|The Father's message part 2A
The second part begins on 12 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 Fatter
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 Confidant.
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 and Creator.
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 eternity!
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 Father, am.
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, foreseen 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 ever!"
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 children, 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 practise 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 their Father?
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 fear.
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 heaven.
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 CHOSEN ONES.
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
fulfilment 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. Others
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 children, 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 destroyed.
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 is 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 will help them, I will lighten their burden and sweeten their hard
life. I will inebriate them with My fatherly love, to make them happy in time and
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 permanent reality.
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
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.
