The Feast of Christ the King
The Eucharistic Reign of Jesus
In the Kingdom of the Divine Will
By the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta
The Little Daughter of the Divine Will
This is why I love so much one who lives in my Will: I recognize my portrait in her, my noble features; I feel my own breath, my voice;and if I did not love her I would defraud Myself. I would be like a father without offspring, without the noble cortege of his court, and without the crown of his children. And if I did not have the offspring, the court and the crown, how could I call Myself a King? My Kingdom is formed by those who live in my Will, and from this Kingdom, I choose the Mother, the Queen, the children, the ministers, the army, the people. I am everything for them, and they are all for Me. (November 19, 1921)
To the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Letter of Luisa Piccarreta to Federico Abresch from Bologna
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 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, it’s 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 even to give our lives 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.
Extending the Rays of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Volume 24 – March 25, 1928
After this, my sweet Jesus made Himself seen with His Divine Heart unleashing many rays of light; each knowledge about the Divine Will was impressed at the point from which the rays started, in such a way as to form the most beautiful crown of light around that Divine Heart. And my beloved Jesus added:
“My daughter, look what a beautiful crown of glory and of light my Divine Heart possesses! A more beautiful and refulgent crown It could not possess. These rays are all the knowledges about my Will;
however, these rays are hampered – they cannot extend, because their knowledges are not known; this is why they cannot extend and expand so as to fill the whole earth with light. It happens as it would to the Sun if its rays, which start from the center of its sphere, were forced to remain in the air, without being able to extend so as to touch the earth and invest it with light and heat. Unable to extend its rays, the Sun would not be able to give the effects that its light contains, nor could the earth receive them. There would be a certain distance between the earth and the light of the Sun, and this distance would prevent the Sun from doing good to the earth, and the earth would be sterile and infertile. Such are the knowledges about my Fiat:
if they are not made known, their rays cannot extend and take souls as though in their hands to warm them, to remove from them the torpor of the human will, to mold them anew, to transform them again in the life which my Fiat wants to infuse into them; because these knowledges are, and contain, the new creation of transforming the creature as he came out of Our creative hands.” Fiat!
Hours of the Passion – Prayer to Disarm the Divine Justice
…. This is the generous Heart with which I have longed to suffer, to give You complete satisfaction for all the sins of men….Oh my Father, was there, perhaps, one single beat of my Heart that did not seek your Glory and the salvation of my brothers at the cost of pains and of Blood? Did there not come forth from this always oppressed Heart of mine the ardent supplications, the groanings, the sighs and the strong cries with which for thirty-four years I have wept and cried out for Mercy in your Presence?
The Kingdom of the Divine Will – from Luisa’s Appeal
“And now a word to all of you who read these writings… I beg you, I implore you to receive with love what Jesus wants to gives us, that is, His Will.
But to give you His Will, He wants yours, otherwise His own cannot reign. If you only knew… With this love my Jesus wants to give you the greatest gift that exists in both heaven and earth: His Will!
Oh, what bitter tears He sheds, for He sees that in following your own will you wander all over the wretched earth! You are no good at keeping a good resolution, and do you know why? Because His Will does not reign in you.
Oh, how Jesus weeps and sighs over your destiny! And sobbing, He begs you to make His will reign in you. He wants to make you change your lot: from sick to healthy, from poor to rich, from weak to strong, from hesitant to steadfast, from slaves to kings. He wants no great penances, no lengthy prayers nor anything else; except that His Will reign in you and that yours live no more.
Ah, listen to Him, and I am ready to give my life for each one of you, to suffer any hardship so that you open the doors of your soul and the Will of my Jesus can reign and triumph over the human generations!
Now will you all deign to accept my invitation? Come with me to Eden, the place of your origins where the Supreme One created man, made him king and gave him a kingdom to rule over; this kingdom was the whole universe; but his scepter, his crown and his orders came from the depths of his soul in which the divine Fiat dwellsas a ruling King and constitutes man’s true kingship. His robes were royal, brighter than the sun, his acts noble, his beauty entrancing. God so loved him, entertained himself with him, called him my little king and son. All was happiness, order and harmony
This man, our first father, betrayed himself, betrayed his kingdom and in doing his own will, saddened his Creator who had so exalted and loved him; and he lost his kingdom, the Kingdom of the Divine Will, in which all things had been given to him. The gates of the kingdom were closed to him and God reclaimed the kingdom he had given man. Meanwhile, listen to my secret.
In reclaiming the Kingdom of the Divine Will, God did not say He would never return it to man, but kept it in reserve, awaiting future generations to assail them with amazing graces, with blinding light, thus eclipsing the human will that had caused man to lose such a holy kingdom; and through the appeal of miraculous and prodigious knowledge of the Divine Will, to make them feel the need, the desire to ban our own will which makes us unhappy, and to embrace the Divine Will. Therefore the kingdom is ours; so, courage!
The Supreme Fiat awaits us, calls us, urges us to take possession. Will anyone have the heart to refuse, be so devious as to not hear the call and not to accept such happiness?
Let us leave the miserable rags and tatters of our own will, the mourning clothes in which our slavery has decked us, let us dress ourselves in royal robes and adorn ourselves with divine ornaments!
I therefore appeal to everyone: listen to me! May you know that I am a Piccina (Little One), the smallest of all creatures.… I will bi-locate to be in the Divine Will together with Jesus, I will come like a tiny child to your womb, and with groans and cries I will knock at the doors of your hearts, to ask you, like a little beggar girl, for your donations, your rags and tatters, your mourning clothes, your unhappy will, to give it to Jesus; so that He will burn it all and in restoring His Will to you, will give you His kingdom, His happiness, the brightness of His royal robes. If you but knew what God’s Will means! It contains Heaven and earth; if we are with it, everything is ours and everything derives from us; if we are not with it, everything is against us; and if we have anything at all, we are true thieves of our Creator and live by fraud and stealing.
Therefore if you would like to become acquainted with it, read these pages: you will find in them the balm for the cruelty inflicted upon us by the human will, together with new, entirely divine air, a new, entirely heavenly life; you will feel Heaven within your soul, you will see new horizons, new suns and will often find Jesus, His face bathed in tears, who is longing to give you His Will. He weeps because He wants to see you happy, and seeing you unhappy He sobs, sighs and prays for His children’s happiness; and, in asking you for your will, to tear you away from your misery, He offers you His own Will, as He confirms with the gift of His Kingdom.
I therefore appeal to everyone. And I am making this appeal with Jesus, with His own tears, His ardent sighs, His burning Heart which longs to give His Fiat. From within the Fiat we emerged, we had life; it is right, it is our duty to return to it, our dear and never-ending heritage.
First of all I appeal to the Supreme Pontiff, to His Holiness, the Representative of Holy Church and consequently the Representative of the Kingdom of the Divine Will. At his holy feet this tiny Piccina places this kingdom, so that he will make it known; and so that with his authoritative fatherly voice he may summon his children to dwell in this most holy Kingdom. May the Supreme Fiat invest him and form the first Sun of the Divine Will in His Representative on earth; and, in forming His primary life in him who is the Head of the whole Church, may He spread His never ending rays throughout the world; and eclipsing everyone with His light, may He form one fold and one Shepherd!
I make my second appeal to all Priests. Prostrate at the feet of each one, I pray, I implore them to be concerned with knowing the Divine Will. And I say to them: let it inspire your first movement, your first act, indeed, enclose yourselves in the Fiat, and you will feel how sweet and dear your life is; you will draw from it all your activity; you will feel a divine power within you, a voice that speaks continuously that will tell you wonderful things that have never been heard, you will feel a light that will eclipse all evils, and in stirring peoples, will give you dominion over them.
How many fruitless efforts, because the life of the Divine Will is lacking! You have broken bread for the people which did not contain the leaven of the Fiat, so that in eating it they found it hard, almost indigestible; and feeling no life within them, they were not receptive to your teachings. May you therefore partake of this bread of the Divine Fiat, thus you will form them with its full life and one will.
I make the third appeal to the whole world, to all my brothers and sisters and children. Do you know why I am calling you all? Because I want to give the life of the Divine Will to you all! It is more than air that we can all breathe; it is like a sun, from which we can all receive the good of light; it is like the beating of a heart that wants to beat in everyone; and like a little child, I would like, I long for everyone to draw life from the Fiat! Oh, if you but knew the good you would receive, you would give your life to make it reign within all of you!
This little Piccina wants to tell you another secret which Jesus has entrusted to her; and I am telling it to you so that you give me your will and in exchange receive God’s, which will make you happy in body and soul.
Do you want to know why the earth is unproductive? Why it is that at various points in the world there are earthquakes and the earth’s crust often gapes open and buries cities and people in its depths? Why the wind and the waters whip up storms that destroy everything? Why there are so many evils, as you all know?
Because created things possess a Divine Will which dominates them, and therefore they are powerful and imperious; they are nobler than us because we are dominated by a human will and so we are degraded, weak and helpless. If, through our good fortune, we ban our human will and take the life of the Divine Will, we too will be strong and imperious; we will be brothers and sisters of all created things, which will not only trouble us no longer, but will give us dominion over them and we will be happy for ever and ever!
Are you glad? So make haste: listen to this poor Piccina who loves you so. Then how happy I will be when I can say that all my brothers and sisters are Kings and Queens because they all posses the life of the Divine Will.
So courage, respond to my appeal!
Yes, I hope that you will all respond to me unanimously, and far more, for it is not only I who am calling you, imploring you. With me, my sweet Jesus calls you in a tender, touching voice, telling us over and over again, even in tears: “take my Will for your life; and come into its Kingdom“.
Know that Our Lord was the first to pray to the heavenly Father that His Kingdom might come and His Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven, when He said the Pater Noster, and passing His prayer on to us, He appealed to us, begging us all to ask: “Fiat Voluntas Tua sicut in coelo et in terra“.
Therefore, every time you recite the Pater Jesus is overcome by such a longing to give you His Kingdom, His Fiat, that He hastens to say, with us, “My Father, it is I who ask this for my children, do it quickly“. Thus the first to pray is Jesus himself, and then you too ask this in the Pater. So don’t you want all this goodness?
One last word.
Know that in seeing the longings, raptures and tears of Jesus, who yearns to give you his Kingdom, his Fiat, this little Child so longs, sighs and yearns to see you all in the Kingdom of the Divine Will, all happy at making Jesus smile, that if she does not succeed with prayers and tears, she will try making scenes to succeed, both with Jesus and with you.
So listen to this little Piccina, cause her no further sighs, tell her, through grace: “so be it, so be it… we all want the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Fiat“.1
Volume 6 – August 5, 1904
Jesus, Ruler of kings and Lord of lords.
Continuing in my usual state, blessed Jesus came for just a little, in the act of ruling and dominating everything, and of reigning with the crown of King on His head and with the scepter of command in His hand. While I was seeing Him in this position, He told me (though in Latin, but I will say it according to what I understood): “My daughter, I am the Ruler of kings and the Lord of lords. To Me alone is this right of justice due, which the creature owes Me; and by not giving it to Me, she denies Me as Creator and Master of everything.” While saying this, He seemed to take the world in His hand and turn it upside down, so that creatures would submit to His regime and dominion. At the same time I could also see how the Lord ruled and dominated my soul, with such mastery that I felt all submerged in Him. From Him came the regime of my mind, of my affections, of my desires; many electric wires passed between me and Him, through which He directed and dominated everything.
The Eucharistic Reign of Jesus
In the Kingdom of the Divine Will
The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will
Little King Jesus is Born. The Angels point to Him and call the Shepherds to adore Him. Heaven and Earth rejoice, and the Sun of the Eternal Word, following Its Course, dispels the Night of Sin, and gives rise to the Full Day of Grace. The Home of Bethlehem.
Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:
Now, dear child, listen to Me: in this house of Nazareth, the Kingdom of the Divine Will was formed in your Mama and in the Humanity of my Son, to make of It a gift for the human family, when it would dispose itself to receive the good of this Kingdom. But even though my Son was King and I was Queen, We were King and Queen without a people. Our Kingdom, even though It could enclose all and give life to all, was deserted, because Redemption was needed first, in order to prepare and dispose man to come into this Kingdom, so holy. More so, since It was possessed by Me and by my Son, who belonged to the human family according to the human order, as well as to the Divine Family by virtue of the Divine Fiat and of the Incarnate Word, and therefore creatures received the right to enter into this Kingdom. And the Divinity conceded this right, and left the doors open to those who wanted to enter. So, our hidden life of so many years served to prepare the Kingdom of the Divine Will for creatures. This is why I want to let you know what this Supreme Fiat operated in Me, so that you may forget your will, and as you hold the hand of your Mama, I may lead you into the goods which I have prepared for you with so much love. Tell Me, child of my Heart, will you make Me content, and also your, and my, dear Jesus, who await you with so much love in this Kingdom so holy, to live together with Us, and to live only of Divine Will?
Volume 13 – November 19, 1921
The two supports of Jesus during His agony: His inseparable Mama, and Luisa
…This is why I love so much one who lives in my Will: I recognize my portrait in her, my noble features; I feel my own breath, my voice; and if I did not love her I would defraud Myself. I would be like a father without offspring, without the noble cortege of his court, and without the crown of his children. And if I did not have the offspring, the court and the crown, how could I call Myself a King? My Kingdom is formed by those who live in my Will, and from this Kingdom, I choose the Mother, the Queen, the children, the ministers, the army, the people. I am everything for them, and they are all for Me.”…
Volume 15 – December 1, 1922
Jesus did and suffered everything in the Divine Will; What true reigning is.
… when Pilate asked Me whether I was King, and I answered:
‘My Kingdom is not of this world, for if It were of this world, millions of legions of Angels would defend Me’.
And Pilate, on seeing Me so poor, humiliated, despised, was surprised, and said with greater emphasis: ‘What? You are a King?’ And I, with firmness, answered him and all those who are in his position: ‘I am King, and I have come into the world to teach the truth. And the truth is that it is not positions, nor kingdoms, nor dignities, nor the right of command that make man reign, that ennoble him, that raise him above all. On the contrary, these things are slaveries, miseries, which make him serve vile passions and unjust men, making him also commit many unjust acts which disennoble him, cast him into mud, and draw the hatred of his subordinates upon him. So, riches are slaveries, positions are swords, by which many are killed or wounded.
True reigning is virtue, to be stripped of everything, to sacrifice oneself for all, to submit oneself to all. This is true reigning, which binds all, and makes one loved by all. Therefore, my Kingdom will have no end, while yours is near to perishing.’ And, in my Will, I made these words reach the ear of all those who are in positions of authority, to let them know the great danger they are in, and to
put on guard those who aspire to positions, to dignities, to command.”
Volume 15 -July 5, 1923
Jesus is presented to Pilate by the Jews; What His Kingdom is.
…Pilate asked Me: “Are You king? And where is your kingdom?”, I wanted to give another sublime lesson by saying: “I am King”. And I wanted to say:
“But do you know what my Kingdom is? My Kingdom is my pains, my Blood, my virtues. This is the true Kingdom which I possess, not outside of Me, but within Me. What one possesses on the outside is not a true kingdom, nor a safe dominion, because that which is not inside of man can be taken away, usurped, and he will be forced to leave it. But that which he has inside, no one will be able to take away from him – its dominion will be eternal within him. The characteristics of my Kingdom are my wounds, the thorns, the Cross. I do not act like the other kings who make their peoples live outside of them, unsafe, and eventually, even starving. Not Me – I call my peoples to dwell inside the rooms of my wounds, fortified and sheltered by my pains, their thirst quenched by my Blood, their hunger satisfied by my Flesh. This alone is true reigning; all other reigns are reigns of slavery, of dangers and of death, while in my Reign there is true life.”
How many sublime teachings, how many profound mysteries in my words. Each soul should say to herself, in pains and in sufferings, in humiliations and in abandonments by all, and in practicing
true virtues: ‘This is my kingdom, which is not subject to perishing. No one can take it away from me or touch it. On the contrary, my kingdom is eternal and divine, similar to that of my sweet Jesus. My sufferings and pains certify it for me and render my kingdom more fortified and fierce, in such a way that, in the face of my great strength, no one will be able to wage battle against me.’ This is the Kingdom of peace, to which all my children should aspire.”
Volume 8 – April 8, 1908
One who lives in the Divine Will lives in continuous communion with Jesus. The sure sign to know whether a state is Will of God.
I was concerned because I was not able to receive Communion every day; and as good Jesus came, He told me:
“My daughter, I don’t want you to be bothered by anything. It is true that having Communion is a great thing; but how long does the tight union last? A quarter of an hour at the most. But the thing you should cherish the most is the complete defeat of your will in Mine. In fact, for one who lives in my Will, there is union not only for a quarter of an hour – but always, always. My Will is a continuous communion with the soul, so that every hour and every moment is always communion for one who does my Will, not only once a day.”
Volume 9 – March 23, 1910
The Divine Will is superior to the Sacraments; It is greater than Baptism and Communion. Living in It encloses all the goods of Heaven and earth.
As I was in my usual state, and lamenting because of His privations, Jesus flashed by and told me: “My daughter, I recommend that you not get out of my Will. 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 fullness of Grace. 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 from the virtues, fortitude and from all of the Divine qualities.”
In hearing this, I said to myself: ‘In a little while He is going to say that His Will is even greater than the very Sacramental Communion.’ And He added: “Of course, of course; because the Sacramental Communion lasts a few minutes, while my Will is perennial – or better still, eternal, reaching eternity in Heaven. The Sacramental Communion is subject to some obstacles, either illness, or necessity, or because of those who have to administer It; while the Communion of my Will is not subject to any bother. If the soul only wants so, 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. The soul is free. Nobody 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 achieve that the soul live in my Will, I feel triumphant – because this is the greatest good which can exist in Heaven and on earth.”
Volume 11 – March 15, 1912
The Divine Will is the sanctity of sanctities, and the soul who does It on earth as in Heaven is a queen soul, who gives life to all the good done on earth and in Heaven. These souls are the true Consecrated Hosts of the Divine Will.
Continuing in my usual state, I felt a great desire to do the Most Holy Will of Blessed Jesus; and He came and told me: “My daughter, my Will is the Sanctity of Sanctities. The soul who does my Will according to the perfection that I am teaching you – that is, on earth as It is in Heaven – however small, ignorant and ignored, leaves even other Saints behind in spite of their prodigies, the most clamorous conversions and the miracles. Really, in comparison, the souls who do my Will in the way It is in my third “FIAT” are queen, and it is as if all the others were at their service.
