Today we celebrate the birthday of St. John the Baptist – one of three birthdays in the Catholic liturgical calendar, the others being that of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself and of His Blessed Mother. It is interesting to note that St. John the Baptist’s birthday comes just as the days are starting to get shorter (in the Northern Hemisphere), whereas Christ’s birthday comes just as they are starting to get longer: “He must increase, I must decrease” (John 3:30).
From the Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will – Meditation 1 – After many days of travel, finally I arrived in Judea, and I hastened to the house of Elisabeth. She came toward Me in feast. At the greeting I gave her, marvelous phenomena occurred. My little Jesus exulted in My womb, and fixing little John in the womb of his mother with the Rays of His Divinity, He Sanctified him, gave him the use of Reason, and made known to him that He was the Son of God. And John leaped so vigorously with love and with joy that Elisabeth was shaken. Touched by the Light of the Divinity of My Son, she too recognized that I had become the Mother of God; and in the emphasis of her love, trembling with gratitude, she exclaimed:
“Whence comes to me so much honor, that the Mother of my Lord would come to me?” I did not deny the highest mystery; rather, I humbly confirmed it. Praising God with the song of the Magnificat – sublime canticle, through which the Church continuously honors Me – I announced that the Lord had done great things in Me, His servant, and that because of this, all peoples would call Me Blessed.
My child, I felt devoured with the desire to pour out the flames of love that consumed Me, and to reveal My Secret to Elisabeth, who also longed for the Messiah to come upon earth. A secret is a need of the heart which is revealed, irresistibly, to persons who are capable of understanding each other.
Who can ever tell you how much good My visit brought to Elisabeth, to John, and to their whole household? Everyone was Sanctified, filled with Gladness, felt unusual Joys, and comprehended things unheard-of. John, in particular, received all the Graces which were necessary for him, to prepare himself to be the Precursor of My Son.

Reflections on Luisa’s Name Saint
Luigi: A Eucharistic Saint
Holy Mary, My Queen I commend myself to Your Blessed Protection and Special Keeping and to the Bosom of Your Mercy this day and every day of my life and the hour of my death. I entrust to you all my hopes and consolations all my trials and miseries my life and the end of my life that through Your Most Holy Intercession and Your Merits all my actions may be ordered and directed according to Your Will and that of Your Son. Amen
Saint Aloysius, Luigi to call him by his proper name, may well be the most loved Jesuit in history. Luigi contracted the plague from those whom he was nursing. He foresaw his own death and asked Our Lord that he might die within the Octave of Corpus Christi. He died, in fact, on the Octave Day of Corpus Christi with the name of Jesus on his lips.

Volume 2 – June 20, 1899
Afterwards, Heaven opened; it seemed that a very great feast was being prepared. At that very moment a young man of lovely appearance came down from Heaven, all dazzling with fire and flames. Jesus told me: “Tomorrow is the feast of my dear Aloysius – I must go attend.” And I: ‘And so You leave me alone – what shall I do?’ And He: “You too will come. Look at how beautiful Aloysius is; but the greatest thing in him, which distinguished him on earth, was the love with which he operated. Everything was love in him – love occupied him interiorly, love surrounded him externally; so, one can say that even his breath was love. This is why it is said of him that he never suffered distraction – because love inundated him everywhere, and with this love he will be inundated eternally, as you see.”
And in fact it seemed that the love of Saint Aloysius was so very great, as to be able to burn the whole world to ashes. Then, Jesus added: “I stroll over the highest mountains, and there I form my delight.” Since I did not understand the meaning of it, He continued: “The highest mountains are the Saints who have loved Me the most, and in them I form my delight, both when they are on earth, and when they pass into Heaven. So, everything is in love.” After this, I prayed Jesus to bless me and those whom I was seeing at that moment; and He, giving His blessing, disappeared.
Volume 19 June 21, 1926; Saint Aloysius was a flower that bloomed from the Humanity of Our Lord, made bright by the rays of the Divine Will. The souls who will possess the Kingdom of the Divine Will will have their roots within Its Sun.
