and Tender Mercy.

 

And now that I can completely appreciate that YOU exist, that YOU are GOD, that YOU created the entire universe, that YOU created ME; I understand that in addition to those Marvels, YOU are my True FATHER and that I am to YOU a true son. My heart can’t stop the Joy; I am not only YOUR creature, I am also YOUR son. YOU created me to YOUR Likeness, so I may share with YOU eternal life. That’s how I understand “how YOU love YOUR Children so much”.

 

Nevertheless, in spite that YOU have told me this through the Holy Scriptures and through the teachings of our Church, my ears have not heard YOUR words and my heart has hardened.

 

I have gotten lost in very faraway places from YOUR VOICE, YOUR HEART, from the LOVE YOU feel for me. But now the veil has lifted, the mist has dispersed. I see, hear and understand.

 

YOU ARE truly my FATHER, and I am truly YOUR son! I am YOUR Prodigal son, who runs towards you, runs towards YOUR ARMS that Wait… I return Home, to YOU, my FATHER, where I belong. Please, keep me firm in YOUR HEART and never let me go, now and forever. Amen.

 

(Meditate on what means to have GOD as a true FATHER and be a true son. What meaning does this legacy has for you? Think of the intense joy that this implies and in the consequential responsibilities.)

 

DAY 6 MEDITATION THEME:  SAYING “YES” TO YOU

And Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her.” (Lk 1:38)“

"My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt." (Mt 26:39)

MY GOOD LOVING FATHER:

Please, grant me the Privilege of giving you my “YES”! I tell YOU “YES” FATHE in all things.

It is not a conditional “YES” to only that which is easy and comfortable.

It is not a conditional “YES” to only that will benefit me.

No, I GIVE YOU MY “YES” in everything, FATHER.

Because I know that YOU are PURE LOVE and that YOU can transform all things into PURE LOVE.

Doing YOUR WILL will never hurt me.

Doing YOUR WILL will never hurt anyone.

Doing YOUR WILL nothing will separate me from YOU.

Doing YOUR WILL can only bring me the rhythm and harmony of YOUR WILL here on Earth.

Doing YOUR WILL can only diffuse YOUR LIGHT and YOUR LOVE.

Doing YOUR WILL can only help me to Return to You.

Doing YOUR WILL can only help me to get many of YOUR Children to come closer to YOU.

When I take a step towards YOUR WILL, I mark the rhythm of Order, Rhythm and Harmony of YOUR Divine WILL.

When I take a step away from YOUR WILL, I trip in the chaos, in the disorder and in the darkness of discord… Let me hear the gentle and loving VOICE that calls me, inviting me to do YOUR Divine WILL… I AM YOURS, LORD dispose of me.

Because I know that YOUR WILL is LOVE, even when YOUR WILL could seem painful and grave.

I understand that YOUR WAYS are not always the WAYS of man. Only YOU know the destiny of everything.

Only “YOU” know the “WHY” of our Crosses.

But in spite of not understanding everything… I trust in YOU completely.

Why? Because YOU are my FATHER… and YOU LOVE me.

YOU want for me only what is good.

YOU want me to return Home, to be together with YOU. There is nothing else that YOU would like the most.

That’s why I say to YOU: “YES, FATHER!” I say: “YES TO YOU!”

I say “YES” to the Rhythm and Harmony which means to give your “YES” to YOUR HOLY WILL. Amen.

GOD Our FATHER. How is this going to change your life? How will this “FIAT” change your relationship with GOD and with your brother?

 

(Meditate on: what it means to give your “YES” to GOD Our FATHER. How will this change your life? How will this “FIAT” change your relationship with GOD and your brothers?)

DAY 7  MEDITATION THEME: FIDELITY

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” (Tm 4:7)

MY DEAR FATHER, LOVED AND LIFE:

I commit my Faith, Hope, and Love, as a precious gift, a promise of my fidelity without conditions towards YOU. YOU know I trust in the love YOU have for me.

Give me strength, courage, and perseverance so I will never doubt, I won’t get lost, and I won’t despair. Please, bless this vote and make me a brave and generous warrior… one who will combat the darkness with the sweet sword of YOUR LOVE AND MERCY.

As I know that YOU will never abandon me, I pray that I will never abandon you.

Please, hold me tenderly in YOUR HEART, and never let me go. In YOU, FATHER, I Trust!. Amen.

(Meditate on YOUR promise of fidelity to GOD Our FATHER)

What does it mean to be loyal and committed with GOD?

Do you feel committed to return to the FATHER?

Do you want to help others to do the same?

What does it mean to be a generous warrior of GOD’s Our FATHER Love and Mercy here on earth?

 

Like Saint Paul, when you die: Will you feel you fought a good battle?

 

DAY 8 MEDITATION THEME: CONSECRATION

Let’s meditate: On the eventual conclusion of our HISTORY OF SALVATION, -THE NEW JERUSALEM- Promised in the Book of REVELATION, when Heaven and Earth will be TRANSFORMED, when humanity finally will be totally re-established by GOD Our FATHER, when GOD will manifest HIS PRESENCE AND LIVE with his Children FOREVER in a new way:

“Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away. "And he who sat upon the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." Also he said, "Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true. "And he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of the water of life without payment. He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son.” (Rv 21: 1-7)

Meditation: THE COMING OF THE NEW JERUSALEM.

7. ENDING PRAYER:

 

Our BELOVED GOD FATHER, I Love You, Y Adore You, and I consecrate myself to YOU.

LORD, FATHER and Owner of our lives, save us from the rebel that lives always amidst us.

LORD, FATHER and Owner of our lives, don’t abandon us, today or in the hour of anguish. Amen.