It seems that the souls who live in my Will do nothing, while they actually do everything, because being in my Will these souls act Divinely, in a hidden and surprising way. They are light which illuminates, wind which purifies, fire which burns, miracles which cause miracles. Those who do miracles are channels; but in these souls resides the power. Therefore, they are the foot of the missionary, the tongue of the preachers, the strength of the weak, the patience of the sick, the regime (of the superiors), the obedience of the subjects, the tolerance of the slandered, the firmness in the dangers, the heroism in the heroes, the courage in the martyrs, the sanctity in the saints, and so on with all the rest. Being in my Will, they concur with all the good that can be both in Heaven and on earth.
This is why I can surely say that they are my true Hosts – but living Hosts, not dead ones. The accidents that form the host are not full of life, neither do they influence my Life; but the soul who lives in my Divine Will is full of life and, doing my Will, she influences and concurs with all that I do. This is why these consecrated Hosts of my Will are more dear to Me than the very sacramental Hosts, and if I have reason to exist in the sacramental Hosts, it is to form the sacramental Hosts of my Will.
My daughter, I take such delight in my Will that, in simply hearing talk about It, I feel overjoyed and I call the whole of Heaven to make feast. Imagine what will become of those souls who will do It: I find in them all the joys, so I give all the joys to them. Their life is the life of the Blessed. They care about, desire and yearn for two things only: my Will and Love. They need do very little else, while in fact they do everything. The virtues themselves remain absorbed in my Will and in Love. Therefore, they have nothing to do with them, since my Will contains, possesses and absorbs all; but in a Divine manner – immense and endless. This is the life of the Blessed.”
Volume 11 – August 20, 1913
One who lives in the Divine Will must have trust, simplicity and disinterest in giving to all. Her life and her work are ended, because the Divine Will consecrates her and transubstantiates her.
…Then He added: “My daughter, it happens to one who does my Will as to a grafted tree: the power of the graft has the virtue of destroying the life of the tree which receives the graft. Therefore, one can no longer see the fruits and the leaves of the first tree, but those of the graft. And if the first tree said to the graft: ‘I want to keep at least a little branch, so that I too will be able to give some fruits, in order to make everybody know that I still exist,’ the graft would say: ‘You have no longer reason to exist after you submitted yourself to receive my graft. Life will be all mine.’
In the same way, the soul who does my Will can say: ‘My life is ended. I will no longer produce my works, my thoughts, my words, but the works, thoughts and words of the One whose Will is my Life.’ Therefore, I say to the one who does my Will: ‘You are my life, my blood, my bones,…’ The true, real, sacramental transformation takes place, not by virtue of the words of the Priest, but by virtue of my Will. As soon as the soul decides to live in my Will, my Will creates Myself within the soul; and as my Will flows in the will, works and steps of the soul, she undergoes as many of my creations. It happens just as to a pyx full of consecrated particles: there are as many Jesuses for as many particles – one for each particle. In the same way, by virtue of my Will, the soul contains Myself in her whole being, as well as in each particle of it. One who does my Will fulfills the true eternal Communion – a Communion with complete fruit.”
Volume 11 – December 17, 1914
How the soul in the Divine Will can make a living Eucharist of her being.
Continuing in my usual state and being very afflicted because of the privations of Jesus, after much suffering He came, making Himself seen in all my poor being. It seemed to me as if I were the garment of Jesus. Then, breaking the silence, He told me: “My daughter, you too can form the hosts and consecrate them mystically. Do you see the garments that cover Me in the Sacrament? They are the accidents of the bread from which the Host is made. The Life which exists in this Host is my Body, my Blood and my Divinity. My supreme Will is the act which contains this Life. This Will develops the Love, the reparation, the immolation and all the rest that I do in the Sacrament. The Sacrament never moves one point from my Volition. There is nothing that comes from Me which is not led by my Volition.
Here is how you too can form the Host. The host is material and totally human; you too have a material body and a human will. This body and will of yours – as long as you keep them pure, upright and far away from any shadow of sin – are the accidents, the veil in order to consecrate Me and make Me live hidden in you. But this is not enough; it would be like the host without consecration – my Life is needed. My Life is composed of Sanctity, Love, Wisdom, Power, etc., but the engine of all is my Will. So, after you prepared the host, you have to make your will die in it; you must cook it well, so that it may not rise again. Then you have to let my Will permeate all your being; and my Will, which contains all my Life, will form the true and perfect consecration. Therefore, there will be no more life for human thought, but only for the thought of my Volition, which will consecrate my Wisdom inside your mind; no more life for what is human – weakness, inconstancy, because my Will will form the consecration of the Divine Life, of fortitude, of firmness, and of all that I am. So, each time you let your will flow into Mine, I will renew the consecration of your desires, and of all that you are and that you can do. I will continue my Life in you as if in a living Host – not a dead one, like the hosts without Me.
But this is not all. In the consecrated Hosts, in the pyxes, in the Tabernacles, everything is dead – mute; not the sensitivity of a heartbeat, not a rush of love which may return my great love. If I didn’t wait for hearts in order to give Myself to them, I would be very unhappy; I would remain defrauded of my Love, and my Sacramental Life would remain without purpose. Though I tolerate this in the Tabernacles, I would not tolerate it in living Hosts. In the Sacrament I want to be fed with my own food: the soul will take possession of my Will, my Love, my prayers, my reparations, my sacrifices; she will give them to Me as if they were her own things, and I will nourish Myself. The soul will unite with Me, pricking up her ears in order to hear what I am doing, and to do it together with Me; so, as she keeps repeating my own acts, she will give Me her food, and I will be happy. Only in these living Hosts will I find the compensation for my loneliness, my starvation and all that I suffer in the Tabernacles.”
Volume 11 – November 13, 1915
In instituting the Most Holy Eucharist, before giving Himself to the creatures, Jesus wanted to receive Himself. In the Divine Will the soul must offer Communion as Jesus did.
After I had received Holy Communion, I thought to myself: ‘How should I offer It in order to please Jesus?’ And He, always kind, told me:
“My daughter, if you want to please Me, offer It like my own Humanity did. Before giving Communion to the others, I gave Communion to Myself, and I wanted to do this in order to give to the Father the complete glory of all the Communions of creatures, and to enclose in Me all the reparations for all the sacrileges, for all the offenses that my Humanity would have received in the Sacrament. Since I enclosed the Divine Will, I enclosed all the reparations from all times; and since I received Myself, I received Myself worthily. And since all the works of the creatures were Divinized by my Humanity, I wanted to seal the communions of the creatures with my Communion. Otherwise, how could the creature receive a God? It was my Humanity that opened this door to the creatures, giving them merit to receive Me.
You – my daughter, do it in my Will; unite it to my Humanity. In this way you will enclose everything, and I will find in you the reparations of all, the reward for everything, and my satisfaction. Even more, I will find another Myself in you.”
Volume 11 – September 8, 1916
Whoever Lives in the Divine Will Repeats What Jesus Accomplished in His Will, Even in the Institution of the Most Holy Eucharist When He Himself Had Partaken of It.
This morning, after Communion, I felt my Jesus completely absorb me in a special way within his Will, whereby I was inundated within It. But who can describe what I felt? I don’t have the words to express myself. And Jesus said to me:
“My daughter, for the amount of time the soul spends in my Will, that much Divine Life she can claim to have accomplished on earth. I enjoy it so much when I see the soul enter into my Will, wherein I form her into Divine Life! I greatly enjoy seeing souls who repeat, in my Will, what my Humanity accomplished therein!
When I instituted the Eucharistic Sacrament and administered It to the Apostles, I administered Myself in the Will of the Father. And with that, not only did I make reparation for all, but upon finding in the Divine Will the Immensity and all, embracing Vision of everything and everyone, I embraced everyone and administered to everyone. And whereupon, seeing that many would not haven taken part in this Sacrament and that the Father would be offended for them not wanting to receive life, I thus gave to the Father the satisfaction and the Glory, as if everyone had received Holy Communion, by giving Him, for each soul, the satisfaction and the glory of one Divine Life.
And I bid you, as well, receive Communion in my Will; repeat that which I did; and in this way, you will not be alone in making reparation for all, but will give my self to everyone, just as I intended to give Myself to everyone, thereby giving Me the glory as if everyone had received Communion.
My Heart feels moved to compassion in seeing the creature, unable himself to give Me anything that is worthy of Me, take ‘my things’ and make them his own, thereby imitating what I did. And he gives them to Me in order to please Me. And I, in my pleasure, go about repeating: “Well done, my son! You have done just what I had done!”
Then, He added: “Acts in my Will are the simplest acts, and this is so because simple acts are communicable to all. The Light of the Sun, because it is simple, is Light to every eye; yet, the Sun is one. One sole act, in my Will, diffuses like an extremely simple Light into every heart, into every deed, into everything, yet the act is one.
My own Being, since It is very simple, is one sole Act, but an Act which contains everything. I give life to all, but without force, without fatigue, [just as] I bestow the act of operating upon everyone.
Wherefore, the soul in my Will is simplified and conjointly multiplied with Me within everyone, therefore doing good to everyone. Oh, if everyone understood the immense value of acts performed in my Will, even those deemed insignificant and minimal, no acts would escape!”
Volume 11 – October 2, 1916
Holy Communion, When Received as Jesus Received It, Makes Up for the Lack of Love on the Part of All Creatures
This morning, I received Communion as Jesus had taught me to, that is, while being united with His Humanity, Divinity, and most Holy Will. Then, Jesus showed Himself, and whereupon seeing Him, I kissed Him and squeezed Him to my heart, and He restored to me a kiss and a hug and said to me:
“My daughter, how happy I am that You have come to receive Me united with my Humanity, Divinity, and Will! You renewed the happiness I felt whereupon administering Communion to Myself. And while you kissed Me and hugged Me, having within yourself my entire self, you contained all creatures. Hence, I felt the kiss of all, the embrace of everyone, for this was your will, which was patterned after my Will when I administered Communion to Myself, wherein I made up to the Father for all the love of creatures, despite the many who do not love Him. The Father made up for their love within Me, and I make up for the love of all creatures within you. Thus, having discovered the one who loves Me, who makes reparation, etc., in my Will and in the name of all, for in my Will there is nothing the soul cannot give Me, I am, therefore, more inclined to loving the creatures, despite the fact that they offend Me, and I go about inventing Loving strategies encompassing the most hardened hearts, so as to convert them. Only out of love for these souls, who do everything in my Will, do I feel, as it were, chained up, enraptured; wherefore, I grant them the prodigies of the greatest conversions.”
Volume 11 – December 2, 1916
The Soul That Works in the Divine Will Does to Jesus That Which the Divine Will Does, Therefore Renewing the Fruits of His Life, His Works, and His Pains.
Having received Communion, I was completely uniting myself to Jesus and pouring myself out in his Will, when I said to Him: “I neither know how to do nor say anything; whence, I feel a great need to do what You do and repeat your very own words. In your Will, I discover gifts, and discover, as being in act, those acts which You performed in receiving Yourself in the Sacrament; whence, I make them my own and repeat them for You.”
And therefore, I sought to penetrate into all that Jesus did when receiving Himself in the Sacrament. And as I acted thus, He said to me:
“My daughter, whoever does my Will, and makes certain that whatever he does, he does in my Will, compels Me to do what he does together with him. Wherefore, should he receive Communion in my Will, I thus repeat the acts which I did whilst administering Communion to Myself, therefore renewing the complete fruits of my Sacramental Life; should he pray in my Will, I thus pray with him, therefore renewing the fruits of my prayers; should he suffer, or work, or speak in my Will, I thus suffer, work, and speak together with him, whence renewing the fruits of my pains, works, and words, and so forth with regard to all else.”
Volume 11 Volume 11 – February 24, 1917
The Most Holy Eucharist Contains the Entire Life, Prayers, Pains, Works, and Love of Jesus. If the Soul Does That Which Jesus Did When Receiving Himself, Then Jesus’ Glory and Complete Fruits Are Renewed.
Having received Communion, I kept my sweet Jesus pressed tightly to my heart and said: “My Life, I desire so much to do what You did when receiving Yourself in the Sacrament, so that You might discover in me your own sentiments, your own prayers, and your own reparations.”
And my ever loving Jesus said to me: “My daughter, in this short circumference of the Host, I enclose everything; and for this reason, I wanted to receive Myself, in order to offer up complete acts which would glorify the Father worthily. Whence, through my offering of complete fruits of my Sacramental Life for creatures, I allowed the creature to receive a God, lest the Eucharist be incomplete, either with respect to the Father’s glory or for the creature’s good. Wherefore, in every Host are discovered my prayers, my thanksgivings, and all else that was needed in order to glorify the Father and supply for that which the creature ought to have given Me. Whence, even if there are no creatures [to receive Me], I still continue my work in every Host, [and feel] as if I were receiving Myself again in each soul.
Therefore, the soul must transform herself into Me and become one likeness with Me, thus making my Life her own, my prayers her own, my groanings of Love her own, my pains her own, my fiery heartbeats her own, which I would like to burn, but cannot, since I find no one willing to let herself be consumed by my flames.
And in this Host, I once again am born, live, and die; I am consumed, yet I find no one willing to consume herself for Me. Whereas, if the soul repeats what I had done, she thus makes Me feel the repetition of that which I had done, as if I had received Myself once again; and wherein, I would then discover complete glory, Divine pleasures, outlets of Love to match my Love, and I accord to the soul the grace of consuming herself with my own consummation.”
Volume 12 – July 4, 1917
The pains that one suffers and the good that one does are bonds of union with Jesus. One who does the Divine Will lives, with Jesus, His Eucharistic Life in the Tabernacles.
…Another day I was thinking to myself about the good that other souls receive by being in front of the Most Blessed Sacrament, while I, poor one, was deprived of It. And blessed Jesus told me:
“My daughter, one who does my Will is with Me in the Tabernacle, and shares in my pains, in the coldness, in the irreverences, and in all that the very souls who are in my Sacramental Presence do. One who does my Will must excel in everything; and the place of honor is always reserved for her. Therefore, who receives more good: one who is before Me, or one who is with Me? I do not tolerate even one step of distance, or division of pains or of joys between Me and one who does my Will. I may keep her on the cross – but always with Me.
This is why I want you always in my Will: to give you the first place inside my Sacramental Heart. I want to feel your heart palpitating in Mine, with my own love and pain. I want to feel your will in Mine, which, multiplying itself in everyone, may give Me the reparations of all, and the love of all in one single act. And I want to feel my Volition in yours, which, making your poor humanity my own, may raise it before the Majesty of the Father as my continuous victim.”
Volume 12 – October 20, 1917
How the soul can make of herself a Host for Jesus.
Having received my Jesus, I was thinking about how I could give back love for love. It was impossible for me to be able to shrink and become smaller, like Jesus does in the Host for love of me. This is not in my power, as it is in the power of Jesus. And my beloved Jesus told my:
“My daughter, if you cannot contract all of yourself within the brief circle of a Host for love of Me, you can very well contract all yourself within my Will, to be able to make of yourself the Host in my Will. For every act you will do in my Will, you will make a Host for Me; and I will feed Myself from you, as you do from Me. What forms the Host? My own Life in it. And what is my Will? Isn’t It my whole Life? Therefore, you too can become Host for love of Me: the more acts you will do in my Will, the more Hosts you will form to give back to Me love for love.”
Volume 12 – October 23, 1917
The first act which Jesus did as He received Himself in instituting the Eucharist.
This morning, after I received blessed Jesus, I was saying to Him: ‘My life, Jesus, tell me: what was the first act that You did when You received Yourself sacramentally?’ And Jesus:
“My daughter, the first act I did was to multiply my Life into many Lives, for as many creatures as can exist in the world, so that everyone might have one Life of Mine only for herself; a Life which continuously prays, thanks, satisfies, loves only for her. In the same way, I multiplied my pains for each soul, as if I were suffering only for her, and not for others. In that supreme moment of receiving Myself, I gave Myself to all, to suffer my Passion in every heart, to be able to conquer their hearts through pains and love. In giving all my divinity, I took dominion over all. But – alas, my Love remains disappointed by many; and I anxiously await loving hearts which, receiving Me, may multiply themselves in everyone, desiring and wanting all that I want, so that I may at least take from them what the others do not give Me, and receive the contentment of having them as conformed to my desire and to my Will. Therefore, my daughter, when you receive Me, do the same I did, and I will receive the joy that at least the two of us want the same thing.”
Volume 12 – March 27, 1918
In the Divine Will the soul lives with Jesus His whole Eucharistic Life.
I was lamenting with Jesus for I couldn’t even listen to Holy Mass; and Jesus told me:
“My daughter, am I not the One who forms the Sacrifice? Now, as I transform Myself in each Sacrifice, the soul who lives with Me and in my Will remains sacrificed together with Me – not in one Mass, but in all the Masses. And as she lives in my Volition, she remains consecrated with Me in all the Hosts.
Never leave my Will, and I will let you reach any place you want. Even more, there will be such an electricity of communication between you and Me, that you will not do one act without Me, and I will not do any act without you. Therefore, when you lack something, enter into my Will, and you will find, all ready, whatever you want: as many Masses as you want, as many Communions, as much love as you want. Nothing is missing in my Will. And not only this – but you will find things in a divine and infinite way.”
Volume 12 – June 20, 1918
Jesus does the office of Priest with those who do His Will & live in It.
Continuing in my usual state, my sweet Jesus made Himself seen around me, full of attentions. He seemed to be watching me in everything. As He was doing this, a rope came out from His Heart, coming toward my heart, and if I was attentive, the rope remained fixed in my heart; and Jesus moved this rope, amusing Himself. Then, my beloved Jesus told me:
“My daughter, I am all attention for souls. If they reciprocate Me, paying as much attention to Me, the ropes of my Love remain fixed in their heart, while I multiply my attentions and amuse Myself; otherwise, the ropes remain loose, and my Love rejected and saddened.”
Then He added: “My Love does not find obstruction in the one who does my Will and lives in It. I love her and have for her so much predilection that I Myself take care of all that is needed for her: help, direction, unforeseen aid and unexpected graces. Even more, I am jealous if others do something – I want to do everything by Myself for her. I reach so much jealousy of love that, if I give to Priests the authority to consecrate Me in the Sacramental Hosts so that I may be given to souls, I reserve to Myself the privilege to consecrate these souls, as they keep repeating their acts in my Will, as they resign themselves, and as they make the human will leave, in order to let the Divine Will enter. What the Priest does with the Host, I do with them – and not only once: every time she repeats her acts in my Will, she calls Me as a powerful magnet, and I consecrate her like a privileged Host, repeating to her the words of the Consecration.
I do this with justice, because the soul who does my Will sacrifices herself more than those souls who receive Communion, but do not do my Will. Those empty themselves to take on Me; they give Me full dominion and, if needed, they are ready to suffer any pain in order to do my Will. So, I can’t wait – my Love cannot contain Itself from communicating Me to them until when it might be convenient to the Priest to give them the Sacramental Host. Therefore, I do everything by Myself. Oh, how many times I communicate Myself before the Priest feels comfortable to communicate them himself! If this were not the case, my Love would remain hampered and bound in the Sacraments. No, no, I am free. I have the Sacraments inside my Heart – I am the Owner, and I can exercise them whenever I want.”