This morning, having received Holy Communion, I received It as usual in the Most Holy Will of God, offering It to my dear Saint Aloysius – not only the Communion, but all the goods contained in the Most Holy Will of God, for his accidental glory. Now, while doing this, I saw that all the goods contained in the Supreme Volition, like many rays of light, rays of beauty and of multiple colors, inundated the dear Saint, giving him an infinite glory. And my sweet Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, Aloysius is a flower and a Saint bloomed from the earth of my Humanity and made bright by the reflections of the rays of the Sun of my Will. In fact, though, holy, pure, noble and united hypostatically to the Word, my Humanity was earth; and Aloysius, more than flower, bloomed from my Humanity – pure, holy, noble, possessing the root of pure love, in such a way that in each leaf of his flower one can see written, ‘love’. But what renders him more beautiful and brilliant are the rays of my Will, to which he was always submitted – rays which gave such development to this flower as to render it unique on earth and in Heaven. Now, my daughter, if Aloysius is so beautiful because he bloomed from my Humanity, what will be of you and of all those who will possess the Kingdom of my Will? These flowers will not bloom from my Humanity, but will have their roots within the Sun of my Will. In It is formed the flower of their life; they grow and bloom in the very Sun of my Volition which, jealous of these flowers, will keep them eclipsed within Its own light. In each petal of these flowers one will see, written, all the specialties of the divine qualities; they will be the enchantment of all Heaven, and all will recognize in them the complete work of their Creator.”
And while He was saying this, my sweet Jesus opened His breast and showed, inside it, an immense Sun, in which He was to plant all these flowers; and His love and jealousy toward them was so great, that He would not let them bloom outside His Humanity, but inside Himself.
Volume 26 – June 27, 1929
Having received Holy Communion, I was offering It for the glory of Saint Aloysius, and I offered, as a present for him, everything that Our Lord had done in His Divine Will with His mind, with His words, works and steps, for the accidental glory of Saint Aloysius on his feast day. Now, while I was doing this, my sweet Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, a more beautiful present you could not give to dear Saint Aloysius on the day of his feast. As you were offering your Communion and all my acts done in my Divine Will, so many suns were formed for as many acts as I did in It while being on earth; and these suns invested Saint Aloysius, in such a way that he received so much accidental glory from the earth, that he could not receive more. Only the offerings of acts done in my Divine Will have the virtue of forming their suns, because, containing the fullness of light, it is no wonder that It converts into suns the human acts done in It.”

Now, while I was doing this, my sweet Jesus, moving in my interior,
“My daughter, a more beautiful present you could not give

As you were offering your Holy Communion and all My Acts done in My Divine Will,
so many suns were formed for as many Acts as I (Jesus) did in the Divine Will while being on earth;

January 10, 1938
The first sermon that the little King Jesus gave to the children of Egypt. How each of them had their Celestial Father in their heart, Who loved them and wanted to be loved.
I was doing the round in the Divine Fiat, and – oh! how I yearn that not one act would escape me of what It has done, both in Creation and in Redemption. It seems to me that I lack something if I do not recognize It, love It, kiss It and clasp It to my heart in everything It has done, as if it were my own. And the Divine Volition would remain as though displeased if one who lives in It does not know all of Its acts, and if It does not find, in everything It has done, the little ‘I love You’ of the one whom It so much loves and for whom there is nothing It has not done.
So, I came to follow that point when the Celestial Child was in Egypt, in the act of taking His first steps; and I kissed His steps, I placed my ‘I love You’ at each step He was taking, and I asked Him for the first steps of His Will for all human generations. I tried to follow Him in everything; if He prayed, if He cried, I asked that His Will would animate all the prayers of creatures, and that His tears would regenerate the Life of Its Fiat in the human family. Then, while I was attentive in following Him in everything, the little Baby King, visiting my poor soul, told me: “Daughter of my Will, how happy I am when the creature does not leave Me alone – I feel her behind Me, in front of Me, and in all my acts. Now, you must know that my exile in Egypt was not without conquests. When I reached the age of about three years, from our little hovel I could hear the children playing and shouting in the street; and I, little as I was, would go out into their midst. As they would see Me, they would run around Me, and each one wanted to get the closest to Me, because my beauty, the enchantment of my gaze, the sweetness of my voice, were such that they felt captivated to love Me. Therefore they would throng around Me, and they loved Me so much that they were unable to detach from Me. Now, I too loved these children; and since, when love is true, it tries to make itself known – not only this, but to give what can make one happy in time and eternity – I gave to these little ones my first little sermon, adapting Myself to their small capacity; more so since, possessing innocence, they could more easily understand Me.
