The Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord

We go to the Throne of God linked to mama Luisa in The Most Holy Divine Will united with the Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Immaculate Heart of Mary and we pray with all souls past, present and future, with all the Angels and Saints with one voice speaking for all of Creation:

Link to The Feast of the Annunciation in the Divine Will

The Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord


+++ “Fiat Mihi +++

Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.”

 

John 6:38

“I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me. ”

Matthew 7:21

“”Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.”

Psalms 40: 7 – 11

Then I said, “Lo, I come; in the roll of the book it is written of me;

I delight to do thy will, O my God; thy law is within my heart.”

I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great

congregation; lo, I have not restrained my lips, as thou

knowest, O LORD.

I have not hid thy saving help within my heart, I have spoken of

thy faithfulness and thy salvation; I have not concealed thy

steadfast love and thy faithfulness from the great congregation.

Do not thou, O LORD, withhold thy mercy from me, let thy

steadfast love and thy faithfulness ever preserve me!

 Hebrews 10: 4 – 10

For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should

take away sins.

Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, “Sacrifices

and offerings thou hast not desired, but a body hast thou prepared for me;

in burnt offerings and sin offerings thou hast taken no pleasure.

Then I said, `Lo, I have come to do thy will, O God, ‘as it is

written of me in the roll of the book.”

When he said above, “Thou hast neither desired nor taken pleasure

in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin

offerings” (these are offered according to the law),

then he added, “Lo, I have come to do thy will.” He

abolishes the first in order to establish the second.

And by that will we have been sanctified through

the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

Luke 1: 26 – 38

In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from

God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,

to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was

Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s

name was Mary.

And he came to her and said, “Hail, full of grace, the

Lord is with you!”

But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and

considered in her mind what sort of greeting this

might be.

And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary,

for you have found favor with God.

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and

bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.

He will be great, and will be called the Son of the

Most High; and the Lord God will give to him the

throne of his father David,

and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever;

and of his kingdom there will be no end.”

And Mary said to the angel, “How shall this be,

since I have no husband?”

And the angel said to her, “The Holy Spirit will

come upon you, and the power of the Most High

will overshadow you; therefore the child to be

born will be called holy, the Son of God.

And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her

old age has also conceived a son; and this is the

sixth month with her who was called barren.

For with God nothing will be impossible.”

And Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of

the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”

And the angel departed from her.

“Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will.”
We link our “Fiat” with mama Luisa and The Blessed Mother’s “Fiat Mihi,” 
in The Most Holy Divine Will,
all for the Love, Praise, Glory, and Honor to Our Triune God
and for the salvation of souls!

The Virgin Mary In the Kingdom of the Divine Will

Day Nineteen

The Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will.

The Doors of Heaven open, the Sun of the Eternal Word

 places Himself on the lookout. He sends His Angel

 to tell the Virgin that the Hour of God has come. 

Annunciation1

The soul to her Celestial Mama:

Holy Mama, here I am again on the knees of my Mama.  I am your child, who wants to be fed the food of your most sweet word, which brings me the balm to heal the wounds of my miserable human will.  My Mama, speak to me; let your powerful words descend into my heart and form a new creation, in order to form the seed of the Divine Will in my soul.

Lesson of the Sovereign Queen:

Dearest child, this is precisely the purpose for which I love so much to let you hear the celestial secrets of the Divine Fiat, the portents It can operate where It reigns completely, and the great harm of one who lets himself be dominated by the human will: that you may love the Divine Will, to let It form Its throne within you, and abhor the human will, to make of it the footstool of the Divine Will, keeping it sacrificed at Its divine feet.

Now, my child, listen to Me: I continued my life in Nazareth; the Divine Fiat continued to expand Its Kingdom within Me. It used my littlest acts, even the most indifferent ones – such as keeping the little house in order, starting the fire, sweeping, and all the tasks that are usually done in the families to let Me feel Its life palpitating in the fire, in the water, in the food, in the air I breathed – in everything.

And investing them, It formed over my little acts seas of light, of grace, of sanctity; because wherever It reigns, the Divine Will has the power to form, from little trifles, new heavens of enchanting beauty. In fact, being immense, It does not know how to do small things, but with Its power It gives value to trifles, and makes of them the greatest things, such as to astonish Heaven and earth.  Everything is holy, everything is sacred, for one who lives of Divine Will.

Now, child of my Heart, pay attention to Me and listen: several days before the descent of the Eternal Word upon earth, I could see Heaven opened and the Sun of the Divine Word at Its doors, as though to look out for the one upon whom He was to take His flight, to render Himself Celestial Prisoner of a creature. Oh! how beautiful it was to see Him at the doors of Heaven, as though on the lookout, and to spy the fortunate creature who was to host her Creator! The Sacrosanct Trinity no longer looked at the earth as alien to Them, because there was little Mary who, by possessing the Divine Will, had formed the Divine Kingdom in which He could descend safely, as in His own dwelling, in which He would find Heaven and the many suns of the many acts of Divine Will done in my soul. The Divinity overflowed with love, and removing the mantle of justice which, for so many centuries, They had kept with creatures, They covered Themselves with the mantle of infinite mercy, and decreed among Themselves the descent of the Word, and were in the act of sounding the hour of the fulfillment. At this sound, Heaven and earth were astounded, and all stood at attention, to be spectators of such a great excess of love, and a prodigy so unheard-of.

Your Mama felt ignited with love, and echoing the love of my Creator, I wanted to form one single sea of love, so that the Word might descend upon earth within it.  My prayers were incessant, and while I was praying in my little room, an Angel came, sent from Heaven as messenger of the great King.  He came before Me, and bowing, he hailed Me“Hail, O Mary, our Queen; the Divine Fiat has filled You with grace. He has already pronounced His Fiat – that He wants to descend; He is already behind my shoulders, but He wants your Fiat to form the fulfillment of His Fiat.”

At such a great announcement, so much desired by Me – although I had never thought I would be the chosen one – I was stupefied and hesitated one instant. But the Angel of the Lord told Me: “Do not fear, our Queen, for You have found grace before God. You have conquered your Creator; therefore, to complete the victory – pronounce your Fiat.”