While He was saying this, He seemed to be wandering everywhere, to see if there were souls who did His Will, in order to consecrate them. How beautiful it was to see the adorable Jesus going round as if in a hurry, doing the office of Priest, and to hear Him repeat the words of the Consecration over those souls who do His Will and live in It. Oh, blessed are those souls who, doing His Will, receive the Consecration of Jesus!
Volume 12 – February 6, 1919
How the soul can form many consecrated Hosts to give Communion to Jesus.
I was fusing all myself in my sweet Jesus, doing as much as I could in order to enter the Divine Volition, to find the chain of my eternal love, of reparations and of my continuous cry for souls through which my always adorable Jesus longed for me from eternity. I wanted to join my little love in time together with that Love with which Jesus longed for me eternally, to be able to give Him infinite love, infinite reparation, taking the place of everything – just as Jesus had taught me. As I was doing this, my sweet Jesus came in a hurry and told me:
“My daughter, I am very hungry.” And He seemed to be taking many tiny little white balls from inside my mouth, eating them. Then, as if He wanted to satisfy His hunger completely, He entered into my heart, grabbing many crumbs, big and little, with both hands, and then eating them hurriedly.
Afterwards, as if He was full, He leaned on my bed and told me: “My daughter, as the soul continues to enclose my Volition and to love Me, she also encloses Me in my Volition; and, loving Me, she forms around Me the accidents in which to imprison Me, forming a Host for Me. So, if she suffers, if she repairs, etc., and encloses my Volition, she forms many Hosts to Communicate Me, and to feed Me in a divine manner, worthy of Me. As soon as I see these Hosts being formed within the soul, I go and grab them in order to feed Myself, to satisfy my insatiable hunger – that the creature render Me love for love. Therefore, you can say to Me: ‘You have Communicated me – I too have Communicated You.”
And I: ‘Jesus, my Hosts are your own things, while Yours are still yours; so I always remain below You.’ And Jesus: “For one who really loves Me, I cannot consider this, nor do I want to. Further, in my Hosts I give you Jesus, and in yours you give all Jesus as well. Do you want to see it?” And I: ‘Yes.’
He stretched His hand into my heart, took a tiny little white ball, broke it, and another Jesus came out from within it. And He: “Did you see it? How happy I am when the creature arrives at being able to communicate Myself! Therefore, make Me many Hosts, and I will come to feed Myself in you. You will renew for Me the contentment, the glory and the love of when I communicated Myself in instituting my Sacramental presence.”
Volume 12 – February 27, 1919 For Jesus the acts done in His Will are air, light, Tabernacles and Hosts, in which Jesus feels free and makes the soul free.
Continuing in my usual state, as Jesus comes, He almost always calls me into His Will to repair or substitute the acts of the creatures in a divine manner. Now, in coming, He told me:
“My daughter, what a stink emanates from the earth! I can find no place for Myself; and because of that stink, I am forced to run away from the earth. However, you can give Me some sweet-smelling air, suitable for Me. Do you know how? By doing what you do in my Will. As you do your acts, you will form for Me a divine air; and I will come to breathe it, finding a place for Me on earth. And since my Will circulates everywhere, in the same way, I will feel everywhere the air which you will form for Me, blowing away the bad air which the earth sends Me.”
After a little while, He came back and added: “My daughter, how much darkness! It is such that the earth seems to be covered with a black mantle, to the extent that the creatures can no longer see. Either they have remained blind, or they have no light to be able to see. Not only do I want divine air for Me, but also light. Therefore, may your acts be continuous in my Will, so that you may not only form air for your Jesus, but also light. You will be my reflector, the reflection of my Love and of my very Light. Even more, I tell you that as you do your acts in my Volition, not only will you raise Tabernacles, but as you keep forming your thoughts, desires, words, reparations and acts of love, many Hosts will be unleashed from you, because they are consecrated by my Will.
Oh, what a free outpouring my Love will have! I will have free field in everything – no more obstruction. I will have as many Tabernacles as I want. The Hosts will be innumerable; we will take communion in every instant, and I too will shout: ‘Freedom! Freedom! Come all into my Will, and you will enjoy true freedom!’ Outside of my Will, how many obstructions does the soul not find! But in my Will she is free. I leave her free to love Me as she wants; even more, I tell her: ‘Lay down your human remains – take what is divine.’ I am not mean and jealous with my goods; I want you to take everything. Love Me immensely – take, take all my Love; make my Power your own; make my Beauty your own. The more you take, the happier your Jesus will be. The earth forms few Tabernacles for Me; the Hosts are almost numbered. And then, the sacrileges, the irreverences that they do to Me – oh, how offended and hampered my Love is! But in my Will – no obstruction; not a shadow of offense. The creature gives Me love, divine reparations and complete correspondence; together with Me, she substitutes for all the evils of the human family. Be attentive, and do not move from the point at which I call you and want you.”
Volume 12 – December 26, 1919
The Divine Will is Sacrament, and surpasses all the Sacraments together. It is intangible and fully effective in Itself.
I was thinking to myself: ‘How can it be that doing the Will of God surpasses even the Sacraments?’ And Jesus, moving in my interior, told me:
“My daughter, why Sacraments are called Sacraments? Because they are sacred – they have the value and the power to confer Grace and Sanctity. However, these Sacraments operate according to the dispositions of the creatures; so much so, that sometimes they remain even fruitless, unable to confer the good which they contain. Now, my Will is Sacred and Holy, and It contains altogether the virtue of all the Sacraments. Not only this. It doesn’t have to work to dispose the soul to receive the goods which my Will contains. In fact, as soon as the soul has disposed herself to do my Will, she already disposed herself by herself, and my Will, finding everything prepared and disposed, even at the cost of any sacrifice, communicates Itself to the soul without delay, pouring the goods It contains, and forming the heroes – the martyrs of the Divine Volition, the most unheard-of portents… Moreover, what do the Sacraments do if not unite the soul with God? And what doing my Will is? Isn’t It perhaps to unite the will of the creature with her Creator? It is to dissolve oneself in the Eternal Volition – the nothingness ascending to the All, and the All descending into the nothingness. It is the most noble, the purest, the most beautiful, the most heroic act which creature can do.
Ah, yes, I confirm it to you, I repeat it: my Will is Sacrament, and It surpasses all the Sacraments together – but in a more admirable way; without mediation from anyone; with nothing material. The Sacrament of my Will is formed between my Will and the will of the soul; the two wills are tied together and form the Sacrament. My Will is Life, and the soul already disposed to receive Life is holy, and receives Sanctity; she is strong, and receives fortitude; and so forth with all the rest.
On the other hand, how much my other Sacraments have to work to dispose the souls – if they manage at all! How many times these channels which I left to my Church remain beaten up, despised, oppressed. Some even use them to praise themselves, turning them against Me to offend Me… Ah, if you knew the enormous sacrileges committed in the Sacrament of Confession, and the horrendous abuses of the Sacrament of the Eucharist, you would cry with Me for the great pain! Ah, yes, only the Sacrament of my Will can sing glory an victory. It is full in Its effects, and untouchable by creature’s offense. In fact, in order to enter my Will, the creature must lay down her will, her passions; only then does my Will lower to her, investing her, identifying her with Itself, making portents out of her.
Therefore, when I speak about my Will united to that of the creature I become festive; I never stop; my joy is full, and no bitterness enters between Me and the soul. But for the other Sacraments, my Heart swims in the pain. Man turned them into sources of bitterness, while I gave them as sources of graces.”
Volume 12 – January 1, 1920 The Divine Will surrounds and perfectly encloses one who lives in It, forming a garment of light for her which is made of her own acts. Each of these acts encloses Jesus, Who is multiplied as many times – even more than in the Sacramental Hosts.
Continuing in my usual state, my always adorable Jesus seemed to come out from my interior; and as I looked at Him, I saw Him all wet with tears – even His garments, His Most Holy hands were beaded with tears… What torment! I was shaken, and Jesus told me: “My daughter, how wrecked will the world be! The chastisements will flow more painfully than before, to the extent that I do nothing but cry over its sad lot!”
Then He added: “My daughter, my Will is wheel, and whoever enters into It remains entrapped within, to the extent of not being able to find a way out; and everything she does remains fixed on the eternal point, and pours into the wheel of Eternity. But do you know what are the garments of the soul who lives in my Will? They are not of gold, but of most pure Light. This garment of Light will serve as mirror to show all of Heaven how many acts she has done in my Will – because, in every act she has done in my Will, she enclosed Me completely. This garment will be adorned with many mirrors, and in each mirror will all of Myself appear. Therefore, from whatever side they will look at her – from behind, from the front, from the right, from the left – they will see Me, multiplied for as many acts as she did in my Volition. I could not give her a more beautiful garment: it will be the exclusive distinction of the souls who live in my Will.”
I remained a little confused in hearing this, and He added: “How is it – do you doubt? Doesn’t the same happen in the Sacramental Hosts? If there are one thousand Hosts, I am there one thousand times, and I communicate my whole self to a thousand; if there are one hundred Hosts, there are one hundred Jesuses, and I can give Myself only to a hundred. In the same way, the soul encloses Me within each act done in my Will, and I remain sealed inside the will of the soul. Therefore, these acts done in my Will are eternal Communions, the species not subject to being consumed as in the Sacramental Hosts. As those species are consumed, my Sacramental Life ends; on the other hand, in the Hosts of my Will there is no flour, or any other matter – the food, the substance of these Hosts of my Will, is my eternal Will Itself, united with the will of the soul, which is eternal like Me; and therefore these two wills are not subject to being consumed. So, what is the wonder, if my entire Person will be seen as multiplied for as many acts as she has done in my Will? More so, since I remained sealed in her and she, as many times, in Me. Therefore, the soul too will remain multiplied in Me for as many acts as she has done in my Will. These are the prodigies of my Will – and this is enough to cast any doubt away from you.”
Volume 12 – May 28, 1920
The acts done in the Divine Will acquire an eternal dimension, and have primacy over all. The soul finds herself consecrated with Jesus in all the hosts of all times, in order to give Him life for life.
I was offering myself in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass together with Jesus, so that I too might receive His same consecration. Moving in my interior, He told me:
“My daughter, enter into my Will, so that you may find yourself in all of the hosts, not only of the present, but of the future; in this way you will receive, together with Me, as many consecrations as I receive. I place one Life of Mine in each Host, and I want another one in exchange. But how many do not give it to Me! Others receive Me; I give Myself to them, but they do not give themselves to Me, and my Love remains suffering, hampered, suffocated, unrequited. Therefore, come into my Will to receive all the consecrations which I receive, so I will find your life, in exchange, within every Host – not only for as long as you remain on earth, but also when you are in Heaven. In fact, since you have been consecrated in advance while being in my Will on earth, just as I will receive consecrations until the end, you too will receive them, and I will find the exchange of your life unto the last day.”…
Volume 13 – October 29, 1921
Meaning and effects of the three hours of imprisonment of Jesus.
…“But the prison and the darkness have yet another meaning: the long sojourn of my imprisonment in Tabernacles and the solitude in which I am left, often with no one to speak to or to give a glance of love. Other times, in the Sacred HOST I feel the touch of unworthy tongues, the stench of festering and corrupt hands. There is no one who touches Me with pure hands and perfumes Me with his love. How many times HUMAN ingratitude leaves Me in the dark without even the meager light of a lamp! Thus my imprisonment continues, and it will continue still longer. Since we are both prisoners—you, a prisoner in your bed, all alone for the sake of my Love; Myself, a prisoner for you—[I want] to bind all creatures with my Love, using the chains that keep Me bound. We will keep each other company, there fore, and you will help Me lay out the chains that will be used to bind all hearts to my Love.”
Volume 13 – November 26, 1921
The centralization of the purpose of Creation, of Redemption and of Glorification. The Divine Will as life of the creature surpasses the miracle of the Eucharist.
…”I have been watching over each one of your ACTS, and immediately I made my Volition flow, as to a place of honor. I Myself knew how many graces were necessary, having to work the greatest miracle that exists in the world, which is that of living continuously in my Volition: the soul must assimilate everything of God in its act, so as to give it back again intact, just as the soul assimilated it, and then to assimilate it again. Thus, it even surpasses the miracle of the EUCHARIST: the accidents [of bread and wine] possess neither reason nor will nor desires that could put themselves in opposition to my Sacramental Life. The HOST does nothing itself; the work is all my own: if I want it, then I do it. Instead, to bring about the miracle of living in my Volition, I must bend a HUMAN will and reason, a desire, and a love that is purely free: how many things are necessary? And so, there are many souls who go to communion and who take part in the miracle of the EUCHARIST; but, because they would have to sacrifice themselves more in order to bring about the miracle of my Will having life within them, there are very few who are so disposed.”
Volume 14 – March 24, 1922
Every act of the creature done in the Divine Will is a Holy Mass, in which the Life and real presence of Jesus is multiplied.
Continuing in my usual state, my always adorable Jesus came and told me:
“My daughter, as the soul emits her acts in my Volition, she multiplies my Life. Therefore, if she does ten acts in my Will, she multiplies Me ten times; if she does twenty, a hundred, a thousand and more acts, as many times do I remain multiplied. It happens as in the Sacramental Consecration: as many Hosts as they place, so many times I remain multiplied. The difference which exists is that in the Sacramental Consecration I need the Hosts in order to multiply Myself and the Priest who consecrates Me; while in my Will, in order to be multiplied, I need the acts of the creature in which my Will consecrates Me and encloses Me more than in a living Host – not a dead one, like those Hosts before my consecration; so I remain consecrated in each one of her acts done in my Will. Therefore, my Love has Its complete outpouring with the souls who do my Will and live in my Volition. These are the ones who always compensate, not only for all the acts which creatures owe Me, but for my very Sacramental Life.
How many times my Sacramental Life remains obstructed in the few Hosts in which I remain consecrated, because few are the communicants! Other times there are no Priests to consecrate Me; and not only is my Sacramental Life not multiplied as much as I would like, but It remains without existence. Oh, how my Love suffers! I would like to multiply my Life every day into as many Hosts for as many existing creatures, and give Myself to them. But I wait in vain. My Will remains without effect. However, all that I have decided will be fulfilled. So I take another way, and I multiply Myself in every living act of creature done in my Volition, in order to be compensated for the multiplication of my Sacramental Life. Ah, yes, only the souls who live in my Volition will compensate for all the Communions that creatures don’t do; for all the Consecrations that Priests don’t do. I will find everything in them, even the multiplication of my Sacramental Life.
Therefore, I repeat to you – your mission is great. I could not choose you for a higher, more noble, sublime and divine mission. There is nothing that I will not centralize in you – even the multiplication of my own Life. I will make new prodigies of Grace, never done before. So, I beg you, be attentive; be faithful to Me. Let my Will always have Life in you; and I will find in you, in my own Volition, the Work of Creation as fully completed, with my full rights; and everything I want.”

By living in the Divine Will, Cross and Sanctity become similar to those of Jesus
After this I continued with the rest of the Hours of the PASSION and was contemplating the Eucharistic Supper when my sweet Jesus moved within me and touched me with the tip of a finger. Then He called me loudly from within, so loudly that I heard Him with my ears and said to myself:
“What might Jesus want, that He calls so?”
Speaking to me, He said:
“I could not catch your attention. I had to call out to you to make you listen.”
Listen my daughter, when I instituted the Eucharistic Supper I saw and called all to come to Me, all generations, from the first to the last man, so that I could give to all my Sacramental Life, and not just once but just as often as man needs corporal nourishment. I desired to constitute Myself as the nourishment of their souls. But I felt very abused when I realized that this, my Sacramental Life, was encompassed by indifference, by carelessness, and even by ruthless death. I felt all the crudeness of the death of my Sacramental Life, and so painfully, so repeatedly. But then I took a better look and, making use of the Power of my Will, I called around Me the souls that were to live in my Will, and oh, how happy I felt! I felt as if surrounded by these souls which the Power of my Will had absorbed and the center of whose life was my Volition. I saw in them my own immensity; within them I found myself protected from all creatures, and I entrusted to them my Sacramental Life. I deposited my Sacramental Life in them not only for them to cherish, but also for them to reciprocate Me with a life of their own for each consecrated HOST. This is natural for them to do because my Sacramental Life takes its life from my Eternal Will, which these souls have as the center of their lives. Therefore, when my Sacramental Life is formed within them, the same Will that ACTS within Me, ACTS also within them. As I feel their lives within my Sacramental Life their lives are multiplied in each HOST and I feel that they give Me in reciprocity Life for Life.
Oh, how I exulted upon seeing you as the first soul whom I called in a special way to live in my Will! I deposited in you the first of all my Sacramental Lives, and I entrusted you to the Power and Immensity of my Supreme Will so that they would render you capable of receiving this deposit. From that moment you were present to me and I made you the depository of my sacramental Life and, in you, all those who would live in my Will. I gave you primacy over all, and justly so, because my Will is above all, even above the Apostles and the priests. It is true they consecrate Me, but their lives do not remain conjoined with mine. What’s more, they abandon Me, they forget Me, and take no care of my Presence. On the other hand, those souls who live in my Will are lives within my very Life, and, therefore, inseparable from Me. That is why I love you so; it is my own Will in you that I love.”

Sorrows of the Sacramental Life of Jesus. Graces with which He anticipated us in order to receive Him.
“My daughter, come into my arms, even into my Heart. I am concealed in the Eucharist so as not to arouse fear. In this sacrament, I have descended into the deepest abyss of humiliations so as to elevate the creature to Me: identifying it with Me so much that it becomes as one with Me, allowing my Sacramental Blood to flow in its veins so that I might become the life of each of its heartbeats, of its thoughts and of its entire being. My love consumes Me and wants to consume the creature in my flames, to give it rebirth as another Me. So, I wanted to hide Myself in the Eucharist and, thus hidden, to enter into the creature and bring about this transformation. For this transformation to succeed, however, correct dispositions on the creature’s part are necessary. My Love, giving into excess as when it instituted the Eucharistic sacrament, provided empty places within my DIVINITY, graces, gifts, favors and light for the good of man, to render him worthy of receiving Me. I might say that it set forth so much good as to surpass even the gifts of creation. First, I wanted to give man the graces needed to receive Me, and then to give Myself in order to give him the true fruit of my Sacramental Life. Before souls can receive these gifts, however, there is need for emptying of self, hatred of sin, and a desire for receiving Me. These gifts do not descend into rottenesse or into mud. Without my gifts, souls do not have the right disposition to receive Me, and, descending into them, I do not find the empty place where to communicate my Life. It is as if I am dead for them, and they for Me. I burn, and they do not sense my flames; I am light, and they remain blind. Alas, how many sorrows in my Sacramental Life! Many, lacking correct dispositions, experience nothing of benefit in receiving Me and end up nauseating Me. If they continue to receive Me like that, it will result in a continuation of Calvary for Me and their eternal damnation. If it is not love that prompts them to receive Me, it is yet one more insult they heap upon Me and one more sin upon their souls. So, pray and make reparation for the many abuses and sacrileges that are committed in this sacrament.”
