8/07 Consecration and Feast Day for the Father of All Mankind – First Sunday in August

J_God the Father

This crowning feast day of the Holy Octave of Consecration to God Our Father serves to solemnly assemble the children of God, the ultimate purpose of which is to honor God Our Father (1) by recognizing that He is truly our Father and we are truly His children, (2) by offering Him our unconditional “Fiat,” and (3) by consecrating ourselves to Him totally. Having prepared for this solemn day and our consecration by exercising and offering the Holy Octave themes of praise, thanksgiving, offering, repentance, inheritance, Fiat, and fidelity, we now ask through the intercession of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta; Mary, our Mother; Jesus, our God and our Savior; and The Holy Spirit, our God and our Sanctifier, to guide and prepare us so that through our total consecration, we can become living temples of the indwelling Presence of God.

We also ask God Our Father on this special day (1) to allow us to cultivate and maintain a close and intimate relationship with Him, (2) to have Mercy on all His children–past, present, and future, (3) to bring His peace to the world, (4) to gather all His children to Himself, and (5) and that His Kingdom comes and His Will is done on earth as it is in heaven.