I pronounced my Fiat, and – oh! marvel – the two Fiat fused together and the Divine Word descended into Me. My Fiat, which was endowed with same value as the Divine Fiat, from the seed of my humanity, formed the tiny little Humanity which was to enclose the Word; and the great prodigy of the Incarnation was accomplished.

Oh! power of the Supreme Fiat – You raised Me so high as to render Me powerful, to the point of being able to create within Me that Humanity which was to enclose the Eternal Word, whom Heaven and earth could not contain. The heavens were shaken, and all Creation assumed the attitude of feast; and exulting with joy, they peeked over the little house of Nazareth, to give homages and obsequies to the Creator made Man; and in their mute language, they said: “Oh! prodigy of prodigies, which only a God could do. Immensity has made itself little, power has rendered itself powerless, His unreachable height has lowered itself deep into the abyss of the womb of a Virgin, and at the same time, He is little and immense, powerful and powerless, strong and weak.”

My dear child, you cannot comprehend what your Mama experienced in the act of the Incarnation of the Word. All pressed upon Me and awaited my Fiat, I could say, omnipotent.

Now, dear child, listen to Mehow much you should take to heart doing the Divine Will and living of It. My power still exists – let Me pronounce my Fiat over your soul. But in order to do this, I want your own. A true good cannot be done with one alone; the greatest works are always done between two. God Himself did not want to do it on His own, but wanted Me together with Him to form the great prodigy of the Incarnation; and in my Fiat and in His, the life of the Man-God was formed, the destiny of mankind was restored, Heaven was no longer closed; all goods were enclosed between the two Fiat.  Therefore, let us pronounce them together: “Fiat, Fiat”, and my maternal love will enclose in you the life of the Divine Will.

Enough for now; tomorrow I will wait for you again, to narrate to my child the continuation of the Incarnation.

The soul:

Beautiful Mama, I feel stupefied in hearing your beautiful lessons. O please! I pray You to pronounce your Fiat over me; and I will pronounce my own, so that that Fiat, for which You so much yearn to reign as life in me, may be conceived in me.

Little Sacrifice:

Today, to honor Me, You will come to give the first kiss to Jesus, and will say to Him, as many as nine times, that you want to do His Will.  And I will repeat the prodigy of making Jesus be conceived in your soul.

Ejaculatory Prayer:

Powerful Queen, pronounce your Fiat, and create in me the Will of God.

Remember This From 1989

From the Marin Movments of Priests


406     June 13, 1989   Dongo (Como, Italy)

Anniversary of the Second Apparition at Fatima

The Beast Like a Lamb

“Beloved sons, today you are calling to mind my second apparition, which took place in the humble Cova da Iria in Fatima, on June 13, 1917.  Even as of then I foretold to you that which you are living through in these times.  I announced to you the great struggle between me, the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and the huge Red Dragon, which has brought humanity to live without God.

I also foretold to you the subtle and dark work, carried out by Freemasonry with the purpose of separating you from the observance of the Law of God and thus making you victims of sins and of vices.

Above all, as Mother, I have wanted to warn you of the grave dangers which threaten the Church today, because of the many and diabolical attacks which are being carried out against it to destroy it.

To attain this end, there comes out of the earth, by way of aid to the Black Beast which arises out of the sea, a beast which has two horns like those of a lamb.

The lamb, in Holy Scripture, has always been a symbol of sacrifice.  On the night of the exodus, the lamb is sacrificed, and, with its blood, the doorposts of the houses of the Hebrews are sprinkled, in order to remove them from the punishment which on the contrary strikes all the Egyptians.  The Hebrew Pasch recalls this fact each year, through the immolation of a lamb, which is sacrificed and consumed.  On Calvary, Jesus Christ sacrifices Himself for the redemption of humanity; He Himself becomes our Pasch and becomes the true Lamb of God who takes away all the sins of the world.

f   The beast has on its head two horns like those of a lamb.  To the symbol of the sacrifice, there is intimately connected that of the priesthood: the two horns.  The high priest of the Old Testament wore a headpiece with two horns.  The bishops of the Church wear the mitre with two horns to indicate the fullness of their priesthood.

The black beast like a leopard indicates Freemasonry; the beast with the two horns like a lamb indicates Freemasonry infiltrated into the interior of the Church, that is to say, ecclesiastical Masonry, which has spread especially among the members of the hierarchy.  This masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church.  If the task of Masonry is to lead souls to perdition, bringing them to the worship of false divinities, the task of ecclesiastical Masonry on the other hand is that of destroying Christ and his Church, building a new idol, namely a false christ and a false church.

h  Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God; He is the Word incarnate; He is true God and true Man because He unites in his divine Person human nature and divine nature.  Jesus, in the Gospel, has given his most complete definition of Himself, saying that He is the Truth, the Way and the Life.

  Jesus is the Truth, because He reveals the Father to us, speaks his definitive word to us, and brings all divine revelation to its perfect fulfillment.

j   Jesus is the Life, because He gives us divine life itself, with the grace merited by Him through redemption, and He institutes the sacraments as efficacious means which communicate grace.

k  Jesus is the Way which leads to the Father, by means of the Gospel which He has given us, as the way to follow to attain salvation.

l   Jesus is the Truth because it is He — the living Word — who is the font and seal of all divine revelation.  And so ecclesiastical Masonry works to obscure his divine word, by means of natural and rational interpretations and, in the attempt to make it more understandable and acceptable, empties it of all its supernatural content.  Thus errors are spread in every part of the Catholic Church itself.  Because of the spread of these errors, many are moving away today from the true faith, bringing to fulfillment the prophecy which was given to you by me at Fatima: ‘The times will come when many will lose the true faith.’  The loss of the faith is apostasy.  Ecclesiastical Masonry works, in a subtle and diabolical way, to lead all into apostasy.

m Jesus is the Life because He gives grace.  The aim of ecclesiastical Masonry is that of justifying sin, of presenting it no longer as an evil but as something good and of value.  Thus one is advised to do this as a way of satisfying the exigencies of one’s own nature, destroying the root from which repentance could be born, and is told that it is no longer necessary to confess it.  The pernicious fruit of this accursed cancer, which has spread throughout the whole Church, is the disappearance everywhere of individual confession.  Souls are led to live in sin, rejecting the gift of life which Jesus has offered us.