Volume 15 – May 2, 1923
How Jesus asked for three kinds of bread in saying: “Give us this day our daily bread.”
…“When my ‘Fiat voluntas tua’ has its fulfillment ‘on earth, as It is in Heaven,’ then the second part of the Pater Noster will be fulfilled, that is, ‘Give us today our daily bread.’
“I always said, ‘Our Father, on behalf of everyone, I beseech You for three kinds of daily bread. The first is the bread of your Will; indeed, It is more than bread, for ordinary bread is necessary only two or three times a day. This bread, instead, is necessary at every moment and in every circumstance. It must be not merely bread, but as balsamic which brings life, the circulation of DIVINE Life in the creature. Father, without this Bread of your Will, I will never be able to receive all the fruits of my Sacramental Life, which is the second kind of bread I ask You for every day. Oh, what a bad state my SacramentalLife is in because, rather than nourishing them, the Bread of your Will finds the Sacramental Bread corrupted by the HUMAN will! Oh, it disgusts Me! Oh, how I abhor it! Even though I go to them, I cannot give them fruits, blessings or holiness because I do not find in them the bread of our Will. Even if I give them something, it is only a small portion, according to their dispositions—not all the graces that are within Me. My sacramental life waits patiently for man to take the bread of our Supreme Will, so as to give him all the blessings of my sacramental life. So, the sacrament of the EUCHARIST and all the sacraments left to my Church and instituted by Me will bear all the fruit they contain and will be brought to maturity only when our Bread, the Will of God, will be done ‘on earth as It is in Heaven.’
“After that I asked for the third bread, which is material bread. How could I say, ‘Give us this day our bread,’ in view of the fact that man, who should have done our Will, took as his own what was Ours? The Father would have given no more of the Bread of his Will, of the bread of my Sacramental Life or of the daily bread of the natural life to illegitimate sons, to evil and usurping men, but only to his legitimate sons, to good men who keep the Father’s blessings in common. Therefore, I said ‘Give us our bread.’ Then they will eat the blessed bread, and everything will smile upon them. Heaven and earth will bear the imprint of the harmony of their Creator.
“Afterwards, I added, ‘Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.’ Then, charity will also be perfect. Forgiveness will have the character of heroism, as when I was upon the cross. This will occur when man eats the bread of my Will as he has eaten the bread of my HUMANITY. Then, the VIRTUESs will be absorbed into my Will, receiving the character of true heroism and of DIVINE VIRTUES. They will be like many little streams flowing from the great sea of my Will.
“I added, ‘And lead us not into temptation’; how could God ever lead man into temptation? Because man is always man, in possession of free will, I never take away the rights that I gave him in creating him. And man, fearful of himself, cries out in silence, and without expressing himself in words, asks: ‘Give us the Bread of your Will, so that we can resist all temptations; and by VIRTUES of this Bread, free us from every evil. Amen.’
“You see, therefore, all of man’s blessings will find their renewal, their connection with ‘Let Us make man in our own image and likeness,’ the validity of each one of his ACTS, the restitution of lost privileges, the assurance that he will regain his lost happiness, both earthly and heavenly.
“It is so necessary that my Will be done ‘on earth as It is in Heaven,’ that I was interested in nothing else nor did I teach any other prayer except the Pater Noster. The Church, faithful executor and repository of my teachings, prays it always. The learned and the ignorant, the great and the small, priests and laymen, kings and subjects: everyone must pray that my ‘Will be done on earth as It is in Heaven.’
“So, don’t you want my Will to descend upon the earth? Just as the Redemption had its beginning in a virgin, rather than my becoming incarnate in all men so as to redeem them (even though whoever wants to can enter into the good of Redemption and receive Me personally in the Eucharist), so now my Will must have its beginning, its possession, growth and development in a virgin creature. Then, whoever wants to and is properly disposed will enter into the blessings that follow from living in my Will.
“If I had not been conceived in my beloved Mother, the Redemption would never have happened. Likewise, if I do not accomplish the wonder of making a soul live in my Supreme Will, then the ‘Fiat voluntas tua,’ ‘on earth as It is in Heaven,’ will never take place among mankind.”
Volume 15 – June 18, 1923
Prodigies and wonders of Our Lord in instituting the Most Holy Sacrament, and especially in communicating Himself
“I want you to know the reason that I wanted to receive Myself in the institution of the Blessed Sacrament. This was a great miracle that is incomprehensible to the HUMAN mind. For the creature to receive both man and God, to enclose the Infinite in a finite being, and to give this Infinite Being the honor and dignity that is its due, as well as a worthy dwelling place: this mystery is so abstruse and incomprehensible that even the apostles, while they easily believed in the incarnation and other mysteries, became uneasy and tended to disbelief. Their assent came only through my repeated exhortations. So, what could I do? In instituting this Sacrament I had to think about everything. Though the creature had to receive Me, the honor, dignity and worthy dwelling place due to the DIVINITY must not be wanting.
“So, my daughter, when I instituted the Blessed Sacrament, my Eternal Will, in union with my HUMAN Will, made present to Me all the HOSTs that will receive sacramental consecration until the end of time. One by one, I looked at and consumed each of them. I saw my sacramental Life in each HOST, vibrant and desiring to give itself to creatures. My HUMANITY, in name of the entire HUMAN family, assumed the obligation for everyone and provided a dwelling place in itself for each HOST. My DIVINITY, which was inseparable from Me, surrounded each Sacramental HOST with honors, praises and DIVINE benedictions, so that my Majesty might be received with suitable dignity. Every Sacramental HOST was entrusted to Me and contains the dwelling place of my HUMANITY and the cortege of honors of my DIVINITY. Otherwise, how could I have descended into the creature? It was only for this—by receiving Myself I rescued my dignity, my honors, and a dwelling place worthy of my person—that I tolerated the sacrileges, the indifference, the irreverence and the ingratitude of creatures. If I had not received Myself, I would not have been able to descend into creatures. They would have lacked the way and the means to receive Me.
“That is my way of doing things. In all of my works, I do each of them Myself once, thereby giving life to all the other times they are repeated. All these repetitions are united to the first Act as though they were one act alone. So, the power, the immensity and the all-seeingness of my Will made Me embrace all times. It made present to Me all communicants and all Sacramental HOSTs, and I received Myself as many times in order to communicate Myself into each creature. Who could have thought of such an excess of love? Before I could descend into the hearts of creatures, I had to receive Myself in order to rescue my DIVINE rights and to be able to give them not only Myself, but the very same ACTS that I performed in receiving Myself, thus giving them the proper dispositions and almost the right to receive Me.”
I was astonished, almost to the point of doubt. Jesus added:
“Why do you doubt? Isn’t this the work of God? Isn’t this act, though one act alone, responsible for all the others? Wasn’t it the same with my Incarnation, my Life and my PASSION? I was incarnated only once, lived only one Life and suffered only one PASSION; yet, my Incarnation, Life and PASSION are for everyone together and for each in particular, as if for each creature alone. They are still in act for each creature, as if at this moment I were being incarnated or suffering my PASSION. If that were not the case, I would act not as God but as a creature, who, not possessing a DIVINE Power, can neither go to everyone nor give itself to everyone.
“Now, my daughter, I want to tell you about another excess of my love. Whoever does my Will and lives in It comes to embrace the actions of my HUMANITY, because I am very desirous that the creature become like Me. Since its will and my Will are one, my Will finds it pleasing and, amusing Itself, deposits in the creature all the good that is within Me, even the sacramental HOSTs. My Will, Which is within the creature, surrounds it with DIVINE honors and dignity, and I entrust Myself to it, because my Will has made it actor, spectator and guardian of all my goods, of my works and of my very Life.”
Volume – October 16, 1923
So that the Divine Will may descend upon earth, the human will, emptied of all that is human, divinized and transformed into all that is God, must raise up to Heaven and live and communal Life with the Most Holy Trinity; it must take and give to all.
“My daughter, in order for my Will to descend upon the earth, it is necessary that your will rise into Heaven and to rise into Heaven and to live in the Celestial Fatherland, it is necessary to empty it of all that which is human, which is not holy, pure and upright. Nothing enters into Heaven and makes permanent life with Us if it has not been all divinized and transformed all into Us; nor can my Will descend upon the earth and develop its life as in its own center if It does not find the human will emptied of everything, in order to fill it with all the goods that my Volition contain… She will be none other than a most thin veil that I will make use of to cover myself and to live there within, almost as in a consecrated HOST, in which I form my life, I do all that good that I want, I pray, I suffer, I enjoy, and the HOST does not impose itself, It leaves Me free; its office is to loan itself to keep Me hidden, and in mute of silence assents to conserve my Sacramental Life. It is this point where we are: Your volition to enter into Heaven and mine to descend upon the earth; therefore, yours must no longer have life, it must not have reason to exist.
This happened in my Humanity that while I had a Human Will this was all intent to give life to the Divine Will. It never took the liberty of acting on its own, not even to breathe, but even took and gave its breath in the Divine Will; and, therefore, the Eternal Will remained in my Humanity as in Heaven, so on earth, It lived its terrestrial life there and my Human Will sacrificed all to the Divine, impetrated that at the opportune time It would descend upon the earth to live in the midst of creatures as It lives in Heaven. Do you not want to give your prime place on earth to my Will?”
Now while He said that, it seemed to me I found myself in Heaven and as from a single point I saw all the generations and I, prostrating myself before the Supreme Majesty, I took the mutual Love of the Divine Persons, their perfect Adorations, the Sanctity always one of their Will, and I offered it in the name of everyone as exchange of love, of adoration, and of submission and union that each creature ought to have with its Creator. I wanted to unite Heaven and earth, Creator and creature so that they would embrace one another and give the kiss of union of their wills.
And so my Jesus added: “This is your duty of living in the midst of Us and to make what is yours ours and to give it to Us for all your brothers thus We, drawn by that which is ours, can be bound with the human generations and give them again the supreme kiss of the union of their will with ours that We gave to man in the Creation.”
Volume 16 – November 5, 1923
In one who lives in the Divine Will Jesus does not form the mystical Life given to those who live in His Grace, but without having their acts identified in the Divine Volition; rather, He forms His real Life, like in the Most Holy Sacrament, and still more.
I felt oppressed because of the privation of my sweet Jesus, with the addition that my Confessor – because I didn’t have the trust to open up with him, and because I was bad – had denied me the absolution. So, having received Holy Communion, I abandoned myself in the arms of my most sweet Jesus, telling Him: ‘My love, help me – do not abandon me. You know in what state I find myself because of your privation; and still, instead of help, creatures add pains to pains. Without You, I have no one else with whom to cry for my hard destiny of having lost You. This should push You more not to leave me alone – to keep at least company with a poor abandoned one, who lives dying in her hard exile. Therefore, You, Who are the Highest Priest, give me the absolution. Tell me that you forgive the sins that are in my soul. Let me hear your most sweet voice, which gives me life and forgiveness.’
Now, while I was pouring out my pain with Jesus, He made Himself seen in my interior. The Sacramental veils formed like a mirror in which Jesus was… alive and real. And my sweet Jesus told me: “My daughter, this mirror is the accident of bread, which keeps Me imprisoned within them. I form my Life in the Host, but It does not give Me anything – not one affection, not a heartbeat, not the tiniest ‘I love you.’ It is as if dead for Me. I remain alone, without the shadow of anything in return. Therefore my Love is almost impatient to get out, to break this glass, descending into hearts, in order to find in them that return which the Host doesn’t know how to give Me, nor can it do so.
But do you know where I find my true return? In the soul who lives in my Will. As soon as I descend into her heart, I consume the accidents of the Host, because I know that more noble accidents, more dear to Me, are ready to imprison Me, in order to keep Me inside that heart, which will not only give Me life in itself – but life for life. I will no longer be alone, but with my most faithful company. We will be two hearts palpitating together; we will love united; our desires will be one. So, I remain in her, and I live my Life there – alive and real – just as I do in the Most Holy Sacrament. But do you know what these accidents are which I find in the soul who does my Will? These are her acts done in my Volition which – more than accidents – extend themselves around Me; they imprison Me, but inside a noble, Divine prison, not a dark one, because her acts done in my Will illuminate and warm, more than sun. Oh, how happy I feel to live my real Life in her. I feel as if I were inside my Celestial Royal Palace! Look at Me in your heart; how happy I am; how I delight and feel the purest joys!”
And I: ‘My beloved Jesus, isn’t this a new and special thing that you are telling me – that you live your real Life in one who lives in your Will? Isn’t this rather the mystical Life, which You live in the hearts that possess your Grace?’
And Jesus: “No, no, it is not a mystical Life, as it is for those who possess my Grace, but who do not live with their acts identified in my Volition, and therefore do not have sufficient material to form the accidents and imprison Me. It would be as if the Priest lacked the Host, and still wanted to pronounce the words of the Consecration. He could pronounce them, but he would say them to the empty space – my Sacramental Life would certainly not have existence. In the same way, I find Myself in the hearts which might possess my Grace, but do not live completely in my Will. I am in them by Grace, but not in reality.”
And I: ‘My love, but how is it possible that You can really live in the soul who lives in your Will?’ And Jesus: “My daughter, don’t I perhaps live in the Sacramental Host, alive and real – in Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity? And why do I live in the Host in Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity? Because there is not a will which is opposed to Mine. If I found in the Host a Will opposed to Mine, I would form neither a real nor a perennial Life in it. This is also the reason for which the Sacramental accidents are consumed when creatures receive Me: I do not find a human will united with Mine, disposed to give itself in order to acquire my Will; rather, I find a will which wants to act, and do it by itself. So I make my little visit, and I leave.
On the other hand, for one who lives in my Will, my Volition and hers are one. And if I do this in the Host, how much more can I do it in her; more so, since I find a heartbeat, an affection, my reward and interest – all that I do not find in the Host. My real Life is necessary to the soul who lives in my Will; otherwise how could she live in my Volition?
Ah, you don’t want to understand that the Sanctity of living in my Will is a Sanctity completely different from the other Sanctities. Except for the crosses, the mortifications, the necessary acts of life which, done in my Will, embellish her even more, it is nothing other than the life of the Blessed in Heaven who, living in my Will, by virtue of It, possess Me within each one of them, as if I were only for each one – alive and real – and not mystically, but really dwelling within them. And just as this could not be called “Life of Heaven” if they did not have Me within them as their own Life; and their happiness would not be perfect and complete, if even a tiny particle of my Life were missing in them; in the same way, my Will would be neither full nor perfect in one who lives in my Volition, if my real Life which emits this Will, were missing.
It is true that these are all prodigies of my Love. In fact, this is the prodigy of prodigies, which my Will has kept within Itself until now, and which It now wants to deliver in order to achieve the primary purpose of the Creation of man. Therefore, I want to form my first real Life within you.”
In hearing this, I said: ‘Ah, my love, Jesus; yet, I feel so bad for all these contrasts. And You know it…! It is true that this serves me to abandon myself more into your arms, and to ask from You what they do not give me; but with all this, I feel a breath of disturbance that troubles the peace of my soul. And you are telling me that You want to form your real Life in me? Oh, how far I am from this!”
And Jesus, again: “Daughter, don’t worry about this. All that I want is that you add nothing of your own, and that you obey as much as you can. It is known that all other sanctities – that is, those of obedience and of other virtues – are not exempt from pettiness, disturbance, arguments and wastes of time, which prevent the forming of a beautiful sun. At the most, they form a little star. Only the Sanctity of my Will is exempt from these miseries. Furthermore, my Will encloses all the Sacraments and their effects. Therefore, abandon yourself completely in my Will; make It yours, and you will receive the effects of the absolution, or of anything else which you might be denied.
So, I recommend that you not waste any time, since by wasting time you hamper my real Life, which I am forming in you.”
Volume 18 – November 5, 1925
The moans of the Holy Spirit in the Sacraments. The return of love of the soul.
“Do not allow your love to stop; run to all the Tabernacles, each Sacramental HOST; and you will hear the Holy Spirit moaning with unnarratable sorrow in each HOST. When souls receive the Sacrament of the EUCHARIST, not only their life is given to them, but my Own Life. Thus, the fruit of this Sacrament is to form my Life in them; and each Communion serves to make my Life grow, to develop in them in such a manner that they are able to say ‘I am another Christ.’ But, oh Me, how few take advantage of it! Indeed, how many times do I descend into hearts and find arms that wound Me; and they repeat the tragedy of my Passion to Me! And, as they consume the Sacramental Species, instead of pressing Me to remain with them, I am constrained to go out bathed in tears, crying over my Sacramental lot; and I do not find anyone to quiet my crying and my doleful moans… If you could break the veils of the HOST that cover Me, you would find Me bathed in tears, knowing the lot that awaits Me in descending into hearts.
“Therefore, let your exchange of love be continuous for each HOST to quiet my crying; you will render less sorrowful the moans of the Holy Spirit. Do not stop; otherwise, We will not find you always together with Us in our moans and in our secret tears; We will feel a void in your exchange of love…
Volume 19 – February 23, 1926
The reason why Jesus calls Luisa “the Little Newborn”: so that she may be reborn in His Holy Will to new Beauty, Light and Grace.
Why Jesus Calls Luisa “the little newborn of his Will”: Because She is Continually in the Act of Being Born in the Divine Volition; and This is Because She is United to the Single Act of God, the Only Act that Luisa does at this Point in Her Life. The Divine Works Done Once Remain in Continuous Act Which Never End.
Jesus, my Love and my Life, come, help me in my weakness and embarrassment in writing. Rather, let your Will, Itself, come to write, so that nothing be mine but only and all what you want to be written. And you, my Mamma and Celestial Mother of the Divine Will, come, guide my hand while I write; impress the words in me and make me easily understand the concepts which Jesus puts in my mind so I can write worthily about his most Holy Will; and my sweet Jesus will be content.
I was thinking: why does Blessed Jesus so often call me “the little newborn of his most Holy Will?” Perhaps it is because I am still wicked; and, not having made one step in his Will, with good reason He calls me ‘scarcely newborn.’
