The Luminous Mysteries
[Jesus says:] “My daughter, the baptism at birth is by water, therefore it has the virtue of purifying, but not of removing tendencies and passions. On the other hand, the baptism of victim is baptism by fire, therefore it has not only the virtue of purifying, but of consuming any passion and evil tendency. Even more, I Myself baptize the soul, bit by bit: My thought baptizes the thought of the soul; My heartbeat baptizes her heartbeat; My desire her desire, and so on. However, this baptism is carried out between Myself and the soul, according to whether she gives herself to Me without ever taking back what she has given Me….” (March 13, 1912 Volume 11)
“…While my mind was immersed in the Divine Fiat, my sweet Jesus, visiting my little soul, with inexpressible goodness told me: “My blessed daughter of My Will, how many wonders My Will can make in the creature, as long as she gives It the first place and all the freedom to operate. My Will takes the will, the word, the act that the creature wants to do, It makes it part of Itself, It covers it with Its creative virtue, pronounces Its Fiat over it, and forms as many lives for as many existing creatures. See, you were asking in My Will for the baptism of all newborn babies that will come out to the light of the day, and then, for Its Life to reign in them. My Will did not hesitate one instant; immediately It pronounced Its Fiat and formed as many Lives of Itself for as many newborn babies coming out to the light-baptizing them, as you wanted, with Its first light, and then giving Its Life to each one of them. And if these newborn babies, either for lack correspondence or for lack of knowledge, will not possess Our Life, this Life still remains for Us, and We will have many Divine Lives which love Us, glorify Us, bless Us, as We love within Ourselves. These Divine Lives are Our greatest glory, but they do not put aside the creature who gave Our Divine Fiat the occasion to form so many of Our Lives for as many newborn babies as were coming out to the light; on the contrary, they keep her hidden within themselves to let her love as they love, and let her do what they do. Nor do they put the newborn babies aside; on the contrary, they are all eyes over them, they watch them, they defend them so as to be able to reign in their souls….”(April 12, 1938 Volume 36)
2nd The Self-Manifestation of Jesus at the Wedding of Cana (To Jesus through Mary)
[Our Celestial Mother says:] “My dearest child, My Heart is swollen with love, and I felt the need to tell you the reason why, together with My Son, I wanted to be present at this wedding of Cana. Do you think it was because of a simple ceremony? No, child, there are profound mysteries. Pay attention to Me, and I will tell you new things: how My love of Mother was displayed in an incredible manner, and how the love of My Son gave true signs of paternity and royalty for the creatures.
“Now listen to Me. My Son had come back from the desert, and was preparing Himself for His public life; but first He wanted to be present at this wedding, and therefore He allowed Himself to be invited. We went there, not to celebrate, but to work great things for the human generations. My Son took the place of Father and King in the families, and I took the place of Mother and Queen. With Our presence We renewed the sanctity, the beauty, the order of the marriage formed by God in the Garden of Eden – that of Adam and Eve – married by the Supreme Being in order to populate the earth, and to multiply and increase the future generations. Marriage is the substance from which arises the life of the generations; it can be called the trunk from which the earth is populated. The priests, the religious, are the branches; but if it were not for the trunk, not even the branches would have life. Therefore, through sin, by withdrawing from the Divine Will, Adam and Eve caused the family to lose its sanctity, beauty and order. And I, your Mama, the new innocent Eve, together with My Son, went to reorder that which God did in Eden; I constituted Myself Queen of families, and impetrated the grace that the Divine Fiat might reign in them, that I might have families which would belong to Me, holding the place of Queen in their midst.
“But this is not all, My child. Our love was burning, and We wanted to make known to them how much We loved them, and to give them the most sublime of lessons. And here is how: at the height of the lunch, wine lacked, and My Heart of mother felt consumed with love, wanting to give help. Knowing that My Son can do anything, with supplicating accents, but certain that He would listen to Me, I say to Him: ‘My Son, the spouses have no more wine.’ And He answers Me: ‘My hour to do miracles has not yet come.’ And knowing that He certainly would not deny what His Mama asked of Him, I said to those who were serving the table: ‘Do what My Son tells you, and you will have what you want; even more, you will receive in addition, and in superabundance.’