Jesus is the Way which leads to the Father, by means of the Gospel.  Ecclesiastical Masonry favors those forms of exegesis which give it a rationalistic and natural interpretation, by means of the application of the various literary genres, in such a way that it becomes torn to pieces in all its parts.  In the end, one arrives at denying the historical reality of miracles and of the resurrection and places in doubt the very divinity of Jesus and his salvific mission.

After having destroyed the historical Christ, the beast with the two horns like a lamb seeks to destroy the mystical Christ which is the Church.  The Church instituted by Christ is one, and one alone: it is the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church, founded on Peter.  As is Jesus, so too is the Church founded by Him which forms his Mystical Body, truth, life and way.

The Church is truth, because Jesus has entrusted to it alone the task of guarding, in its integrity, all the deposit of faith.  He has entrusted it to the hierarchical Church, that is to say, to the Pope and to the bishops united with him.  Ecclesiastical Masonry seeks to destroy this reality through false ecumenism, which leads to the acceptance of all Christian Churches, asserting that each one of them has some part of the truth.  It develops the plan of founding a universal ecumenical Church, formed by the fusion of all the Christian confessions, among which, the Catholic Church.

q  The Church is life because it gives grace, and it alone possesses the efficacious means of grace, which are the seven sacraments.  Especially it is life because to it alone is given the power to beget the Eucharist, by means of the hierarchical and ministerial priesthood.  In the Eucharist, Jesus Christ is truly present with his glorified Body and his Divinity.  And so ecclesiastical Masonry, in many and subtle ways, seeks to attack the ecclesial devotion towards the sacrament of the Eucharist.  It gives value only to the meal aspect, tends to minimize its sacrificial value, seeks to deny the real and personal presence of Jesus in the consecrated Host.  In this way there are gradually suppressed all the external signs which are indicative of faith in the real presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, such as genuflections, hours of public adoration and the holy custom of surrounding the tabernacle with lights and flowers.

r   The Church is way because it leads to the Father, through the Son, in the Holy Spirit, along the way of perfect unity.  As the Father and the Son are one, so too must you be one among yourselves.  Jesus has willed that his Church be a sign and an instrument of the unity of the whole human race.  The Church succeeds in being united because it has been founded on the cornerstone of its unity: Peter, and the Pope who succeeds to the charism of Peter.  And so ecclesiastical Masonry seeks to destroy the foundation of the unity of the Church, through a subtle and insidious attack on the Pope.  It weaves plots of dissension and of contestation against the Pope; it supports and rewards those who vilify and disobey him; it disseminates the criticisms and the contentions of bishops and theologians.  In this way the very foundation of its unity is demolished, and thus the Church becomes more and more torn and divided.

s   Beloved children, I have urged you to consecrate yourselves to my Immaculate Heart and to enter into this, my motherly refuge, above all in order to be preserved and defended against this terrible snare.  In this way, through the act of consecration of my Movement, I have urged you to renounce every aspiration of building up a career.  Thus you will be able to remove yourselves from the strongest and most dangerous snare, made use of by Masonry in order to associate in its secret sects so many of my beloved children.  I bring you to a great love for Jesus-Truth, making you courageous witnesses of the faith; to Jesus-Life, leading you to great holiness; to Jesus-Way, asking you to be in life the Gospel alone, lived out and proclaimed to the letter.

t   Then I lead you to the greatest love for the Church.

u  I bring you to love the Church-truth, making of you strong proclaimers of all the truths of the Catholic faith, as you set yourself in opposition, with strength and courage, to all errors.

v  I make of you ministers of the Church-life, helping you to be faithful and holy priests.  Be always available for the needs of souls, lend yourselves, with generous abnegation, to the ministry of Reconciliation, and be burning flames of love and of zeal for Jesus present in the Eucharist.  In your churches may you once again hold frequent hours of public adoration and reparation to the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar.

w  I transform you into witnesses of the Church-way, and I make of you precious instruments of its unity.  For this reason, I have given you, as a second pledge of my Movement, a special unity with the Pope.  By means of your love and of your fidelity, the divine plan of perfect unity in the Church will once again shine forth in all its splendor.

Thus to the dark force which ecclesiastical Masonry is today exercising to destroy Christ and his Church, I am opposing the powerful splendor of my priestly and faithful army, so that Christ may be loved, listened to and followed by all, and that his Church may be more and more loved, defended and sanctified.

In this there shines forth above all the victory of the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and my Immaculate Heart attains its most luminous triumph.”

Humility – From the Writings of Luisa

Humility

Ah, yes, Humility draws grace,

Humility breaks the strongest chains, which are sin.

Humility surmounts any wall of division between the soul and God, and brings her back to Him.

Humility is a little plant, but always green and flowery, not subject to being gnawed by worms; nor will winds, hail or heat be able to do harm to it, or make it wither, even slightly.

Though being the littlest plant, humility produces very high branches, which penetrate even into Heaven, braiding around the Heart of Our Lord; and only the branches which come from this plant have free access into that adorable Heart.

Humility is the anchor of peace during the storms of the sea waves of this life.

Humility is the salt which spices all virtues and preserves the soul from the corruption of sin.

Humility is the little grass which sprouts along the way treaded by wayfarers; while being treaded, it disappears, but soon one can see it sprout again, more beautiful than before.

Humility is like a gentle graft, which renders the wild plant gentle.

Humility is the sunset of guilt.

Humility is the newborn of grace.

Humility is like the moon, which guides us in the darkness of the night of this life.

Humility is like that shrewd merchant who knows well how to trade his riches, and wastes not even one cent of the grace that is given to him.

Lent Meditation – 3/16

Lent-17

Volume 19 – June 20, 1926
“Ecce Homo”.  Jesus felt as many deaths for as many as were those who cried out:  “Crucify Him!”  One who lives in the Divine Will takes the fruit of the pains of Jesus.  The ideal of Jesus in Creation was the Kingdom of His Will in souls.

