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 remained confounded in seeing so much divine goodness and compliance. May He be always thanked and blessed; and may everything be for His Glory.
