Letters from Luisa Piccarreta – I recommend to you “The Hours of the Passion”

  1. To Mrs. Antonietta Savorani, widow from Faenza.

My good daughter in the Divine Volition,

Thank you for interesting yourself in promoting the book of the Queen of Heaven and that of the Passion:  this is nothing less than calling back the Celestial Mama and the King of Sorrows into the midst of creatures, so that we may learn to live more from Heaven than from the earth.  This would be the greatest fortune for us, so as to be able to live from the Divine Will.  So it seems that Jesus and His Mama never stop repeating,  “Thank you, thank you, my daughter!  As a reward, We will form our Heaven in your soul; We will be always with you; your life and Ours will become one.”  Therefore, what I recommend to you is to correspond to such a great good.  Be attentive to listening to sweet Jesus, Who speaks in your heart.  He wants to make of you a saint, but wants your will in His hands in order to make of it a prodigy of sanctity.

Three things I recommend to you:  firmness in good, perennial peace, filial trust.  Trust will make you live like a little baby in the arms of her mama, and Jesus and the Celestial Mama will take care of all the things you need.  They will tell you with facts:  “Think about living from Our Will, and We will take care of everything, even the salvation of your brothers.”  Aren’t you happy?

You ask me whether your friends can write me.  My daughter, it is hard for me to answer; it is better if they pay attention in reading the book of the Blessed Mother.  Oh, how many things will the great Lady tell them of what they would like to hear from me!  And then, there is the book of the Passion in which Jesus speaks heart to heart.  In this fifth edition which I am sending you, you will find new things, and, doubled, the “Treaty on the Divine Will.”  Read it, and you will be able to tell me the great good it does to you.

I recommend that all of you pray to the Lord that all may recognize such a great good; and the face of the earth will be changed.  On my part, I would like to give my life so that all may know the Divine Will.  I commend myself to your prayers and to those of your good friends; and leaving you in the place of honor of the Divine Will, sending you Its kiss of Light and Love, I say,

The little daughter of the Divine Will


  1. To Mrs. Copparo La Scola from Termini Imerese, Palermo.

In Voluntate Dei!

Most esteemed and blessed daughter in the Divine Volition,

Here I am to make you content.  I believe that the Queen of Heaven and the great King of sorrows will reward you for your great goodness and charity, and will be generous to you with celestial favors, as you interest yourself so much in promoting His Passion and that which regards His Divine Will.  Greater love cannot be given to the Lord.

Now let’s come to us.  You say you have many crosses.  Good sign, my daughter.  Crosses are divine jealousies and little coins that our Lord gives us.  His jealousy is the great love He has in making of us saints; He takes everyone away from us and He Himself, God, Maker and Martyr, with little crosses and with His own hands, works our souls and makes of them His images.  What love for us, as we can say, through little and large crosses,  “I am similar to my dear Jesus”!

But do you want to know why you feel the weight of your miseries?  Because many times you do not try to be together with Jesus and to convince yourself that He is already with you, and you do not unite the pains of Jesus with yours.  Before the pains of Jesus, yours lose hardness, empty themselves of their weight, become small, and almost smile, because they love to adorn our souls with the same ornaments as those with which we see Jesus being adorned.  What pleasure, what joy, to be able to say:  “You have suffered for me, and I for You”!  Together with Jesus, pains change their look, miseries disappear; and from pains, miseries and weaknesses the most beautiful conquests, celestial riches and the strength of God arise, and the very Angels and Saints envy our lot.

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.

If you do this, you will form the joy of the Heart of Jesus, and He will not be able to deny you anything, not even the sanctity of your children… It seems that you are very much concerned for them.  Do not fear; place them in the hands of Jesus and on the lap of the Celestial Mama.  Advise them to read often the book of the Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will, and you will see the great things the Lord will do with them.

I finish by recommending that you never lose peace… Be careful not ever to be disturbed, not even for your miseries, and not even for the illness of your husband.  Let us adore the judgments of God, just and holy, Who disposes everything for our good and to make us holy.

I commend myself to your prayers, and from the heart I will do it for you and for all those who buy the book, so that all may become saints.  I leave you in the sea of the Divine Volition, and with a thousand regards, I say,

most affectionately yours,

The little daughter of the Divine Will

May the Holy Will of God bind us so much as to put every worry to flight.

