Storm Heaven with Prayers to Luisa


Storm Heaven with Prayers to Luisa.

         If we wish the Servant of God to continue, and even hasten, her ascent to the glory of the altar, let us give her a chance to perform first class miracles.

       Luisa’s holiness and the favors as the little daughter of the Divine Will already granted should impregnate our supplications with unquenchable confidence.  

         It is certainly permissible to pray to Luisa in our daily needs, but let us not be afraid to implore real miracles from her.  

         Let us invoke Luisa or have her invoked in cases of fatal maladies, wherein science has to declare itself powerless.  

         That is when Luisa Piccarreta will be able to display the prodigious power of her intercession.


For the glory of God and of Luisa Piccarreta, kindly write out the favors obtained, sign them, with two witnesses, if possible, and send to:

Luisa and St. Annibale Maria di Francia – Feast Day June 1

Luisa and St. Annibale Maria di Francia

 V22 – 6.1.27St. Annibale Maria di Francia to Heaven 1927Luisa: “I saw the blessed soul of father (St. Annibale Maria di Francia) before me, near my bed, Invested with Light, Suspended from the earth, fixing on me, but without telling me one word.  I too felt mute before him, and Jesus added:  “Look at him, how Transformed he is.  My Will is Light, and has Transformed that soul into Light; It is Beautiful, and has Given him all the Tints of Perfect Beauty; It is Holy, and he has been Sanctified.  My Will Possesses All Sciences, and his soul has been Invested by Divine Science.  There is nothing which My Will has not Given to him.  Oh! if all understood what Divine Will means, they would put everything aside, they would care about doing nothing else, and their whole commitment would be to do My Will alone… the Miracle which the Divine Will wants you to make is that of Giving My Will to creatures, and of making It Known in order to let It Reign.  With this Miracle you will do more than anything; you will place the Salvation, the Sanctity, the Nobility of creatures in Safety, and will also banish their corporal maladies, caused by the fact that My Divine Will does not Reign.  Not only this, but you will place a Divine Will in Safety in the midst of creatures, and will Give Back to It All the Glory and the Honor which human ingratitude has taken away from It.  This is why I did not allow that you would make the Miracle of healing him (Father di Francia); but you made for him the Great Miracle of letting him know My Will, and he left the earth with the Possession of It.  And now he Enjoys, in the Sea of the Light of the Divine Will – and this is More than anything.”

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”

The Cross is a Treasure

The Cross is a Treasure

From the Book of Heaven

V7 – 8.11.06 – Finding myself in my usual state, I saw my Adorable Jesus with a Cross in His hand, all Full of White Pearls. Giving it to me as Gift, He placed it on my breast, and it sank into my heart as inside a room. Then He told me: “My daughter, the Cross is a Treasure, and the safest place in which to keep this Valuable Treasure is one’s own soul. Or rather, it is a safe place when the soul is disposed to receive this Treasure with Patience, with Resignation and with the other Virtues, because the Virtues are as many Keys that Secure it, so as not to spoil It or expose It to thieves. But if It does not find especially the Gold Key of Patience, this Treasure will find many thieves, who will steal It and spoil It.”

Feast of St. Patrick – March 17 – Lorica of St. Patrick – Miracles of Resurrection

Lorica of Saint Patrick

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ’s birth and His baptism,
Through the strength of His crucifixion and His burial,
Through the strength of His resurrection and His ascension,
Through the strength of His descent for the judgment of doom.

I arise today
Through the strength of the love of cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In service of archangels,
In the hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In the prayers of patriarchs,
In preachings of the apostles,
In faiths of confessors,
In innocence of virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.

I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s hosts to save me
From snares of the devil,
From temptations of vices,
From every one who desires me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a mulitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and evil,
Against every cruel merciless power that opposes my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom,
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of women and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man’s body and soul.
Christ shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that reward may come to me in abundance.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through a belief in the Threeness,
Through a confession of the Oneness
Of the Creator of creation.

St. Patrick (ca. 377)

Resurrection Miracles Performed by St. Patrick, Apostle of Ireland

“He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath everlasting life: and I will raise him up in the last day.” –John 6:55

It has been said that St. Patrick (c. 389 – c.461) performed a thousand miracles. And why not? Many more (40,000) were prudently attributed to St. Vincent Ferrer, the Dominican mission and “Angel of the Judgment.”

