Book of Heaven – May 31 A.D. 1931

 The tiny little house of Nazareth.

…After this, I continued my acts in the Divine Fiat, and my poor mind paused in the little house of Nazareth, where the Queen of Heaven, the Celestial King Jesus, and Saint Joseph, were in possession of and lived in the Kingdom of the Divine Will. So, this Kingdom is not foreign to the earth; the house of Nazareth, the little family that lived in It, belonged to this Kingdom and kept It in full force. But while I was thinking about this, my great King Jesus told me: “My daughter, indeed the Kingdom of My Divine Will has existed upon earth, and therefore there is the sure hope that It will return again to Its full force. Our house of Nazareth was Its true Kingdom; however, We were without peoples. Now, you must know that each creature is a Kingdom; therefore, one who lets the Divine Will reign within herself can be called a little Kingdom of the Supreme Fiat. So, she is a tiny little house of Nazareth that We have upon earth; and, though little, since Our Will is in her, reigning, Heaven is not closed for her; she observes the same laws of the Celestial Fatherland, she loves with the same love, feeds herself with the foods from up there, and is incorporated into the Kingdom of Our interminable regions. Now, in order to form the great Kingdom of Our Will upon earth, first We will make the many tiny little houses of Nazareth – that is, the souls who will want to know It in order to let It reign within themselves. I Myself, and the Sovereign Queen, will be at the head of these tiny little houses, because, We having been the first to possess this Kingdom on earth, it is Our right, which We will not surrender to anyone, to be the directors of them. Then, with these tiny little houses, repeaters of Our house of Nazareth, We will form many little states of Ours, many provinces, which, after they have been formed well, and ordered like many little Kingdoms of Our Will, will fuse together and will form one single Kingdom and one great people. Therefore, in order to have Our greatest works, Our way of acting is to begin, first alone, one on one with one single creature; when We have formed this one, We make her a channel in order to enclose in Our work two or three more creatures; then We expand, forming a small group, and then We expand it so much as to take the whole entire world. Our works begin in the isolation of God and the soul, and end by continuing their life in the midst of entire peoples. And when there is the beginning of a work of Ours, it is the sure sign that it will not die at birth; at the most, it may live hidden for some time, but then it will go out and will have its perennial life. Therefore, always forward do I want you in My Divine Will.”

St. Louis De Montfort on The Role Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saint’s of the Last Days – Feast 4/28

Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort included a chapter on Mary’s role in the last days which stressed the necessity of appealing to Her intercession in order to combat the forces of Satan.

He believes that the latter days will be marked by steadily increasing periods of persecution of Christians that will not end until the time of the Antichrist and explains Genesis 3:15 in light of these persecutions:

51. It is chiefly in reference to these last wicked persecutions of the devil, daily increasing until the advent of the reign of anti-Christ, that we should understand that first and well-known prophecy and curse of God uttered against the serpent in the garden of paradise. It is opportune to explain it here for the glory of the Blessed Virgin, the salvation of her children and the confusion of the devil. “I will place enmities between you and the woman, between your race and her race; she will crush your head and you will lie in wait for her heel” (Gen. 3:15).

52. God has established only one enmity – but it is an irreconcilable one – which will last and even go on increasing to the end of time. That enmity is between Mary, his worthy Mother, and the devil, between the children and the servants of the Blessed Virgin and the children and followers of Lucifer.

Thus the most fearful enemy that God has set up against the devil is Mary, his holy Mother. From the time of the earthly paradise, although she existed then only in his mind, he gave her such a hatred for his accursed enemy, such ingenuity in exposing the wickedness of the ancient serpent and such power to defeat, overthrow and crush this proud rebel, that Satan fears her not only more than angels and men but in a certain sense more than God himself. This does not mean that the anger, hatred and power of God are not infinitely greater than the Blessed Virgin’s, since her attributes are limited. It simply means that Satan, being so proud, suffers infinitely more in being vanquished and punished by a lowly and humble servant of God, for her humility humiliates him more than the power of God. Moreover, God has given Mary such great power over the evil spirits that, as they have often been forced unwillingly to admit through the lips of possessed persons, they fear one of her pleadings for a soul more than the prayers of all the saints, and one of her threats more than all their other torments.

