‘Our works are of no VALUE if they be not United to the MERITS of Jesus Christ.’ ~St. Teresa of Ávila~

‘Our works are of no VALUE if they be not United to the MERITS of Jesus Christ.’

~ St. Teresa of Ávila ~

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

V11 – 8.14.12 – Now, one day I was working and I thought to myself: ‘How is it possible that Jesus works in me while I Luisa1work? Does He really want to do this work?’ And Jesus: “Yes I do. My fingers are in yours and they work. My daughter, when I was on earth, didn’t My Hands lower themselves to work the wood, hammer the nails, and help My foster Father Joseph in the smithing work? While I was doing that, with those very hands and with those fingers, I created souls and called other souls to the other life; I Divinized all human actions; I sanctified them, giving a Divine MERIT to each one of them. In the movements of My Fingers I called in sequence all the movements of your fingers and those of others; and if I saw that they were doing them for Me, or because I wanted to act within them, I continued My life of Nazareth in them, and I felt cheered by them for the sacrifices and the humiliations of My hidden Life, giving them the MERIT of My Own Life.

Daughter, the hidden Life that I conducted in Nazareth is not taken into account by men, when in fact, after the Passion, nothing could benefit them more. By lowering Myself to all those little actions and those acts which men exercise during their daily life, such as eating, sleeping, drinking, working, starting the fire, sweeping, etc. – all acts which no one can do without – I made flow inside their souls a tiny Divine Coin of Incalculable Price. Therefore, if My Passion Redeemed them, My hidden Life provided each human action, even the most insignificant one, with Divine MERIT and with Infinite VALUE.

Do you see? As you work – working because I Want to work – My Fingers flow within yours, and as I work in you with My creative hands, in this very instant, how many am I giving to the light of this world? How many others am I calling? How many others do I sanctify, correct, chastise, etc.? Now, you are with Me creating, calling, correcting and so forth; therefore, just as you are not alone, neither am I alone in My work. Could I ever give you greater honor?”

V13 – 1.20.22 – “Wanting to have one’s own MERITS is of servants, of slaves – not of children. What belongs to the father, belongs to his children. Besides, what are all the MERITS that you could acquire compared to one single act of My Will? All MERITS have their own little VALUE, weight and measure; but who could ever measure one single act of My Will? No one – no one. And then, what are your MERITS compared to Mine? In My Will you will find them all, and I make of you the owner. Aren’t you happy?”

V16 – 5.19.24 – “My daughter, My Will is Eternal, and only for one who Lives in It, Embracing Eternity – all her acts, from the tiniest to the greatest, being Animated by an Eternal Will, Acquire the VALUE, the MERIT, the Shape of Divine and Eternal Acts. The Divine Will empties those acts of all that is human, and filling them with Its Will, Makes them Its Own and places on them the seal, Making of them as many Eternal and Divine Acts.”

V31 – 11.6.32 – “Now, one who works even good with her human will, as she finds herself passing her way in time, one can say that everything she does are temporary works, subject to a thousand miseries. They will always be human works of minimum VALUE, because she lacks the Gold Thread of the Light of My Will. On the other hand, one who works in It, will have the Gold Thread in her power, and not only this, but she will have her Creator Operating in her act; she will not have time, but Eternity in her power. Therefore there is only difference between the Divine Will and the human, there is no comparison that holds up between the One and the other. To Live in My Will is exactly this: It has the Prime and Operating Act in the creature. My Will acts as a teacher who wants to develop the theme that he has given to his student. He gives her the paper, he places the pen in her hand, he puts his hand over the same hand of the disciple and he develops the theme, the hand of the teacher and that of the student writing together.

            “Now, couldn’t one say that the teacher has been working, and has put in that theme his science, his beautiful writing in a way that no one can find a shadow of defect? And yet the student has not gone out of place, she has undergone the work of the teacher, she has let her hand be conducted without any resistance. On the contrary, she is happy in seeing the beautiful ideas, the precious concepts in which she feels enraptured. Now, couldn’t one say that the fortunate disciple possesses the VALUE and the MERIT of the work of her teacher? The same happens to one who Lives in My Will. The creature must undergo the Act that My Volition wants to make, It must not be put aside, and It must place the necessities befitting Its Divine Act. And Our Goodness is so much, that We make her Possessor of Our same Acts.”