Now, do you want to know what my sermon was about? It said to them: ‘My children, listen to Me; I love you very much and I want to make known to you your origin. Look at the heavens – up there you have a Celestial Father who loves you very much. But He loves you so much, that He was not content with being your Father from Heaven, guiding you, creating for you a sun, a sea, a flowery earth to make you happy; but loving you with exuberant love, He wanted to descend into your hearts, to form His Royal Palace in the depth of your soul, making Himself sweet prisoner of each one of you. But to do what? To give life to your heartbeat, breath and motion. So, as you walk, He walks in your steps, He moves in your little hands, He speaks in your voice; and as you walk, as you move, because He loves you very much, now He kisses you, now He squeezes you, now He hugs you and carries you as though in triumph as His own dear children. How many hidden kisses and hugs does this Celestial Father of ours not give you! And you, because you were inattentive, have not let your kiss meet His, or your hugs encounter His paternal embrace; and He has remained with the sorrow that His children have neither kissed Him nor hugged Him.
Now, my dear children, do you know what this Celestial Father wants from you? He wants to be recognized in you, as having His dwelling in the center of your soul; and since He gives you everything, nor is there anything He does not give you, He wants your love in everything you do. Love Him – let love never depart from your little hearts, from your lips, from your works – from everything; and this will be the delicious food you will give to His Paternity. He loves you very much and wants to be loved. No one can arrive at loving you as He loves you. This is so true, that while you also have a terrestrial father, yet how different from the Love of the Celestial Father. He does not always follow you, does not watch over your steps, does not sleep together with you, nor does he palpitate within your heart; and if you fall, he does not even know anything about it. On the other hand, your Celestial Father never leaves you; if you are about to fall, He gives you His hand so as not to let you fall; if you sleep, He watches over you; and even if you play and do some impertinences, He is with you and knows everything you do. Therefore love Him very, very much.’ And becoming more enflamed, I would say to them: ‘Give Me your word that you will love Him always – always. Say together with Me: “We love You, our Father who are in Heaven. We love You, our Father who dwell in our hearts”.’
My daughter, at my speaking, some of the children would be moved, some would cry of joy, some would remain enraptured, some would cling to Me so strongly, that they did not want to leave Me any more. I made them feel the palpitating Life of my Celestial Father in their little hearts, and they rejoiced and made feast, because they no longer had a Father far away, but inside their own hearts. And I, to fortify them and give them the strength to depart from Me, would bless them, renewing upon those children Our Creative Strength, invoking the Power of the Father, the Wisdom of Myself, the Son, and the Virtue of the Holy Spirit; and I would say to them: ‘Go – and then you will return.’ And so they would leave. But then they would come back the following days, almost in throngs – a crowd of children. They would set themselves to spy when I was to go out, and to see what I was doing inside our hovel. And when I went out they would clap their hands, make feast for Me, and shout so loudly, that my Mother would come out the door to see what was happening. And, oh! how enraptured She would remain, in seeing Her little Son speaking to those children with so much grace; so much so, that She felt Her Heart burst with love, and could see in them the first fruits of my Life down here, because, of these children who listened to Me – no one was lost. Knowing that they had a Father inside their hearts was like a pledge for them to be able to possess the Celestial Fatherland, to love that Father who already dwelt also in Heaven.
