“But the hour is coming, and is now here,
when true worshipers will worship the Father
in Spirit and in truth.  Indeed the Father seeks
such people to worship in Spirit and truth.”
(Jn 4:-24)

We know that Jesus is the “Way, the truth and the Life” but we must ask, the way to what?The way to the Father.  The Father is our destination, our Creator and our Father who calls us home, the Alpha and the Omega.

All of the messages given through Chris Courtis are to encourage and enable all the children of God to know, honor and love the Father and live in His Most Holy and Divine Will, and for that we need to abide in God the Father’s Most Sacred Heart.

Mary, our Mother told us in Lesson 9 in January of 2001,

“You will never abide in God’s Most Holy Will without love for The Father.  Love God the Father with all your mind, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength.”

 Jesus said on April 23, 2001.

 “My lesson today is on a sure way of living in and of doing My Most Holy Will, and that is by abiding in God My Father's Most Sacred Heart. When you abide in love, in My Father's Most Sacred Heart, you are attached to one single Will alone and that is the Will of the Father who has sent Me. To be one in love in My Father's Heart also means to be one in His Will. Make no mistake about this, My little ones, God My Father's Heart does exist. It was only through God's Most Loving Heart, love beating with His Most Holy Will, that everything did come into being.”

God the Father told us in His first appearance April 13, 2002

 “Today my message is this: I wish that all people throughout the world have a devotion to My Sacred Heart.”… I wish for everyone to know the eight promises that I shall give for those who have a devotion to My Sacred Heart.

  1. I shall establish peace within all families and the father shall be the head of that household.

  2. I will bring peace to a nation who so consecrates themselves to My Sacred Heart, or in your case, state.

  3. I shall also protect these children from war, poverty and hunger. Plus, I shall  establish peace within that community who has a devotion to My Sacred Heart.

  4. I shall give to you My Divine and Most Holy Will. The people who consecrate themselves to the Sacred Heart of Me, their Father, shall learn to live and pray in The Divine Will. This gift I can give to anyone I choose and I freely choose to dispose this gift upon you. When you consecrate yourselves to My Sacred Heart, you shall live, know, and do My Will.

  5. Those who consecrate themselves to My Sacred Heart shall also be consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to Mary, your most holy mother. They shall not be My people, but they shall be My children, sons and daughters of God most high. As Jesus is My Beloved Son in whom I am well pleased, and as Mary is My beloved daughter, so shall you all be sons and daughters of God, a beloved royal family, consecrated to My Most Sacred Heart.

  6. I shall establish within each person the grace of loving Me, their Father, with all their heart, with all their soul, and with all their minds. If anyone comes to Me and consecrates his soul and his life to My Sacred Heart, I shall fill him with the burning desire of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit shall imprison his heart with fire and it shall be set on fire for love of Me and their mother Mary, and Jesus, My Son. I shall do this to every heart that consecrates themselves to me, the Sacred Heart of the Father.

  7. I will answer your prayers powerfully and unexpectedly, but know this, you shall gain the gift of the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Therefore, if it is not in The Kingdom of the Divine Will for you to ask of this, then it shall not be given unto you. If you are led by the Spirit and with the Divine Will, I will answer your prayers.

  8. I will heal the hearts of My children. I see your pain. I see your sufferings, and if I in all My glory can cry in seeing you suffer, then know that I rejoice in healing men’s hearts. Come to Me, My children who suffer and who cry, and I shall heal your heart and make it like unto My Heart, rich in love and mercy and free from wounds and injuries. Just a touch of the Golden Love from My Heart is enough to heal your hearts of pain forever.

This is what I have come to say today. The eight promises I shall give to all nations, all kindred and tongues and people who accept My Heart as the Sacred Heart of the Father. “

How Do We Abide In His Fatherly Sacred Heart?

Devotion to the Fatherly Sacred Heart of God the Father is essentially a relationship of love.  We acknowledge that God loves us, we accept that love, and we love Him back Many instructions for abiding in the Sacred Heart of God the Father have been given through Chris.

God the Father said in His first message April 13, 2001, we are to receive Him in the Blessed Sacrament.  He said,

“…when you receive Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, you receive Me, your Father, as well.  I AM THAT I AM. I am one with my Son and My Son is one with Me as is our Holy Spirit. Therefore, we are all one, one in Will, one in love, bound to each other in the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity.  When you receive the Eucharistic Jesus, not only do you receive My Son, but you receive ME. …I dwell in you, and so does Our Holy Spirit.”

Then On April 32, 2001 Jesus said:

“But, My little ones, you must ask yourselves how can I be united to the Father’s Sacred Heart?

“First, you must love God the Father with all your heart and ask Him to grace you with love so that you may grow in God's love. 

Second, you must love Him back. God the Father, just like Me His Son, waits for you to be affectionate with Us. Be affectionate with Us, tell God the Father that you love Him and that you wish to do His Will and thus live in It, for you cannot hope to live in Our Most Holy Will when you can't even do what He asks of you. I say to you this, you cannot be united to living in God's Most Holy Will without being united to His Most Sacred Heart. 

The last and final thing you must do is consciously consecrate your heart to the Sacred Heart of the Father. Pray simply and ask Him thus ; 

Our Father who resides in Heaven, I approach your throne and ask that You give to me the grace of abiding within your Most Sacred Heart. I promise to love Thee and to adore Thee with all my heart and soul. O Mighty Father, love me and let me love you so that I may also be one in Your Most Holy Will. You, O God, are my Creator and my Father of Mercy and Love, and it is in Thee that I do trust that Thy love becomes my own, and that Thy Will becomes my will, and that I may live and do Thy Will, not just in this world, but in the next. O Most Merciful and Loving Heart of the Father, I love and trust in Thee through Your Son Jesus Christ. Amen”

Our Lady asked us to pray the following prayers throughout our day to help us abide in the Fatherly Sacred Heart of God the Father.

  • The prayer from the consecration of the Mass - “Through Him, with Him, in Him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, Almighty Father now, and forever, Amen.”

  • Then of course, there is the Our Father.  Jesus asked that we say it three times in sequence every day.  He said, “This prayer is the most important and powerful of all prayers, because in it I ask that God's Most Holy Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven. Hence you are the ones who must carry out the Will of My Father by living in My Most Holy Will.  The Will of God, My Father's Kingdom, truly comes to be established in you.”

  • Our Lady also asked that we pray throughout the day, “I love you Father, and I give myself to you.”

Jesus has given us a prayer imploring the help of the Holy Spirit to love God more.

Because we are weak and need the help of the Holy Spirit to love as we should, Jesus gave us this prayer in which we ask the Holy Spirit to imprison us with the Most Passionate Flame of Love:

O Mighty Father, I wish to love you more.
O Mighty Father, I wish to love Your Son Jesus Christ more.
O Mighty Father, I wish to love Your Holy Spirit more.
Send to me, O Mighty Father, the Holy Spirit of Fire and Love,
To consume my heart with the Most Passionate Flame of Love
for You and Your Son.
Come, O Holy Spirit, sent by the Father, come and consume in love, which is everlasting, Amen.

Another devotion helping us to abide in the Sacred Heart of the Father is the Chaplet of the Father of All Mankind which was given to Barabara Centelli in 1996.  In their messages to Chris, Our Lady recommended praying this chaplet daily and Jesus said that if we want to please Him, we would pray one formal Chaplet of God the Father once a week as a means of meditating on the Divine Order of Creation, Redemption, and Sanctification.  The response in this chaplet is, “Father, I love you and I give myself to you.”