He explains that in the days leading to the Antichrist, a powerful group will emerge from among the clergy which, through their devotion to Mary, will be granted special powers to fight Satan:

56. But what will they be like, these servants, these slaves, these children of Mary?
They will be ministers of the Lord who, like a flaming fire, will enkindle everywhere the fires of divine love. They will become, in Mary’s powerful hands, like sharp arrows, with which she will transfix her enemies.

58. They will be true apostles of the latter times to whom the Lord of Hosts will give eloquence and strength to work wonders and carry off glorious spoils from his enemies. They will sleep without gold or silver and, more important still, without concern in the midst of other priests, ecclesiastics and clerics. Yet they will have the silver wings of the dove enabling them to go wherever the Holy Spirit calls them, filled as they are with the resolve to seek the glory of God and the salvation of souls. Wherever they preach, they will leave behind them nothing but the gold of love, which is the fulfillment of the whole law.

59. Lastly, we know they will be true disciples of Jesus Christ, imitating his poverty, his humility, his contempt of the world and his love. They will point out the narrow way to God in pure truth according to the holy Gospel, and not according to the maxims of the world. Their hearts will not be troubled, nor will they show favour to anyone; they will not spare or heed or fear any man, however powerful he may be. They will have the two-edged sword of the word of God in their mouths and the blood-stained standard of the Cross on their shoulders. They will carry the crucifix in their right hand and the rosary in their left, and the holy names of Jesus and Mary on their heart. The simplicity and self-sacrifice of Jesus will be reflected in their whole behaviour.

He also tells us:

47. “….towards the end of the world, ….Almighty God and His holy Mother are to raise up saints who will surpass in holiness most other saints as much as the cedars of Lebanon tower above little shrubs.”

48. “These great souls filled with grace and zeal will be chosen to oppose the enemies of God who are raging on all sides. They will be exceptionally devoted to the Blessed Virgin. Illumined by her light, strengthened by her spirit, supported by her arms, sheltered under her protection, they will fight with one hand and build with the other. With one hand they will give battle, overthrowing and crushing heretics and their heresies, schismatics and their schisms, idolaters and their idolatries, sinners and their wickedness. With the other hand they will build the temple of the true Solomon and the mystical city of God, namely, the Blessed Virgin… “

57. “They will be like thunderclouds flying through the air at the slightest breath of the Holy Spirit. Attached to nothing, surprised at nothing, they will shower down the rain of God’s word and of eternal life. They will thunder against sin; they will storm against the world; they will strike down the devil and his followers and for life and for death, they will pierce through and through with the two-edged sword of God’s word all those against whom they are sent by Almighty God.”

49. “Mary scarcely appeared in the first coming of Christ… But in the second coming of Jesus Christ, Mary must be known and openly revealed by the Holy Spirit so that Jesus may be known, loved and served through her.”

Confidence, Trust and Hope in Jesus – From Letters of Luisa Piccarreta

  1. To a Religious Superior

J.M.J.A. – Fiat!!!
In Volunatate Dei! D.G.

Most Reverend Mother,

Thank you for your holy wishes and your dear souvenirs.  I don’t know how to thank you.  Good Jesus thanks you in my place, and with all my heart I return your wishes.  But do you want do know what my wish is?  That the Divine Fiat may take your will away from you and give you Its own, so as to form in you Its life, Its kingdom, and Its Heaven in your soul.  Oh, how happy you will be!  Living no longer from a human will, but from the Divine Will.  It will give you perennial peace, which is so necessary in order to form the daylight in our soul.  Disturbances, fears, little mistrusts, are the night of the soul and make her see all things as opposite to what they are.  The night hides the warmth of the Divine Sun from us, and maybe even Jesus Himself.  On the other hand, peace is the smile of the soul, and the spring which makes the little ground of our soul bloom; it removes from us the veil of disturbance and reveals to us the One Who loves us so much.  But if you want peace, you must live from the Divine Will.  It alone gives us true peace and encloses the Celestial Fatherland in our heart.

