Mary Mother of the Church – The Church’s Unused Weapon – Spiritual Mother of All Peoples

The Fifth Marian Dogma: The Church’s Unused Weapon

victories-3by Dr. Mark Miravalle and Richard L Russell on September 24, 2013

Pope Francis will be welcoming the Our Lady of Fatima statue from Portugal to the Vatican next month.  He plans to use the occasion to consecrate the world in to the Immaculate Heart of Mary—as Pope John Paul II had done in 1984 and 2000—just as the Blessed Mother had requested in her 1917 apparition to three shepherd children at Fatima, Portugal in order to foster world peace.  Indeed, with the crises in Syria and Egypt boiling and threatening to spillover to neighboring states, the looming crisis over Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons program, and Russia’s growing anti-western foreign policy stance and a more assertive role in the rapidly deteriorating Middle East, Pope Frances’ consecration to Our Lady of Fatima is urgently needed.

While the Marian apparition at Fatima is widely and rightly acknowledged among Catholics for its heavenly offer of assistance to humanity, another and more recent apparition with an offer of another mighty weapon for the Church’s spiritual arsenal goes unused.  Just as the Fatima apparitions occurred at the closing stages of World War I, other and just as significant apparitions occurred at the ending of World War II in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.  Those apparitions had even more to say about the future of international politics than those at Fatima and were given by the Blessed Mother in some 56 appearances to a humble Dutch woman from 1945 to 1959.  The apparitions after investigation and discernment were courageously declared in 2002 by the bishop of Amsterdam, Jozef Marianus Punt, as worthy of belief.  Tragically, Bishop Punt’s declaration has been largely ignored by much of the Church hierarchy and the faithful.

The Blessed Mother in the Amsterdam apparitions called herself “The Lady of All Nations” and warned of a coming age of “degeneration, disaster, and war.”  But she offered help if Catholics would petition the Holy Father to proclaim the fifth and final Marian dogma with Mary as “advocate, mediatrix, and co-redemptrix.”  That proclamation would be the capstone of the Church’s four “dogmas” or solemnly pronounced doctrines about the Virgin Mary.  First, Mary is the Mother of God (Council of Ephesus, 431).  Second, she is a Perpetual Virgin (Lateran Council, 649).  Third, Mary was conceived without original sin, or her “Immaculate Conception” (Bl. Pius IX, 1854).  And fourth, Mary was assumed body and soul into heaven, or her “Assumption” (Pius XII, 1950).

The Lady of All Nations promised that the proclamation of the fifth and final Marian dogma would bring about a descent of the Holy Spirit in a fashion akin to the Pentecost and the founding of the Holy Catholic Church after Christ’s Ascension from earth to heaven.  To prepare the world for this mysterious new Pentecost, the Lady of All Nations asked the faithful to share the image of her apparition in Amsterdam and to daily recite a short prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now your Spirit over the earth.  Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster, and war.  May the Lady of All Nations, the Blessed Virgin Mary, be our Advocate.  Amen.

When one takes a glance at the world stage today, one sees the world in a state of degeneration, disaster, aour_lady_of_all_nations-scaled1000nd war just as the Lady of All Nations had warned in Amsterdam decades ago.  She revealed, for example, that the world’s climate would drastically change long before anyone ever uttered the words “climate change” as we commonly do today.  Climate change is now on pace to happen 10 times faster than any change recorded in the past 65 million years, according to a team of Stanford University professors.  Meanwhile, societies are crumbling, economies are failing such as the European Union’s monetary experiment, political chaos and violence are increasing, especially in the Middle East where Syria has used chemical weapons against civilians, all of which seems to be tearing the world apart.  Social scientists have impressively harnessed information technology to graphically show the growing frequency and intensity of turmoil, protests, and violence since 1979 in the world.  All of these events conform to the warnings of those given by the Lady of All Nations in Amsterdam to prove the authenticity of the apparitions there.

