Today urgent prayers are being offered for Padre Bernardino Bucci, OFM. We’ve been notified that he was transferred to the hospital in San Giovanni Rotondo with kidney failure and high fever.
Padre Bucci is the Spiritual Father of all the little children of the Divine Will, we attribute our having the writings of Luisa, the biographies, letters, relics and more to his life-long dedication and that of his Aunt Rosaria. Actually, 70 years ago, on November 27, 1948 Arb. Addazi granted permission to print prayer cards of Luisa with relic, giving her the title of “Servant of God”, at the persistance of Rosaria Bucci. Rosaria dedicated her life to assisting Luisa, then making her known after her death. It was the Bucci family that provided much of the documentation and materials for the Cause of Luisa.
Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, pray for Padre Bucci.
Rosaria Bucci, pray for Padre Bucci.
All Saints and Angels, all priests and souls connected to Luisa, pray for Padre Bucci.
LUISA’S DANGER OF DEATH PRAYER FOR FR. BUCCI
VOL. 35 – February 20, 1938
Jesus became silent, and I remained with the scene before my mind of so many Jesuses for as many existing creatures. But I carried a thorn inside my heart that tortured me and embittered me – down to the marrow of my bones – for a person very dear to me, and necessary to my poor existence, who was in danger of death (FR. BUCCI); and I wanted to save this person (FR. BUCCI) at any cost. Therefore I took the Divine Will, I made It all mine, and in my sorrow I said: ‘Jesus, your Will is mine; your Power and Immensity are in my power. I do not want this, and You must not want it either.’ My God, I felt I was battling with a Power; and in order to win, my mind brought itself before the Divinity, and I placed around It the expanse of the heavens with all the stars in prayer, the vastness of the light of the sun with the might of its heat, the entire Creation – in prayer; and then the seas of Love and Power of the Queen of Heaven, the pains and the Blood shed by Jesus, like many seas around the Divinity – all in prayer; and then the many Jesuses of each creature, so that they might have a sigh, a plea, to obtain what I wanted. But what was not my surprise and emotion together, in seeing and hearing that the many Jesuses of each creature were praying to obtain what I wanted? I remainedconfounded in seeing so much divine goodness and compliance. May He be always thanked and blessed; and may everything be for His Glory.
Daily Prayers for the Dying in the Divine Will
Most Merciful Jesus, lover of souls, I pray to Thee, in Your Most Holy Divine Will by the agony of Thy Most Sacred Heart, and by the Sorrows of Thy Immaculate Mother, through the intercession of Luisa, cleanse in Your own Blood the sinners of the whole world who are now in their last agony, and are to die this day. Amen.
Loving Hearts of Jesus and Mary, once in agony, pity the dying and have mercy on us poor sinners in Your Divine Will.
Prayer to Jesus Christ on the Cross and Our Blessed Mother at the foot of the Cross for a happy death in the Divine Will.
Oh my Crucified Jesus, Mother Mary with Luisa in the Holy Divine Will, I beg of You to receive the prayer I now offer Thee for my last moment, when, having desired a holy death, all my senses have failed me.
At my last moments when therefore my sweetest Jesus, my eyes, languid and sunken, can no longer look upon Thee, remember this loving look which I now turn to Thee in Your Will with Our Blessed Mother Mary through little Luisa, and have mercy on me a poor sinner!
When my lips, dried up, can no longer kiss Thy Most Sacred Wounds, remember these kisses which I now give Thee and Our Blessed Mother Mary with Luisa, and have mercy on me a poor sinner!
When my cold and numbed hands can no longer clasp Thy Cross, remember the times that I held Your Crucifix in Your Will one with Our Blessed Mother and Luisa with love and devotion, and have mercy on me a poor sinner!
And when my tongue, swollen and immovable, can no longer speak, remember my present prayers, and have mercy on me a poor sinner!
Jesus, Mary, and Luisa I commend to you my soul in the Most Holy Divine Will.
Lord Jesus crucified, have mercy on me, a poor sinner!
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Immaculate Heart of Mary one with Luisa I place my trust in Thee. Amen.
