Short Prayers That Can Be Continuously Repeated on the Rosary Beads
From the Writings of Luisa Piccarreta
“The Little Daughter of the Divine Will”
Letters of Luisa #70
The most consoling thing for a human heart is to be able to say: “Whatever God wants, I want; whatever God does, I do.”
The Heavens open at these acclamations in order to unite Creator and creature, so that whatever one does, the other may do as well. Therefore, continue your mission, and offer it for the triumph of the Divine Will.
Letters of Luisa #15
Therefore, my daughter, here is the secret to becoming a saint: be together with Jesus, never deny Him anything, and in everything you do, even in necessary things of life – in the pains you suffer, in the prayers you say, in the work, in the food, in the sleep, say to Him from the heart: “Jesus, I want to do always your Will.” In this way, you will always keep the Fiat on your lips, in your mind, and in your heart.
Letters of Luisa #17
Oh, how happy will you feel, if in every pain you say, “This pain serves Jesus”! Then you will feel His invincible patience, filial trust, and courage of heroes. Patience, trust, courage, is the bread of the strong, the heroism of martyrs. Therefore, courage! Those who think of the past lose the present. The Lord has disposed everything: crosses, illness, state of marriage; in a word – everything. The Lord had to prepare the material in order to make of you a saint; and He has prepared enough of it. So, all you have to say and do is this: “The Heart of Jesus wants me a saint: I must become a saint!” Have we understood each other?
Letters of Luisa #47
Tell little Pio that in everything he does he should say: “Jesus, take my will and give me Yours.” Raise him holy, that he may be a true son of the Divine Will. I leave the whole family in the Divine Volition. Try as much as you can to make the Divine Will known to everyone; in this way you will obtain the grace to know It more yourselves.
Virgin Mary : Day 17
Cheer up, my child – have courage and trust in your Mama, and an iron resolution never to give life to your will. Oh, how I would love to hear from your lips: “My Mama, my will is finished, and the Divine Fiat has total empire within me.”These are the weapons which make it die continuously, and which conquer the Heart of your Mama to use all the loving arts of Mother, so that Her child may live in the Kingdom of Her Mama. For you it will be a sweet death which will give you true life, and for Me it will be the most beautiful victory I will achieve in the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Therefore, have courage and trust in Me. Distrust is of the cowardly, and of those who are not really committed to obtaining victory, and therefore they are always without weapons. But without weapons one cannot win, and is always inconstant and vacillating in doing good.
Virgin Mary : Day 30
O please! I beg you, make your Mama content! Come to live in this Kingdom so holy! And when you see that your will would want to have some act of life, come and take refuge in the safe boat of my arms, saying to Me: “My Mama, my will wants to betray me, and I deliver it to You, that you may put the Divine Will in its place.”
VOL. 33 – July 15, 1934
“And you must know that so much is My Love that I want to make My Will known, that not being able to hold it back, it pours over you and I make you say: ‘Your Fiat come, Your Will be known.’ In fact, I am who prays in you; it is not you. They are My outlets of Love, My Loving Outpourings that feel the need of Uniting Me with the creature in order to not be alone in praying for such a Good.

I too, Jesus, united with You, take the words from your very lips, and I will say, always and in everything: “Thank You for myself and for all”, in order to continue the reparations for the lack of thanksgiving.
VOL. 12 – January 31, 1918
Dissolving oneself in Jesus, to be able to say: what belongs to Jesus is mine.
I was abandoning all of myself in Jesus, when He told me: “My daughter, dissolve yourself in Me. Dissolve your prayer in Mine, so that your prayer and Mine may be one single prayer, and one would not recognize which one is yours and which Mine. Your pains, your works, your will, your love – dissolve them all in my pains, in my works, etc., so that they may mix one with the other, and form one single thing; to the extent that you may be able to say, ‘What belongs to Jesus is mine’, and I may say, ‘What is yours is Mine.’
Imagine a glass of water, which is poured into a big container of water. Would you be able to distinguish, afterwards, the water of the glass from the water of the container? Certainly not. Therefore, for your greatest gain and my highest contentment, repeat often in whatever you do: ‘Jesus, I pour this into You, so that I may do not my will, but Yours’, and immediately I will pour my acting into you.”