With the world’s descent into political, military, economic, environmental, and societal chaos, it behooves Catholics to contemplate the fifth Marian dogma as an unused weapon in the Church’s arsenal.  The popes of Catholic Church, based on scripture and tradition, have officially taught over the course of centuries that the Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus, is also the Spiritual Mother of All Peoples.  Mary performs this role as spiritual mother to humanity in three basic ways: as advocate, mediatrix, and co-redemptrix.

Our Lady’s role as advocate simply confirms that this mother intercedes for our wants and needs with a maternal perseverance and power beyond that of any of the other saints.  Mary brings the needs of mankind to the throne of Christ.  She is the principal intercessor on behalf of her earthly children, and as queen, she has the greatest possible intercessory power to Jesus, the king of the kingdom of God, for humanity’s needs.  In the Old Testament, the queen mother of the king had the greatest power of intercession to her son, the king in the line of David, on behalf of the Jewish people.  In the New Testament, Mary is the new queen mother who gives birth to the “king of kings,” and is crowned as the queen and advocate in the kingdom of God to become the greatest intercessor for the people of God to Christ the King.  For this role of interceding for humanity, Mary is called the “advocate,” her most ancient title, dating back to the 2nd Century.

Mary is the mediatrix for humanity who spiritually nourishes her earthly children by dispensing the graces of salvation.  At the Wedding of Cana, Mary interceded to bring the graces of Jesus to all of humanity.  She “mediated” or interceded to bring Jesus himself, the source of all graces, into the world.  Mary too was appointed by Jesus himself at the climax of his redeeming sacrifice on the cross to become the spiritual mother of all peoples and to dispense to humanity heavenly graces when he said to Mary, “Behold, your son.”  Jesus then told John, and all those who seek to become beloved disciples of Jesus, to “behold your Mother.”  For these roles in dispensing the saving graces of Jesus to her earthly children, Mary is called the “mediatrix of all graces.”  As Bl. John Paul II explained, “mediatrix is implicit in the term, mother.”  The papal Magisterium of the last two centuries has consistently taught this Marian role as mediatrix of all graces, and Pope Benedict XVI Emeritus published this same title on 11 February 2013, the day he announced his resignation.

Some readers at first glance of the proposed fifth dogma would understandably baulk at the concept of Mary as “co-redemptrix.”  They might object that Mary was human while only her divine son Jesus could redeem humanity with his crucifixion.  But taking a deeper look at the proposed dogma, one sees that it reinforces—and does not contradict— Church beliefs and teachings.  Mary uniquely shared in the work of Jesus to redeem the human family, both by giving Jesus his body, the very instrument of redemption, and by suffering with Him at Calvary in a way unparalleled by another other creature.  For this extraordinary role with Jesus in saving souls, Mary has been called the “co-redemptrix” in the Church since the 14th century.  The prefix “co” means “with,” not “equal.”  It must be stressed that Mary is not a goddess on a level or equality with Jesus, but rather she is the unique immaculate human co-redeemer with Jesus, just as every Christian is called to be a “co-redeemer in Christ,” as Bl. John Paul II was fond of saying.

It is clear then that the recognition of the Blessed Mother as advocate, mediatrix, and co-redemptrix, has a long tradition in the Church even if it has not yet been proclaimed dogma.  Likewise, the petitioning of the Holy Father for the declaration of dogma is a Church tradition.  Petition drives for Marian dogmas are simply Catholic precedence.  They are not democratic power plays seeking to force the Pope’s hand.  Instead, petition drives are to be seen as manifestations of the sensus fidelium (the “common consensus of the faithful”) in encouraging the Holy Father to a particular course of action which the faithful discern to be for the good of the Church.

Authentic Catholic petition drives must be a request of something that conforms to the faith and moral teachings of the Church and must be Nativity of BVMsubmitted with an unconditional obedience to the ultimate discernment and decision of the Vicar of Christ.  The Marian dogmas of her Immaculate Conception and her Assumption, for example, were solemnly proclaimed only after a lengthy petition drive from the Catholic faithful to the Holy Father.  Before the papal definition of the Immaculate Conception by Blessed Pius IX in 1854, millions of petitions from the Catholic world were sent to the Vatican, with particular perseverance coming from Spain and its Catholic government.  In the case of the Assumption, infallibly declared by Pius XII in 1950, over 8 million petitions spanning 95 years were documented by the Holy Office in support of this Marian dogma.