Now while I thought about this, my adorable Jesus put his arm around my neck and, squeezing me to his Heart, said to me: “I want to deny nothing to the little newborn in my Will. Do you want to know why I call you my little newborn? Newborn means to be in the act of being born. So, you must be reborn in each of your acts in my Will; and my Will, in order to repair for all the oppositions of the human will, wants to call you into my Volition to make you be reborn as many times as the human wills have opposed themselves to It. Therefore, you must preserve yourself always newborn. For whoever is in the act of being born it is easy to be reborn as often as is wanted and to preserve her without the growth of the human will. When one grows older, it becomes more difficult to preserve her from the life of her own ego.
That isn’t all. To the newborn of my Will it was necessary, proper, decorous for her and for our Will Itself that she be united to that single act of the Eternal One Who has no succession of Acts. This single act gives to the Divine Being all his grandeur, magnificence, immensity, eternity and power; in sum, it encloses everything in order to send forth from this single act all that He wishes. So, our little newborn in our Will, uniting herself with the single act of the Eternal One, must always be doing a single act, that is, to always be in continuous act of being born, to always do one single act: our Will alone. And while she does this single act, she must be reborn continually, but reborn to what? To new beauty, to new sanctity, to new light, to new likeness with her Creator. And, as you are reborn in our Will, the Divinity feels Itself reciprocated in Its purposes for which It put forth Creation and feels return to Itself the joys and felicity that creatures should give It. And, squeezing you to the Divine bosom, It calls you with joy and infinite graces and makes known other knowledges about our Will; and quickly makes you reborn again in our Will.
How beautiful is the lot of my little newborn. Are you not content? See, I also was born one time; but that birth made Me be reborn continually, reborn in each consecrated HOST, reborn every time the creature returns to my grace. The first birth gives Me the field to be reborn always. So it is with the divine works: done once, the act remains continuous without ever ending. So will it be with my little newborn of my Will; born once, she will remain in the act of continuous rebirth. Therefore, I am so attentive that your will not enter in you. I surround you with so much grace to make you always be reborn in my Will and my Will reborn in you.

How by Living in the Divine Will all Goods Become Centered in the Soul; and How the Primary Purpose of the Redemption was the Divine Fiat.
Having made Holy Communion I was calling everyone, my Queen Mamma, the Saints, the first man, Adam, with the succession of all generations even to the last man who will come upon the earth; and, then, all created things, so that all, together with me, prostrate around Jesus, would adore Him, bless Him, love Him, in order that nothing would be lacking around Him of all the works gone forth from his hands; neither a heart which beats, nor sun which shines, nor the vastness of the blue sky studded with stars, nor the sea which murmurs, not even the little flower which sends up its perfume. I wanted everyone and everything to center around Jesus HOST so that they would render Him the honors due Him. His Will made everything present to me as if all were mine; and I wanted to give all to Jesus.
Volume 20 – April 16, 1927
Our Lord Jesus Christ, in instituting the Most Holy EUCHARIST, placed his Sacramental Life in the Heart of his Mother. The Most Holy Virgin of sorrows found the secret of her strength in the Divine Will, because This contains immeasurable Strength.
While I was doing the hour which regarded the institution of the Most Holy EUCHARIST, my Jesus, all goodness, said to me:
” My daughter, when I set about to accomplish an act, first I observe if there is at least one creature in whom I can deposit it, who takes, that is to say, the good that I do and keeps it guarded and well defended; and then I work.
“Even when I instituted the Most Holy Sacrament, I looked about for this creature. My Queen Mother, with maternal longing, offered Herself to receive this my act and the deposit of my great gift, saying to Me: ‘My Son, if to watch over You and defend You I offered You in your Conception my womb and my whole being, now I offer You my maternal Heart to receive this sacred Deposit. I draw around your Sacramental Life my affections, my heart beats, my love, thoughts, all Myself, in order to keep You defended, accompanied, loved, repaired. I take the pledge of reciprocating to You the great gift that you make to creatures! Entrust Yourself to your Mother and I will take care of the defense of your Eucharistic Life.
“‘Since You Yourself have constituted Me Queen of all Creation, I have the right of drawing around You, in homage, in adoration, all the light of the sun, the stars, the sky, the sea, all the inhabitants of the air. In order to give You love and glory, I will surround You with the entire universe!’
“Having guaranteed the safety of the great deposit of my Sacramental Life and being certain of the vigilant guardianship of my Mother, who had given Me so many proofs of her fidelity, I instituted the Most Holy Sacrament. Among all, She was the only creature worthy of guarding, defending and repairing my act.
“See, then, when men receive Me, I descend into them together with the acts which my inseparable Mother accomplished.
“My daughter, when I want to do a grand work worthy of Me, it is necessary that first of all I select a creature to whom to entrust my Gift and from whom, in my turn, I have reciprocity.
“The farmer who wants to sow, doesn’t cast the seeds in the middle of the road, but goes in search of the proper field. First, he works the ground and forms the furrow; then he casts the seed which he covers over with earth. With anxiousness he awaits the time of the harvesting which, recompensing him for the labor performed, will give him the return for the seeds which he has entrusted to the earth. In like manner so does an individual who intends to form a beautiful object: at first he prepares the material for it; then he works it and completes it.
“And this is what I wish to do with souls. First I will accord them the great Gift of the manifestations of my Will; afterward, I will entrust to them the care of my Sacramental Life.”…

Solitude in which Jesus is placed by those who receive Him sacramentally; his tears, his sorrows. The mute species and the living species. Continuation of the Life of Jesus in the creature.
After Holy Communion I was making my usual thanksgivings and my Highest Good, Jesus, made Himself seem afflicted and taciturn, as if He felt the need of companionship. I, pressing myself tightly to Him, sought to console Him, and I assured Him that I would be always united to Him, to never leave Him alone. And Jesus seemed all content, and to vent his sorrow He said to me:
“My daughter, be faithful to Me and never leave Me alone, because the pain of solitude is the most oppressive. You know that companionship is the food and the vent of whoever suffers; whereas, without the companionship of who is loved, oh, how oppressive solitude becomes! My daughter, how many souls receive Me Sacramentally in their hearts and place Me in solitude! I feel Myself in them as in a desert, and as if I did not pertain to them; they treat Me as a stranger. But do you know why they do not take part in my Life, in my sanctity, in my graces and in my sorrows? This is why: companionship signifies taking part in all that which the person loved does and suffers. Souls, therefore, who receive Me and do not take part in my Sacramental Life, form for Me the most bitter solitude, by which, remaining alone like this, they render Me impotent to manifest how much I burn with love for them. Isolated, thus, is my Love, isolated my sanctity, my virtue, my Life, in sum all is solitude within Me and outside of Me. Oh, how many times I descend into hearts and cry because I find Myself alone; and thus I feel Myself not cared for, nor appreciated, nor loved; so much that I am constrained by their indifference to reduce Myself to melancholy silence; to see Myself secluded in their hearts; while, with Divine and invincible patience, I await the consummation of the Sacramental Species within which the Eternal Fiat has imprisoned Me. My real presence then goes away; and, with sorrow, I remove Myself because I have been able to leave nothing of my Sacramental Life in them, except perhaps only my tears.
“Therefore, so many souls are seen who receive Me Sacramentally but do not give to Me; they are barren of virtue, barren of love, of sacrifice. Poor things; they feed themselves with Me; but, since they do not keep Me company, they remain devoid of Me. Oh, in what straits of sorrow and cruel martyrdom is my Sacramental Life placed! Many times I feel Myself drowned with Love; I would want to relieve Myself, and I long to descend into hearts; but, also, I am constrained to go out of them more afflicted than before, because they have not paid attention not even to the flames that burn Me! At other times the pain of sorrow overwhelms Me; I long for a heart in order to have some relief to my pains; but what do I get!… He would rather I take part in his sorrow, not he in mine; and, yet, with fatherly goodness I do it: hiding my own sorrows, my tears in order to console him, while I remain without the longed for relief. Oh, who can tell you the so many sorrows of my Sacramental Life?
“There are many more who receive Me and place Me in bitter solitude in their hearts than those who give Me unworthy company! On the other hand, when I descend into a heart which gives Me company, then, with fatherly care, I place my Life in communication with it and leave there, as on deposit, my virtues, the fruit of my sacrifices, participation in my sacramental life. That fortunate heart then becomes my abode, the hiding place of my pains, the place of my refuge. I feel myself in it as recompensed for the sacrifice of my Eucharistic Life, because I find someone who breaks my solitude, who dries my tears, who gives Me liberty of letting Me vent my Love and my sorrows.
“That fortunate soul serves Me as a living species and very differently than the Sacramental Species, which give Me nothing. Those give Me nothing. They do not speak a word to Me to break my solitude; they are mute species.
“On the other hand, when I am in the soul who serves Me as living species, I and she develop life together; our hearts beat with a single beat; and, if I see her disposed, I communicate to her my pains and I continue in her my Passion. I can say that from the sacramental species I pass into living species to continue my Life upon the earth, not alone, but together with her. Therefore, my daughter, when I find a heart which loves Me and gives me sweet companionship, giving Me liberty to do what I wish, I reach to excesses; I disregard everything; I give so much that the poor creature feels herself drowned by my Love, by my Grace. Then, my Sacramental Life no longer remains sterile, no, but reproduces and bilocates itself, continuing then to remain always in her. This soul becomes my conqueror who administers to this poor Beggar of love her life and says to Me: ‘My Love, Your turn with pains have ended; now is my turn; therefore, quit begging and let me suffer in your place.’
“Oh, how content I am then!… My Sacramental Life remains in its place of honor, because it reproduces another of its lives in the creature.
“Therefore, I want you always with Me, living life together; you make yours my Life and I will make mine yours.”
Volume 35 – November 29, 1937
Our pains, united with the pains of Jesus, form His Life within us. There is no good which doesn’t come from them. How lack of love martyrs the divine Love.
My poor mind swims in the sea of the Divine Volition. I feel that It breathes, palpitates and circulates, more than blood, inside the veins if my soul, saying: ‘I am here, inside and outside of you – more than your own life. I run within each one of your acts. With my Love I make everything easy for you, and I make you happy.”
In the meantime, He was showing me all the pains that I suffered, invested by light – holding them tightly close to His Heart as many conquests of His Will. I remained preoccupied, and my always adorable Jesus, visiting me, said: “My little daughter of my Divine Will, know that all the pains which my Most Holy Humanity suffered on earth – every tear I shed, every drop of my Blood, every step and motion, and even my breath – were and still are invested by one single voice, with which they speak and shout continuously: ‘We want the Kingdom of the Divine Will to reign and dominate in the midst of the creatures. We want our divine rights to be placed in force!…’ And they pray, speak and moan around our Supreme Throne, without ever ceasing, that the Will of Heaven and of the earth may be one.
Now, whoever unites with my sufferings, with my heartbeats, breaths, steps and works – prays, speaks and moans together with all I did and suffered on earth. There is no good which does not arise from my sufferings. United with those of the creature, my sufferings form the depository – the HOSTs which receive her pains, forming one single prayer together, one single voice – one single Will. Even more, my pains carry the pains of the creature and everything she does before our Majesty, in order to make her want and do what I did. The pains of the creature kidnap my pains on earth in order to involve all the creatures in both my pains and her own, to dispose all the creatures to receive the Life of my Divine Will. The union with Me – of her pains with my pains – produces the great prodigy of my Life in the creature; a Life which operates, speaks and suffers as if I were on earth again. So, I animate the whole being of the creature with the power of my acts. My Life flows even in the most tiny trifles, so that all may be mine, animated by my Creative Power, and she may give Me the Love and the Glory of my own Life.
Volume 35 – January 24, 1938
How our Lord left for Heaven remaining on earth in the Tabernacles, to accomplish the Kingdom of the Divine Will. One who lives in the Divine Will can say with Jesus: ‘I leave and I stay.’
My flight in the Divine Volition continues. While I was visiting Jesus in the Sacrament, I wanted to embrace all the Tabernacles and each Sacramental Host in order to live together with my Prisoner Jesus. And I was thinking to myself: ‘What a sacrifice. What a long imprisonment – not of days, but of centuries! Poor Jesus… could He at least be repaid for this!’
And my beloved Jesus, visiting my little soul, all immersed in His flames of Love, said to me: “My good daughter, my first prison was Love. It imprisoned Me so much that I did not even have the freedom to breathe, to palpitate or to work if these too were not imprisoned in my Love. Therefore, my Love imprisoned Me inside the Tabernacle, but with reason and with highest divine Wisdom. Now, You must know that the chains of my Love made Me depart from Heaven during my Incarnation. I left to descend upon earth in search of my children and my brothers and sisters, in order to form for them, with my Love, so many prisons of Love as to make it impossible for them to leave. But while I left, I also remained in Heaven, since my Love – being my prison – bound Me within the celestial regions.
Now, having completed my office down here, I left for Heaven, remaining imprisoned inside each Sacramental Host. Do you know why? Because my Love, being my sweet imprisonment, told me: ‘The purpose for which you descended from Heaven to earth is not accomplished. Where is the Kingdom of our Will? It does not exist, neither is it known. So, remain there as a Prisoner in each Sacramental Host. In this way, there will not be only one Jesus, as in your Humanity, but a Jesus for each Sacramental Host which will exist. In a fury of love, your many Lives will make a way to the Divinity, as well as in each heart which will receive You. These Lives will have a little word to say to make our Will known, because when they descend into each heart, they will not be mute, but speaking, and You will speak about our FIAT in the secret of their hearts. You will be the Bearer of our Kingdom.’ I recognized the demands of my Love as just, so I remained willingly on earth in order to form the Kingdom of my Will – until the complete fulfillment of the work.
You see, by departing for Heaven while remaining on earth, my Life, spread in many Sacramental Hosts, will not be useless down here. I will certainly form the Kingdom of my Will. I would have never stayed if I knew I wasn’t going to obtain the intent; more so, since this is for Me a sacrifice greater than my very mortal Life. How many secret tears, how many bitter sighs in the midst of many devouring flames of love! I would like to devour all souls inside my Love to make those who are going to live in my Divine Volition rise again to new Life. This Kingdom will come from the center of my Love. It will burn the evils of the earth, relying upon Itself and arming Its Omnipotence; so, victory after victory, It will win our Reign in the midst of the creatures, to give It to them.
But I was not satisfied to remain prisoner by Myself. My Love, flaring up even more, made Me choose you to make you prisoner with chains so strong as to be impossible for you to escape Me. This, as an outpouring of my Love and for company in my imprisonment; to be able to talk to you extensively about my Will – Its anxiety, Its sighs for desire to reign – and also as a pretext of my Love to be able to say before the Supreme Majesty: ‘A creature of the human race is already our prisoner. We speak with her about our Will, to make It known, and extending Its Kingdom. This prisoner is like a deposit for the whole human family, so that We will have our Kingdom by right. I can say that each of my Sacramental Lives is also like a deposit that I give You, sufficient to secure my Kingdom for my children. But to these many deposits, my Love wanted to add the deposit of a simple creature who carries the marks of my imprisonment, so as to strengthen the bonds between creature and Creator, and therefore accomplish and complete the Kingdom of Our Will in the midst of the creatures.’
My prayers from each Tabernacle are incessant, so that the creatures may know my Will and may let It reign; and all I suffer – tears and sighs – I send to Heaven in order to move the Divinity to concede a grace so great. I send it to every heart, to move them to compassion for my tears and sufferings – to make them surrender to receive such a great good.”
Jesus remained silent. I was thinking to myself: ‘By making Himself a Prisoner, my dear Jesus did an act of heroism so great, only a God could do it. But while He is Prisoner, He is also free; more so, since He is free in Heaven, where He enjoys the fullness of His freedom. Not only this, but even on earth, how many times does He not come to me without His sacramental veils? But having imprisoned my poor existence…, He’s really done it this time. He knows in what a narrow prison He has put me, and how hard my chains are; and I cannot be like Him, Who while being a Prisoner, is also free… My prison is continuous.’
But as I was thinking this, He continued saying: “My daughter, poor daughter of mine, you were given my own destiny! When my Love wants to do good, It does not hold anything back – neither sacrifices nor pains. It almost seems as if It doesn’t want to hear about anything else: Its whole purpose is to make the good It wants arise. So, certainly I had to do this. This was not about any random good, but about a Kingdom of Divine Will to be established on earth. This good will be so great that no other good can be compared to it; all other goods will be like many little drops before the sea – like little sparks before the Sun. Therefore, don’t be surprised if ‘I have really done it this time’, as you say. Your continuous imprisonment was necessary to my Love, to keep Me company and to let Me speak about the knowledge of my Will which is so important to me, and which I felt the need to make known. You must know that as I speak to you about It, my Love repays you and frees you from the shackles of your human will, setting you free in the fields and dominions of the Kingdom of my Will. All the knowledge is directed to this: to unchain the creature from her will, from her passions and from her miseries. Therefore, thank Me for what I have made of you. My Love will know how to repay you, and will take into account every single breath of yours, and every instant of your imprisonment.”
After this, I continued to think about the prodigies of the Divine Volition, and my beloved Jesus added: “Daughter of my Will, as your Jesus said, in descending from Heaven to earth: ‘I leave and I stay’; when He ascended into Heaven He said: ‘I stay and I leave.’ My word repeats upon descending as Sacrament in the creatures: ‘I leave and I remain in the Tabernacles.’ In the same way, the creature who lives in my Will can repeat my word in all her acts. As soon as she begins her act, her Jesus is formed in that act. My Life has the virtue of multiplying Itself to infinity as many times as I want. Therefore, in all truth, she can say: ‘I leave and I stay. I leave for Heaven to beatify It, to reach my home and to make known to everyone my dear Jesus, Whom I enclosed in my act so that all may enjoy Him and love Him. I stay on earth, as my life, support and defense for all my brothers and sisters.’ How beautiful one act in my Will!”
Volume 36 – August 12, 1938
When the creature enters the Divine Will, Heaven lowers Itself and the earth rises to exchange the kiss of peace. The love of God in manifesting the truth. How everything becomes life. How all created things are members of Jesus. Varieties of love.
…Then, I was adding my acts in the Divine Will after having had Holy Communion, when my sweet Jesus told me: “How beautiful it is when I descend, as Sacrament, in the heart, and I find it in my Will. I find everything in it. I find my Mother and Queen and I feel that I receive again the glory – as if I were incarnating Myself again. I find all my works surrounding Me, honoring Me, loving Me; and since my Will circulates as blood and palpitates in all created things, they are united with Me; as if they were limbs originating from Me – remaining in Me. Therefore, everything I did on earth and all created things are like my arms, my feet, my heart, my mouth. They love Me and glorify Me in an infinite way. For the creature living in my Will, all that is mine is hers too, so she can give me my living Humanity to love Me, to keep Me separated and protected from all. She can give Me the love I had in creating the Sun. What speciality of love this light contains. It is filled with many different and innumerable effects of sweetness, colors and fragrances. In each effect there is a distinct love of mine, and you can see it in the varieties of sweetness; each one is different from the other. My love is insuperable. Not satisfied with letting man taste only one sweetness of its love – delighting him with one color, one single fragrance – it wanted to place many different sweetnesses; to drown and feed him with my love.