After going through most bitter days because of the privation of my sweet Jesus, I felt I could take no more; I moaned under a press that crushed my soul and body, and I longed for my Celestial Fatherland, in which not even for one instant would I be without the One who is all my life and my highest and only Good.  Then, when I reduced myself to the extremes without Jesus, I felt myself being filled completely with Him, in such a way that I remained like a veil that covered Him.  And since I was thinking about the pains of His Passion and accompanying Him, especially in the act in which Pilate showed Him to the people, saying, ‘Ecce Homo’, my sweet Jesus told me:  “My daughter, as Pilate said ‘Ecce Homo’, all cried out:  ‘Crucify Him, crucify Him – we want Him dead!’  And so did my very Celestial Father and my inseparable and pierced Mama, and not only those who were present, but all the absent and all generations, past and future.  And if someone did not say it with words, he said it with facts, because there was not a single one who said he wanted Me alive, and to keep silent is confirmation of what others want.

This cry of death from all was so very painful for Me; I felt as many deaths for as many as were the people who cried out:  ‘Crucify Him!’  I felt as though drowned with pains and with death; more so, since I could see that each death of mine would not bring life to each one, and those who received life because of my death would not receive all the complete fruit of my Passion and Death.  My sorrow was so great, that my moaning Humanity was about to succumb and breathe Its last; but while I was dying, with Its all-seeingness my Supreme Will made present to my dying Humanity all those who would let the Eternal Volition reign in them with absolute dominion, who would take the complete fruit of my Passion and Death.  Among them there was my dear Mother, as their head.  She took all the deposit of all my goods and of the fruits contained in my Life, Passion and Death – not even one breath of mine did She allow to be lost, nor did She fail to keep its precious fruit in Her custody.  And from Her they were to be transmitted to the little newborn of my Will and to all those in whom the Supreme Volition would have Its Life and Its Kingdom.

When my extinguishing Humanity saw the complete fruit of my Life, Passion and Death placed in safety and secured, It was able to resume and continue the course of Its sorrowful Passion.  So, it is my Will alone that brings all the fullness of my goods and the complete fruit contained in Creation, Redemption and Sanctification.  Wherever It reigns, Our works are all full of life – nothing is halved or incomplete; while where It does not reign, even if some virtues were present, everything is misery, everything incomplete, and if they produce any fruit at all, it is unripe and without maturity.  And if they take the fruits of my Redemption, they take them with measure and without abundance, therefore they grow as weak, sick and feverish; and if they do a little bit of good, they do it strained and they feel crushed under the weight of that bit of good that they do.  On the other hand, my Will empties the human will and in that void It places the divine strength and the life of good.  Therefore, one who lets It reign within herself does good without strain, and the life she contains leads her to operate good with an irresistible strength.  So, my Humanity found life in my Passion and Death, and in those in whom my Will would reign; therefore Creation and Redemption will always be incomplete until my Will has Its Kingdom in souls.”

Meditation for Lent – 3/15

Volume 11 – August 14  1915
Everything that Jesus did and suffered is act, and serves as prop on which souls can lean so as not to fall into sin and be saved.

Continuing in my usual state, Jesus came for just a little.  He was so tired, exhausted, that He Himself called me to kiss His wounds and dry His Blood, which was flowing from every part of His Most Holy Humanity.  So, after I went over all His members making various adorations and reparations, my sweet Jesus, relieved and leaning on me, told me:  “My daughter, my Passion, my wounds, my Blood, everything I did and suffered, are in continuous act in the midst of souls, as if I were operating and suffering at this very moment.  They serve Me as props on which I can lean, and as props on which souls can lean so as not to fall into sin, and be saved.  Now, during these times of scourges, I am like someone who lives up in the air, with no ground underneath, and amid continuous blows:  Justice knocks Me from Heaven, and creatures, through sin, from the earth.

Now, the more the soul remains around Me, kissing my wounds, repairing Me, offering my Blood – in a word, re-doing, herself, what I did during the course of my Life and Passion – the more props she forms so that I can lean on them and not fall, and the larger the circle becomes in which souls find support so as not to fall into sin, and be saved.  Do not get tired, my daughter, of being around Me, and of going over my wounds, over and over again.  I Myself will administer to you the thoughts, the affections, the words, so that you may remain around Me.  Be faithful to Me – times are short, Justice wants to unfold Its fury, and creatures irritate It.  It is necessary that these props  multiply more; therefore, do not fail the work.”

Volume 18 – October 4, 1925
Repeating the same good serves to form the water with which to water the seed of the virtues.  Everything that Our Lord has done is suspended in the Divine Will, in waiting, to give itself to creatures. 

I was fusing myself in the Most Holy Will of God according to my usual way, and while going around in It to place my ‘I love You’ upon all things, I wished that my Jesus would see or hear nothing but my ‘I love You’, or through this ‘I love You’ of mine.  And while repeating the singsong of my ‘I love You’, I thought to myself:  ‘It shows that I am really a little child, who can say nothing but the little story she has learned.  And then, what good comes to me by repeating ‘I love You, I love You…’ over and over again?’  But while I was thinking of this, my adorable Jesus came out from within my interior, showing my ‘I love You’ impressed everywhere in all of His Divine Person:  on His lips, on His face, on His forehead, in His eyes, in the middle of His breast, on the back and in the center of the palms of His hands, on the tips of His fingers – in sum, everywhere.  And with a tender tone, He told me:  “My daughter, aren’t you happy that none of the ‘I love You’s’ that come out of you go lost, but all remain impressed in Me?  And then, do you know what good comes to you by repeating them?  You must know that when the soul decides to do some good, to exercise a virtue, she forms the seed of that virtue.  By repeating those acts, she forms the water with which to water that seed in the earth of her heart; and the more often she repeats them, the more she waters that seed, and the plant grows beautiful and green, in such a way that it quickly produces the fruits of that seed.  On the other hand, if she is slow in repeating, many times the seed remains suffocated; and if it comes out at all, it grows thin and never gives fruit.  Poor seed, without enough water in order to grow.  My Sun does not rise over that seed, to give it fecundity, maturity and a beautiful color to its fruits, because it is not fecund.  On the other hand, by always repeating those same acts, the soul contains much water with which to water that seed; my Sun rises over that seed every time It sees it being watered; and It delights so much, knowing that it has much strength in order to grow, that It makes its branches reach up to Me; and in seeing its many fruits, I pick them with pleasure, and I rest under its shadow.

