Volume 23 – March 8, 1928
“My daughter (Luisa), Our Paternal Goodness created man (Adam) to keep him on Our Paternal knees, for Us to enjoy him continuously, and for him to enjoy himself Perennially with his Creator. And so that his Enjoyments and Ours might be stable, We kept him on Our Paternal knees; and since Our Will was to be his also, It brought the Echo of all Our Acts into man’s inmost being, whom We Loved as Our child. And Our child, in hearing Our Echo, acted as the Repeater of the Acts of his Creator. What contentments did not form between him and Us, as this creating Echo of Ours resounded in Our child’s inmost heart, Forming in him the Order of Our Acts, the Harmony of Our Joys and Happinesses, the Image of Our Sanctity. What Happy Times for him (Adam) and for Us (Triune God).
“But do you know who snatched this child so Loved by Us from Our Paternal knees? The human will. It took him so far away from Us, that he lost Our Creating Echo, and no longer Knew anything of what his Creator was doing; and We lost the Happiness of seeing Our child Happy and Amusing himself on Our Paternal knees, because the Echo of his human will took over in him, that embittered him, tyrannized him with passions, the most degrading ones, such as to render him so unhappy as to arouse pity.
“This is precisely what it means to Live in Our Will—to Live on Our Paternal knees, under Our Care, at Our Expenses, in the Opulence of Our Riches, Joys and Happinesses. If you knew the contentment We (Triune God) feel in seeing the creature (Luisa) Living on Our knees, all Attentive on hearing the Echo of Our Word, the Echo of Our Works, the Echo of Our Steps, the Echo of Our Love, to Act as the Repeater of them, you (who are reading)would be more attentive, so that nothing might escape you of Our Echo, to Give Us the contentment of seeing your littleness Acting as the Repeater of the Acts of your Creator.”
On hearing this, I said to Him: “My Love, if one must Live in Your Divine Will by Living on Your Paternal knees, one should not do anything—neither operate, nor walk; otherwise, how can one remain on Your knees?”
And Jesus: “No, no, one can do anything; Our Immensity is such that she (Luisa) will find Our Paternal knees everywhere, ever ready for her Acts, willing to hold her everywhere, clasped to Our Divine knees; more so, since what she (Luisa) does is nothing other than the Echo of what We (Triune God) do.”
After this, I was feeling worried about these writings on the Divine Will, and my sweet Jesus made Himself seen in my interior, holding all the Volumes (of the Book of Heaven) written on It, taking them in His Hands, one by one, looking at them with such Loving Tenderness, as if His Sacred Heart were about to burst. And as He took them, He placed them, all ordered, in His Most Holy Heart. I was amazed in seeing with how much Love He (Jesus) Loved these writings, and with how much Jealousy He enclosed them in His Sacred Heart in order to keep them.
And Jesus, in seeing my amazement, told me: “My daughter (Luisa), if you knew how much I (Jesus) Love these Writings…. They cost Me more than the very Creation and Redemption. How much Love and Work I (Jesus) have put into these Writings—they cost Me very, very much; in them there is all the value of My Divine Will. They are the Manifestation of My Kingdom and the Confirmation that I (Jesus) want the Kingdom of My Divine Will in the midst of creatures. The Good that they (The 36 Volumes of The Book of Heaven) do will be Great; they will be like Suns that will rise in the midst of the thick darkness of the human will; like Lives that will put to Flight death for the poor creatures. They will be the Triumph of all My works, the Most Tender, the Most convincing Narration of how I Loved and do Love man. Therefore, I Love them (The 36 Volumes) with such Jealousy, that I (Jesus) will keep them in My Divine Heart, nor will I permit even a single word to be lost.