History shows that graces have been poured on the Church after Marian dogmas are proclaimed.  The historic situation of the papacy and the Church was bleak, for example, just before the proclamation of the Immaculate Conception.  Pope Pius IX had been chased out of the Vatican by Masonic forces from southern Italy.  While in exile in Gaeta, two cardinals approached the beleaguered Holy Father with the remedy to this dire situation:  proclaim the dogma of the Immaculate Conception.  Pius IX acquiesced to their request and from exile wrote to the world’s bishops to state his intention to proclaim the new Marian dogma.  The dogma was proclaimed, the papacy was restored, the Vatican and Church were secured, and the Marian dogma of the Immaculate Conception was subsequently declared infallible by the Holy Father.

The proclamation of the fifth Marian dogma would satisfy God’s condition of never forcing grace upon us.  The Holy Father’s free acknowledgement and solemn announcement of Mary’s roles as advocate, mediatrix, and co-redemptrix would allow her to fully enact these motherly roles of intercession on behalf of humanity.  Since Mary’s motherly titles also are her motherly functions of grace for the Church, the more solemnly we acknowledge these motherly roles, the more powerfully she can exercise them.  If these roles were to be infallibly proclaimed by the Holy Father as the highest authority of the world, this proclamation would inextricably lead to the fullest possible release of heavenly graces through our Blessed Mother.

The proclamation of the dogma of Mary “Advocate, Mediatrix, and Co-redemptrix” by the Holy Father would enable the Mother of Jesus to shower the world with a historic outpouring of grace, redemption, and peace in a new and dynamic way—an event which Marian apparitions like Fatima refer to as the “Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.”  Pope Francis has been on a blessed tirade of Marian teaching and witness starting with his very first papal act going to St. Mary Major’s Basilica in Rome to thank and honor Our Lady, to his return visit there in early Mary, and to his request to have his papacy consecrated to Our Lady of Fatima on 13 May.  The Holy Father will be wielding a powerful spiritual weapon in one hand in October when he consecrates in the world to Our Lady of Fatima.  We hope and pray that Pope Francis will soon pick up with his other hand the spiritual weapon the Lady of All Nations offered the Church in Amsterdam by proclaiming the fifth and final Marian dogma.  The Holy Father and the Holy Catholic Church will need the weapons of both Fatima and Amsterdam to combat the onslaught of evil as evidenced by the world’s heavier, intensifying, and quickening degeneration, disaster, and war.

The Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will
The Descent of the Holy Spirit

The soul to her Celestial Mother:

Here I come to You again, Sovereign of Heaven. I feel so drawn to You that I count the minutes, waiting for your Supreme Height to call me in order to give me the beautiful surprises of your maternal lessons. Your love of Mother enraptures me, and my heart rejoices in knowing that You love me. I feel great confidence that my Mama will give me so much love and so much grace as to form a sweet enchantment for my human will; in such a way that the Divine Will may extend Its seas of light within my soul, and place the seal of Its Fiat in all my acts. O please! O holy Mama, never leave me alone again, and let the Holy Spirit descend into me, that He may burn away all that does not belong to the Divine Will.

Lesson of the Queen of Heaven:

My blessed child, your words echo in my Heart, and feeling wounded, I pour Myself into you with my seas of graces. Oh, how they run toward my child, to give you the life of the Divine Will! If you are faithful to Me, I will leave you no more. I will always be with you, to give you the food of the Divine Will in each one of your acts, words and heartbeats.

Now listen to Me, my child. Our Highest Good, Jesus, has departed for Heaven and is now before His Celestial Father, pleading for His children and brothers, whom He has left upon earth. From the Celestial Fatherland, He looks at everyone – no one escapes Him; and His love is so great that He leaves His Mama on earth as comfort, help, lesson and company for His children and Mine.