So, repeating your ‘I love You’ for Me procures for you the water with which to water and form the tree of love.  Repeating patience waters and forms the tree of patience; repeating your acts in my Will forms the water with which to water and form the divine and eternal tree of my Will.  Nothing can be formed with one single act, but with many upon many repeated acts.  Only your Jesus contains the virtue of forming all things, and the greatest things, with one single act, because I contain the creative power.  But the creature, by dint of repeating the same act, forms the good she wants to do, bit by bit.  Through habit, that good or that virtue becomes her nature, and the creature becomes the possessor of it, and it forms all of her fortune.  This happens also in the natural order.  No one becomes a teacher by having read the vowels and the consonants once or a few times, but by repeating them constantly, to the point of filling his mind, his will and his heart with all that science that is needed in order to be able to be a teacher to others.  No one feels satiated if he does not eat, bite after bite, the food that is needed in order be satiated.  No one harvests the seeds if he does not repeat, who knows how many times, his work in his little field; and so with many other things.  To repeat the same act is a sign that one loves, appreciates and wants to possess that very act which he does.  Therefore, repeat, and repeat incessantly, without ever tiring.”

Afterwards, I found myself outside of myself, and my sweet Jesus carried me around, through all those places in which, while being on earth, He had operated, suffered, prayed, and also cried.  Everything was in act – everything He had done.  And my beloved Good told me:  “My daughter, daughter of my Supreme Volition, my Will wants to make you take part in everything.  Everything you see is all the works I have done while being on earth, which my Will keeps suspended within Itself, because creatures do not dispose themselves to wanting to receive them, partly because they still do not know what I have done.  See, here are the prayers I did at nighttime, covered with bitter tears and with ardent sighs for the salvation of all.  They are all in waiting, to give themselves to creatures, in order to give them the fruits which they contain.  Daughter, enter into them, cover yourself with my tears, clothe yourself with my prayers, so that my Will may accomplish in you the effects which are in my tears, prayers and sighs.  My Will keeps, as though lined up within Itself, the pains of my childhood, all of my interior acts of my hidden life, which are prodigies of grace and of sanctity; all the humiliations, glories and pains of my public life, and the most hidden pains of my Passion.  Everything is suspended – the complete fruit has not been taken by creatures; and I am waiting for the ones who must live in my Will, so that they may no longer be suspended, but may pour themselves upon them, to give them their complete fruit.  Only the ones who must live in my Will will make my goods no longer be suspended.  Therefore, enter into my every act and pain, that my Will may be fulfilled in you.  Between you and Me I do not want suspended things, nor do I tolerate being unable to tell you what I want.  This is why I want to find my own Will in you – so that nothing may oppose what my Will Itself wants to give you.”  And while Jesus was saying this, I moved from one act of Jesus to another, and I remained as though transformed, covered with His own acts, prayers, tears and pains.  But who can say what I experienced?  I hope that blessed Jesus will give me the grace to correspond, and to fulfill His adorable Will in me, and in all.  Amen.

2nd Sunday of Lent: Transfiguration – Listen to Him

Volume 24 – April 12, 1928
Analogy between Eden and Calvary.  A kingdom cannot be formed with one act alone.  Necessity of the Death and Resurrection of Our Lord.

I was doing my round in the Divine Fiat, and was accompanying my sweet Jesus in the pains of His Passion and following Him to Calvary.

My poor mind paused to think about the harrowing pains of Jesus on the Cross; and He, moving in my interior, told me:  “My daughter, Calvary is the new Eden in which mankind was given back what it lost by withdrawing from My Will.  Analogy between Calvary and Eden:  in Eden man lost grace, on Calvary he acquires it.  In Eden, Heaven was closed to him, he lost his happiness and rendered himself the slave of the infernal enemy; here in the new Eden, Heaven is opened to him once again, he reacquires the lost peace and happiness, the devil is chained, and man is freed from his slavery.  In Eden, the Sun of the Divine Fiat darkened and withdrew, and it became always nighttime for man—symbolized by the sun that withdrew from the face of the earth during the three hours of My terrible agony on the Cross.  Unable to sustain the torment of His Creator—caused by the human will that, with great perfidy, had reduced My Humanity to that state—horrified, the sun withdrew, and as I breathed My last, it reappeared again and continued its course of light.  In the same way, the Sun of My Fiat, My pains, My Death, called back the new Sun of My Will to reign in the midst of creatures once again.

“So, Calvary formed the dawn that called the Sun of My Eternal Will to shine again in the midst of creatures.  Dawn means certainty that the sun will come out; in the same way, the dawn that I formed on Calvary assures, even though about two thousand years have passed, that it will call the Sun of My Will to reign once again in the midst of creatures.  In Eden, My Love was defeated by them; here it triumphs and conquers the creature.  In the first Eden man receives the condemnation to death of soul and body; while in the second Eden he is released from his condemnation and the resurrection of the body is reconfirmed through the resurrection of My Humanity.  There are many relations between Eden and Calvary, and what man lost there, here he reacquires.  In the Kingdom of My pains everything is given back, and the honor and the glory of the poor creature is reconfirmed by means of My pains and of My Death.

“By withdrawing from My Will, man formed the kingdom of his evils, of his weaknesses, passions and miseries; and I wanted to come upon earth, I wanted to suffer greatly, I permitted that My Humanity be lacerated, Its flesh torn to pieces, all full of wounds.  And I wanted even to die in order to form, by means of My many pains and of My Death, the Kingdom opposite to the many evils that the creature had formed for herself.

“A kingdom cannot be formed with one act alone, but with many upon many acts; and the more the acts, the greater and more glorious the kingdom becomes.  Therefore, My Death was necessary to My Love; with My Death I was to give the kiss of life to creatures, and from My many wounds I was to let all goods out, in order to form the Kingdom of goods for creatures.  So, My wounds are springs that gush with goods, and My Death is spring from which life for all gushes forth.