V32 – 9.24.33 – “Look at Me, how I keep everything enclosed in Me, and this brings Me to Love him doubly in every act that he does. By Incarnating Myself in the Womb of the Immaculate Queen, I formed this Humanity of Mine, and I constituted Myself the Head of the human family in order to unite all creatures with Me, and make them My Members. Therefore everything that they do is Mine. In the Sanctuary of My Holy Humanity I enclosed everyone. I watch over the little good as well as the great, but do you know why? Passing through Me I give them the VALUE as if they were My Works, Prayers and Sacrifices. The Virtue of the Head descends into the members, makes a mixture of everything, and I give to them the VALUE of My MERITS, such that the creature finds himself in Me, and I as Head find Myself in them.”

V33 – 11.19.33 – “Daughter, so great is the act of disposing oneself to doing My Will, that My Life itself, My MERITS, form the paper, the characters, and your Jesus makes the signature in order to make it known and to give her free entrance. One can say that the whole of Heaven runs to the help of one who wants to do My Will. And I feel so much Love, that I take a place in the fortunate creature and I feel Loved by her with My own Will.

“…These acts done in My Will are centuries that enclose Incalculable MERITS and Goods, because there is the Divine Motor that moves them, which has so much speed that in the minutes it encloses the centuries. And it renders the creature so rich, Beautiful, and Holy, as to let Us boast before the whole Celestial Court, pointing her out as the Greatest Prodigy of Its Creative Art.”

V33 – 3.4.34 – “…The instants, the littlest Acts done in It, embrace centuries; and since they are Divine, they are invested with such Power that what one wants to do with them—everything he can do and everything he can obtain. The Divine Being remains bound in these Acts, because they are His Acts, and He must give them the VALUE that they MERIT. Besides this, you must know that the Acts done in My Will form the ways that must serve souls in order to let them enter into It, and they are so very necessary that if heroic souls do not first come forth to Live in It in order to form the principal ways of Its Kingdom, the generations, not finding the ways, will not know what to do in order to enter into My Divine Will.”

V34 – 7.12.37 – “Now, I want to tell you another consoling surprise. So much is Our Pleasure when the creature decides with immovable firmness to Live in Our Volition, that what We must do at the point of death, of Confirming her in the Good in which she finds herself, because you must know that everything that she has done in life—prayers, virtue, sufferings suffered, good works—these serve to form Our little Divine Life in her soul, not one Blessed enters into Heaven if she does not possess this Divine Life, according to the good that they have done, and if they have Loved Me and fulfilled My Will more, so they will have It, some lesser, some greater, because the True Happiness, the True Joys, must be possessed within. In fact, each one will have inside and outside of them their God, who will always give them New Joys, so much so that if souls, dying, are not filled up even to the brim with Love and with My Will, I Confirm them, yes, but they do not enter into Heaven. I send them to Purgatory to fill these voids of love and of My Divine Will by way of sufferings, of anxieties, and of longings. And when they are filled with everything, in a way that one sees in them that they are already completely Transformed into My Love and into My Will, then they take flight toward Heaven.

“Now, for one who does not want to do her will anymore but only Mine, We do not wait for that point. With an Irresistible Strength Our Love brings Us to anticipate the Confirmation of the Good, and to convert into nature Our Love and Our Will, so that she will feel that My Love, My Volition, is hers. She will feel My Life more than her own, but with the difference that of those who are Confirmed at the point of death, they will not grow anymore in good, their MERITS are finished. On the other hand, in these My Life will always grow, the MERITS will never end, rather, they will have the Divine MERITS. As they continue to admire and to Live of My Will, so they will know Me more, and I Love them more and increase their Glory. I can say that I run in her every act in order to give her My kiss, My Love, in order to Recognize her, that she is Mine, and give her the VALUE, the MERIT as if I were to have done it. Ah! you cannot understand what We feel for one who Lives in Our Volition, how We Love her. We want to make her content in everything, because in her We find the Purpose of Creation Realized and all the Glory that all things must give Us Centralized. And then, Our Completed Will is everything for Us.”