Now, you must know that as my Son departed for Heaven, I remained together with the apostles in the cenacle, waiting for the Holy Spirit. They were all around Me, clinging to Me, and we prayed together; they did nothing without my advice. And when I began to speak to instruct them and to narrate some anecdotes about my Son which they did not know – as for example, the details of His birth, His baby tears, His loving traits, the incidents that happened in Egypt, the so many wonders of the hidden life in Nazareth… – oh, how attentive they were in listening to Me! They were enraptured in hearing of the so many surprises, the so many teachings that He had given Me, which were to serve for them. In fact, my Son had said little or! nothing about Himself to the apostles, reserving for Me the task of making known to them how much He had loved them, and the details which only His Mother knew. So, my child, I was in the midst of my apostles more than the Sun of the day. I was the anchor, the wheel, the boat in which they found refuge, to be safe and sheltered from every danger. Therefore, I can say that I delivered the nascent Church upon my maternal knees, and that my arms were the boat in which I led Her to a safe harbor, and I still do.Holy Spirit 1.jpg

Then the time came for the descent of the Holy Spirit, promised by my Son, in the cenacle. What a transformation, my child! As they were invested, they acquired new science, invincible strength, ardent love. A new life flowed within them, which rendered them intrepid and courageous, in such a way that they scattered throughout the whole world to make Redemption known, and to lay down their lives for their Master. I remained with beloved John, and was forced to leave Jerusalem, as the storm of persecution began.

My dearest child, you must know that I still continue my Magisterium in the Church – there is nothing which does not descend from Me. I can say that I pour all Myself out for love of my children, and I nourish them with my maternal milk. Now, during these times, I want to display an even more special love by making known how my whole life was formed in the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Therefore I call you onto my knees, into my maternal arms, so that, forming a boat for you, you may be sure to live in the sea of the Divine Will. Greater grace I could not give you. O please! I beg you, make your Mama content! Come to live in this Kingdom so holy! And when you see that your will would want to have some act of life, come and take refuge in the safe boat of my arms, saying to Me: “My Mama, my will wants to betray me, and I deliver it to You, that you ! may put the Divine Will in its place.”

Oh, how happy I will be if I am able to say: “My child is all Mine, because she lives of Divine Will.” And I will make the Holy Spirit descend into your soul, that He may burn away from you all that is human; and by His refreshing breath, He may rule over you and confirm you in the Divine Will.

The soul:

Divine Teacher, today your little child feels her heart swollen, to the point of pouring myself out in crying, and wetting your maternal hands with my tears. A veil of sadness invades me, and I fear that I will not profit from your many teachings and from your many more than maternal cares. My Mama, help me, fortify my weakness; put to flight my fears; and I, abandoning myself in your arms, will be certain to live fully of the Divine Will.

Little Sacrifice:

Today, to honor Me, you will recite seven Glory Be’s in honor of the Holy Spirit, praying to Me that His prodigies may be renewed over the whole holy Church.

Ejaculatory Prayer:

Celestial Mama, pour fire and flames into my heart, that they may consume me, and burn away all that is not Will of God.

December 22, 1899
How God draws us to love Him in three ways, and how He manifests Himself to the soul in three ways.

This morning my adorable Jesus was not coming.  After much waiting and waiting He made Himself just barely seen several times, like a lightning that flashes by.  But I seemed to see a light rather than Jesus, and in this light, a voice which, the first time it came, said:  “I draw you to love Me in three ways:  by dint of benefits, by dint of sympathies, and by dint of persuasions.”

Who can say how many things I comprehended in these three words?  It seemed to me that in order to attract my love and also that of the other creatures, blessed Jesus makes benefits rain down for our good, and in seeing that this rain of benefits does not reach the point of gaining our love, He reaches the point of rendering Himself sympathetic.  And what is this sympathy?  It is His pains suffered for love of us, to the point of dying, deluging blood upon a cross, where He rendered Himself so sympathetic as to enamor of Himself His very executioners and His fiercest enemies.  Even more, in order to attract us more and render our love stronger and more stable, He left us the light of His mo! st holy examples, united to His celestial doctrine, which, like light, dispel for us the darkness of this life and lead us to eternal salvation.