My daughter, this sermon of Mine which I, a little Child, gave to the children of Egypt, was the foundation, the substance of the creation of man; it contains the most necessary doctrine, the highest sanctity; it makes love arise in each instant, for the Creator and the creature to love each other. What sorrow in seeing many little lives that do not know the Life of a God in their souls. They grow up without Divine Paternity, as if they were alone in the world; they do not feel or know how much they are loved. How can they love Me? So, once love is taken away, the heart hardens, life becomes degraded, and – poor youth – they give themselves prey to the gravest crimes. This is a sorrow for your Jesus, and I want it to be a sorrow for you, that you may pray for many who teach that I am present in their hearts, that I love and want to be loved.”
The Good that the Hours of the Passion Produce for Jesus and for the soul who does them.
As I continued the usual Hours of the Passion, my adorable Jesus told me: “My daughter (Luisa), the world is in continuous act of renewing My Passion; and since My Immensity envelopes everything, inside and outside the creatures, I AM forced to receive from their contact nails, thorns, scourges, scorns, spits 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 spits taken away. I feel compensated by Good for the evil that others do to Me. Feeling that their contact does not do harm to Me, but Good, I (Jesus) lean more and more on them.”
Furthermore, returning to speak about these Hours of the Passion, blessed Jesus said: “My daughter (Luisa), know that by doing these Hours the soul takes My Thoughts and makes them her own; she takes My Reparations, My Prayers, Desires, Affections, and even My most intimate Fibers and makes them her own. So, rising up between Heaven and earth, she does My same Office, and as co-redemptrix, she says to Me: ‘Ecce ego, mitte me [Here I am, send me]. I want to repair for all, answer to You for all, and plead Good for all.’”
Book of Heaven; Volume 34 – April 21, 1936
“Blessed daughter of my Volition, you have reason, the waves of my Volition inundate you, drown you and your little capacity remains lost and needs your Jesus in order to better explain that which you see, but don’t know how to say. Now know my daughter, our love is such and so much for one who wants to live and lives in our Divine Volition that we want to make them participant with all our works, for as much as (a) creature it is possible, also giving her the merit of our divine works. As the creature enters in our Will, He calls in act his Divine work as if in that instant the same (was) operating, and uniting her in his act, he makes her see the prodigies of his work, and receives and confirms her in the good, making her feel the new life of his act; you have seen the conception of the Sovereign Queen, and how you being in my Will, you have found yourself conceived in Her Maternal Heart, you see the great difference for who lives in my Volition, the prodigies of the Immaculate Conception were unheard of. My Will that animated this conception, which no one can escape from, called present all creatures, so that they might remain conceived in her virgin Heart, and might receive her maternity, her help, her defense, they might find the refuge, the support in this Celestial Mother.
In the Kingdom of the Divine Will
Letter 20. To Federico Abresch from Bologna
Most esteemed one in the Lord,
You cannot imagine the contentment I feel when I hear that one wants to live in the Divine Will, because it is a victory of Jesus; and as He conquers our will, we conquer His Own. In the Kingdom of the Divine Will no one loses, we are all winners, both God and the creature.
I am surprised by your doubts. How is it? Don’t you know that Redemption is preparation for the Kingdom of the Divine Will? And the Sacred Heart of Jesus is nothing other than the immense Reign of His Most Holy Divine Will. It is not the Heart that dominates; it is the Divine Will that dominates His Divine Heart. Poor Heart, if it did not have a Will to dominate it, it would be good at nothing. If the will is good, the heart is good; if the will is holy, the heart is holy. If our will gives place to the Divine, letting It raise Its throne in our will, the heart acquires the divine qualities by grace. Therefore, both in the Divine and in the human order, it is always the will that has the first place, the prime act, its rule. The heart and all the rest are in the secondary order… Therefore, to say that the Heart reigns, if the Divine Will does not reign, is absurd. They can be called devotions, pious practices…; if the Divine Will does not reign, the Kingdom does not exist. It exists in Heaven, but has no place on earth. However, the Holy Church, organ and messenger of the Supreme Fiat, through the Sacred Heart, through the Celestial Mama, beseeches the Kingdom of the Divine Will. She does not say it with words, but says it with facts. The Divine Volition is the King – His Heart, His wounds, His precious Blood, the sweet Queen, form the ministers that surround the King, and through them beseech the Kingdom of the Divine Will in souls.