V36 – 11.26.38 – “…the pilgrim soul has not yet completed her day. If she wants to Live in Our Will she can make Prodigies of Grace and Light for the whole world, and Prodigies of Love for her Creator. Therefore, all Our Attention is on the traveling soul, because her work is still in process and is not yet finished. If she is disposed, We can do works never done before, so Beautiful as to Astonish Heaven and earth. Our Pain is Great when We find the traveling soul not disposed to letting Us perform Our Most Beautiful Works. How many of Our Works have been started and not finished, with others shattered at their peak moment. Only in Our Will and for those who Live in It, can We accomplish Our Works with Their Unreachable Beauty, since Our Will provides the adaptable materials to do anything We want. Outside of It, We cannot find sufficient Light, nor a rising Love, nor Divine Materials; We are forced to fold Our arms, because We just can’t move forward with any of those who don’t Live in Our Will!

“Furthermore, for the soul on her journey, We Circulate the Coin of MERIT. Our Divine Image is Coined on each of her acts Animated by Our Will. These Coins have Infinite VALUE, so whenever she wants, she has the Money to pay Me for anything she wants. Therefore, Our Concern and Interest is for the souls on their journey, because this is the time for Conquest, while there are no Conquests in Heaven, but only Joy and Happiness.”

Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help

FEAST OF OUR MOTHER OF PERPETUAL HELP

Missa “Gaudeámus ómnes”

White Vestmentsour-lady-perpetual-help-byzantine-icon-2052092

Today [June 27] is the Traditional Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help which can be said in place of the Feria Mass. In the thirteenth century, a beautiful picture of Our Lady holding the Child Jesus, with the Archangels Michael and Gabriel on either side of her, was painted in the East. In the fifteenth century, this picture was brought from the Island of Crete and was taken to Rome. It was placed in the Church of Saint Matthew in Rome. There, for three hundred years, pilgrims came to reverence and pray before this holy picture, because everyone loved its simplicity, its beauty and its truth. After the French Revolution, when the vicious Napoleon desecrated thirty Catholic Churches in Rome, this precious picture of Our Lady of Perpetual Help was hidden away, but it was rediscovered in 1862.

It was then placed in the Church of Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, founder of the Redemptorist Order, in Rome, where it is now kept. The purpose of this lovely picture is by way of simple and innocent symbol to teach us that

Our Lady is our help in all things, and our help at all times. Many Catholic churches in all countries are called by the name, Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

mary-and-luisaV34 – 5.20.36 – “So the Great Lady is all eye in order to look, all heart in order to Love, so as to HELP the one whom She sees in some way disposed, that they want to Live of Divine Will. Therefore in the difficulties, think that She is around you, She sustains you, She fortifies you, She takes your volition in Her Maternal Hands in order to make it receive the Life of the Supreme Fiat.”

V34 – 12.20.36 – “Now, My daughter, listen to another Prodigy of Our Fiat in this Celestial Creature, and how She Loved Us and rendered Her Maternity extendable to all creatures: In every Act that She did, if She Loved, Prayed, Adored, if She Suffered, everything, even the breath, the heartbeat, the step, being Our Fiat, were Triumphs and Victories that Our Supreme Being made in the Acts of the Virgin. The Celestial Lady Triumphed and Conquered in God, in every instant of Her Admirable and Prestigious Life. They were Triumphs and Victories between God and the Virgin. But this is nothing. Acting as True Mother She called all Her children, and She covered and hid all their acts in Hers, and She covered them with Her Triumphs and with Her Victories, giving all Her acts as Dowry, with all Her Victories and Triumphs. And then, with a Tenderness and Love as to break hearts and feel Ourselves Conquered, She told Us: ‘Adorable Majesty, look at them, they are all My children. My Victories and Triumphs are of My children, they are My Conquests that I give to them. And if the Mama has Conquered and Triumphed, the children have Conquered and Triumphed.’