The second time it came, it said to me:  “I manifest Myself to the soul in three different ways:  by power, by news and by love.  The power is the Father, the news is the Word, the love is the Holy Spirit.”  Oh, how many more things I comprehended!  But too little is that which I am able to manifest.  It seemed to me that God manifests Himself to the soul, by power, in the whole of creation; from the first to the last being is the omnipotence of God manifested.  The heavens, ! the stars and all the other beings speak to us, though in a mute language, of a Supreme Being, of an Uncreated Being, of His omnipotence.  In fact, the most learned man, with all of his science, cannot arrive at creating the most wretched mosquito, and this says that there must be a most powerful uncreated Being who created everything, and gives life and preservation to all beings.  Oh, how the whole universe, in clear notes and with indelible characters, speaks to us of God and of His omnipotence!  Therefore, one who does not see Him is voluntarily blind!  By news:  it seemed to me that blessed Jesus, in descending from Heaven, came upon earth in person to give us news of what is invisible to us; and in how many ways did He not manifest Himself?  I believe that everyone can comprehend the rest by himself, therefore I will not go on speaking.

May 17, 1925 

Now, I continue by saying that my sweet Jesus told me: “My daughter, to all you have said on fusing yourself in my Will, another application must be added – that of fusing yourself in the order of grace, in all that the Sanctifier – the Holy Spirit – has done and will do to those who are to be sanctified. Furthermore, while We – the Three Divine Persons – remain always united in working, if Creation is related to the Father, and Redemption to the Son – the “Fiat Voluntas Tua” was attributed to the Holy Spirit. And it i! s exactly in the “Fiat Voluntas Tua” that the Divine Spirit will display His Work. You do it when, in coming before the Supreme Majesty, you say: ‘I come to give love in return for everything which the Sanctifier does to those who are to be sanctified. I come to enter into the order of grace, to give You glory and return of love, as if all had become Saints, and to repair You for all the oppositions and lack of correspondence to grace…”; and as much as you can, in Our Will you search for the acts of grace of the Spirit Sanctifier, in order to make your own – His sorrow, His secret moans, His anguishing sighs in the depth of the hearts, on seeing Himself unwelcome. And since the first act He does is to bring our Will as the complete act of their sanctification, on seeing Himself rejected, He moans with inexpressible moans. And in your childlike simplicity, you say to Him: ‘Spirit Sanctifier, hurry, I implore You, I beg You, let everyone know your Will, so that, in knowing It, they may love It and welcome your prime act of their complete sanctification – which is your Holy Will!’ My daughter, We – the Three Divine Persons – are inseparable and distinct, and in this way do We want to manifest to the human generations Our Works for them: while remaining united within Ourselves, each One of Us wants to manifest individually His Love and His Work for the creatures.”

Chaplet of the Holy Spirit

Day by day, little byimage315 little, expanded and enriched in the light of the Truths contained in the Volumes of Luisa, it has become a wonderful source of meditation and a “navette” which guides through and around the mysteries of the Third Fiat (the “rounds of Sanctification”).  But before starting the “trip”, as Jesus says in Volume 17, we are called to fuse ourselves in His Will (like Jesus taught Luisa, part by part—first our intellect, memory and will, then our senses, our breathing, our heartbeat, our motion and all of our being) and enter the “Order of Grace”—that is, the immense, incalculable, supernatural field of Action of the Holy Spirit.

And so, we can travel through the mysteries…in the sphere of Grace, offering glory, love and adoration to God the Holy Spirit, for all and in the hearts of all…

Come, Holy Spirit, enlighten my mind!
Come, inflame my heart!

  1. Take your beads (the Blessed Virgin’s Rosary) and recite the “Apostles’ Creed.”
  2. After the Creed, very slowly and devoutly, the “Glory Be to the Father.”
  3. Then say the “Our Father.”
  4. Now, very fervently, say this ejaculation: “Father, send us the promised Paraclete, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.”
  5. Now, on each bead, instead of the Hail Mary, say with a burning heart: “Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your love!”
  6. After the tenth bead, recite the following official prayer:  “Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created, and You shall renew the face of the earth.

    “Oh God Who did instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us by the same Spirit to be truly  wise and evermore to rejoice in His consolations, through Christ our Lord.  Amen.”