I beg you to make of your Community the little kingdom of the Fiat Voluntas Tua, on earth as it is in Heaven.  If you do so, you will have a flourishing community – the will of each one will be the will of all.  You will have one single strength, and will form the little Heaven on earth.  Therefore I beg you – since you wanted a word from me – that you all do the Divine Will.  Place the Fiat before and after each one of your acts.  Everything you want – leave it completely in the Divine Volition; do not worry, and It will take on the commitment of all your things.

I send the greeting of the Divine Fiat to my dear cousin, and I beg her to make herself a saint, and never to leave the infinite sea of the Divine Volition.  Tell her to pray for me, as I assure her that I do for her.  I commend myself very much to your prayers, and leaving you crossing the unending sea of the Fiat, I say,

your most devoted servant,
Luisa Piccarreta

  1. To a Religious Superior

I.V.D.  D.G.

My good and Reverend Mother,

I received your letter, so pleasing to me, and in reading it I felt in my poor heart the notes of your sorrow, of your bitterness and of the isolation in which you find yourself.  My Mother, courage, don’t lose heart, because despondency exhausts courage and strength, and renders us unable to do good.  If you throw all these notes of sorrow and isolation into the sea of the eternal Volition, they will give you a greater right:  that the Divine Fiat be not only your life, but your guide, support and inseparable companion, so as to form with It everything which befits you, as Superior, to do and command.  Don’t you feel this divine help within yourself?  Don’t you feel in your heart the presence of a powerful hand that guides you?  Therefore, my Mother, abandon yourself in the Divine Volition like a little baby, and you will feel a new strength, a new light arise, which, embracing you, will tell you:  “I am always with you.  The isolation in which your people leave you will be rewarded by my faithful company.”

Although unworthy, I will pray from the heart that Jesus may console you and give you so much grace as to be able to enjoy peace in the midst of many storms, and that all your daughters may want to listen to your maternal word, commanding them for their own good.

Now let’s come to us, and I will tell you this because you want to know it, otherwise I would have done without.  After the coming of Martucci to Trani, the publication of the D.W. is sleeping.  There is no concern; it seems to me that all they are doing is just palliatives and games, while they should be thinking that they do not make fun of me, but of a Divine Volition.  My Mother, in order to do some good, it takes someone who feels the life of that good.  If this life is not felt, it will be done in a forced way and even badly; and with a forced good, the creature feels the ground missing underneath her feet, and lacks time and strength.  In the end, Fiat, Fiat!  May the Fiat dispose whatever and whoever It wants.  I want nothing but the Divine Will to be done.

Implore the Lord’s help for me, and may He forgive these little vents.  Fr. Benedetto blesses you and my sister sends you all her regards.  And leaving you always in the Divine Volition, I kiss your right hand and say,

your most devoted servant,
Luisa Piccarreta


  1. To Mother Elisabetta

J.M.J.A. – Fiat

My good and Reverend Mother,

I send you the letter for your sister.  I believe you will be content, and let us hope that Jesus will console her.  May He console you as well, my Mother, and give you strength.  And may the Divine Will be your guide, so that you may guide all your daughters along the path of the divine Fiat.  I kiss your right hand, I commend myself to your prayers, and I say,

Your most devoted servant,
Luisa Piccarreta.

A heartfelt greeting to your sister Elisa.

Happy Birthday Luisa – 4/23

156 Years Old This Year 2021

Luisa, the One who Opens the Doors to the Kingdom of the Divine Will!