“And so many Triumphs and Victories She did in God, for however many acts all creatures would have done, such that all can say: ‘I am provided with a Dowry by the Acts of My Queen Mama, and for Seal She has Invested them for me with Her Triumphs and Victories that She made with Her Creator.’ In fact, one who wants to make himself holy, finds the Dowry of his Celestial Mother and Her Triumphs and Victories in order to arrive at the greatest Sanctity. The weak one finds the Strength of the Sanctity of his Mama and Her Triumphs in order to be strong. The afflicted, the suffering one, finds the Gift of the sufferings of his Celestial Mother in order to obtain the Triumph, the Victory, of resignation. The sinner finds the Victory and the Triumph of pardon. In sum, everyone finds in this Sovereign Queen the Dowry, the support, the HELP for the state in which they find themselves. And O! how Beautiful it is. It is the most moving scene, enrapturing and enchanting, to see this Celestial Mother in every creature, that She acts as Mama. We feel that She Loves and prays in Her children. This is the Greatest Prodigy among Heaven and earth, Greater Good We could not give to the creatures.

PRAYERS TO OUR BLESSED MOTHER

FROM THE VIRGIN MARY IN THE KINGDOM OF THE DIVINE WILL

Our Lady of Perpetual Help“Celestial Mama, in the midst of many, I, who am the littlest, the neediest of your children, want to come up onto Your Maternal Lap, to bring You, not flowers and roses, but a Sun each day. But my Mama must HELP Her child, giving me Her Lessons of Heaven, to Teach me how to Form these Divine Suns, in order to give You the Most Beautiful Homage and the Most Pure Love. Dear Mama, You have Understood what Your child Wants: I Want You to Teach me How to Live of Divine Will. And I, transforming my acts and all of myself into Divine Will According to Your Teachings, will Bring to Your Lap each day, all of my acts Changed into Suns.”

“Holy Mama, HELP me; don’t You see how weak I am? Your Beautiful Lessons Move me to tears, and I cry over my great misfortune of having fallen many times into the maze of doing my own will, detaching myself from that of my Creator. O please! be my Mama, do not leave me to myself. With Your Power, Unite the Divine Will to mine; Enclose me in Your Maternal Heart, in which I will be sure never to do my wil.l”

“Beautiful Mama, HELP your child. You Yourself, Place me into the Sea of the Divine Will, and Cover me with the Waves of the Eternal Love, that I may see and hear nothing but Divine Will and Love.”

“Holy Mama, HELP your child; Make a Visit to my soul, and with Your Maternal Hands, snatch from me everything You find which is not Will of God. Burn away thorns and noxious herbs, and You Yourself, Call the Divine Will to Reign in my soul.”

“Holy Mama, if You HELP me and Keep me Sheltered under Your Mantle, Acting as my Celestial Sentry, I am Certain that I will convert all my pains into Will of God; and I will Follow You, step by step, along the Unending Ways of the Supreme Fiat, because I Know that Your Charming Love of Mother and Your Power will Win over my will, and You will Keep it in Your Power and Exchange it with the Divine Will. Therefore, my Mama, I Entrust myself to You, and I Abandon myself into Your Arms.”

“Divine Teacher (Mary), 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.”

“Divine Mama, Your Love Calls me Powerfully to You, because You Want to Let me Share in Your Joys and in Your Sorrows, to Enclose them in my heart as Pledge of Your Love and of the Love of little Baby Jesus, that I May Comprehend How Much You Have Loved me, and How Obliged I am to Imitate You, Keeping the Model of Your Life to Make a Perfect Copy of it. And You, Holy Mama, HELP me, that I may be able to Imitate You.”

“Holy Mama, I tremble in thinking of the abysses into which my will is capable of making me fall. Because of it, I can lose You, I can lose Jesus, and All the Celestial Goods. Mama, if You do not HELP me, if You do not Surround me with the Power of the Light of the Divine Will, I feel it is not possible for me to Live of Divine Will with Constancy. So I Place All my Hope in You, in You I Trust, from You I Hope for Everything. Amen.”

Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Sacred_Heart_Holy_CardFROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN
V11 – 6.15.16

MOST POWERFUL PRAYER OVER THE HEART OF JESUS

Then I felt the Queen Mama near me, and She told me: “My daughter, pray.” And I: ‘My Mama, let us pray together, for by myself I don’t know how to pray.’ And She added: “The Most Powerful Prayers over the Heart of My Son, and those which move Him the most, are for the creature to clothe herself with everything He Himself Did and Suffered, since He Gave Everything as Gift to the creature. Therefore, My daughter, surround your head with the Thorns of Jesus, bead your eyes with His Tears, impregnate your tongue with His Bitterness, clothe your soul with His Blood, adorn yourself with His Wounds, pierce your hands and feet with His Nails, and like another Christ present yourself before His Divine Majesty. This sight will move Him in such a way that He will not be able to deny anything to the soul who is clothed with His Own Insignia. But – oh! how little do creatures know how to make use of the Gifts which My Son gave them! These were My Prayers upon earth, and these are My Prayers in Heaven.” So, together we clothed ourselves with the Insignia of Jesus, and together we presented ourselves before the Divine Throne. This moved all; the Angels made way for us and remained as though surprised. I thanked Mama, and I found myself inside myself.

FROM THE TWENTY FOUR HOURS OF THE PASSION

OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST

Nineteenth Hour: O my Jesus, alas, how tortured is your poor Heart! How to comfort so much pain? I will diffuse myself in You; I will place my heart in Yours, my ardent desires in Yours, so that any evil desire may be destroyed.

I will diffuse my love in Yours, so that by means of your fire, the hearts of all creatures may be burned, and the profaned loves destroyed. Your most sacred Heart will be comforted, and from now on I promise You, O Jesus, always to remain nailed to this most loving Heart, with the nails of your desires, of your Love and of your Will.

Twentieth Hour: O my Jesus, I kiss your Most Sacred Heart, and I thank You for all You have suffered, desired and yearned for, for love of all and for each one in particular. I ask your forgiveness for the many evil desires, and for the affections and tendencies which are not good – forgiveness, O Jesus, for many who place your love after the love of creatures. And to give You all the glory that these have denied You, I offer You everything that your most adorable Heart has done and continues to do.

Twenty-Second Hour: O Jesus, I kiss your Most Sacred Heart, and I intend to enclose in It, with my soul, all the souls redeemed by You, so that all may be saved – no one excluded.

O Jesus, lock me in your Heart, and close the doors, that I may see nothing but You. I promise You that every time the thought comes to me of wanting to go out of this Heart, immediately I will cry out: “Jesus and Mary, to You I give my heart and my soul.”

Twenty-Third: O my Jesus, what can love not do? Love is life, and with my love I want to give You life; and if mine is not enough, give me your love. With your love, I will be able to do anything – yes, I will be able to give life to your Most Holy Humanity. O my Jesus, even after your death You want to show me that You love me, prove your love for me, and give me a refuge, a shelter, in your Sacred Heart. Therefore, pushed by a supreme force, to be assured of your death, a soldier rips your Heart open with a lance, opening a profound wound. And You, my Love, shed the last drops of Blood and water contained in your enflamed Heart.

Ah, how many things does this wound, opened by love, tell me! And if your mouth is mute, your Heart speaks to me, and I hear It say: “My child, after I gave everything, I wanted this lance to open a shelter for all souls inside this Heart of Mine. Opened, It will cry out to all, continuously: Come into Me if you want to be saved. In this Heart you will find sanctity and you will make yourselves saints; you will find relief in afflictions, strength in weakness, peace in doubts, company in abandonments. O souls who love Me, if you really want to love Me, come to dwell in this Heart forever.

Here you will find true love in order to love Me, and ardent flames for you to be burned and consumed completely in love. Everything is centered in this Heart: here are the Sacraments, here my Church, here the life of my Church and the life of all souls. In It I also feel the profanations made against my Church, the plots of the enemies, the arrows they send, and my oppressed children – there is no offense which my Heart does not feel. Therefore, my child, may your life be in this Heart – defend Me, repair Me, bring Me everyone into It.”

My love, if a lance has wounded your Heart for me, I beg that You too, with your own hands, wound my heart, my affections, my desires – all of myself. Let there be nothing in me which is not wounded by your love. I unite everything to the harrowing pains of our dear Mama, who, for the pain of seeing your Heart being ripped open, falls into a swoon of sorrow and love; and like a dove, She flies in It to take the first place – to be the first Repairer, the Queen of your very Heart, the Mediatrix between You and the creatures. I too, with my Mama, want to fly into your Heart, to hear how She repairs, and to repeat Her reparations for all the offenses You receive. O my Jesus, in this wounded Heart of Yours, I will find my life again; therefore, anything I may be about to do, I will always draw from It. I will no longer give life to my thoughts; but if these want life, I will take Yours. My will will no longer have life; but if it wants life, I will take your Most Holy Will. My love will no longer have life; if it wants life, I will take your Love. O my Jesus, all of your Life is mine – this is your Will, this is my will.