Now, how can one know It? All the necessary things, the different circumstances in which we may find ourselves, are Will of God for us. If we are really determined to live in It, God is so pleased that, if miracles are needed, He will make them in order not to let us use our will. It is up to us to truly decide, and be willing to give even our life in order to live in It; and dear Jesus and the Sovereign Queen will take on the commitment, will be our sentries, and will surround us with such graces as to not let us be betrayed by our own wills. More so, since our Lord does not teach difficult things, nor does He impose them or want them, but He facilitates all that He wants from us in an admirable way; even more, He puts Himself in our place to make it easy for us, and does together with us all that He wants us to do.
I commend myself to your prayers and also to my good daughter Amelia. Make yourselves saints. May the Divine Volition stretch out Its arms to you, to raise you in Its womb. Look at all things as bearers of It, to give you Its life, Its sanctity… The little one – raise him holy, as a gift of the Fiat; who knows whether your desires to see him religious and holy may not be fulfilled. So I leave you all in the Divine Volition; let me always find you in It. And with a thousand regards to the father, to the mother and to the son, I say, most affectionately yours,
the little daughter of the Divine Will
The Feast of the Sacred Heart and Promises
The Sacred Heart of Jesus feast and devotion was established as a result of Jesus Himself appearing to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and requesting it. This day again leads us to Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament where He continues to manifest His tremendous Love, Mercy and Compassion for all of humankind. The messages that Our Lord gave were primarily centered on His Most Blessed Sacrament.
- In order that the faithful should return thanks to Him for the great gift which he has left them in the Adorable Eucharist.
- In order that loving souls should make amends by their prayers and pious affections for the irreverences and insults which He has received and still receives from sinners in this Most Holy Sacrament.
- In order that they might make up also for the honor which he does not receive in so many churches where he is so little adored and reverenced.
Jesus promised that He would make the riches of His Sacred Heart abound towards those who should render Him this honor, both on the day of this feast, and on every other day when they should visit Him in The Most Holy Sacrament.
The Twelve Promises of the Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary
- I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.
- I will give peace in their families.
- I will console them in all their troubles.
- They shall find in My Heart an assured refuge during life and especially at the hour of death.
- I will pour abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
- Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
- Tepid souls shall become fervent.
- Fervent souls shall speedily rise to great perfection.
- I will bless the homes in which the image of My Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honored.
- I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.
- Those who propagate this devotion shall have their name written in My Heart, and it shall never be effaced.
- The all-powerful love of My Heart will grant to all those who shall receive Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months the grace of final repentance; they shall not die under My displeasure, nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Heart shall be their assured refuge at that last hour.
“And He showed me that it was His great desire of being loved by men and of withdrawing them from the path of ruin into which Satan hurls such crowds of them, that made Him form the design of manifesting His Heart to men, with all the treasures of love, of mercy, of grace, of sanctification and salvation which It contains, in order that those who desire to render Him and procure for Him all the honour and love possible, might themselves be abundantly enriched with those divine treasures of which this Heart is the source. He should be honored under the figure of this Heart of flesh, and Its image should be exposed … He promised me that wherever this image should be exposed with a view to showing It special honour, He would pour forth His blessings and graces. This devotion was the last effort of His love that He would grant to men in these latter ages, in order to withdraw them from the empire of Satan which He desired to destroy, and thus to introduce them into the sweet liberty of the rule of His love, which He wished to restore in the hearts of all those who should embrace this devotion.” (St. Margaret Mary)
Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is here waiting for us with Open Arms of Love!
- To Father Antonio, from V.
May the Holy Will of God be the continuous beating of our hearts.
Reverend Father Antonio,
Jesus alone can comfort us in our sufferings. Therefore, let us turn to Him alone; let us throw ourselves into His arms like tender babies; and if pain makes us cry, let us wet His paternal hands with our tears, and sweet Jesus, in seeing His hands beaded, will dry up our tears and say to us: “Child, have you come to Me to cry? I want to turn your tears into joys, your bitterness into sweetness. I will pour the sea of my graces into your heart…” So, let us entrust everything to Jesus, even the lot of our dear homeland. He will dispose everything for the good of our souls.