“And just as My Death was necessary, so was My Resurrection necessary to My Love, because by doing his will, man lost the life of My Will, and I wanted to rise again to form not only the resurrection of the body, but the resurrection of the life of My Will in it.  Had I not risen again, the creature could not have risen once again in My Fiat; she would have lacked the virtue—the bond of her resurrection in Mine, and therefore My Love would have felt incomplete.  It would have felt it could do more but was not doing it, and so I would have remained with the hard martyrdom of a love that is not complete.  If then ungrateful man does not make use of all I have done, the evil is all his own, but My Love possesses and enjoys its full triumph.”

The Hours of the Passion is not just for Lent – It should be a part of our daily routine.

June 5, 1906  Volume 6
Crosses are baptismal founts.

This morning, upon coming, blessed Jesus told me:  “My daughter, crosses and mortifications are as many baptismal founts, and any kind of cross which is dipped in the thought of my Passion loses half of its bitterness, and its weight diminishes by half.”  And He disappeared like a flash.

I continued to do certain adorations and reparations in my interior, and He came back, adding:  “What is not my consolation in seeing what my Humanity did many centuries ago being redone in you.  In fact, anything which I established that each soul should do, was done before in my Humanity.  If the soul corresponds to Me, she does again within herself that which I did for her; but if she does not, it remains done only in Me, and I feel an inexpressible bitterness.”

November 9, 1906  Volume 7
Effects of meditating continuously on the Passion.

Finding myself in my usual state, I was thinking about the Passion of Our Lord; and while I was doing this, He came and told me:  “My daughter, one who meditates continuously on my Passion and feels sorrow for it and compassion for Me, pleases Me so much that I feel as though comforted for all that I suffered in the course of my Passion; and by always meditating on it, the soul arrives at preparing a continuous food.  In this food there are many different spices and flavors, which form different effects.  So, if in the course of my Passion they gave Me ropes and chains to tie Me, the soul releases Me and gives Me freedom.  They despised Me, spat on Me, and dishonored Me; she appreciates Me, cleans Me of that spittle, and honors Me.  They stripped Me and scourged Me; she heals Me and clothes Me.  They crowned Me with thorns, mocking Me as king, embittered my mouth with bile, and crucified Me; while the soul, meditating on all my pains, crowns Me with glory and honors Me as her king, fills my mouth with sweetness, giving Me the most delicious food, which is the memory of my own works; and unnailing Me from the Cross, she makes Me rise again in her heart.  And every time she does so, I give her a new life of grace as recompense.  She is my food, and I become her continuous food.  So, the thing that pleases Me the most is meditating continuously on my Passion.”

March 24, 1913  Volume 11
The continuous thought of His Passion.

…I add that I was thinking to myself about the sweet Mama, and Jesus told me:  “My daughter, the thought of my Passion never escaped my dear Mama, and by dint of repeating it, she filled all of Herself with Me, completely.  The same happens to the soul:  by dint of repeating what I suffered, she arrives at filling herself with Me.”

September 6, 1913  Volume 11
The Hours of the Passion are the very prayers of Jesus.

I was thinking about the Hours of the Passion, which have now been written, and how they are without any indulgence.  So, those who do them gain nothing, while there are many prayers enriched with many indulgences.  While I was thinking of this, my always lovable Jesus, all kindness, told me:  “My daughter, through the prayers with indulgences one gains something, but the Hours of my Passion, which are my very prayers, my reparations, and all love, have come out of the very depth of my Heart.  Have you perhaps forgotten how many times I have united Myself with you to do them together, and I have changed chastisements into graces over the whole earth?  So, my satisfaction is such and so great, that instead of the indulgence, I give the soul a handful of love, which contains incalculable prices of infinite value.  And besides, when things are done out of pure love, my love finds its outpouring, and it is not insignificant that the creature gives relief and outpouring to the love of the Creator.”

November 4, 1914  Volume 11
The new and continuous way to meditate the Passion.

I was doing the Hours of the Passion and Jesus, all pleased, told me:  “My daughter, if you knew what great satisfaction I feel in seeing you repeating these Hours of my Passion – always repeating them, over and over again – you would be happy.  It is true that my Saints have meditated on my Passion and have comprehended how much I suffered, melting in tears of compassion, so much so, as to feel consumed for love of my pains; but not in such a continuous way, and repeated many times in this order.  Therefore I can say that you are the first one to give Me this pleasure, so great and special, as you keep fragmenting within you – hour by hour – my life and what I suffered.  And I feel so drawn that, hour by hour, I give you this food and I eat the same food with you, doing what you do together with you.  Know, however, that I will reward you abundantly with new light and new graces; and even after your death, each time souls on earth will do these Hours of my Passion, in Heaven I will clothe you with ever new light and glory.”

November 6, 1914  Volume 11
The soul who does the Hours of the Passion makes the life of Jesus her own, and does His same office.

As I continued the usual Hours of the Passion, my lovable Jesus told me:  “My daughter, the world is in continuous act of renewing my Passion; and since my immensity envelopes everything, inside and outside the creatures, from their contact I am forced to receive nails, thorns, scourges, scorns, spit and all the rest which I suffered in the Passion – and still more.  Now, at the contact with souls who do these Hours of my Passion I feel the nails being removed, the thorns shattered, the wounds soothed, the spit taken away.  I feel I am repaid in good for the evil that others do to Me, and in feeling that their contact does no harm to Me, but good, I lean more and more on them.”

In addition to this, returning to speak about these Hours of the Passion, blessed Jesus said:  “My daughter, know that by doing these Hours the soul takes my thoughts and makes them her own; she takes my reparations, prayers, desires, affections, and even my most intimate fibers, and makes them her own.  And rising up between Heaven and earth, she does my same office, and as co-redemptrix, she says with Me:  ‘Ecce ego, mitte me  [Here I am, send me] – I want to repair for all, answer for all, and impetrate good for all’.”

December 9, 1916  Volume 11
Jesus wants to find Himself and what He did in the soul.  With this intention the soul must do the Hours of the Passion and every action.

I was afflicted because of the privations of my sweet Jesus; and if He comes, while I breathe a little bit of life, I am left more afflicted in seeing Him more afflicted than I am.  He does not want to hear about placating Himself, because creatures force Him, and snatch more scourges from Him.  But while He scourges, He cries over the lot of man, and He hides deep inside my heart, almost not to see what man suffers.  It seems that one can no longer live in these sad times; yet, it seems that this is only the beginning.