Volume 30 – 4/24 – As many times as she does her acts in It, so many times is she reborn in her acts.  Contest between Creator and creature.

       …After this, I was doing my acts in the Divine Will, and my sweet Jesus added:  “My daughter, the soul who lives in my Will is in continuous act of being reborn in the acts that she does in It.  If she loves, she is in continuous act of being reborn in the divine love; and while she is born, the life of love is formed in her, and, as life, it takes primacy in all her being, in a way that her heartbeat, her breath, the motion, the gaze, the step, the will, and everything else, become love; and as many times as she is reborn, so many more times does love grow.  This love, as life, and in act of always being born and growing, has the enrapturing and wounding strength, which, while it wounds Us, enraptures Us, but with Our own divine power; and We, feeling Ourselves being wounded, pour out more love from Our wounds, and We wound Our beloved creature, and in each rebirth We redouble Our love for her.  In the same way, if she repairs, and for as many times as she repairs in Our Will, so many times is she reborn in the divine reparation and forms the life of reparation in her soul; so, her breath, her motion, her will and all her being, acquire the life of reparation.  And since it isn’t with one act alone that she repairs Us, but with one entire life, she has, as life, the disarming power; and disarming Us, she converts the scourges into graces.  And so with all the rest that the creature can do in Our Divine Will:  it is lives that she acquires, which are nourished by Our divine founts.  So, if she praises Us in Our Divine Will, if she thanks Us, if she blesses Us, she forms one entire life of thanksgivings, of praise and of blessings toward her Creator; and each time she does it, while she is reborn in these acts and grows, she forms the fullness of life, in a way that the breath, the heartbeat, if she thinks, if she speaks, if she moves her step, if blood circulates in her veins – the whole entirety of the creature – there is not one particle of her being that does not say:  ‘I thank You, I praise You, I bless You.’  Oh! how beautiful it is to see her – possessing as many lives for as many times as she is reborn in her own acts done in Our Divine Fiat; and for as many lives as she possesses We feel in her heartbeat as many heartbeats in one, as many breaths, motions and steps in one; and each of them – some say ‘love’, some ‘reparation’, some ‘thanksgivings’, some ‘praise’ and some ‘blessing’.  These rebirths and lives form the most beautiful harmony in the fortunate creature who had the good of acquiring them.  Our satisfaction is so great, that Our gaze is always fixed on looking at her, Our ears always intent on listening to her, the power of Our Will calls Our continuous attention.  And as she says to Us:  ‘I love You’, so do We repeat to her:  ‘We love you, oh! daughter.’  As she repairs Us, so do We press her to Our Heart; as she thanks Us, praises Us, blesses Us, so do We keep repeating:  ‘We thank you that you are thanking Us’, ‘We praise you for you are praising Us’, ‘We bless you for you are blessing Us.’  We can say that We put Ourselves in a contest with her.  Heaven and earth are astounded that their Creator engages in a contest with His beloved creature.  Therefore, always in my Will do I want you, because in It you give Us much to do and to say, and you form Our outpouring of love.”

V30 – 4.23.32 – “We Repeat to her:  ‘We Love you, oh! daughter.’  As she repairs Us, so do We Press her to Our Heart; as she thanks Us, praises Us, blesses Us, so do We Keep Repeating:  ‘We Thank you that you are thanking Us’, ‘We Praise you for you are praising Us’, ‘We Bless you for you are blessing Us.’  We can Say that We Put Ourselves in a Contest with her.  Heaven and earth are Astounded that their Creator Engages in a Contest with His beloved creature.”

 Fiat!!!

Easter Sunday is the birthday of Rosaria Bucci

Rosaria Bucci 

“faithful and silent confidant of Luisa
for 40 years
and first promoter”
Padre Bucci

 Born April 4, 1898
Entered into Eternity
January 29, 1978*

*1st of 4 days of copying the hidden Volumes
of Luisa Piccarreta in the Secret Archives of the Vatican
under Cardinal Ratzinger

Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta

Luisa Prophesied to Rosaria:

“You will be my witness.”