Twenty-Fourth Hour: Desolate Mama… I pray You to enclose me in the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus; and You, my sorrowful Mama, be my sentry, so that Jesus may not put me out of it; and I, even if I wanted, may not be able to leave. So I kiss your maternal hand; and You, bless me.

Feast of Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI PROCESSION

The Feast of Corpus Christi (Latin for Body of Christ), also known as Corpus Domini, is a Latin Rite liturgical solemnity celebrating the tradition and belief in the body and blood of Jesus Christ and his Real Presence in the Eucharist. It emphasizes the joy of the institution of the Eucharist, which was observed on Holy Thursday in the somber atmosphere of the nearness of Good Friday.

In the present Roman Missal, the feast is designated the solemnity of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ.[1] It is also celebrated in some Anglican, Lutheran, and Old Catholic Churches that hold similar beliefs regarding the Real Presence.

The feast is liturgically celebrated on the Thursday after Trinity Sunday or, “where the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is not a holy day of obligation, it is assigned to the Sunday after the Most Holy Trinity as its proper day”.[1] At the end of Holy Mass, there is often a procession of the Blessed Sacrament, generally displayed in a monstrance. The procession is followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

A notable Eucharistic procession is that presided over by the Pope each year in Rome, where it begins at the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran and makes its way to the Basilica of Saint Mary Major, where it concludes with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. – Wikipedia

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

V24 – 6.12.28

After this, since it was the Feast of Corpus Domini, I was thinking to myself that that day was the feast of the marriage that blessed Jesus did with souls in the Most Holy Sacrament of Love.

And my Beloved Jesus, moving in my interior, told me: “My daughter, the true marriage with humanity was done in Creation. Nothing was lacking, either to the soul or to the body; everything was done with royal sumptuousness. An immense palace was prepared for the human nature, such that no king or emperor can have one similar to it, which is the whole universe: a starry heaven and its vault, a sun whose light would never be extinguished; flourishing gardens in which the happy couple, God and man, would stroll, amuse itself and maintain the continuous, uninterrupted feast of our marriage; and garments, woven not with matter, but formed of purest light by Our Power, as befitted royal persons.

“Everything was beauty in man, soul and body, because He who prepared the marriage and formed it was of an unreachable Beauty. So, from the external sumptuousness of the so many enchanting beauties present in the whole of Creation, you can imagine the internal seas of sanctity, of beauty, of light, of science, etc., that the interior of man possessed. All the acts of man, internal and external, were as many musical keys that formed the most beautiful melodies, sweet, melodious, harmonious, that maintained the joy of the marriage. And each additional act that he would dispose himself to do was a new little sonata that he would prepare, to call his Spouse to delight with him.

“My Divine Will, that dominated humanity, brought him the new continuous act and the Likeness of the One who had created him and married him. But, in such great feast, man broke the strongest bond, in which lay the whole validity of our marriage and through which it had been in force: he withdrew from Our Will. Because of this, the marriage was broken, and since all the rights were lost, only the memory of it was left, but the substance, the life, the effects no longer existed.

“Now, the Sacrament of the Eucharist in which My Love overabounded in all possible imaginable ways, cannot be called either the first or the true marriage of Creation, for I do nothing but the continuation of what I did while being on earth. According to the needs present in souls, with some I make Myself the compassionate doctor in order to heal them, with some the teacher to instruct them, with some the father to forgive them, with some light to give them sight. I give strength to the weak, courage to the timid, peace to the restless—in sum, I continue My redemptive Life and Virtue; however, all these miseries exclude the true marriage.

