To come to know the Father is to come to know something of the very depths of God, an aspiration which Jesus gave birth to in his disciples. "Show us the Father," one of them asked him, "and we will be satisfied." His reply took them all by complete surprise: "He who has seen me has seen the Father." It is in Jesus himself that we come to know and recognize the countenance of God the Father. This work will help us to make this discovery for ourselves. It introduces us into the mystery of the Father, and seeks to make the Father’s role in the whole of each human life known — most especially in the solicitude of his divine Providence. It underlines the meaning of prayer addressed to the Father and studies the problem of inaugurating a special liturgical feast in honor of "God, our Father." Most of all it opens our eyes to a new way of relating to him who wants to be approached, addressed and honored as our Father.
