Hasten to make known the steps of the Fiat
“If you knew how painful it is to be able to do good, placing oneself in the act of doing it, and having to keep it suspended because it is not known, waiting and waiting and longing for it to be made known so as to be relieved of the weight of the good that one wants to give—oh! how you would hasten to make known all the steps of My Fiat. More so, since they are steps that will bring, not remedies, helps or medicines—but fullness of life, of light, of sanctity and totality of goods; and My Love, gushing out and flooding the whole world, will restore the order of Creation and the dominion of My Will in the midst of the human family.” Jesus to the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta March 25, 1928
What are the pre-requisites for Catholics to receive the knowledges on the Divine Will? Surely one of the first ‘steps of the Fiat’ is total consecration to Jesus through Mary.
“Now, since Mary is of all creatures the one most conformed to Jesus Christ, it follows that among all devotions that which most consecrates and conforms a soul to our Lord is devotion to Mary, his Holy Mother, and that the more a soul is consecrated to her the more will it be consecrated to Jesus Christ.”
(St. Louis Marie de Montfort, Treatise on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary; as quoted in the Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae, #15, Bl. Pope John Paull II)
Prayer of Total Consecration
By St. Maximilian Kolbe
Immaculata, Queen of heaven and earth, refuge of sinners and our most loving Mother, God has willed to entrust the entire order of mercy to you. I, N…, a repentant sinner, cast myself at your feet humbly imploring you to take me with all that I am and have, wholly to yourself as your possession and property. Please make of me, of all my powers of soul and body, of my whole life, death and eternity, whatever most pleases you.
If it pleases you, use all that I am and have without reserve, wholly to accomplish what was said of you: “She will crush your head,” and, “You alone have destroyed all heresies in the world.” Let me be a fit instrument in your immaculate and merciful hands for introducing and increasing your glory to the maximum in all the many strayed and indifferent souls, and thus help extend as far as possible the blessed kingdom of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. For wherever you enter you obtain the grace of conversion and growth in holiness, since it is through your hands that all graces come to us from the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
V. Allow me to praise you, O sacred Virgin.
R. Give me strength against your enemies.
Prayer of Consecration to the Divine Will
By the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta
O adorable and Divine Will, here I am, before the immensity of Your Light, that Your eternal Goodness may open to me the doors, and make me enter into It, to form my life all in You, Divine Will.
Therefore, prostrate before Your Light, I, the littlest among all creatures, come, O adorable Will, into the little group of the first children of Your Supreme Fiat. Prostrate in my nothingness, I beseech and implore Your endless Light, that It may want to invest me and eclipse everything that does not belong to You, in such a way that I may do nothing other than look, comprehend and live in You, Divine Will.
It will be my life, the center of my intelligence, the enrapturer of my heart and of my whole being. In this heart the human will will no longer have life; I will banish it forever, and will form the new Eden of peace, of happiness and of love. With It I shall always be happy, I shall have a unique strength, and a sanctity that sanctifies everything and brings everything to God.
Here prostrate, I invoke the help of the Sacrosanct Trinity, that They admit me to live in the cloister of the Divine Will, so as to restore in me the original order of Creation, just as the creature was created.
Celestial Mother, Sovereign Queen of the Divine Fiat, take me by the hand and enclose me in the Light of the Divine Will. You will be my guide, my tender Mother; You will guard your child, and will teach me to live and to maintain myself in the order and in the bounds of the Divine Will. Celestial Sovereign, to your Heart I entrust my whole being; I will be the tiny little child of the Divine Will. You will teach me the Divine Will, and I will be attentive in listening to You. You will lay your blue mantle over me, so that the infernal serpent may not dare to penetrate into this Sacred Eden to entice me and make me fall into the maze of the human will.
Heart of my highest Good, Jesus, You will give me Your flames, that they may burn me, consume me and nourish me, to form in me the life of the Supreme Will.
Saint Joseph, You will be my Protector, the Custodian of my heart, and will keep the keys of my will in Your hands. You will keep my heart jealously, and will never give it to me again, that I may be sure never to go out of the Will of God.
Guardian Angel, guard me, defend me, help me in everything, so that my Eden may grow flourishing, and be the call of the whole world into the Will of God.
Celestial Court, come to my help, and I promise You to live always in the Divine Will. Amen.
In order to understand well the spirituality of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta the following requirements are necessary:
1. The groups must be formed by Eucharistic souls;
2. The groups must be devoted to the Most Holy Virgin, Mother of God;
3. They must be submitted, in everything, to the authority of the Church and especially to their own Bishop, who is the only guarantee of the Faith in the local Church;
4. All the writings that make reference to the diaries of Piccarreta, must be read and interpreted, only and solely, in the light of Sacred Scripture and of the Magisterium of the Church.

Bucci spent many years as spiritual advisor of the Association which was canonically erected on March 4, 1987 in Corato, Italy, where Luisa lived. He is currently a member of the Tribunal for the Cause for Beatification of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, which was opened on the Feast of Christ the King in 1994, in the main church of Corato by Archbishop Carmello Cassati, now emeritus, in his role as Promoter of the Faith.)

“Therefore you pray, and may your cry be continuous:
‘May the Kingdom of Your Fiat come, and Your Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.”
Jesus to Luisa – May 31, 1935
News from Padre Bucci:
Every four years, the Conference of Italian Bishops is held in Italy. There are delegations of lay persons from all over Italy who are included. At these conferences the Italian Bishops select two causes for Sainthood to imitate and follow. In October of this year, the conference will be held in Verona Italy, the previous conference was held four years earlier in Sicily. One of the two causes the Bishops have selected to imitate is the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta, the Little Daughter of the Divine Will. This may be the result of Padre Bucci sending copies of the biography of Luisa to all the Bishops in Italy.
Dear brothers and sisters in the Divine Will,
I desire to thank you to have welcomed me with affection in my visit to USA.
I hope that this meeting has been profitable for all of you and that can continue in your walk for the knowledge of the message that God has left each other through the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.
With a lot of pleasure I communicate you a beautiful news:
Few days before departing, I have met the cardinal William Keeler Archbishop Emeritus in Baltimore.
During this important meeting, I have asked to the cardinal to send a letter to Rome to solicit the good course of the cause of beatification of Luisa Piccarreta.
The cardinal Keeler has welcomed my application and on October 16 he has sent a letter to the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints in which he recommends the cause of beatification of the Venerable Luisa Piccarreta.
The cardinal has also sent me a copy of this letter.
We hope that this letter of the cardinal gives good results so that the dear Luisa both as soon as possible proclaimed Saint.
I will remember your families and you in my prayers.
God blesses you and makes you grow in the Divin Will.
Father Bernardino Bucci.