 Every moment of the life of the Bucci family, Rosaria’s in particular, was permeated by the fragrance of the holiness of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta. From a young age, Rosaria Bucci, Aunt of Padre Bernardino Giuseppe Bucci, OFM, effected by epilepsy and having suffered the traumatic amputation of four fingers of her left hand, from an accident, was considered inept. From an invitation of Luisa to Rosaria’s mother around 1907, Rosaria began her daily visits and eventual care of Luisa, together with Luisa’s family. One day, while Luisa was busy working on the tombolo in the company of other girls, Rosaria had a seizure. All fled, frightened, and only Angelina, Luisa’s sister, came to her rescue. It is said that Luisa remained very calm in her bed, but she looked up to Heaven, professing these words:

“Lord, if you have placed her next to me, I want her healthy.”

From that moment Aunt Rosaria had no more seizures and miraculously became a perfect embroiderer of tombolo (lacemaking).

At about 5.00 a.m. Rosaria went to Luisa’s house to prepare the altar for Holy Mass – a privilege granted by Pope Leo XIII and confirmed by Pope St. Pius X. Luisa would then remain in prayer and thanksgiving for about two hours. At about 8.00 a.m. she would begin her work of lacemaking. Rosaria became so adept at working the tombolo that Luisa entrusted to her management of the teaching in her school of embroidery. In the afternoons, the  Holy Rosary was recited, and towards 8.00 p.m. Luisa would begin to write her diary.

Wherever Rosaria was, if Luisa called her, she would hear a little bell ring and would run to Luisa’s side. Once, little Gemma (Padre Bucci’s sister) hid under Luisa’s bed, perhaps to give Aunt Rosaria a surprise and unwittingly witnessed a mystical phenomenon. Luisa had a bedside table on which stood a glass bell containing a figurine of the Child Jesus. A great silence fell. Then Gemma came out from under the bed and saw the Child Jesus who had come to life, whom Luisa had taken in her arms and was covering with kisses.

In 1915, St. Annibale Maria di Francia, extraordinary confessor and ecclesiastical editor of the Servant of God’s writings, gave Rosaria a copy of the Hours of the Passion, which he published. Shortly before her death, Rosaria in turn gave that copy to her nephew Padre Bernardino Bucci:

“I give you this book that is a relic because it was given to me by Father Annibale. It is not in very good condition because I have read and re-read it many times.” 

Padre Bernardino Giuseppe Bucci, OFM

Padre Bucci’s entire life and priesthood were immersed in the writings of the little daughter of the Divine Will, Luisa Piccarreta. He was the first priest to read, study and put into practice the Truths given to Luisa from Jesus.

Rosaria also gave to Padre Bucci the original Volumes 35 and 36 that were not taken to the Vatican. Padre Bucci later affirmed:

“All the information that I received from Aunt Rosaria is found almost entirely in the various archives of documents existing in the Congregation of Rogationists and Sisters of Divine Zeal, as well as the archives of the Sisters of the Sacro Costato founded by the Servant of God Eustachio Montemurro.” 

As for the many requests about the great phenomena and mystical experiences that surrounded the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, Rosaria would give her reply:

 “Everything that served as the salvation and the sanctification of souls, everything that serves the Kingdom has been written. Everything else is part of the intimacy between Jesus and Luisa, and it is not given to us to investigate and to enter into this sacrarium, this intimacy. It would be only curiosity.” 