“My child, in these few words I gave a lesson, the most useful, necessary and sublime for the creature. I spoke with the heart of a mother and I said: My children, do you want to be holy? Do the Will of My Son. Do not move from what He tells you, and you will have His likeness, His sanctity in your power. Do you want all evils to cease? Do whatever My Son tells you. Do you want any grace, even difficult? Do whatever He tells you and wants. Do you also want the necessary things of natural life? Do whatever My Son tells you. Because in His words, in everything He tells you and wants, He encloses such power that, as He speaks, His word contains what you ask for, and makes the graces you desire arise within your souls. How many see themselves as full of passions, weak, afflicted, unfortunate and miserable; yet, they pray and pray, but because they do not do what My Son asks, they obtain nothing; Heaven seems to be closed for them. This is a sorrow for your Mama, because I see that while they pray, they move away from the source in which all goods reside – the Will of My Son.
“Now, those who were serving did precisely what My Son said to them – that is: “Fill the jars with water and bring them to the table.” My dear Jesus blessed that water and it turned into delicious wine. Oh, a thousand times blessed, the one who does what He says and wants! With this, My Son gave Me the greatest honor, He constituted Me Queen of miracles; this is why He wanted My union and My prayer in doing His first miracle. He loved Me too much-so much that He wanted to give Me first place as Queen in miracles also. And with facts, not with words, He said: ‘If you want graces and miracles, come to My Mother; I will never deny anything She wants.’
“In addition to this, My child, with My presence at this wedding, I looked at the future centuries. I saw the Kingdom of the Divine Will upon earth; I looked at families, and I pleaded for them to symbolize the love of the Sacrosanct Trinity, so that Its Kingdom might be in full force. With My rights of Mother and Queen, I took to heart Its regime; and since I possessed the source of it, I placed at the creatures’ disposal all the graces, the helps and the sanctity which are needed to live in a Kingdom so holy. So I keep repeating: ‘Do whatever My Son tells you.’
“My child, listen to Me: look for nothing else, if you want to have everything in your power, and give Me the contentment of being able to make of you My true child, and child of the Divine Will. Then will I take on the commitment of forming the marriage between you and the Fiat; and acting as your true Mother, I will bind the marriage by giving you the very life of My Son as dowry, and My maternity and all My virtues as gift”. (“The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will” – Appendix 6)
3rd Jesus’ Proclamation of the Kingdom of God (True Repentance and Trust in God)
[Jesus says:] “…You must know that, in coming upon earth, I came to manifest My Celestial doctrine, to make known My Humanity, My Fatherland, and the order which the creature had to maintain in order to reach Heaven — in a word, the Gospel. But I said almost nothing or very little about My Will. I almost passed over It, only making them understand that the thing which I cared the most about was the Will of My Father. I said almost nothing about Its qualities, about Its height and greatness, and about the great goods which the creature receives by living in My Volition, because the creature was too much of an infant in Celestial things, and would have understood nothing. I just taught her to pray: ‘Fiat Voluntas Tua, sicut in coelo et in terra’, so that she might dispose herself to know this Will of Mine in order to love It, to do It, and therefore receive the gifts It contains. Now, that which I was to do at that time — the teachings about My Will which I was to give to all — I have given to you. So, making them known is nothing but making up for what I Myself was to do while on earth as the fulfillment of My Coming. Don’t you want Me, then, to fulfill the purpose of My coming upon earth? Therefore, let Me do; I will watch over everything and dispose everything-and you, follow Me and be at peace.” (June 2, 1921 Volume 13)
“…The importance of the Kingdom of the Supreme Fiat is immense, and I love It so much, that I am doing more than a new Creation and Redemption. In fact, in Creation My omnipotent Fiat was pronounced only six times in order to dispose It to come out fully ordered. In Redemption I spoke, but since I did not speak about the Kingdom of My Will which contains infinite knowledges and immense goods, I did not have a very extensive subject with many words to say, because everything I taught was of limited nature, and a few words were enough to make it known. But in order to make My Will known, it takes much, My daughter. Its history is extremely long-it encloses an eternity with no beginning and no end; therefore, as much as I speak, I have always something to say. This is why I am saying – oh, how much more! Being more important than anything, It contains more knowledges, more light, more greatness, more prodigies; therefore, more words are necessary. More so, since the more I make known, the more I expand the boundaries of My Kingdom to be given to the children who will possess It. Therefore, everything I manifest about My Will is a new creation which I make in My Kingdom, to be enjoyed and possessed by those who will have the good of knowing It. And so, great attention is required on your part in manifesting them.” (September 17, 1926 Volume 20)
4th Jesus’ Transfiguration (Desiring Holiness)