  1. Then recite the second decade and all the others in the same way as explained (beginning at 3): “Our Father”.
  2. After the seventh and last decade, recite the “Hail, Holy Queen”, in honor of the Blessed Virgin, our Heavenly Queen, who presided in the Cenacle on the Great Sunday of Pentecost.

A few short reflections may be made on ! seven glorious mysteries relating to seven wonderful operations of the Paraclete.  These meditations should be made briefly, between every ten beads.

1st Mystery:  Let us honor the Holy Spirit and adore Him Who is love substantial, proceeding from the Father and the Son, and uniting Them in an infinite and eternal charity.

In all the interior acts of the Holy Trinity (acts “ad intra”) as the Spirit proceeds continually and perpetually from the Father and the Son in perfect unity of Love and Will, let us ask Him to make us one with the Them as They are One

2nd Mystery:  Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him in the Immaculate Conception of Mary, sanctifying her, from the first moment with plenitude of grace.

We honor the Holy Spirit in the act of the Immaculate Conception of Our Celestial Mother, conceived within immense oceans of Sanctity, Beauty, Love, Wisdom, …and all of the Divine qualities, so that Her little seed might remain intact and immaculate.  These oceans of Divine qualities in which, through the Spirit, Mary was conceived, are still in Her power—and much more…  They were continuously expanded by Her acts in the Divine Will, and now She ardently desires to share them with us.  And we pray to be inundated by them to be renewed and transformed in the Life of the Divine Will

3rd Mystery:  Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him in the Incarnation of the Spirit and adore Him in the Incarnation of the Word, the Son of God, by His Divine Nature, and the Son of the Virgin by the flesh.

Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit in the Mystery of the Incarnation of the Word, conceived not within seas of Grace and Divine qualities which emanate from the Spirit, but within the Source Itself of those seas—God.  In Him we were conceived and through Him we pray to be reborn to New Life, here on earth—Life in the Divine Will

4th Mystery:  Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him giving birth to the Church on the glorious day of Pentecost in the Cenacle.

In the Mystery of the Pentecost, we ask Him to renew this prodigy today, through Mary, in each creature, that we may become true apostles of His Holy Will

5th Mystery:  Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him dwelling within the Church and assisting Her faithfully according to the Divine promise, even to the consummation of the world.

Let us honor the continuous action of the Spirit of guidance of the Church of Christ, from the first little seeds in the Upper Room through growth, persecutions, expansions, tribulations, …even through the great apostasy, in order to reach purification and the final triumph

6th Mystery:  Let us honor the wonderful operation of the Holy Spirit creating within the Church that other Christ, the priest, and conferring the plenitude of the priesthood on the Bishops.

In the ministry of Priesthood and in all the Sacraments, we unite our will to His to redo, repair and offer each one of them in His Divine Will

7th Mystery:  Let us honor the operation of the Holy Spirit and adore Him in the heroic virtue of the saints in the Church, that hidden and marvelous work of the “Adorable Sanctifier”.

We honor the Holy Spirit in all graces of sanctification—the prime act which the Holy Spirit brings to each soul for her sanctification (Vol 17):  the Will of God—in all the saints, and in the Great Gift which He desires to bestow now:  the Will of God as Life operating in us.  And so we can open the doors of every heart, accept the gifts of the Spirit in each one, repair for all the rejections on the part of creatures, which cause His “unspeakable moans” (Vol 17).  We ask for all that each one needs…for some conversion, for some repentance, for some mercy, for some consolation, for some healing, for some reconciliation,… and we implore Him to dispose us and each creature the Greatest Gift of the Divine Will

May 13, 2019 – Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima

May 13, 2019
Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima
102th Anniversary of the 1st of 6 Apparitions

In honor of the May 13 Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima to the children:

“Sing Praise, and Rejoice, O Daughter of Sion;
for Behold I Come, and I will Dwell in the Midst of Thee: said the Lord.”
(Zach 2:10)

V34-12.8.36 – How in Her Conception, the Queen of Heaven was Conceived in the Merits, in the Life, in the Love and sufferings, of the future Redeemer, in order for the Divine Word to then be Conceived in Her so as to come to save the creatures.