Having read all of Luisa’s writings, Rosaria also had an earnest devotion to the protection of the unborn. According to Padre Bucci, just before her death, Luisa revealed to Rosaria that Jesus gave Rosaria the Mission of helping the Preborn in a similar way that Jesus gave Luisa the Mission of those Born to the Light of the Day, as in the following reading: Our Lord Jesus to Luisa, Volume 36-April 12, 1938 –

“…You were asking in My Will for the Baptism of All newborn babies that will come to the light of the day – and then, for Its Life to Reign in them. My Will did not hesitate for an instant; soon It Pronounced Its Fiat.” 

In 1938 the condemnation of the Holy Office fell on Luisa; the Servant of God was struck by unheard-of storms. Many people turned away from Luisa, while Fr. Calvi, Luisa’s (last confessor), Rosaria, the Cimadomo sisters and a few others remained faithful to her. Luisa Prophesied to Rosaria:

“You will be my witness.” 

After Luisa’s death, Rosaria tirelessly promoted the beginning of the Cause of Luisa under the Spiritual Direction of St. Padre Pio:

“Rosà, go ahead, go ahead for Luisa is great and the world will be full of Luisa.” 

After the venerated Padre Pio’s death in 1968, Rosaria made known to Padre Bucci:

“During my confession Padre Pio told me that Luisa is not a human factor, she is a work of God and He Himself will make her emerge.  The world will be astounded at her greatness; not many years will pass before this happens.  The new millennium will see Luisa’s Light.” 

Rosaria traveled, accompanied by her niece Gemma to spread the devotion to the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta. Travels included: to St. Padre Pio of San Giovanni Rotondo; to the lawyer Palermo who worked in a Vatican congregation; to the Holy Office of Cardinal Ottaviani (secretary of the Congregation) who kindly heard her and promised to take up the case; to Archbishop Monsignor Addazzi of Trani, who said to her:

“Miss Rosaria, I do not know whether to reprimand you or to admire you for your courage.  You have faced the guard dog of the Church, the great defender of the faith, without being bitten.” 

Further, she went to the Vicar General Monsignor Balducci of Salerno; to Monsignor Samarelli, Vicar General of the Diocese of Bari; and more.

From Rosaria Bucci:

“…one day the world will speak of Corato as we now speak of Bethlehem.”

“After Our Lady, comes Luisa, who brings the world the Third Fiat, the Fiat of Sanctification.” 

‘One day Our Lord said to Luisa:
“All those who have seen and known you, Luisa, will be Saved.”’ 

On the Feast of Christ the King, November 20, 1994, Archbishop Carmelo Cassati of Trani opened the Cause of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta in Chiesa Matrice di Santa Maria Maggiore, Corato, Italy.

Rosaria Bucci was buried in the Bucci family tomb in Corato. The day after Rosaria’s funeral, the whole family gathered for the customary second burial ceremony.  The coffin was opened for the last time, and to the wonder of all, Rosaria seemed to be sweetly sleeping. A soft and sweet fragrance came from her coffin.

Padre Bucci, Rosaria’s priest nephew, to whom she entrusted everything of Luisa, went to his Eternal Reward on July 17, 2020. This was the eve of the Feast of Santa Maria Greca. Padre Bucci was the Spiritual Father of many of the little children of the Divine Will throughout the world. On July 3, 1963 Luisa’s body, once buried in the place of the Bucci family tomb, was moved inside the Church of Santa Maria Greca. On April 23, 2020, Luisa’s birthday, was moved to the front of the Church, right side of the High Altar.

Prayer Requesting the Intercession of Rosaria Bucci 

     O Most Holy Trinity, fused to Jesus, Mary and Luisa, we pray that Rosaria be Luisa’s witness because of her lifelong sacrifice of caring for and promoting her among the little children of the Divine Will. We ask that Rosaria be recognized and glorified in Your Holy Church, and that the Kingdom of the Divine Will Come to Reign on earth as it is in Heaven. Amen.

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

THE PROMISES FOR THOSE WHO MEDITATE ON

THE HOURS OF THE PASSION

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.”

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.”

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.”

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.

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!”

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.

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….”
