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.
