The softness of the Father

God the Father is the Alpha and Omega of the universe. Yet His softness is remarkable and  tenderness unmistakable, in His daily intimate dealings with His adoptive children. Gently caressing, infinitely loving, and firmly reassuring are His responses every time that we turn to Him with genuineness of heart and mind. Our Father listens patiently to our endless questions and ramblings, answering them all in and through His perfect Fatherhood, albeit in different ways and at unexpected times. In fact the manner and time in which our most beloved Father responds to us can be safely said to never fail to amaze. The firm timbre of His Voice soothingly envelops and gathers the core of our beings into the profound recesses of His Divine Heart, relieving us of all our worries and lovingly refreshing us by kissing our souls, before letting us fly out again into the midst of our daily duties.

Such is the softness, tenderness, and gentleness that we can expect to experience in our relationship with our Heavenly Father, when we decide to approach and become truly intimate with Him. An intimacy that becomes more deeply experienced, the more we approach Him with simplicity. The child-Parent relationship that our Father wants so urgently to institute with each one of us is, in fact, a relationship of profound two-way knowing and living, that can never be provided or paralleled by anyone earth. This is one of the graces that Our Father has reserved for these times, as part of the fullness of graces. It is freely available to all those who genuinely desire to become true children of God.