Then, as I was worried about my hard and sad lot of having to be so very often without Him, my sweet Jesus came, and throwing one arm around my neck, told me:  “My daughter, do not increase my pains by worrying – they are already too many.  I do not expect this from you; on the contrary, I want you to make my pains, my prayers and all of Myself your own, in such a way that I may find in you another Me.  In these times I want great satisfactions, and only one who makes Me his own can give them to Me.  That which the Father found in Me – glory, delight, love, satisfactions whole and perfect, and for the good of all – I want to find in these souls, like as many other Jesuses that match Me.  These intentions you must repeat in each Hour of the Passion that you do, in each action – in everything.  If I do not find my satisfactions – ah, it is over for the world!  The scourges will pour down in torrents.  Ah, my daughter! Ah, my daughter!”  And He disappeared.

February 2, 1917  Volume 11
The world has become unbalanced because it has lost the thought of the Passion.

As I was in my usual state, I found myself outside of myself, and I found my always lovable Jesus, all dripping with blood, with a horrible crown of thorns, looking at me with difficulty through the thorns.  He told me:  “My daughter, the world has become unbalanced because it has lost the thought of my Passion.  In darkness, it has not found the light of my Passion which would illuminate it; and as it would make known to it my love and how much souls cost Me, it might turn to loving the One who has truly loved it; and the light of my Passion, guiding it, would put it on its guard against all dangers.  In weakness, it has not found the strength of my Passion which would sustain it.  In impatience, it has not found the mirror of my patience which would infuse in it calm and resignation; and in the face of my patience, feeling ashamed, it would make it its duty to dominate itself.  In pains, it has not found the comfort of the pains of a God which, sustaining its pains, would infuse in it love of suffering.  In sin, it has not found my sanctity which, placing itself in front of it, would infuse in it hate of sin.  Ah! man has made an abuse of everything, because in everything he has moved away from the One who could help him.  This is why the world has lost balance.  It behaved like a child who no longer wanted to recognize his mother; or like a disciple who, denying his master, no longer wanted to listen to his teachings, or learn his lessons.  What will happen to this child and to this disciple?  They will be the sorrow of themselves, and the terror and sorrow of society.  Such has man become – terror and sorrow; but a sorrow without pity.  Ah! man is getting worse and worse, and I cry over him with tears of blood!”

July 12, 1918  Volume 12
Effects of the Passion of Jesus.

I was praying for a dying soul with a certain fear and anxiety, when my lovable Jesus came and told me:  “My daughter, why do you fear?  Don’t you know that for each word on my Passion, for each thought, compassion, reparation, memory of my pains – as many ways of electric communication open between Me and the soul, and therefore the soul keeps adorning herself with as many different beauties?  She has done the Hours of my Passion, and I will receive her as daughter of my Passion, clothed with my Blood and adorned with my wounds.  This flower has grown inside your heart, so I bless it and I receive it in my Heart, as a favorite flower.”  And while He was saying this, a flower came out of my heart, and took flight toward Jesus.

October 24, 1925  Volume 18
One who thinks about the Passion of Jesus, keeps Jesus company.  But one who lives in the Divine Will, finds the Passion of Jesus in act, and repeats It within herself.

…“My daughter, thinking about my Passion, compassionating Me in my pains, is very pleasing to Me.  I feel I am not alone in my pains, but I have with Me the company of the creature, because of whom I suffer, and whom I love so much; and as I have her with Me, my suffering becomes sweeter for Me.  How hard is isolation in suffering!  When I see Myself alone, I have no one to whom to entrust my pains, nor anyone to whom to give the fruit which my pains contain; and so I remain as though drowned with pains and love.  Therefore, as my love can endure no more, I come to You, to suffer within you, and you with Me, the pains of my Passion, in act, in order to repeat what I did and suffered in my Humanity.  To repeat my Passion in act in the creature is different from one who only thinks about and compassionates my pains.  The first is an act of my Life, which takes my place in order to repeat my pains, and I feel I am given back the effects and the value of a Divine Life.  On the other hand, when one thinks about my pains and compassionates Me, it is the mere company of the creature that I feel.  But do you know in whom I can repeat the pains of my Passion in act?  In one who has my Will as center of life.

My Will alone is one single act which has no succession of acts.  This single act is as though fixed to one point which never moves; and this point is Eternity.  And while being one single act, prime act, endless act, Its circumference is so immense that nothing can escape It; It embraces everything and everyone with one single embrace, because everything starts from that prime act, as one single act.  So, the Creation, the Redemption and the Sanctification are one single act for the Divinity; and only because it is one single act, it has the power to make all acts its own, as if they were one alone.  Now, one who lives in my Will possesses this single act, and it is no wonder that she takes part in the pains of my Passion, as though in act….”

Lenten Meditation 3/8

Volume 37 – May 6, 1937
How Jesus doesn’t know what to do with a soul who does not possess Peace.  To the one who Lives in the Divine Volition God gives all His works as Gift, and even His very Life, to show her how much and in what way He wants to be Loved.

My abandonment in the Divine Will continues.  My poor mind, oppressed because of the incidents of life, too painful for me, seeks my refuge in the center of the Fiat, in which I feel as though being Reborn to New Life, rejuvenating, restored from my painful stages.  But as I soon as I move away from the center of It, my oppressions rise again, so much so that I get the just reproaches of my dear Jesus, to the point of telling me:  “My daughter, mind it, for I don’t know what to do with a soul who is not Peaceful.  Peace is My Celestial dwelling.  The little bell that calls My Will to Reign with its vibrating and sweet sounds is Peace.  Peace possesses such Powerful voices as to call the whole of Heaven, and make It stand at attention to be spectator of the beautiful conquests of the operating of the Divine Volition in the creature.  Peace puts to flight the frightening storms and makes arise the sweet smile of the Saints, the most beautiful enchantment of a Springtime that never ends.  Therefore, don’t give Me this sorrow–of not seeing you at Peace.”