My primary food was my love; all other things came in secondary order. So the Sun, which does so much good to the earth, lays its light under man’s steps. It fills his eye with light; it invests him completely, following him everywhere. It is my love that runs within its light and, loving him, lets itself be tread upon by his steps. My love fills his eye with light, investing him completely, following him everywhere. That light contains my infinite extensions of love: my love that languishes, that wounds and enraptures; my love that burns, that sweetens everything, that gives life back to all; my love that takes the creature from every side, carrying her in its arms. Look my daughter, look at this light, and even you will not be able to count the many varieties of my love. If you will live in my Will, the Sun will be yours – a part of you. You will be able to give me as many varieties of love for as many as I have given to you.
All created things are my members. Heaven and each star are distinct loves of mine toward the creature; the wind – a limb of mine – does nothing other than blow my distinct love. Now it blows to her the freshness of my love, now the caress of my love, now it blows to her with my impetuous love, now it brings her the refreshment of my love. Even the drops of water in the sea squeeze together to never cease to murmur the varieties of love with which I love the creatures. Even in the air they breathe, I send, with each breath, a distinct ‘I love you’. Therefore, descending in the Sacrament, I bring created things with me as my own members, together with enchanting scenes of my love – so diverse and various – and I place them inside the creature like an army, to love her and to be loved. How hard and painful it is to love and not be loved. So, live always in my Will and It will present to you the many ways with which I loved you. In this way, you will love Me the way I want you to.”
Volume 36 – August 21, 1938
Difference between the life that Jesus forms in the Sacramental Hosts and the life Jesus forms in one who lives in His Will.
I was always along the way of the Divine Will and, feeling worried, I said to myself: ‘How can it be that so many divine lives can be formed in us for as many acts that we do in It?’ And my always adorable Jesus, in order to let me understand better, told me: “My daughter, everything is easy to Us because when We find one who gives her human will to live in Ours, We delight to form even in the motion, in the breathing, in the step, new lives which move, breathe and speak. The human will gives Us many veils in which We form many of our lives. This is the ultimate expression of our love, and We like it so much that, provided that the human will gives Us its little veil, We populate all its acts with the variety of our divine lives. And, then, my Eucharistic Life proves and confirms what I am telling you: aren’t, perhaps, the accidents of the Bread like small veils in which I am consecrated, alive and real in body, blood, soul and Divinity? If there are one thousand Hosts, I form my life in each one of them. If there’s one Host only, I form one life.
But what does the Host give to Me? Nothing. Not one ‘I love you’- not a breath, not a heartbeat; not a single step to accompany. I am lonely and many times this loneliness oppresses Me, embitters me – and I burst into tears. How heavy it is for Me not having one to whom I can say a word. I am in the nightmare of a deep silence. What can the Host give to Me? The hiding place in which to hide Myself. The tiny little prison to make Me, I would almost say… to make Me unhappy. But since it is my Will that wants Me to remain in each Sacramental Host – and my Will never brings unhappiness, either to Us or to the creatures who live in It – It makes flow in my Sacramental Life Our celestial joys, which are inseparable from Us. This, from our side, but the Host never gives Me anything. It doesn’t defend Me, it doesn’t love Me. Now, if I form my lives in the Hosts that give Me nothing, how much more would I form them those who live in my Will.
The difference between my Sacramental lives and the many lives I form in one who lives in my Will is incalculable. It is greater than the difference between Heaven and earth. It is, primarily, that we are never alone, and having company is the greatest joy that delights both the divine and the human life. Now you must know that, as I form my Life in the thought of the creature who lives in my Will, I feel the company of the human intelligence, which courts Me and loves Me. It comprehends Me, placing its memory, intellect and will in my power. Since these three powers were created in Our image, I feel our eternal memory – which forgets nothing – given to Us for company. I feel the company of my Wisdom, which understands Me and also the company of the human will fused with Mine – loving Me with my eternal love. How could I not multiply, for each of her thoughts, as many of our lives. When We find her understanding and loving Us more, We can say that We find our reward, since the more lives We form, the more We let ourselves be understood. We redouble our love and she loves us more. If We form our life in her word, We find company in her word; and since our Fiat is her own, We also find all the prodigies it operated when our Fiat was pronounced. If We form our life in her breath we find her breath, which breathes together with ours and keeps company with our omnipotent breath which, in creating her, gave her life. If We form our life in her motion, oh!, We find her hands that hug Us, squeeze Us tightly and don’t want to leave Us, ever again. If We form it in her steps, they follow Us everywhere.
What beautiful company is one who lives in our Will. There is no danger that she may leave Us alone – we are mutually inseparable. Therefore living in our Will is the prodigy of prodigies, in which We show off our many different lives; so We let her know who We are, what We can do, and We put the creature in order with us, as We created her. You must know that these, Our divine lives, bring with them seas of light and love, seas of Wisdom, beauty and goodness that invest the creature, letting her possess ever increasing light, never ceasing love, understanding Wisdom, ever growing beauty. This is why We love, so much, that the creature live in our Will: because We want to give; We want her to understand us; We want to crowd all the human acts with our divine lives. We don’t want to be constrained – repressed in our Divine circle. We have the power to give, but can not. How painful this is. And until the creatures live in our Will, they will always be the little ignorant of our Supreme Being, incapable of learning even the vowels of how much we love them and of how much We can give to them. They will always be our children – dissimilar from Us, who perhaps do not even know Us – degenerate of their Father.”
THE VIRGIN MARY IN THE
KINGDOM OF THE DIVINE WILL
Meditations for the Month of May, for the House of the Divine Will.
DAY 27 – Lesson of the Queen of Sorrows:
Dearest child, do not deny me your company in so much bitterness. The Divinity has already decreed the last day of my Son down here. One of His apostles has already betrayed Him, giving Him up into the hands of the Jews, to make Him die. My dear Son, taken by excess of love and not wanting to leave His children, for whom He came to search upon earth, has already left Himself in the Sacrament of the EUCHARIST, so that whoever wants Him, can possess Him. So, the life of my Son is about to end, and He is about to take flight for His celestial Fatherland.
The soul follows Jesus to the entrance into Jerusalem and requests the victory of the Divine Will over the human will. It follows it afterwards to the institution of the sacraments.
My Celestial lover, my “I love You” follows You into the triumphant entrance that You made in Jerusalem. I impressed it everywhere: on the branches of the palms, on the cloaks that were thrown at Your feet, on the cries of “Viva” with which the crowds received You!
My Divine King, Your appearance as a victorious conqueror, seem to give me the glad news that soon the Reign of Your Divine Will on earth will come. For this reason, I will not leave You. I will not tire of following You with my “I love You” until You, Yourself will promise me of its happy coming.
Already I seem to feel whispering in Your ear: “Oh soul, follow me. My love feels the need of Your company, my enemies, envious of the cries of ‘Viva’ from the mobs, try to take my life and therefore I, before dying (I die) want to institute the Sacrament of the Eucharist to leave a last remembrance of the intense love that I nurture for my children and to be able to create a perennial life among them.
Profit by this My gift, so as to ask of Me without intermission for My Divine Will!
My love, I press myself tightly to You to place my “I love You” in every sacrament that You instituted. I deposit in every baptism that is administered, in order to ask in virtue of it, to grant the Divine Fiat to each baptized person. I repeated in the sacrament of Confirmation so as to invoke the victory of Your Divine Will in every confirmed person. With this “I love You” of mine, I want to seal in the sacrament of Extreme Unction so as to obtain that every dying person complete his last act of his life in the Divine Will.
I impress it in the sacrament of Divine Orders, to ask of You that priests that conform to Your Will may possess and extend Your Holy Kingdom. My “I love You” is impressed on the sacrament of Matrimony to ask of You to produce families trained in the school of Your Divine Fiat.
It introduces itself in the sacrament of Penance so as to ask You to give in every confession of the faithful, death to sin and life to Your Divine Will.
My Jesus Savior, I want that my “I love You” never abandon You and be eternal with You. Therefore, I leave with my “I adore You, bless You and thank You” in every Sacramental HOST, in every sacred tear that You shed for every consecrated particle, in every offense that You receive and in each reparation that You accomplish, to ask with You that the Kingdom of Your Divine Will reigns on earth as it does in Heaven. My Celestial Archer, wound from every tabernacle of human will, extend over them Your chains of love. Use all Your amorous strategies to conquer them. Then, in exchange, give us Your Will so that it can be one with ours on earth as it is in Heaven.
The soul follows Jesus into Gethsemane and into the sufferings of His Passion.
My afflicted Jesus, now that You left Yourself in the sacrament of the EUCHARIST, so that You could descend into each heart, place Yourself at the disposition of creatures, saying to them: “I do not leave you. I remain with you all so that I can form the Kingdom of My Divine Will among you, My children.” Your love is felt to be appeased and You now enter fully into the sea of Your Passion.
Prodigies of the Queen of Heaven
in the Reign of the Divine Will.
CHAPTER XI – July 8, 1935
Those Who Live in the Divine Will Acquire Inseparability From Their Creator, and in Heaven They Will Be Transformed Into Suns and Stars That Will Crown the Celestial Sovereign. Participation of the Queen of Heaven at the Institution of the Sacrament of the Holy EUCHARIST.
Wandering in the Divine Will, I found myself delighted and surprised before the most beautiful work of the Holy Trinity, that is to say before our Queen Mother. While I was contemplating in silent admiration, my lovable Jesus said to me with sweetness and with indescribable love:
“My child, how beautiful my Mother is! Her empire extends everywhere. Her beauty ravishes and enchants all hearts. There is no being that does not bend its knees to venerate Her. Think . . . for such beauty emanates from the inseparability bestowed upon Her by my Divine Will.
“In virtue of the same identical Fiat that We always pronounce together, She takes part in all my works and has the right to do all that I do. I don’t do anything without her contribution. In all my life there was no action in which She did not participate. We are inseparably united even in the institution of the Blessed Sacrament, and together We pronounce that Fiat, that all powerful Fiat, that transubstantiated the bread and wine into my Body and Blood, into my Soul and Divinity.
“Just as I would like to have obtained her Fiat before taking human form in the flesh of her virginal womb, so I still wanted it when I was about to begin my Sacramental Life. Besides, how could I have had the heart to exclude my Mother from an act in which my Love gave vent to exuberant excesses, incredible in magnitude? And not only did I want Her with Me in performing this prodigy, but I also made Her Queen of my Sacramental Life.
“There are not enough words to express the impetus with which She accepted the new mission of Motherhood, nor phrases to express the tenderness with which She renewed the offer of her womb and of her beautiful soul so that She could protect Me from the horrendous ingratitudes and enormous sacrileges which I would have to undergo in the Sacrament of my Love!
“My daughter, if I greatly insist that my Will become the Life of man, it is because I desire to have him as a companion in my acts since I yearn that he love Me with my same Love, and that he act through my own actions. I do not want to be the isolated God, and I do not consent that my creatures live alone without taking part in our Divine work.
“See how my Celestial Mother has, in an admirable way, taken part in everything that I did during my mortal Life, thanks to the single will that loved Us! When I produced miracles, She was united with Me in the operation of the prodigy. When I recalled the dead to life, I felt that She remained united to Me within the power of my Will. When I suffered, She suffered with Me in totality and constancy.
“The inseparability of person and of action was the supreme honor that She received from the Divine Fiat. Additionally, in time her work fused with mine, and it proved to Me more love and greater glory than I could desire. In such a way I deposited and She received in her maternal Heart the works performed. She was even jealous to the point of taking care of my very breath. The unity of our Wills, united as one, and Her having become sacred through my works, produced a flame of pure love sufficient to burn and consume the entire world.”
After a few moments of silence, during which I remained imbued with an unspeakable joy and ineffable understanding of the seas of grace of my Celestial Sovereign, my greatest good Jesus added:
“My daughter, admire my Mother! Her majesty is enchanting, before her holiness the heavens bow. Her praises are of incalculable value, who can claim to be like Her? She is par excellence, the only true Mistress and Mother of all creatures, and the Queen of the Universe! Of all the treasures that She possesses, do you want to know, my daughter, what is most precious to Her? They are the souls!
“Each soul is dearer to Her than the entire world. Moreover, because no one enters Heaven except through her means and by virtue of her Motherhood and sufferings, She consequently considers them all as her property. It is thus justifiable to give to the Holy Virgin the title of Mistress of Souls. They form all of her riches, her ineffable joy, and the pride and the conquest of her infinite love! See, therefore, how rich She is! Her riches are special. They are full of loves that speak, of loves which are singing the praises of the Celestial Mistress.
“As Mother, She shall have the possession of an innumerable stock of children, and, as Sovereign of the Reign of the Divine Will, She shall have her subjects. These children and these subjects will form her most shining crown. As suns and as stars they will shine around her august body with such beauty as to ravish the Heavens. The children of the Reign of my Divine Will will be the first to give Her glory and to render to Her the honors of Queen.
“Therefore I beg you to intensely pray that this Kingdom come on Earth soon. The Divine Mother, who was already crowned by the Holy Trinity, waits that her beloved children adorn Her with a new wreath of glory—proclaiming Her already in this life as their Queen, and offering their own existence in attestation of [their] love. How many Divine secrets would men uncover if they understood the meaning of living in my Will! On your part, my daughter, you should prefer to die rather than not live in my Will!”
CHAPTER XVIII – May 28, 1937
The Supreme Being, When He Willed the Incarnation of the Eternal Word in the Womb of the Celestial Queen, Entrusted to Her the Task of Carrier of Souls to Jesus.
This morning, after having received Holy Communion, my Celestial Mother made a sweet and dear surprise to me. She made Herself seen inside of me with the baby Jesus, whom She held tightly to her maternal Heart, and so covered by her arms that, in order to see Him and enjoy Him with my love, I was forced to abandon myself also into her embrace. Yes, I wanted to be so close, to be held tightly to Them so that I could love with the same love that Jesus and the Queen Mother had for each other. Moreover, while I was thus, in all goodness and tenderness the Sovereign Queen said to me:
“My darling child, know that I am the bearer of Jesus. This task was given to Me by the Supreme Being. Only after He had been assured that I had the grace, the love, the capacity, and the same Divine Will to care for Him, defend Him, and love Him, only then did He give Me the gift and made the Eternal Word become Incarnate in my womb.
“The Supreme Being said to Me: ‘My daughter, We are making You the great gift of the Life of the Son of God. Thus, since You will possess Him, You can give Him to whoever You wish—but you must defend Him, and never leave Him alone when You give Him. You must supply love if they do not love Him, and make reparation if they offend Him. In short, see that He lacks nothing for decency, holiness, and the decorum that He needs. Be attentive, Daughter, It is the greatest gift that We make to You. We also give you the gift of bilocation [for] as many times as you wish. Therefore whoever wants Him may receive Him, and also possess this great gift.’
“Consequently, my darling, this Son is mine, I am the possessor of his Life. Furthermore, since He is mine I know his amorous secrets, his anxieties, his sighs. These are so powerful that they can drive Him to tears, and with repeated sobs He tells me: ‘My Mamma, give Me to souls, I want souls!’ Then I, his Mother, sigh and cry together with Him. I want what He wants, which is that they all possess my Son.
“I must, however, be sure of the safety of his Life, the great gift that God entrusted to Me. Therefore, because of this, in the Sacrament He descends into the hearts of creatures, and I also descend to protect my gift. If I were to leave my poor Son alone, and if He did not have his Mother with Him, some bad souls would hurt Him!
“For those who do not heartily tell Him ‘I love You’ when they receive Him, I dispose to love Him in their stead. For those who receive Him distracted, without thinking of the great HOST that they are receiving, I pour myself out to Him so as not to allow Him to feel the distractions and coldness of creatures. For those who almost make Him weep, I dry his tears, I soothe Him, and at the same time scold those creatures so [that] they will stop making Him sad.
“Who can relate to you the moving scenes that take place in the hearts of those who receive Him Sacramentally? There are souls who would like to love Him more, and in that case I give them both my love and that of Jesus so that they can love Him with our own Love. These are scenes of Heaven, before which even the Angels are enraptured, and at the same time make Us recover from the pains that other creatures give Us.
“Who can tell you everything? I am the Bearer of Jesus, He does not want to go to creatures without Me, so much so that when the Priest gets ready to pronounce the words of the Consecration on the Holy HOST, I spread my maternal wings so that He descends from between my hands to be consecrated. Furthermore, if unworthy hands would ever touch Him, I would make reparation with mine, defending Him and covering Him with my love.
“This is not all. I am always attentive to see if creatures want my Son. Thus, if some sinner repents of his grave sins, and the light of grace appears in his heart, then I quickly bring Jesus to him as confirmation of the pardon, and provide all that is needed so that He may remain in that converted heart!
“The Divine Will which I possess reveals to Me who wants Him, and I rush to him. I fly there, never leaving him, because I am the Bearer of Jesus. This is a task given to Me by the Supreme Being, and from which I must not evade. It is a task that at the same time makes Me experience the joys of my Motherhood, makes Me taste the fruit of my sorrows, gives Me the glory of the Kingdom that I possess, and the fulfillment of the Divine Will on earth.”
THE TWENTY-FOUR HOURS OF THE PASSION
Fourth Hour From 8 to 9 PM
The Eucharistic Supper
My sweet Love, always insatiable in your love, I see that as You finish the legal supper together with your dear disciples, You stand up, and united with them, You raise the hymn of thanksgiving to the Father for having given you food, wanting to repair for all the lack of thanksgiving of the creatures, and for all the means He gives us for the preservation of corporal life. This is why, O Jesus, in anything You do, touch or see, You always have on your lips the words, “Thanks be to You, O Father”. I too, Jesus, united with You, take the words from your very lips, and I will say, always and in everything: “Thank You for myself and for all”, in order to continue the reparations for the lack of thanksgiving.
The washing of the feet
But, O my Jesus, it seems that your love has no respite. I see that You make your beloved disciples sit down again; You take a bucket of water, wrap a white cloth around your waist and prostrate Yourself at the apostles’ feet, with a gesture so humble as to draw the attention of all Heaven, and to make It remain ecstatic. The apostles themselves stay almost motionless in seeing You prostrate at their feet. But tell me, my Love, what do You want? What do You intend to do with this act so humble? A humility never before seen, and which will never be seen!
“Ah, my child, I want all souls, and prostrate at their feet like a poor beggar, I ask for them, I importune them and, crying, I plot love traps around them in order to obtain them!
Prostrate at their feet, with this bucket of water mixed with my tears, I want to wash them of any imperfection and prepare them to receive Me in the Sacrament.