Good daughter,

With blessed Jesus, It takes trust and love; the braver we are, the more He loves us.  Your fear of receiving Communion comes from the enemy; he would be pleased if we formed more firewood for hell, otherwise he would not have told you this, or caused so many fears within you.  On the contrary, I tell you that when you abstain because of fear, you form firewood for Purgatory, and the Communions you do not receive on earth, you will receive with fire in Purgatory, because Jesus burns with love in the Most Holy Sacrament and wants to come into our hearts in order to pour out His flames; while if we abstain, He burns more, becoming fidgety and delirious, and with Justice He will make us burn more in Purgatory.  Therefore, think only of loving Jesus, of how to make Him happier, and love will destroy all the wood and, as celestial dew, will cover you and purify you of everything.  Fears, doubts, agitation, are laces which bind us to ourselves, and take the freshness of love away from us; even more, they make it wither and snatch us from the arms of Jesus.

I recommend to you “The Hours of the Passion”.  Form continuous chains of reparation around Jesus; unite all your actions to them, so that this sweet chain of reparation may never be broken.  These times require it; if we don’t want to be spectators of worse evils, promote it as much as you can.  Commending myself to your prayers, I pray to Jesus that He may bless you and give you peace.

Feast of the Chair of St. Peter 2-22

The Chair of St. Peter, Vatican City, Rome

The “cathedra” (chair) is the throne established where the bishop resides, hence the name cathedral, given to the church where his seat is placed. Metaphorically, it represent the episcopal authority itself.  “The Chair of St. Peter” means, therefore, a memory of St. Peter’s episcopate, and his primacy as head of the Church.

To honor the dignity of the “Prince” to whom Jesus committed the power of the keys, the Church instated the Feast of the “Chair of St. Peter”, which is found in the Roman calendar at this date since the year 336.

Book of Heaven
Volume 2 – May 2, 1899
How all Heaven is veiled in the Church.

… He (Jesus) made me (Luisa) see the Church, telling me these exact words: “All Heaven is veiled in my Church. Just as in Heaven one is the head, which is God, and many are the saints, of different conditions, orders and merits, so in my Church, in which all Heaven is veiled, one is the head, which is the Pope, and the Sacrosanct Trinity is veiled even in the triple tiara that covers his head; and many are the members that depend on this head – that is, different dignities, various orders, superior and inferior, from the littlest to the greatest, they all serve to embellish my Church. Each one, according to its degree, has the office entrusted to it, and by the exact fulfillment of the virtues it comes to give from itself a splendor so very fragrant to my Church, that the earth and Heaven are perfumed and illuminated, and the people are so drawn by this light and by this fragrance, that it is almost impossible for them not to surrender to the truth. I leave it to you, then, to consider those infected members which, instead of shedding light, cast darkness. How much torment they cause in my Church.” …

Excerpt from the Third Appeal
by the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, the Little Daughter of the Divine Will

… Therefore, I appeal to all; and I make this appeal together with Jesus, with His own tears, with His ardent sighs, with His Heart that burns, that wants to give Its “FIAT.”..From within the “FIAT”  we have come forth; It has given us life.  It is just, it is our obligation and duty to return into It, into our dear and interminable heritage.

And in the first place, I appeal to the Highest Hierarch, to the Roman Pontiff, to His Holiness, to the representative of the Holy Church, and therefore the representative of the Kingdom of the Divine Will.   At his holy feet, this little, tiny child places this Kingdom, so that he dominate It and make It known, and with his paternal and authoritative voice, call his sons to live in this Kingdom so holy.

May the Sun of the Supreme “FIAT”  invest him and form the first Sun of the Divine Volition in Its Representative on earth; and forming Its (Divine Will’s) primary Life in him (the Pope) who is the Head of all, It will spread Its interminable rays in all the world; and eclipsing all with Its Light, It will form one flock and one Shepherd.

First Sunday of Lent

Volume 9 – March 23, 1910
Living in the Divine Will is greater than Communion Itself.
As I was in my usual state, and lamenting because of His privations, He came just in passing and told me: “My daughter, I Recommend that you not get out of My Will, because My Will contains such power as to be a new Baptism for the soul – and even more than Baptism itself. In fact, while in the Sacraments there is part of my Grace, in My Will there is the whole fullness of It. In the Baptism, the stain of original sin is removed, but passions and weaknesses remain. In My Will, since the soul destroys her own volition, she also destroys passions, weaknesses and all that is human; and she lives of the virtues, of the fortitude and of all the Divine qualities.”
On hearing this, I said to myself: ‘In a little while He is going to say that His Will is greater than Communion Itself.’ And He added: “Of course, of course, because the Sacramental Communion lasts a few minutes, while My Will is perennial communion; even more, eternal – entering eternity in Heaven. The Sacramental Communion is subject to some obstacles, either because of illness, or necessity, or because of those who have to administer It; while the Communion of My Will is not subject to any hindrance. If the soul only wants it, all is done. No one can prevent her from having such a great good which forms the happiness of the earth and of Heaven – neither demons, nor creatures, and not even my Omnipotence Itself. The soul is free; no one has any right over her at this point of My Will. This is why I push It, and I want so much that creatures take It: It is the most important thing for Me; the thing which I cherish the most. All other things do not interest Me as much, not even the holiest ones. And when I obtain that the soul live in My Will, I feel triumphant – because this is the greatest good which can exist in Heaven and on earth.”