My poor mind, immersing itself in the Divine Fiat, found in Act the Conception of the Immaculate Queen. He was All in Feast and Called everyone around Himself, Angels, Saints, in order to make seen the Unheard-of Prodigy, the Graces, the Love with which He Called this Sublime Creature from nothing, such that everyone would know and praise Her as their Queen and Mother of All.

But while I remained surprised, and I would have remained there who knows how long if my Sweet Jesus had not Called me by telling me: “I want to Honor My Celestial Mother. I want to Narrate the Story of Her Immaculate Conception. Only I can Speak of it, being Author of so Great a Prodigy. Now, My daughter, the First Act of this Conception was one Fiat of Ours, Pronounced with such Solemnity and with such Fullness of Grace, as to Enclose everything and everyone. We Centralized Everything in this Conception of the Virgin. In Our Divine Fiat, in which past and future do not exist, the Incarnation of the Word was held Present, and It made Her Conceived and Incarnated in the same Incarnation of Me, future Redeemer. My Blood that was in Act as if I Myself were Shedding it, continually Sprinkled Her, Embellished Her, Confirmed Her, and Fortified Her in a Divine Way.

“But it was not enough for My Love. All Her Acts, Words, and Steps, were first Conceived in My Acts, Words, and Steps, and then they had Life. My Humanity was the Refuge, the Hiding Place, the Embodiment of this Celestial Creature, such that if She Loved Us, Her Love was Incarnated and Conceived in My Love. And O! how She Loved Us. Her Love Enclosed everything and everyone. I can say that She Loved as a God Knows how to Love. She had Our same Follies of Love for Us and for all creatures, and that Loving one time, She Loves, She Always Loves, without ever stopping. Her prayer was Conceived in My Prayer and therefore it had an Immense Value, a Power over Our Supreme Being—and who could deny Her anything? Her sufferings, Her Sorrows, Her Martyrdoms, that were so many, were first Conceived in My Humanity, and then She felt in Herself the Life of the Sufferings and of the excruciating Martyrdoms, all Animated by Divine Strength.

Therefore one can say She was Conceived in Me. From Me Her Life went forth. Everything that I did and Suffered lined up around this Holy Creature in order to Court Her and continuously Pour Myself over Her, and be able to tell Her: ‘You are the Life of My Life, You are All Beautiful, You are the First Redeemed, My Divine Fiat has Molded You, It has Breathed on You, and It has made You be Conceived in My Works, in My Humanity Itself.’

“Now, My daughter, Conceiving this Celestial Creature in the Incarnate Word, was done by Us with Highest Wisdom, with Unreachable Power, with Inexhaustible Love, and with Decorum that Befits Our Works. I, Word of the Father, having to Descend from Heaven in order to Incarnate Myself in the Womb of a Virgin, just virginity and having made Her exempt from the stain of original sin was not sufficient for the Sanctity of My Divinity, therefore it was necessary for Our Love and for Our Sanctity that this Virgin first would be Conceived in Me with all those Prerogatives, Virtues, and Beauties that the Life of the Incarnate Word Must Possess, and then, therefore, I could be Conceived in the One who had been Conceived in Me.” And I Found in Her My Heaven, the Sanctity of My Life, My Own Blood that had Generated Her and Watered Her so many times. I found My Own Will, that Communicating Its Divine Fecundity to Her, Formed the Life of Her and the Son of God. My Divine Fiat, in order to make Her Worthy of being able to Conceive Me, held Her Invested and Under Its Continuous Empire that Possesses All Acts as if they were One Single Act. In order to give Her Everything, It called into Act My Foreseen Merits, My Whole Life, and It Continuously Poured it within Her Beautiful Soul.

“Therefore I Alone can tell the True Story of the Immaculate Conception and of Her Whole Life, because I Conceived Her in Me and I AM Aware of Everything. And if the Holy Church speaks about the Celestial Queen, they can say only the first letters of the alphabet about Her Sanctity, Greatness, and Gifts with which She was Enriched. If you knew the Contentment that I feel when I speak about My Celestial Mother, who knows how many demands you would make Me in order to give Me the Joy of letting Me Speak about the One Whom I Love So Much, and Who has Loved Me.”

