|The Father's message part 1B
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
confidences in 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 to him.
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 goodness.
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 he rewarded, one day,
for having believed in Me, even without having seen Me!
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 see Me!
I want men to be able to know Me and to feel that I am close to each one of them.
Remember, 0 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 familiar
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 would 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
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, every day,
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 like you?
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 like Me.
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. Oh, 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 future!
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 work 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 fulfilment.
To be known, loved and honoured with a special devotion, I do not ask for anything
I desire only this:
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 the
texts in the Holy Scriptures.
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 same
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 practice.
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 Saviour.
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 My glory.
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, 0 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
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 Saviour.
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 Saviour!"
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.