I hope you have already received news from your brothers. Entrust them to the purging souls; they will take care of rescuing them. Promise them series of seven Masses, if they are rescued…
I commend myself to your prayers. Let us pray very much in these times so painful. Prayer will defend us from the shadow of the enemy, and will cover us with the divine shadow. The divine shadow will render us invisible to the gaze of the enemy. Best regards…
The little daughter of the Divine Will

- To Sister Agnese, from the Cloistered Benedictine Nuns of Lecce
In Voluntate Dei, D.G.
Most esteemed sister and daughter in Jesus Christ,
I received your letter through your holy sister, who came to visit me. I will try as much as I can to make you content – to pray for you. I only beg you to make everything disappear, so that the Divine Will alone may rise again in all your things. Never let It escape from you; hold It as prime act of life, in all your actions, in sufferings and in consolations, in everything, and It will give you peace, so necessary to your soul. Be on guard from everything which is not peace, because fears and restlessness, even under the aspect of good, are always infernal breaths and rags of hell – stuff which does not belong to us; and we must be on our guard so as not to let alien and noxious things enter into our soul, which can harm us. Therefore, if you love Jesus, be at peace; whatever the circumstances may be, never get disturbed, and remain in full confidence like a baby in the arms of Jesus.
Peace will be your heritage, the Divine Will your life, trust the powerful magnet which will capture blessed Jesus to dwell in your heart. Oh, how happy He will be to remain in your heart, because He will find His Heaven in it, the things of the Celestial Fatherland – which are His Will, peace and trust. In Heaven they live in full confidence, more than as children with their Father, enjoying peace and living from the Divine Will. Therefore, let us learn from this exile how one must live in Heaven!
I commend myself to your prayers, of which I am very much in need, and leaving both sisters in the sea of light of the Divine Volition, in which I hope you will become saints, I say,
most devotedly and affectionately yours,
Corato, January 24, 1929
- 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 to 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. Disturbance, fears, little mistrusts, are the night of the soul and make her see all things 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, abandon 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 to never leave the infinite sea of the Divine Volition. Tell her to pray for me, as I assure that I do it for her. I commend myself very much to your prayers, and leaving you crossing the interminable sea of the Fiat, I say,
your most devoted servant,

6/6/21 – Corpus Christi
V24 – 6.12.28
“After this, since it was the Feast of Corpus Domini,
I was thinking to myself that that day was the Feast of the Marriage that Blessed Jesus did with souls in the Most Holy Sacrament of Love.
And my Beloved Jesus, Moving in my interior, told me:
“My daughter, the True Marriage with humanity was done in Creation.
Nothing was lacking, either to the soul or to the body; everything was done with Royal Sumptuousness.
An Immense Palace was Prepared for the human nature, such that no king or emperor can have one similar to it, which is the Whole Universe:
a starry heaven and its vault, a sun whose light would never be extinguished; flourishing gardens in which the happy couple, God and man, would Stroll, Amuse itself and Maintain the Continuous, Uninterrupted Feast of our Marriage; and Garments, Woven not with matter, but Formed of Purest Light by Our Power, as Befitted Royal Persons.
Everything was Beauty in man, soul and body, because the One Who Prepared the Marriage and Formed it was of an Unreachable Beauty.
So, from the external Sumptuousness of the So Many Enchanting Beauties Present in the Whole of Creation, you can imagine the internal Seas of Sanctity, of Beauty, of Light, of Science, etc., which the interior of man Possessed.
All the Acts of man, internal and external, were as Many Musical Keys which Formed the Most Beautiful Melodies, Sweet, Melodious, Harmonious, which Maintained the Joy of the Marriage.
And each Additional Act that he would Dispose himself to do was a New little Sonata that he would Prepare, to Call his Spouse to Delight with him.”