Ash Wednesday

Volume 17 – 7.1.1924
…while I was trying to follow Jesus in the different Mysteries of His Passion, I arrived at accompanying Him in the Mystery of His Painful Scourging. At that moment, He moved in my interior, Filling All of myself with His Adorable Person… ”My daughter, let us Pray Together. There are certain sad times in which My Justice, unable to contain Itself because of the evils of creatures, would Want to Flood the earth with New Scourges; and so Prayer in My Divine Will is Necessary, which, Extending over All, places itself as Defense of the creatures, and with its Power, prevents My Justice from approaching the creature to strike her.” How Beautiful and Touching it was to hear Jesus Pray! And since I was Accompanying Him in the Sorrowful Mystery of the Scourging, He Made Himself Seen Pouring out Blood, and I heard Him say: “My Father, I offer You this Blood of Mine. O Please, let It Cover All the intelligences of creatures, rendering vain All their evil thoughts, dimming the fire of their passions, and Making Holy Intelligences Rise Again. May this Blood Cover their eyes and be a Veil to their sight, so that the taste of evil pleasures may not enter them through their eyes, and they may not get dirty with the mud of the earth. May this Blood of Mine Cover and Fill their mouths, and Render their lips dead to blasphemies, to imprecations, to All of their bad words. My Father, may this Blood of Mine Cover their hands, and strike terror in man for so many evil actions. May this Blood Circulate in Our Eternal Will in order to Cover All, to Defend All, and to be a Defending Weapon for the creature before the Rights of Our Justice.”

Volume 13 – 9.16.1921
I was Making the Hour of the Passion in which my Sweet Jesus was in the palace of Herod, clothed as a madman and mocked. And my always Lovable Jesus, Making Himself seen, told me: “My daughter, not only then was I clothed like a madman, sneered at and mocked, but creatures continue to give Me these Pains; even more, I AM under continuous mockeries, and by all kinds of people. If a person goes to Confession and does not maintain his Resolutions Not To Offend Me—this is a mockery that he Makes of Me. If a Priest confesses, preaches, administers the Sacraments, and his life does not correspond to the words he says and to the Dignity of the Sacraments he Administers— he mocks Me as many times for as many words as he says, and for as many Sacraments as he Administers. While I Give them New Life in the Sacraments, they Give Me scorns and mockeries; and by profaning them, they prepare for Me the garment to clothe Me as a madman. If superiors command Sacrifice, Virtue, Prayer and Disinterest to their subjects, while they conduct a life of comfort, of vice and of interest—these are as many mockeries that they Make Of Me. If civilian and ecclesiastical leaders want the observance of the laws, and they are the first transgressors—these are mockeries that they Make Of Me. O, how many mockeries they Make Of Me! They are So Many that I AM Tired of them, especially when they put the poison of evil under Good. O, how they Make Fun Of Me, as if I were their amusement and their pastime! But sooner or later Justice shall Make Fun of them, by Punishing them Severely. You—Pray and Repair for these mockeries which Grieve Me So Much, and are the Cause for which I do not Make Myself Known for Who I AM.”

Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes – Feb. 11

February 11 – Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes
On December 8, 1854, Pope Pius IX proclaimed the dogma of the Immaculate Conception in the apostolic constitution Ineffabilis Deus. A little more than three years later, on February 11, 1858, a young Lady appeared to Bernadette Soubirous. This began a series of visions. During the apparition on March 25, the Lady identified Herself with the words: “I am the Immaculate Conception.”