So, I tried as much as I could to plunge myself in the Divine Will, to no longer feel myself, following Its Acts of Creation as well as of Redemption; and my beloved Jesus invested my intellect, and with His Creative Voice, all Love, told me:  “My daughter, leave yourself and come into My Will.  We feel the extreme need to make known where Our Love reaches for the one who Lives in It; and Our Love is so great, that We anxiously wait for her to unite herself–to identify herself with Our Works, so as to give her the right as if they were her own.  And since Our Creative Power is always in act, as she identifies herself with Us, as though renewing Our Works, We give them to her as Gift and say to her:  ‘These are your Works–do with them whatever you want.  With Our Works in your power you can Love Us as much as you want, you can give Us Glory in an Infinite Way, you can do good to whomever you want.  You acquire the right, not only of Our Works, but of He who created everything; and We take Our right over you, who are already Ours.’  How sweet are these rights of the human littleness in Our Divine Being; they are sweet and loving chains that make Us Love Our Creative work with more intense and stronger Love; and in Our emphasis of Love, We keep repeating:  ‘How beautiful she is!  She is Ours, fully Our own; and We are all hers.  There is nothing left for us to do other than to Love each other:  We will Love her with Love Eternal, and she will Love Us with Eternal Love.’”

I remained surprised, as if I wanted to doubt it; and Jesus added:  “Daughter, do not marvel–your Jesus is telling you the sheer Truth:  wanting to be Loved, I want to make known where the creature can reach and how much I Love her; and as if I were not content with Our endless Joys, We want the contentment that she may possess what We possess, and may Love Us as We can Love.  See, for the one who Lives in Our Divine Will this is almost natural:  she finds Our Fiat in act of creating the heavens, the sun, and she unites herself to that act in order to do what It does.  Our Goodness is so great, that by Our union with her We have formed our marriage together, and in Our Will We have formed the resolute act of giving heavens and sun as Gift to the creature.  With this Gift she gives Us the Glory of a heaven, stretched out; she Loves Us in every point of it; she does to the creatures the good of letting them possess and enjoy a heaven.  And since she holds the sun in her Power, she gives Us the Glory that the terrestrial globe possesses the Light; each man that remains invested by the light and heat of the sun is one more Glory that she gives Us, it is a little Love sonata that she plays for Us, that captivates Our Love to Love more.  Each plant, each fruit, each flower, fecundated and warmed by its heat, is one more cry of Glory and Love that she makes for Us.  The little bird that sings at the rising of the sun, the little lamb that bleats, are all accents of Glory and of Love that she sends to Us.  And the merit of so much good that the sun does to the earth–which is incalculable–whose merit is it?  Of the one who Lives in Our Will.  In It what is Ours is hers, and since We have no need of merits, having given her the Gift, We leave to her the meritorious part, and in exchange We want her cry of Love, always and in each thing.  The same with the good that all created things do:  the wind, the air, the water, and everything.”

On hearing this, not only was I marveled, but I wanted to raise many difficulties, and moving on to the acts of Redemption, I found myself immersed in His Pains; and my always lovable Jesus, perhaps to convince me, made Himself seen in my interior in act of suffering the painful Crucifixion.  I took part in His Pains and died together with Him.  His Divine Blood was flowing, His Wounds were open; and He, with a tender and moving tone, such that I felt my heart split, told me:  “I AM inside of you–I AM yours.  I AM at your disposal.  My Wounds, My Blood, all My Pains are yours–you can do with Me whatever you want.  Or rather, be magnanimous, be brave, act as Lover and true Imitator of Me–take My Blood to give It to whomever you want; take My Wounds to heal the wounds of sinners; take My Life to give Life of Grace, of Sanctity, of Love, of Divine Will to all souls; take My Death to make many souls who are dead in sin rise again.  I give you all the freedom–do as you please.  See to it, My daughter–I have given Myself and that’s enough.  You will make sure that everything may come back to My Glory and to make Me Loved.  My Will shall make you fly to bring My Blood, My Wounds, My Kisses, My paternal Tendernesses to My children and brothers of yours.  Therefore, do not marvel, the Divine Operating is precisely this–to constantly remain in act of repeating Its Works, to give them as Gift to the creatures.  Each one can say:  ‘Everything is mine–even God Himself is mine.’  And, O! how We enjoy seeing them endowed with Our Works–the possessors of their Creator.  These are the Excesses of Our Love–that in order to be Loved, We want the creature to find out for herself how much We Love her and the Gifts We want to give her.  Besides, with the one who Lives in Our Will, We would feel as if We were defrauding the creature, if We did not give her everything as Gift–and this We cannot do.

“Therefore, be attentive, let your soul be embalmed with Our Divine Peace–for We do not know what disturbance is–and all things will bring you the Smile, the Sweetness, the Love of your Creator.”

Lent 3/7

Isaiah 55:10-11
My word will do whatever I will.

Thus says the Lord:
Just as from the heavens
the rain and snow come down
And do not return there
till they have watered the earth,
making it fertile and fruitful,
Giving seed to the one who sows
and bread to the one who eats,
So shall my word be
that goes forth from my mouth;
It shall not return to me void,
but shall do my will,
achieving the end for which I sent it.

 

Volume 7 – November 9, 1906
Effects of meditating continuously on the Passion.

Finding myself in my usual state, I was thinking about the Passion of Our Lord; and while I was doing this, He came and told me: “My daughter, one who meditates continuously on my Passion and feels sorrow for it and compassion for Me, pleases Me so much that I feel as though comforted for all that I suffered in the course of my Passion; and by always meditating on it, the soul arrives at preparing a continuous food. In this food there are many different spices and flavors, which form different effects. So, if in the course of my Passion they gave Me ropes and chains to tie Me, the soul releases Me and gives Me freedom. They despised Me, spat on Me, and dishonored Me; she appreciates Me, cleans Me of that spittle, and honors Me. They stripped Me and scourged Me; she heals Me and clothes Me. They crowned Me with thorns, mocking Me as king, embittered my mouth with bile, and crucified Me; while the soul, meditating on all my pains, crowns Me with glory and honors Me as her king, fills my mouth with sweetness, giving Me the most delicious food, which is the memory of my own works; and unnailing Me from the Cross, she makes Me rise again in her heart. And every time she does so, I give her a new life of grace as recompense. She is my food, and I become her continuous food. So, the thing that pleases Me the most is meditating continuously on my Passion.”