“No young man marries a young woman who is ill—at most, he waits for her to recover; or a young woman who is weak and who offends him very often. And if the groom is a king and loves her, at most he waits for the bride to get well, to love him, and for her condition to become somehow satisfactory, and not so inferior to his. Now, the condition in which poor humanity finds itself is still that of a poor ill one, and I am waiting for My Will to be known and to reign in the midst of creatures, for It will give them true health, royal garments, beauty worthy of Me. Then will I form again the true and original marriage.”

We (the little family of Luisa) will Joyfully Celebrate, in our own communities,

The Solemnity of Corpus Christi also as “our wedding day with the Lord”

because we are linked to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta

Volume One

“. . . In this state of sufferings I (Jesus) will purify your soul thoroughly, in such a way as to dispose you to form a Mystical Marriage with Me; and after this, I (Jesus) will make the Last Transformation, in such a way that both of us will become like two candles placed on the Fire – one is Transformed into the other and they form a Single One.”

Volume 36 – 5/17/38

Then He added with more Loving Tenderness:

“My good daughter (Luisa), My Love wants to be tied more and more to (you) the creature, and the more Truths It (My Divine Love) Manifests regarding My Most Holy Divine Will, the more bonds I (Jesus) put between God and herself.

In Manifesting the Truth, My Divine Love is preparing the Marriage between God and the soul.

The more It Manifests the more Pomp and Magnificence this Marriage will have.

Would you like to know what happens then?

My Truths will be like the dowry needed in order to marry God; to get to know the One (God) who lowers Himself and even ties Himself—only for Love—in the bond of Marriage.

My Truths touch the creature over and over; They mold her to a New Life;

They (My Truths) return her to the Beauty of Our Image and Resemblance from the time she was Created, and Impress on her Their kiss of inseparable Union.

Just one of Our Truths can make a Sea of Prodigies and Divine Creations in the soul who has the goodness to listen to It.

One Truth can turn a perverted world into a Good and Holy one, because It is one of Our Lives, exposed for the Good of all.

It is a New Sun that We raise in created intellects; a Sun that will let Itself be known through Its Light and Heat, turning into Light and Heat whoever wants to listen.

Therefore, hiding a Truth that We give from Our Paternal Womb, with so much Love, is the greatest crime. It deprives human generations of the Greatest Good.

Further, one (Luisa and those linked to Luisa) who Lives in Our Most Holy Divine Will, by Marrying Us (Triune God), makes a Feast for all Saints.

All of them participate in this Divine Wedding and, because of It, they have their own party in Heaven and another one on earth.

Each act the creature does in Our Most Holy Divine Will is a Feast; a table sumptuously decked for the Heavenly Regions.

In return, the Saints give New Gifts.

They beseech the Lord to Manifest more Truths to the soul (Luisa), to broaden more and more the boundaries of the dowry that God gave to her (and to those linked to her.”)

 

“When one is linked to Luisa, one will also possess the Mystical Marriage because of her”

 

Fiat!

Month of June – Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

_sacred_heart_four_lvFROM THE LETTERS OF THE SERVANT OF GOD, LUISA PICCARRETA

Letter #20:  To Federico Abresch from Bologna

In Voluntate Dei! – Fiat

Most esteemed one in the Lord,

“…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, its 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 to give even our life 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.

Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart

I, [state your name], give myself and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ my person and my life, my actions, pains, and sufferings, so that I may be unwilling to make use of any part of my being save to honor, love, and glorify the Sacred Heart.

This is my unchanging purpose, namely, to be all His, and to do all things for the love of Him, at the same time renouncing with all my heart whatever is displeasing to Him.

I therefore take Thee, O Sacred Heart, to be the only object of my love, the guardian of my life, my assurance of salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for all the faults of my life, and my sure refuge at the hour of death.

Be then, O Heart of goodness, my justification before God Thy Father, and turn away from me the strokes of His righteous anger. O Heart of Love, I put all my confidence in Thee for I fear everything from my own wickedness and frailty, but I hope for all things from Thy goodness and bounty.

Do Thou consume in me all that can displease Thee or resist Thy Holy Will; let Thy pure love imprint Thee so deeply upon my heart, that I shall nevermore be able to forget Thee or to be separated from Thee; may I obtain from all Thy loving kindness the grace of having my name written in Thee, for in Thee I desire to place all my happiness and all my glory, living and dying in very bondage to Thee. Amen.