From the Queen of Heaven in the Kingdom of the Divine Will

Day Thirteen – (…) My child, courage, do not fear; your Mama is all for you, and today I was waiting for you so that My Heroism and My Triumph in the Sacrifice may Infuse in you strength and courage, that I may see my child triumphant in her pains, with the heroism of bearing them with love and in order to do the Divine Will.

Now, my child, listen to Me:  I had just turned three years old when my parents made known to Me that they wanted to consecrate Me to the Lord in the Temple.  My Heart Rejoiced in hearing this – that is, Consecrating Myself and spending my years in the house of God.  But beneath my Joy there was a Sorrow – a privation of the dearest persons one can have on earth, which were My dear parents.  I was little, I needed their maternal cares; I was depriving Myself of the presence of two great saints.  Moreover, I saw that as the day approached on which they were to deprive themselves of Me, who rendered their lives full of joy and of happiness, they felt such bitterness as to feel themselves dying.  But, though suffering, they were disposed to make the heroic act of taking Me to the Lord.

My parents loved Me in the order of God, and considered Me a great gift, given to them by the Lord; and this gave them the strength to make the painful sacrifice.  Therefore, My child, if you want to have invincible strength to suffer the hardest pains, let all your things be in the order of God, and hold them as precious gifts given to you by the Lord.

Now, You Must Know that I Prepared Myself with Courage for My Departure for the Temple, because, as I Delivered My human will to the Divine Being and the Supreme Fiat Took Possession of My Whole Being, I Acquired All Virtues as My Own Nature.  I was Dominator of Myself; All Virtues were in Me like many noble princesses, and according to the circumstances of My Life, they promptly showed themselves, to do their Office without any resistance.  In vain would they have called Me Queen, had I not Possessed the Virtue of Being Queen over Myself.  Therefore, I had in My Dominion Perfect Charity, Invincible Patience, Enrapturing Sweetness, Profound Humility, and the Whole Endowment of the other Virtues.  The Divine Will Rendered My Little Earth of My Humanity Fortunate, Always Flowery, and without the thorns of vices.

Do you see then, dear child, what it means to Live of Divine Will?  Its Light, Its Sanctity and Power Convert All Virtues into one’s nature; nor does It Lower Itself to Reign in a soul where there is a rebellious nature – no, no.  It is Sanctity, and It wants the nature in which It Must Reign to be ordered and holy.  Therefore, by the Sacrifice of going to the Temple, it was Conquests that I made; and over this Sacrifice, the Triumph of a Divine Will was Formed in Me.  And these Triumphs brought into Me New Seas of Grace, of Sanctity and of Light – to the extent of feeling Happy in My Pains, in order to be able to Conquer New Triumphs.

Now, my child, place your hand upon your heart, and tell your Mama:  do you feel your nature changed into Virtue?  Or, do you feel the thorns of impatience, the noxious herbs of agitations, the bad humors of affections which are not holy?  Listen – let your Mama Mary do it; place your human will into My Hands, determined in not wanting it anymore, and I shall make you be Possessed by the Divine Will, which will Banish everything from you; and what you have not done in many years, you shall do in one day, which shall be the Beginning of True Life, of Happiness, and of True Sanctity.

Abba Father,
In the Name of Jesus,
in the Unity, Power and Love of the Holy Spirit,
Under the Mantle of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
with All the Angels and Saints,
through the intercession
of the little daughter of the Divine Will,
Luisa Piccarreta,

of Reparation and Consecration
of Russia, the United States and All Nations,
with All peoples, past, present and future,

of Our Lady of Fatima.

On behalf of all mankind we beg You,
Come Holy Spirit!
May this Consecration hasten the

Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
and the Eucharistic Reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

May the Coming of the Kingdom,

Our Heavenly Father,
“May Your Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”
be accomplished and completed
in Your Most Holy Divine Will.
WE BELIEVE, WE RECEIVE!

Fiat! Amen!