From the OUR LADY OF AMERICA booklet(below) – the 11th of 12 Ways Our Lady Appeared:
“Our Lady of Lourdes” (The Immaculate Conception) – “I had another of those “experiences” of which you have already heard, Father, many times. Though I had not at that time been thinking of Her, She suddenly appeared at my side. This person was none other than St. Bernadette. She did not come as a Sister but as the little peasant girl who saw “The Lady”. I was transported, somehow, with her, to the Lourdes Grotto in France. We stood a short distance away from it looking up into the niche which was filled with Light. In the midst of this brilliant Light I saw “The Lady” (the Immaculate Conception), so Beautiful, so Glowing, as it were, in Light that I could scarcely see the outline of Her figure. It was Brighter than any light I have ever seen. It was a Light All-Heavenly and Full of Glory. I was transfixed. Then suddenly the figure of Our Lady seemed to dissolve in the Light but the Brilliant Light itself remained. Then I saw a path, at times it seemed to take the form of steps, leading upwards from the niche where “The Lady” had been standing. Every so often as I gazed at this Luminous Pathway, I caught a glimpse of Angels. I was anxious to follow the Path of Light and as I eagerly endeavored to do so, Bernadette held me back. Then I exclaimed, “But I want to go there.” The Saint answered, “No, my sister, it is not yet time for you, but it will be soon.” (Sister to Rev. Leibold 4/12/58)

“Our Lady has asked that a statue be made as she Appeared on the Sept. 26th, 1956 (Pictured on cover – Our Lady of America). After being solemnly carried in procession in the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Wash. D.C., She desires that there it be enshrined in the place of honor and to be venerated there, in a special way as ‘Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin’. It is at this Shrine She has Promised to Work Wonders. She Desires also that a small statue or picture of this same likeness be honored in every home.”

Our Lady of America’s Request of 64 years ago remains, to have Her Bishops process Her statue into Her Basilica in Washington D.C. and give Her a place of honor there. “I come to you, O children of America, as a last resort. I Plead with you to listen to My Voice.” (Sister to Rev. Leibold 11/15/56)

Also on Feb 11 – Our Lady of All Nations to Ida Peerdeman in 1951
The “Lady of All Nations” apparitions took place from 1945 to 1959 in Amsterdam, Netherlands, to the visionary Ida Peerdeman. On May 31, 2002, the apparitions received local Church approval when Bishop Josef Punt of Haarlem-Amsterdam officially declared the essence of the apparitions and messages “to consist of a supernatural origin.”

On February 11, 1951, the Lady of All Nations dictates to the seer a new prayer directed to Jesus, beseeching him to for a New Pentecost through the Advocacy of Mary, in order to prevent “degeneration, disasters and war.”

Lord, Jesus Christ,
Son of the Father,
Send now your spirit over the earth.
Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations,
That they may be preserved from degeneration, disasters, and war.
May the Lady of All Nations, the Blessed Virgin Mary,
Be our Advocate. Amen.

Further instructions from Our Lady direct that this “Prayer of the Lady of All Nations” should be spread throughout the world in preparation for the new dogma.

“I stand here and come to tell you that I wish to be Mary, the Lady of All Nations. Look carefully. I am standing before the Cross of the Redeemer. My head, hands and feet as of a human being, as of the Son of Man; the body as of the Spirit. I have firmly placed my feet upon the globe, for in this time the Father and the Son wants to bring me into this world as Co-Redemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. This will be the new and final Marian dogma. This image will precede. This dogma will be much disputed, yet it will be carried through…”

The single most significant message of the entire Amsterdam apparitions concerning the dogma occurs on May 31, 1954, at that time, the feast of Mary, Mediatrix of all Graces. Our Lady will invoke theologians and bishops (apostles) to work and ask for the dogma, instructing them that “you must petition the Holy Father for this Dogma.” Our Lady will grant a vision which explains the three titles in one whole; a further vision of the Holy Father in St. Peter’s Basilica pronouncing the dogma; as well as the promise that once the dogma is declared, the Lady of All Nations will bring peace, true peace, to the world.

Perhaps Our Lady of America is awaiting Her procession in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Washington DC as She requested of Her children of the United States as Her “last resort”, to then grant the Grace for the fulfillment of Her Wishes at Fatima (Consecration of Russia to Her Immaculate Heart) and the 5th Dogma – Mediatrix, Co-Redemptrix and Advocate!!
THE FIRST REQUEST IS TO HER BISHOPS OF THE USA, THE NEXT TWO ARE TO THE HOLY FATHER!

LET’S NOT FORGET:

ALSO ON FEBRUARY 11, 2013 – RENUNCIATION OF POPE BENEDICT XVI 

Lightning struck the cupola of St. Peter’s Basilica – a dramatic sign!!

Our Lady of America – The Immaculate Virgin Pray for us!!