Amen.

Trinity Sunday

Holy Trinity 3FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN
V35 – 10.19.37

How the Divine Will forms the Most Holy Trinity in the creature who Lives in It.

“Blessed daughter of the Divine Volition, know that where My Will Reigns with Its Creative Power, Its Motion and Its Word, It Speaks in the works, in the steps, in the mind, in the breathing…. Wanting to establish Its Kingdom, My Will Speaks in order to Create Its Divine Life in each one of the acts of the creature. Therefore, it takes the greatest attention to sense where It wants to begin Its Teachings.

“By the Power of Its Word, Its Will Invests the human act—the breathing, the heartbeat, the thinking and the human word; and forms within it, Its Divine Work—the Breathing, the Heartbeat, the Thinking and the Divine Word. These Acts rise up to Heaven and present themselves before the Most Holy Trinity. Our Divinity looks at them, and what do We find? We find Ourselves, Our Life and even the Most Holy Trinity reproduced in these Acts. We look at the Prodigy of Our Will that overwhelmed the creature with Its Power, making of her the repetition of Our Own Life. O, how Happy, how enraptured We remain, because We find in her the Sanctity that resembles Us, Our Love that Loves Us, the Intelligence that understands Us, Our Power and Goodness that move Us to Love mankind through the bonds of Our Sweetness. We recognize Ourselves in her, finding the Work of Creation as We want It to be.

“A single one of these Acts contains such Wonders that they just can’t find enough room in which to place themselves, such is their Greatness. Only in Our Immensity can they find the place in which to stay, remaining Fused with Our Acts. What will Our Glory and the glory of the creature not be, since her acts, by virtue of Our Fiat, have their place within the Acts of her Creator? O, if all knew what it means to Live in the Divine Will, to let It Reign, they would compete with each other to be invested by It and become repeaters of Divine Life.”

Beloved Jesus kept silent. I remained immersed in the Sea of the Divine Volition, saying, as if stupefied: My God, what a great extent can be reached by one who Lives in Your Will…! And a crowd of thoughts, like many voices, were saying and saying… but I am unable to repeat them. Maybe I will be able to repeat them when I will be in the Heavenly Fatherland and possess the same language as up there.

So, feeling concerned, my Highest Good Jesus continued: “My daughter, don’t be surprised. Everything is possible to My Will. True Love, when It is Perfect, begins from oneself. The true model is the Most Holy Trinity. My Celestial Father Loved Himself, and in His Love He Generated His Son; so He Loved Himself in His Son. I, His Son, Loved Myself in the Father, and from this Love the Holy Spirit proceeded. By this Loving of Himself, the Heavenly Father Generated One Single Love, One Single Power, Sanctity, and so forth. He tied the inseparable Union of the Three Divine Persons.

“When We Created the Creation We Loved Ourselves. We Loved Ourselves in laying Heaven and in Creating the sun; it was the Love for Ourselves that moved Us to Create many beautiful things Worthy of Us and inseparable from Us. When We Created man the Love of Ourselves became more intense, and as We Loved Ourselves in him Our Love reproduced Our Life and Image in the depth of his soul. One can give nothing other than what he possesses. So, since Our Love was Perfect, as We Loved Ourselves, We could not separate Ourselves from what was coming from within Us.

“Now, Our Will, in wanting the creature to Live in It in order to form Its Kingdom, Loves Itself, and Loving Itself, wants to give what It possesses. Our Will is Happy only when It forms the repetition of Our Life, and when It Operates in the acts of the creature. Then, Triumphant and Victorious, and with Highest Glory and Honor for Us, It brings them into Our Divine Womb, so that We may Recognize Our own Life in the acts of the creature who Lives in Our Will. This is the meaning of Loving Itself in all that It wants to do and produce: giving Itself in order to form another being similar to Itself.

“Our Will is the fecundator and the sower of Our Life. Where It finds souls disposed It Loves Itself, fecundating them with Its Love—sowing in them Its Divine Acts, that, united together, form the Great Prodigy of the Divine Life in the creature. Therefore, abandon yourself completely in My Will. Let It make of you whatever It wants, and we’ll be Happy—you and Us.”
