The Chaplet of the Divine Will
by Saint Annibale Maria Di Francia
Saint Hannibal di Francia was one of Luisa’s extraordinary Confessors and was responsible for first publishing Luisa’s books, “The Virgin Mary in the Kingdom of the Divine Will” and “The Hours of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ”. He was also responsible for granting the “Nihil Obstat” to the first 19 volumes which were then given the “Imprimatur” by Archbishop Joseph Leo. In his last years, Saint Hannibal wrote the little “Chaplet of the Divine Will” and recited this prayer several times a day during his last sickness.
The Little Rosary of the Divine Will begins with the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be, and continues by praying on every “Hail Mary” bead: “Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”
A “Glory Be” is prayed on every “Our Father” bead, and at the end pray:
“Lord Jesus, we praise you, we love you, we bless you, and we thank you who are God with the Father and the Holy Spirit in your Holy and Eternal Divine Will. Amen”