[Jesus says:] “…It is My usual way to do minor things first, as preparation for greater ones-these, being the crowning of the minor things…. I maintained this order also in Redemption. My birth was without glamour, rather, it was neglected; My childhood was without splendor of great things before men; My life in Nazareth was so hidden that I lived as if ignored by all; I adapted Myself to do the smallest and most common things of human life. During My public life there were a few great things, but still-who knew My Divinity? Nobody, not even all of the Apostles. I passed through the crowds like any other man, so much so, that anyone could approach Me, talk to Me, and as happened, even despise Me.” And I, interrupting Jesus’ speaking, said: “Jesus, my Love, how happy those times were, and even happier those people who, just by wanting it, could come close to You, talk to You, and be with You!” And Jesus: “Ah! My daughter, only My Will brings true happiness. It alone encloses all goods within the soul, and making Itself crown around the soul, constitutes her queen of true happiness. Only these souls will be the queens of My throne, because they are a birth from My Will….” (April 15, 1919 Volume 12)
“…My love wants to pour itself out; it wants to make known the excesses which My Divinity operated in My Humanity for the creatures-excesses which greatly surpass the excesses that My Humanity operated externally. This is also why I often speak to you about living in My Will, which I have not manifested to anyone until now. At the most, they have known the shadow of My Will, the grace and the sweetness of doing It. But to penetrate inside of It, to embrace immensity, to be multiplied with Me and-even while being on earth-penetrate everywhere, both into Heaven and into the hearts, laying down the human ways and acting in divine ways-this is not yet known; so much so that not to a few will this appear strange, and those who do not keep their minds opened to the light of the Truth will not understand a thing. But little by little I will make My way, manifesting now one truth, now another, about this living in My Will, so that they will end up understanding.
Now, the first link which connected the true living in My Will was My Humanity. My Humanity, identified with My Divinity, swam in the Eternal Volition, and kept tracing all the acts of creatures in order to make them Its own, to give to the Father a divine glory on the part of creatures, and to bring the value, the love, the kiss of the Eternal Volition to all the acts of creatures. In this sphere of the Eternal Volition, I could see all the acts of creatures-those which could be done and were not done, and also the good acts done badly-and I did those which had not been done, and redid those done badly. Now, these acts which were not done, except by Me alone, are all suspended in My Will, and I await the creatures to come to live in My Volition, and repeat in My Will that which I did. This is why I chose you as the second link of connection with My Humanity, a link which becomes one with mine, as you live in My Volition and repeat My own acts. Otherwise, on this side My love would remain without its outpouring, without glory from the creatures for all that My Divinity operated within My Humanity, and without the perfect purpose of Creation, which must be enclosed and perfected in My Will. It would be as if I had shed all My Blood and suffered so much, and nobody had known it. Who would have loved Me? Which heart would have been shaken? No one; and therefore in no one would I have had My fruits-the glory of Redemption.”
Interrupting Jesus’ speaking, I said: “My Love, if there is so much good in this living in the Divine Will, why did You not manifest it before?” And He: “My daughter, first I had to make known what My Humanity did and suffered externally, to be able to dispose souls to knowing what My Divinity did inside. The creature is incapable of understanding My work all together; therefore I keep manifesting Myself little by little. Then, from your link of connection with Me, the links of other souls will be connected, and I will have a cohort of souls who, living in My Volition, will redo all the acts of the creatures. I will receive the glory of the many suspended acts done only by Me, also from the creatures-and these, from all classes: virgins, priests, lay people, according to their office. They will no longer operate humanly; but rather, as they penetrate into My Will, their acts will multiply for all in a way which is fully divine. I will receive from creatures the divine glory of many Sacraments administered and received in a human way, of others which have been profaned, of others sullied with interest, and of many good works in which I remain more dishonored than honored. I yearn so much for this time; and you, pray and yearn for it together with Me, and do not move your link of connection with Mine, but start-as the first one.” (January 29, 1919 Volume 12)
5th Jesus’ Institution of the Holy Eucharist (Love of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament)
I was feeling all absorbed in the Most Holy Will of God, and blessed Jesus made present to me, as though in act, all the acts of His Life on earth. And since I had received Him sacramentally in my poor heart, He let me see, as though in act in His Most Holy Will, the moment in which my sweet Jesus, in instituting the Most Holy Sacrament, communicated Himself. How many wonders, how many prodigies, how many excesses of love in this act of communicating Himself. My mind wandered amid so many divine prodigies, and my always lovable Jesus told me: “Beloved daughter of My Supreme Volition, My Will contains everything, It preserves all of the divine works as though in act, and It lets nothing escape It; and to one who lives in It, It wants to make known all the goods It contains. Therefore, I want to make known to you the reason for which I wanted to receive Myself when I instituted the Most Holy Sacrament.