I so much cherish this act of receiving Me in the EUCHARIST, that I do not want to entrust this office to the angels, and not even to my dear Mama, but I Myself want to purify them, down to the most intimate fibers, in order to dispose them to receive the fruit of the Sacrament; and in the apostles I intended to prepare all souls.
I intend to repair for all the holy works and for the administration of Sacraments, especially those made by priests with a spirit of pride, empty of divine spirit and of disinterest. Ah, how many good works reach Me more to dishonor Me than to honor Me! More to embitter Me than to please Me! More to give Me death than to give Me life! These are the offenses which sadden Me the most. Ah, yes, my child, count all the most intimate offenses which they give Me, and repair with my own reparations. Console my embittered heart.”
O my afflicted Good, I make your life my own, and together with You I intend to repair for all these offenses. I want to enter into the most intimate hiding places of your divine Heart and repair with your own Heart for the most intimate and secret offenses, which You receive from your dearest ones. O my Jesus, I want to follow You in everything, and together with You I want to go through all the souls who are about to receive You in the EUCHARIST, enter into their hearts, and place my hands together with yours, to purify them.
O please, O Jesus, with these tears of yours and this water with which You washed the feet of the apostles, let us wash the souls who must receive You; let us purify their hearts; let us inflame them, and shake off the dust with which they are dirtied, so that, when they receive You, You may find in them your satisfactions, instead of your bitternesses.
But, my affectionate Good, while You are all intent on washing the feet of the apostles, I look at You, and I see another sorrow which pierces your Most Holy Heart. These apostles represent all the future children of the Church, and each of them, the series of each one of your sorrows. In some, weaknesses, in some, deceits; in one, hypocrisies, in the other, excessive love for interests; in Saint Peter the lack of firmness and all the offenses of the leaders of the Church; in Saint John the offenses of your most faithful ones; in Judas all the apostates, with all the series of great evils which they commit.
Ah, your sorrow is suffocated by pain and by love; so much so, that unable to contain it, You pause at the feet of each apostle and burst into tears, praying and repairing for each one of these offenses, and impetrating the appropriate remedy for all.
My Jesus, I too unite myself to You; I make your prayers, your reparations and your appropriate remedies for each soul, my own. I want to mix my tears with yours, that You may never be alone, but may always have me with You, to share in your pains.
But, sweet Love of mine, as You continue to wash the feet of the apostles, I see that You are now at Judas’ feet. I hear your labored breath. I see that You not only cry, but sob, and as You wash those feet, You kiss them, You press them to your Heart; and unable to speak with your voice because it is suffocated by crying, you look at him with eyes swollen with tears, and say to him with your heart: “My child, O please, I beg you with the voices of my tears – do not go to hell! Give Me your soul, which I ask of you, prostrate at your feet. Tell Me, what do you want? What do you demand? I will give you everything, provided that you do not lose yourself. O please, spare this sorrow to Me, your God!” And again, You press those feet to your Heart. But in seeing the hardness of Judas, your heart is cornered; your heart suffocates You, and You are about to faint. My Heart and my Life, allow me to sustain You in my arms. I understand that these are your loving devices, which You use with each obstinate sinner.
O please, I beg You, my Heart – as I compassionate You and repair for the offenses which You receive from the souls who are obstinate in not wanting to convert, let us go around the earth, and wherever there are obstinate sinners, let us give them your tears to soften them, your kisses and your squeezes of love to bind them to You, in such a way that they will not be able to escape, and therefore relieve You from the pain of the loss of Judas.
Institution of the EUCHARIST
My Jesus, my joy and delight, I see that your love runs, and runs rapidly. You stand up, sorrowful as You are, and You almost run to the altar where there is bread and wine ready for the consecration. I see you, my heart, assuming a look wholly new and never seen before: your Divine Person acquires a tender, loving, affectionate appearance; your eyes blaze with light, more than if they were suns; your rosy face is radiant; your lips are smiling and burning with love; your creative hands assume the attitude of creating. I see You, my Love, all transformed: your Divinity seems to overflow from your Humanity.
My Heart and my Life, Jesus, this appearance of yours, never before seen, draws the attention of all the apostles. They are caught by a sweet enchantment and do not dare even to breathe. Your sweet Mama runs in spirit to the foot of the altar, to admire the portents of your love. The Angels descend from Heaven, asking themselves: “What is this? What is this? These are true follies, true excesses! A God who creates, not heaven or earth, but Himself. And where? In the most wretched matter of a little bread and a little wine.”
But while they are all around You, oh insatiable Love, I see that You take the bread in your hands; You offer it to the Father, and I hear your most sweet voice say: “Holy Father, thanks be to You, for always answering your Son. Holy Father, concur with Me. One day, You sent Me from Heaven to earth to be incarnated in the womb of my Mama, to come and save our children. Now, allow Me to be incarnated in each HOST, to continue their salvation and be life of each one of my children. Do You see, O Father? Few hours of my life are left: who would have the heart to leave my children orphaned and alone? Many are their enemies – the obscurities, the passions, the weaknesses to which they are subject. Who will help them? O please, I supplicate You to let Me stay in each HOST, to be life of each one, and therefore put to flight their enemies; to be their light, strength and help in everything. Otherwise, where shall they go? Who will help them? Our works are eternal, my love is irresistible – I cannot leave my children, nor do I want to.”
The Father is moved at the tender and affectionate voice of the Son. He descends from Heaven; He is already on the altar, and united with the Holy Spirit, concurs with the Son. And Jesus, with sonorous and moving voice, pronounces the words of the Consecration, and without leaving Himself, creates Himself in that bread and wine.
Then You communicate your apostles, and I believe that our celestial Mama did not remain without receiving You. Ah, Jesus, the heavens bow down and all send to You an act of adoration in your new state of profound annihilation.
But, O sweet Jesus, while your love remains pleased and satisfied, having nothing left to do, I see, O my Good, on this altar, HOSTs which will perpetuate until the end of centuries; and lined up in each HOST, your whole sorrowful passion, because the creatures, at the excesses of your love, prepare for You excesses of ingratitude and enormous crimes. And I, Heart of my heart, want to be always with You in each Tabernacle, in all the pyxes and in each consecrated HOST which will ever be until the end of the world, to emit my acts of reparation, according to the offenses You receive.
O Jesus, I contemplate You in the Holy HOST, and as though seeing You in your adorable Person, I kiss your majestic forehead; but in kissing You, I feel the pricks of your thorns. O my Jesus, in this holy HOST, how many creatures do not spare You thorns. They come before you, and instead of sending You the homage of their good thoughts, they send You their evil thoughts; and You lower your head again as You did in the Passion, receiving and bearing the thorns of these evil thoughts. Oh my Love, I draw near You to share in your pains; I place all my thoughts in your mind in order to expel these thorns which sadden You so much. May each one of my thoughts flow in each one of your thoughts, to make an act of reparation for each evil thought, and therefore console your sad mind. Jesus, my Good, I kiss your beautiful eyes; I see your loving gaze toward those who come before your presence, anxious to receive the return of their gazes of love. But how many come before You, and instead of looking at You and searching for You, look at things which distract them, and so deprive You of the pleasure You feel in the exchange of gazes of love! You cry, and as I kiss You, I feel my lips wet with your tears. My Jesus, do not cry; I want to place my eyes in yours to share in these pains with You, and to cry with You. And wanting to repair for all the distracted gazes of creatures, I offer You my gazes, always fixed in You.
Jesus, my Love, I kiss your Most Holy ears; I now see You intent on listening to what the creatures want from You, in order to console them. But, instead, they send to your ears prayers badly said, full of diffidence, prayers done out of habit; and in this Holy HOST, your hearing is molested more than in your very Passion. O my Jesus, I want to take all the harmonies of Heaven and place them in your ears to repair You, and I want to place my ears in yours, not only to share these pains with You, but to offer You my continuous act of reparation, and to console You.
Jesus, my Life, I kiss your Most Holy Face; I see it bleeding, bruised and swollen. The creatures, O Jesus, come before the Holy HOST, and with their indecent postures and evil discourses, instead of giving you honor, seem to send you slaps and spittle. And You, just like in the Passion, receive them in all peace and patience, and You bear everything! O Jesus, I want to place my face close to yours, not only to kiss You and to receive the insults which come to You from your creatures, but to share with You all your pains. With my hands, I intend to caress You, wipe off the spit, and press You tightly to my heart; and of my being, to make many tiny little pieces, placing them before You, like many souls who adore You; and to turn my movements into continuous prostrations, to repair for the dishonors You receive from all creatures.
My Jesus, I kiss your Most Holy lips; I see that in descending sacramentally into the hearts of your creatures, You are forced to lean on many cutting, impure, evil tongues. Oh, how embittered You remain! You feel as though poisoned by these tongues, and it is even worse when You descend into their hearts! O Jesus, if it were possible, I would want to be in the mouth of each creature, to turn into praises all the offenses You receive from them!
My weary Good, I kiss your Most Holy head. I see it tired, exhausted, and all occupied in your crafting of love. Tell me, what do you do? And You: “My child, in this HOST I work from morning to evening, forming chains of love; and as souls come to Me, I bind them to my Heart. But do you know what they do to Me? Many wriggle free by force, shattering my loving chains; and since these chains are linked to my Heart, I am tortured and become delirious. Then, in breaking my chains, they render my crafting useless, looking for the chains of the creatures. And they do this even in my presence, using Me in order to reach their own ends. This grieves Me so much as to make Me faint and rave.”
How much compassion I feel for You, O Jesus! Your love is cornered, and in order to relieve you from the offenses you receive from these souls, I ask You to chain my heart with those chains broken by them, in order to give You my return of love in their place.
My Jesus, my Divine Archer, I kiss your breast. The fire You contain in it is such that, in order to give a little vent to your flames and to take a little break from your work, You begin to play with the souls who come to You, shooting arrows of love which come out from your breast toward them. Your game is to form arrows, darts, lightnings; and when they strike souls, You become festive. But many, O Jesus, reject them, sending You arrows of coldness, darts of lukewarmness, and lightnings of ingratitude in return. And You remain so afflicted as to cry bitterly! Oh Jesus, here is my breast, ready to receive not only your arrows destined to me, but also those which the other souls reject; so You will no longer remain defeated in your love game. In this way, I will also repair for the coldness, the lukewarmness and the ingratitude, which You receive from them.
Oh Jesus, I kiss your left hand, and I intend to repair for all the illicit or blameworthy touches, done in your presence; and I beg You always to hold me tightly to your Heart!
Oh Jesus, I kiss your right hand, and I intend to repair for all the sacrileges, especially the Masses badly celebrated! How many times, my Love, You are forced to descend from Heaven into unworthy hands and breasts; and even though You feel nausea for being in those hands, Love forces You to stay. Even more, in some of your ministers, You find the ones who renew your Passion, because, with their enormous crimes and sacrileges, they renew the Deicide! Jesus, I am frightened at this thought! But unfortunately, just as in the Passion You were in the hands of the Jews, You are in those unworthy hands, like a meek lamb, waiting, again, for your death and also for their conversion. Oh Jesus, how much You suffer! You would like a loving hand to free You from those bloodthirsty hands. O Jesus, when You are in those hands, I beg You to call me near You, and in order to repair You, I will cover You with the purity of the Angels, I will perfume You with your virtues to reduce the nausea You feel in being in those hands, and I will offer You my heart as escape and refuge. While You are in me, I will pray for Priests, that they may be your worthy Ministers. Amen.
O Jesus, I kiss your left foot, and I intend to repair for those who receive You out of habit and without the necessary dispositions.
O Jesus, I kiss your right foot, and I intend to repair for those who receive You to offend You. O please, when they dare to do this, I beg You to renew the miracle You made to Longinus. Just as You healed him and converted him at the touch of the Blood which gushed forth from your Heart, pierced by his lance, in the same way, at your sacramental touch, convert the offenses into love, and the offenders into lovers!
Oh Jesus, I kiss your most sweet Heart, into which all offenses pour, and I intend to repair for everything, to give you return of love for all, and to share in your pains, always together with You!
O Celestial Archer, if any offense escapes my reparation, I beg You to imprison me in your Heart and in your Will, so that I may repair for everything. I will pray the sweet Mama to keep me always with Her, in order to repair everything, and for everyone. We will kiss You together, and keeping You sheltered, we will drive away from You the waves of bitterness which You receive from the creatures. O please, O Jesus, remember that I too am a poor sinful soul. Enclose me in your Heart, and with the chains of your love, do not only imprison me, but bind, one by one, my thoughts, my affections, my desires. Chain my hands and my feet to your Heart, that I may have no other hands and feet but Yours!
And so, my Love, my prison will be your Heart, my chains will be made of Love; your flames will be my food, your breath will be mine, the fences preventing me from going out will be your Most Holy Will. So I will see nothing but flames, I will touch nothing but fire; and while they give me life, they will give me death, like that You suffer in the Holy HOST. I will give You my life, and so, while I remain imprisoned in You, You will be released in me. Is this not your intent in imprisoning Yourself in the HOST, in order to be released by the souls who receive You, becoming alive in them? And now, as a sign of love, bless me, give the mystical kiss of love to my soul, while I remain clasped and clinging to You.
O my sweet Heart, I see that after You have instituted the Most Holy Sacrament and have seen the enormous ingratitude and the offenses of the creatures at the excesses of your love, although wounded and embittered, you do not draw back; rather, You want to drown everything in the immensity of your love.
I see You, O Jesus, as You administer Yourself to your apostles, and then You add that they too must do what You have done, giving them authority to consecrate; so You ordain them priests and institute the other Sacraments. You take care of everything, and You repair for everything: the sermons badly given, the Sacraments administered and received without disposition, and therefore without effects; the mistaken vocations of priests, on their part and on the part of those who ordain them, not using all means in order to discern the true vocations. Ah, nothing escapes You, O Jesus, and I intend to follow You and to repair for all these offenses.
Then, after You have given fulfillment to everything, You gather your apostles and set out for the Garden of Gethsemani, to begin your sorrowful Passion. I will follow You in everything, to keep You faithful company.
Reflections and Practices
Jesus is hidden in the HOST to give life to all. In His hiddenness, He embraces all the centuries and gives light to all. In the same way, hiding ourselves in Him, we will give life and light to all with our prayers and reparations, even to the heretics and to the unfaithful, because Jesus does not exclude anyone.
What should we do in our hiddenness? In order to become similar to Jesus Christ, we must hide everything in Him: thoughts, glances, words, heartbeats, affections, desires, steps and works; even our prayers – we should hide them in the prayers of Jesus. And just as loving Jesus embraces all the centuries in the EUCHARIST, we will also embrace them. Clinging to Him, we will be the thought of every mind, the word of every tongue, desire of every heart, step of every foot, work of every arm. By doing this, we will divert all the evils which all the creatures would do to Him from the Heart of Jesus, trying to substitute for this evil with all the good we can do, and pressing Jesus to give salvation, sanctity and love to all the souls.
In order to reciprocate the life of Jesus, our life must be fully conformed to His own. The soul must have the intention of being in all the Tabernacles of the world in order to continuously keep Him company, and to give Him continuous relief and reparation; and with this intention do all the actions of the day. The first tabernacle is within us, in our heart; therefore we must pay great attention to all that good Jesus wants to do in us. Many times, being in our heart, Jesus makes us feel the need of prayer. Ah, it is Jesus that wants to pray, and wants us together with Him, almost identifying Himself with our voice, with our affection and with all our heart in order to make our prayer be one with His own! So, in order to give honor to the prayer of Jesus, we will be attentive to give Him all our being, so that loving Jesus may raise His prayer to speak to the Father, and to renew in the world the effects of His own prayer.
We need to pay attention to each one of our interior motions, because good Jesus now makes us suffer, now wants us in prayer, now places us in one mood, now in another, in order to repeat His own life in us.
Let us suppose that Jesus places us in the circumstance of exercising patience. He receives so grave and so many offenses from creatures, that He feels moved to recur to chastisements to strike the creatures. And here He gives us the opportunity to exercise patience. We must give Him honor, bearing everything with peace, just as Jesus does. Our patience will snatch from His hands the chastisements which other creatures draw from Him, because He will exercise His own Divine Patience within us. The same with all the other virtues, just as with patience. In the Sacrament, loving Jesus exercises all virtues; from Him we will draw fortitude, docility, patience, tolerance, humility, obedience.
Good Jesus gives us His flesh for food, and we will give Him, our love, will, desires, thoughts and affections for His nourishment. In this way we will compete with the love of Jesus. We will let nothing enter into us which is not Him; therefore, everything we will do – everything must serve to nourish our beloved Jesus. Our thought must feed the divine thought – that is, thinking that Jesus is hidden in us, and wants the nourishment of our thought. So, by thinking in a saintly way, we nourish the divine thought. Our words, heartbeats, affections, desires, steps, works – everything must serve to nourish Jesus. We must place the intention of feeding the creatures in Jesus.
O my sweet Love, in this hour You transubstantiated Yourself into bread and wine. Please, O Jesus, let all that I say and do be a continuous consecration of Yourself in me and in souls.
Sweet Life of mine, when You come into me, let my every heartbeat, desire, affection, thought and word feel the power of the sacramental consecration, so that, being consecrated, all my little being may become as many HOSTs in order to give You to souls.
O Jesus, sweet Love of mine, may I be your little HOST in order to enclose all of Yourself in me, like a living HOST.
26. To Mother Paolina
Fiat – In Voluntate Dei!
My good and reverend Mother Paolina,
(…) Now let’s come to us, my good mother. I delayed writing you in order to let Holy Christmas draw near and then send you my poor wishes. But what can I, poor little ignorant, wish to you? So I ask dear Baby Jesus that He Himself bring you my sincere wishes. During these days, you will prepare your heart in order to form it as a HOST in which the Divine Infant will come to be reborn in you, and will bring you, as a wish and a gift, the heartbeat and the word of the Fiat, His baby tears, His tender moans and wails, in order to be consoled and to receive your tender love in return. My Mother, welcome Him soon, soothe His crying, warm Him, and be attentive so that He may always remain with you. This is what the Celestial Baby wants: He comes to remain with you. I am sure that you will not send Him back, and He will make of you His Royal Palace, His little Paradise. This is the wish I am sending you; I believe you will be content.
27. To Mother Cecilia
Fiat – In Voluntate Dei!
My good Mother Cecilia,
Thank you for everything. I don’t know how to repay you, but I believe that Jesus will do it for me. I am sorry for your illness, since sight is so necessary. But the Divine Fiat is that which must embrace us, enclose us within Itself, in such a way as to consume us completely in the Divine Will. In fact, you must know that when we really decide always to do the Divine Will, His love is so great that He covers all our past miseries, defects and passions, as if we were newly reborn, and therefore, as though having made us new again, He wants to see nothing but His Will in us.