VOL. 25 – December 8, 1928
How could all Creation not celebrate? In fact, up until then, man had been the disorder among all created things; no one had had the courage, the heroism, to say to his Creator: ‘I do not want to know my will – I give it to You as gift; I want your Divine Will alone as life.’
Fiat, Fiat, Fiat – Come Divine Will come suffer in me
VOL. 19 – April 28, 1926
Pains were always doubled in Her, because my pains were Hers – more than Her own pains. Besides, my wisdom did not change direction with my Mama; in each pain She was to receive, I always asked Her whether She wanted to accept it, in order to hear that ‘Fiat’ being repeated to Me in each pain, in each circumstance, and even in each heartbeat of Hers. That ‘Fiat’ resounded so sweet, gentle and harmonious to Me, that I wanted to hear It being repeated in every instant of Her life.
This is why I would always ask Her: ‘Mama, do you want to do this? Do you want to suffer this pain?’ And my Fiat would bring Her the seas of the goods It contains, and would make Her understand the intensity of the pain She was accepting. This understanding, through divine light, of that which, step by step, She was to suffer, gave Her such martyrdom as to infinitely surpass the struggle which creatures suffer. In fact, since the seed of sin was missing in Her, the seed of the struggle was missing, and so my Will had to find another device, that She might not be inferior to the other creatures in suffering, because, having to acquire by justice the right of Queen of Sorrows, She was to surpass in suffering all creatures together.
VOL. 20 – October 17, 1926
And in seeing that your littleness cannot obtain a kingdom so great, you go through all of my works, wherever an act of my Will is present, doing its office, and you make my own Fiat say: ‘Let your Kingdom come. O please, let It be known, loved and possessed by the human generations.’ A Divine Will that prays together with Our works, and together with Its little daughter, is the greatest portent. It is a power equal to Ours that prays, and it is impossible for Us not to grant what it asks. How holy, how pure, noble and fully Divine is the Kingdom of Our Will – without a shadow of what is human. Our own Fiat will be Its basis, Its foundation and Its depth, which extending below, in the midst and above these children of the celestial family, will render their step firm, and the Kingdom of my Will unshakeable for them.”
VOL. 23 – December 8, 1927
You would be too ungrateful; to be daughter of my Divine Will and not to have your dwelling within the properties of the One who generated you, would be not to love the One who gave you birth with so much love, and not to recognize the riches of the One who generated you. So, this is the reason for the necessity you feel to go around in the whole Creation – because it is your own thing, and the One who generated you calls you with His electric wire of light and of love to enjoy and to love that which is His and yours; and He enjoys hearing you repeat your repeated refrains: ‘May the Kingdom of your Fiat come upon earth’.”
VOL. 11 – October 2, 1913
Then, having received Communion, I was saying to Jesus, ‘I love You’, and He told me: “My daughter, do you really want to love Me? Say: Jesus, I love You with your Will. And since my Will fills Heaven and earth, your love will surround Me everywhere, and your ‘I love You’ will resound up there in the Heavens, and down to the bottom of the abysses. So, if you want to say: ‘I adore You, I bless You, I praise You, I thank You’, you will say it united with my Will, and you will fill Heaven and earth with adorations, benedictions, praises, thanksgiving – in my Will. These are simple, easy and immense things.
VOL. 17 – February 22, 1925
I was thinking about the Holy Divine Will, and praying to my adorable Jesus that, by His goodness, He would give me the grace to fulfill His Most Holy Will in everything. And I said: ‘You who love and want that your Will be done, help me, assist me, and feed me your Will in every instant, so that nothing else may have life in me.”
VOL. 36 – November 13, 1938
My flight in the Divine Volition continues. I can’t do without It, I would feel as if I myself were killing my own soul.
VOL. 25 – December 25, 1928
It would be too hard for Me, on this day, not to render one who lives in my Divine Will happy, not to give you my first kiss and tell you ‘I love you’ as a requital of yours, and, clasping you tightly to my little Heart, make you feel my heartbeats that unleash fire, and would want to burn everything which does not belong to my Will, while your heartbeat, echoing within mine, repeats for Me your pleasant refrain: ‘May your Will reign on earth as It does in Heaven’. Repeat it always, if you want to render Me happy and calm my baby crying. Look – your love has prepared for Me the gold cradle, and the acts in my Divine Will have prepared for Me the little garment of light. Aren’t you happy?”