The prodigy was great and incomprehensible to the human mind. For the creature to receive a Man and God, to enclose the infinite in a finite being, and to give to this infinite Being divine honors, decorum and a dwelling worthy of Him – this mystery was so abstruse and incomprehensible, that the Apostles themselves, while they easily believed in the Incarnation and in many other mysteries, remained troubled before this one, and their intellects were reluctant to believe. And it took My repeated saying for them to surrender. So, what to do? I, who instituted it, was to take care of everything, since, when the creature would receive Me, the Divinity was not to lack honors, divine decorum and a dwelling worthy of God. Therefore, My daughter, as I instituted the Most Holy Sacrament, My Eternal Will, united to My human will, made present to Me all the hosts which were to receive the sacramental consecration until the end of centuries. And I looked at them, one by one; I consumed them, and I saw My Sacramental Life palpitating in each host, yearning to give Itself to creatures. In the name of the whole human family, My Humanity took on the commitment for all, and provided a dwelling within Itself to each host; and My Divinity, which was inseparable from Me, surrounded each sacramental host with divine honors, praises and blessings, to give worthy decorum to My Majesty. So, each sacramental host was deposited in Me, and contains the dwelling of My Humanity and the cortege of the honors of My Divinity; otherwise, how could I descend into the creature? And it was only because of this that I tolerated sacrileges, coldness, irreverences, ingratitudes, since, in receiving Myself, I secured My own decorum, the honors and the dwelling which befitted My very Person. Had I not received Myself, I could not have descended into creatures, and they would have lacked the way, the door, the means to receive Me.
This is My usual way in all My works: I do them once in order to give life to all the other times in which they are repeated, uniting them to the first act as if they were one single act. So, the power, the immensity, the all-seeingness of My Will made Me embrace all centuries; It made present to Me the communicants and all sacramental hosts; and I received Myself as many times, so that, through Myself, I might pass into each creature. Who has ever thought of so much love of mine? That in order to descend into the hearts of creatures, I was to receive Myself so as to secure the divine rights and be able to give them, not only Myself, but the very acts I did in receiving Myself, to dispose them and almost to give them the right to receive Me?”
I remained surprised, and as if I wanted to doubt, and Jesus added: “Why do you doubt? Is this not perhaps to operate as God? And this one single act of forming as many acts for as many as want to enjoy it, while it remains one single act-was it not the same for the act of the Incarnation, of My Life and of My Passion? I incarnated Myself only once, one was My Life, one My Passion; yet, this Incarnation, Life and Passion is for all and for each one, as if it were for one alone. So, they are still as though in act, and for each one, as if I were now incarnating Myself and now suffering My Passion. If it were not so, I would not be operating as God, but as creature, who, not containing a divine power, cannot let herself be possessed by all, or give herself to all.
Now, My daughter, I want to tell you of another excess of My love. One who does My Will and lives in It, comes to embrace the works of My Humanity, because I greatly yearn that the creature become similar to Me. And since My Will and hers are one, My Will takes pleasure in her, and, amusing Itself, It places all the good I contain into the creature, and I form in her the deposit of the very sacramental hosts. My Will, which she contains, lends her and surrounds her with divine decorum, homages and honors; and I entrust everything to her, because I am certain to keep My works in a safe place, since My Will becomes actor, spectator and custodian of all My goods, of My works and of My very Life.” (June 18, 1923 Volume 15)
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. (“The Hours of the Passion” – 4thHour, from Reflections and Practices)