Now I send you my Christmas wishes in advance; I entrust you to Baby Jesus. During these days, make of your heart a little HOST, and dear Little Jesus will bring you as His wish, His love, His baby tears, His wails, His whole life, and will infuse in you His tender and compassionate love for His pains as a baby. This is my wish, and I also wish the whole community, especially those who remember me, the rebirth of Baby Jesus within their hearts.
Fiat – In Voluntate Dei!
My good daughter in the Divine Volition,
Courage and trust. The Divine Will has found Its work in your soul, and when you suffer more, it seems that Jesus wants to hasten His work, to receive the contentment to see you as He wants and likes, and to be able to say: “My daughter is like Me, in the sufferings as much as in wanting what I Myself wanted – only the Will of the Celestial Father. How happy I am! It is true that you suffer, but I run to sustain you in my arms, that you may feel my strength and the powerful breath of my Will, which searches for the new life I want in you, and converts all your pains into precious gems of love. And when I feel embittered, I run, I come to you, to be sweetened in your pains which carry the seal of my Divine Will, and to sweeten the bitternesses that, unfortunately, the other creatures give Me. Therefore, I recommend to you, my daughter: be patient, be my HOST, let Me come to be consecrated in you. But I do not want you as a dead HOST, but alive and speaking; and may your suffering be the lamp, always lit, which never extinguishes, and which loves Me incessantly.”My blessed daughter, how good is Jesus! It seems that He reduces us to dust in order to give us new life, and to find His own Life in us.
The Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta was born in Corato in the Province of Bari, on April 23,1865 and died there in the odor of sanctity on March 4, 1947.
Luisa had the good fortune to be born into one of those patriarchal families that still survive in our realm of Puglia and like to live deep in the country, peopling our farmhouses. Her parents, Vito Nicola and Rosa Tarantino, had five children: Maria, Rachele, Filomena, Luisa and Angela. Maria, Rachele and Filomena married. Angela, commonly called Angelina, remained single and looked after her sister until she died.
Luisa was born on the Sunday after Easter and was baptized that same day. Her father – a few hours after her birth – wrapped her in a blanket and carried her to the parish church where holy Baptism was administered to her.
Nicola Piccarreta was a worker on a farm belonging to the Mastrorilli family, located at the middle of Via delle Murge in a neighborhood called Torre Disperata, 27 kilometers from Corato. Those who know these places, set among the sunny, bare and stony hills, can appreciate the solemnity of the silence that envelops them. Luisa spent many years of her childhood and adolescence on this farm. In front of the old house, the impressive, centuries-old mulberry tree still stands, with the great hollow in its trunk where Luisa used to hide when she was little in order to pray, far from prying eyes. It was in this lonely, sunny spot place that Luisa’s divine adventure began which was to lead her down the paths of suffering and holiness. Indeed, it was in this very place that she came to suffer unspeakably from the attacks of the devil who at times even tormented her physically. Luisa, to be rid of this suffering, turned ceaselessly to prayer, addressing in particular the Virgin Most Holy, who comforted her by her presence.
Divine Providence led the little girl down paths so mysterious that she knew no joys other than God and his grace. One day, in fact, the Lord said to her: “I have gone round and round the world again and again, and I looked one by one at all my creatures to find the smallest one of all. Among so many I found you. Your littleness pleased me and I chose you; I entrusted you to my angels so that they would care for you, not to make you great, but to preserve your littleness, and now I want to begin the great work of fulfilling my will. Nor will you feel any greater through this, indeed it is my will to make you even smaller, and you will continue to be the little daughter of the Divine Will” (cf. Volume XII, March 23, 1921).
When she was nine, Luisa received Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time and Holy Confirmation, and from that moment learned to remain for hours praying before the Blessed Sacrament. When she was eleven she wanted to enroll in the Association of the Daughters of Mary – flourishing at the time – in the Church of San Giuseppe. At the age of eighteen, Luisa became a Dominican Tertiary taking the name of Sr. Maddalena. She was one of the first to enroll in the Third Order, which her parish priest was promoting. Luisa’s devotion tothe Mother of God was to develop into a profound Marian spirituality, a prelude to what she would one day write about Our Lady.
Jesus’ voice led Luisa to detachment from herself and from everyone. At about eighteen, from the balcony of her house in Via Nazario Sauro, she had a vision of Jesus suffering under the weight of the Cross, who raised his eyes to her saying: “O soul, help me!“. From that moment an insatiable longing to suffer for Jesus and for the salvation of souls was enkindled in Luisa. So began those physical sufferings which, in addition to her spiritual and moral sufferings, reached the point of heroism.
The family mistook these phenomena for sickness and sought medical help. But all the doctors consulted were perplexedat such an unusual clinical case. Luisa was subject to a state ofcorpse-like rigidity – although she showed signs of life – and no treatment could relieve her of this unspeakable torment. When all the resources of science had been exhausted, her family turned to their last hope: priests. An Augustinian priest, Fr. Cosma Loiodice, at home because of the Siccardian* laws, was summoned to her bedside: to the wonder of all present, the sign of the Cross which this priest made over the poor body, sufficed to restore her normal faculties instantly to the sick girl. After Fr. Loiodice had left for his friary, certain secular priests were called in who restored Luisa to normality with the sign of the Cross. She was convinced that all priests were holy, but one day the Lord told her: “Not because they are all holy – indeed, if they only were! – but simply because they are the continuation of my priesthood in the world you must always submit to their priestly authority; never oppose them, whether they are good or bad” (cf. Volume I). Throughout her life, Luisa was to be submissive to priestly authority. This was to be one of the greatest sources of her suffering. Her daily need for the priestly authority in order to return to her usual tasks was her deepest mortification. In the beginning, she suffered the most humiliating misunderstandings on the part of the priests themselves who considered her a lunatic filled with exalted ideas, who simplywanted to attract attention. Once they left her in that state for more than twenty days. Luisa, having accepted the role of victim, came to experience a most peculiar condition: every morning she found herself rigid, immobile, huddled up in bed, and no one was able to stretch her out, to raise her arms or move her head or legs. As we know, it required the presence of a priest who, by blessing her with the sign of the Cross, dispelled that corpse-like rigidity and enabled her to return to her usual tasks (lace-making). She was a unique case in that her confessors were never spiritual directors, a task that Our Lord wanted to keep for himself. Jesus made her hear his voice directly, training her, correcting her, reprimanding her if necessary and gradually leading her to the loftiest peaks of perfection. Luisa was wisely instructed and prepared during many years to receive the gift of the Divine Will.
The archbishop at that time, Giuseppe Bianchi Dottula (December 22, 1848-September 22,1892), came to know of what was happening in Corato; having heard the opinion of several priests, he wished to exercise his authority and assume responsibility for this case. After mature reflection he thought it right to delegate to Luisa a special confessor, Fr. Michele De Benedictis, a splendid figure of a priest, to whom she opened every nook and cranny of her soul. Fr. Michele, a prudent priest with holy ways, imposed limits on her suffering and instructed her todo nothing without his permission. Indeed, it was Fr. Michele who ordered her to eat at least once a day, even if she immediately threw up everything she had swallowed. Luisa was to live on the Divine Will alone. It was under this priest that she received permission to stay in bed all the time as a victim of expiation. This was in 1888. Luisa remained nailed to her bed of pain, sitting there for another 59 years, until her death. It should be noted that until that time, although she had accepted her state as a victim, she had only occasionally stayed in bed, since obedience had never permitted her to stay in bed all the time. However, from New Year 1889 she was to remain there permanently.
In 1898 the new prelate, Archbishop Tommaso de Stefano (March 24, 1898 – 13 May 1906) delegated as her new confessor Fr. Gennaro Di Gennaro, who carried out this task for twenty-four years. The new confessor, glimpsing the marvels that the Lord was working in this soul, categorically ordered Luisa to put down in writing all that God’s grace was working within her. None of the excuses made by the Servant of God to avoid obeying her confessor in this were to any avail. Not even her scant literary education could excuse her from obedience to her confessor. Fr. Gennaro Di Gennaro remained cold and implacable, although he knew that the poor womanhad only been to elementary school. Thus on February 28, 1899, she began to write her diary, of which there are thirty-six large volumes! The last chapter was written on December 28, 1939, the day on which she was ordered to stop writing.
Her confessor, who died on September 10,1922, was succeeded by the canon, Fr. Francesco De Benedictis, who only assisted her for four years, because he died on January 30, 1926. Archbishop Giuseppe Leo (January 17, 1920-January 20,1939) delegated a young priest, Fr. Benedetto Calvi, as her ordinary confessor. He stayed with Luisa until she died, sharing all those sufferings and misunderstandings that beset the Servant of God in the last years of her life.
At the beginning of the century, our people were lucky enough to have Blessed Annibale Maria Di Francia present in Puglia. He wanted to open in Trani male and female branches of his newly founded congregation. When he heard about Luisa Piccarreta, he paid her a visit and from that time these two souls were inseparably linked by their common aims. Other famous priests also visited Luisa, such as, for example, Fr. Gennaro Braccali, the Jesuit, Fr. Eustachio Montemurro, who died in the odor of sanctity, and Fr. Ferdinando Cento, Apostolic Nuncio and Cardinal of Holy Mother Church. Blessed Annibale became her extraordinary confessor and edited her writings, which were little by little properly examined and approved by the ecclesiastical authorities. In about 1926, Blessed Annibale ordered Luisa to write a book of memoirs of her childhood and adolescence. He published various writings of Luisa’s, including the book L’orologio della Passione, which acquired widespread fame and was reprinted four times. On October 7,1928, when the house of the sisters of the Congregation of Divine Zeal in Corato was ready, Luisa was taken to the convent in accordance with the wishes of Blessed Annibale. Blessed Annibale had already died in the odor of sanctity in Messina.
In 1938, a tremendous storm was unleashed upon Luisa Piccarreta: she was publicly disowned by Rome and her books were put on the Index. At the publication of the condemnation by the Holy Office, she immediately submitted to the authority of the Church.
A priest was sent from Rome by the ecclesiastical authorities, who asked her for all her manuscripts, which Luisa handed over promptly and without a fuss. Thus all her writings were hidden away in the secrecy of the Holy Office.
On October 7, 1938, because of orders from above, Luisa was obliged to leave the convent and find a new place to live. She spent the last nine years of her life in a house in Via Maddalena, a place which the elderly of Corato know well and from where, on March 8, 1947, they saw her body carried out.
Luisa’s life was very modest; she possessed little or nothing. She lived in a rented house, cared for lovingly by her sister Angela and a few devout women. The little she had was not even enough to pay the rent. To support herself she worked diligently at making lace, earning from this the pittance she needed to keep her sister, since she herself needed neither clothes nor shoes. Her sustenance consisted of a few grams of food, which were prepared for her by her assistant, Rosaria Bucci. Luisa ordered nothing, desired nothing, and instantly vomited the food she swallowed. She did not look like a person near death’s door, but nor did she appear perfectly healthy. Yet she was never idle, she spent her energy either in her daily suffering or her work, and her life, for those who knew her well, was considered a continuous miracle.
Her detachment from any payments that did not come from her daily work was marvelous! She firmly refused money and the various presents offered to her on any pretext. She never accepted money for the publication of her books. Thus one day she told Blessed Annibale that she wanted to give him the money from her author’s royalties: “I have no right to it, because what is written there is not mine” (cf. Preface of the L’orologio della Passione, Messina, 1926). She scornfully refused and returned the money that pious people sometimes sent her.
Luisa’s house was like a monastery, not to be entered by any curious person. She was always surrounded by a few women who lived according to her own spirituality, and by several girls who came to her house to learn lace-making. Many religious vocations emerged from this “upper room”. However, her work of formation was not limited to girls alone, many young men were also sent by her to various religious institutes and to the priesthood.
Her day began at about 5.00 a.m., when the priest came to the house to bless it and to celebrate Holy Mass. Either her confessor officiated, or some delegate of his: a privileged granted by Leo XIII and confirmed by St. Pius X in 1907. After Holy Mass, Luisa would remain in prayer and thanksgiving for about two hours. At about 8.00 a.m. she would begin her work which she continued until midday; after her frugal lunch she would stay alone in her room in meditation. In the afternoon – after several hours of work – she would recite the holy Rosary. In the evening, towards 8.00 p.m., Luisa would begin to write her diary; at about midnight she would fall asleep. In the morning she would be found immobile, rigid, huddled up on her bed, her head turned to the right, and the intervention of priestly authority would be necessary to recall her to her daily tasks and allow her to sit up in bed.
Luisa died at the age of eighty-one years, ten months and nine days, on March 4, 1947, after a fortnight of illness, the only one diagnosed in her life, a bad attack of pneumonia. She died at the end of the night, at the same hour when every day the priest’s blessing had freed her from her state of rigidity. Archbishop Francesco Petronelli (May 25, 1939-June 16, 1947) archbishop at the time. Luisa remained sitting up in bed. It was impossible to lay her out and – an extraordinary phenomenon – her body never suffered rigor mortis and remained in the position in which it had always been.
Hardly had the news of Luisa’s death spread, like a river in full spate, all the people streamed into her house and police intervention was necessary to control the crowds that flocked there day and night to visit Luisa, a woman very dear to them. A voice rang out: “Luisa the Saint has died“. To contain all the people who were going to see her, with the permission of the civil authorities and health officials, her body was exposed for four days with no sign of corruption. Luisa did not seem dead, she was sitting up in bed, dressed in white; it was as though she were asleep, because as has already been said, her body did not suffer rigor mortis. Indeed, without any effort her head could be moved in all directions, her arms raised, her hands and all her fingers bent. It was even possible to lift her eyelids and see her shining eyes that had not grown dim. Everyone believed that she was still alive, immersed in a deep sleep. A council of doctors, summoned for this purpose, declared, after attentively examining the corpse, that Luisa was truly dead and that her death should be accepted as real and not merely apparent, as everyone had imagined.
Luisa had said that she was born “upside down”, and that therefore it was right that her death should be “upside down” in comparison with that of other creatures. She remained in a sitting position as she had always lived, and had to be carried to the cemetery in this position, in a coffin specially made for her with a glass front and sides, so that she could be seen by everyone, like a queen upon her throne, dressed in white with the Fiat on her breast. More than forty priests, the chapter and the local clergy took part in the funeral procession; the sisters took turns to carry her on their shoulders, and an immense crowd of citizens surrounded her: the streets were incredibly full; even the balconies and rooftops of the houses were swarming with people, so that the procession wound slowly onwards with great difficulty. The funeral rite of the little daughter of the Divine Will was celebrated in the main church by the entire chapter. All the people of Corato followed the body to the cemetery. Everyone tried to take home a keepsake or a flower, after having touched her body with it; a few years later, her remains were translated to the parish of Santa Maria Greca.
In 1994, on the day of the Feast of Christ the King, in the main church, Archbishop Carmelo Cassati, in the presence of a large crowd including foreign representatives, officially opened the beatification cause of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.
1865 – Luisa Piccarreta was born on April 23, the Sunday after Easter, in Corato, Bari, to Nicola Vito and Rosa Tarantino, who had five daughters: Maria, Rachele, Filomena, Luisa and Angela. A few hours after Luisa’s birth, her father wrapped her in a blanket and took her to the main church for baptism. Her mother had not suffered the pangs of labor: her birth was painless.
1872 – She received Jesus in the Eucharist on the Sunday after Easter, and the sacrament of Confirmation was administered to her on that same day by Archbishop Giuseppe Bianchi Dottula of Trani.
1883 – At the age of eighteen, from the balcony of her house, she saw Jesus, bent beneath the weight of the Cross, who said to her: “O soul! Help me!“. From that moment, solitary soul that she was, she lived in continuous union with the ineffable sufferings of her Divine Bridegroom.
1888 – She became a Daughter of Mary and a Dominican Tertiary with the name of Sr. Maddalena
1885-1947 – A chosen soul, a seraphic bride of Christ, humble and devout, whom God had endowed with extraordinary gifts, an innocent victim, a lightening conductor of Divine Justice, bedridden for sixty-two years without interruption, she was a herald of the Kingdom of the Divine Will.
March 4 – Full of merits, in the eternal light of the Divine Will she ended her days as she had lived them, to triumph with the angels and saints in the eternal splendor of the Divine Will.
March 7 – For four days her mortal remains were exposed for the veneration of an immense throng of the faithful who went to her house to have a last look at Luisa the Saint, so dear to their hearts. The funeral was a realm triumph; Luisa passed like a queen, borne aloft on shoulders among the lines of people. All the clergy, secular and religious, accompanied Luisa’s body. The funeral liturgy took place in the main church with the participation of the entire chapter. In the afternoon, Luisa was buried in the family Chapel of the Calvi family.
Jul 3,1963 – Her mortal remains were definitively laid to rest in Santa Maria Greca.
Nov 20, – Feast of Christ the King: Archbishop Cassati officially opened the 1994 beatification cause of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta in the principal church of Corato, in the presence of a huge crowd of people, locals and foreigners.
2005 – Archbishop Giovanni Battista Picchierri, current Archbishop of Trani. It is he who requested that the Cause of Beatification of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta be continued.

CONSECRATION TO JESUS CHRIST,
KING OF THE UNIVERSE
Oh Jesus, King of kings, God of Goodness, God of Love, God of Mercy, I adore, I love, I thank, I glorify Your Most Holy Will emanating from Your Omnipotence, guided by Your Wisdom, accompanied by Your Goodness and Love.
Everywhere and in every time, be it either in joy or in pain, may Your Most Holy Will, Your Divine Love, be the star that I gaze at, the law that governs me, the air that I breathe, the heartbeat of my heart, the substance or, better, the Life of my life. To such an end, I unite all my prayers and actions to Yours, all my life to Yours, as well as to that of the Virgin Mother, of Saint Joseph and of all the Elect that have been, are now and shall ever be, with all good, past, present and future which is real and possible in Heaven and on earth.
I consecrate and give all myself, what I have, what I am, what pertains to
me, what is dear to me, my life, my death, my eternity, all that You have created and will create by Your Supreme Volition, by Your Infinite Love. And I pray You, oh Infinite Wisdom, to inscribe me with indelible characters in Your adorable Heart as the ardent and zealous child of Your Divine Volition, of Your pure Love. I make this donation in the Power of the Father, in the Wisdom of the Son, in the Virtue of the Holy Spirit, in my name, and in the name of all creatures to obtain the advent and the expansion of the Kingdom of the Divine Will, of Your Divine Love upon the earth. For pity’s sake, oh my Lord, grant that from every lip and from every heart there may continually be raised, as from a sacred altar, the prayer that You, Yourself, as the first, addressed to the Father, “YOUR KINGDOM COME! YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.”