Moreover, the authors knows of no saint for whom there are claimed so many resurrection miracles during on apostolic lifetime as for St. Patrick; there were as many as 39 of these wonders. Thrirty-three are mentioned in one specific report:

“For the blind and the lame, the deaf and the dumb, the palsied, the lunatic, the leprous, the epileptic, all who labored under any disease, did he in the Name of the Holy Trinity restore unto the power of their limbs and unto entire health; and in these good deeds was he daily practiced. Thirty and three dead men, some of whom had been many years buried, did this great reviver raise from the dead, as above we have more fully recorded.”

The above is quoted from The Life and Acts of St. Patrick, translated from the original Latin of Jocelin, Cistercian monk of Furnes of the 12th century, by Edmund L. Swift, Esq., Dublin, 1908. A writer that far back probably had sources not available 800 years or more later. Paul Gallico (in The Steadfast Man) wrote the following concerning the value of tradition: “Tradition is sometimes more to be trusted than written records, and particularly in a country such as Ireland, where in the early days there was no written record and history was handed down by the poets in the form of sagas, and memory was cultivated far beyond what it is today. In pre-Christian Ireland every educated man’s head was the storehouse for the archives of the nation.”

St. Patrick was a great missionary bishop who converted a whole land from paganism, overturning the religion of the druids. He consecrated 350 bishops, erected 700 churches, and ordained 5,000 priests. In less than 30 years the greater part of Ireland was Catholic; St. Patrick so consolidated it in the Christian faith that during the Protestant Revolt Ireland was almost unique in its preservation of the Faith. Even today, people speak of “the faith of the Irish.”

It is hard, indeed impossible, to comprehend such a vast and enduring transformation without the visible support of God through great works and wonders. But that is what Christ promised to His Apostles, and it has been historically demonstrated in the well-attested lives of His great missionary saints.

St. Patrick himself has personally attested to some of these signs and wonders: “And let those who will, laugh and scorn–I shall not be silent; nor shall I hide the signs and wonders which the Lord has shown me many years before they came to pass, as He knows everything even before they came to pass, as He knows everything even before the times of the world.” This seems to apply in particular to his prophetic dream-visions.

In his Letters (as in his Confessions and his Letter to Coroticus), Patrick wrote such things as: “I was not worthy…that He should bestow on me so great grace toward that nation.” And: “I baptized in the Lord so many thousands of persons.” And: “that many people through me should be regenerated to God.” Patrick also wrote: “that I might imitate, in some degree, those whom the Lord long ago foretold would herald His Gospel, for a witness to all nations before the end of the world.” St. Patrick indicated that the Holy Spirit was within him, and he compared himself with St. Paul in a reference to the “unspeakable groanings” of the Holy Spirit.

Further, the ancient author quotes from a reputed “epistle” (letter) of St. Patrick in a country beyond the sea:

“The Lord hath given to me, though humble, the power of working miracles among a barbarous people, such as are not recorded to have been worked by the great Apostles; inasmuch as, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, I have raised from the dead bodies that have been buried many years; but I beseech you, let no one believe that for these or the like works I am to be at all equalled with the Apostles, or with any perfect man, since I am humble, and a sinner, and worthy only to be despised.”

Perhaps because of rumors and his fame St. Patrick was trying to put things in proper perspective. The word “humble,” in his usage, probably meant “lowly” or “insignificant.” The author of the ancient manuscript observes that he admired the greatness of Patrick’s humility more than his raising of the dead. Patrick himself knew well that his abundance of charismatic gifts (given by God for the glory of God and the benefit of others), far from making him holy, could be a great liability.

Despite his limited number of references fo his own greatness, and despite their modesty, it is obvious to anyone familiar with great missionary saints that the spiritual greatness indicated above and displayed in Patrick’s life would also call for the marvelous gifts often accompanying such apostles–the most common of which is the working of numerous miracles, including the raising of the dead.

Anyone can gather from his writings, and also from the results of his apostolate of 20-30 years, that St. Patrick was a resolute, steadfast “iron man”; he was a bishop who established monastic discipline in a pagan land, who apparently baptized hundreds of thousands, who converted princes and turned pagan princesses into virgin nuns, who converted the worshipers of idols and the sun and impure things, and who organized and built many churches, leaving behind priests to care for souls. These were the tremendous and enduring accomplishments in one apostle’s missionary lifetime.

St. Patrick’s was an achievement unique in history. Thus it would see to be a moral certainty that St. Patrick raised the dead on several occasions. This chapter has been cut down from an originally much longer manuscript-chapter on his reported raisings of the dead, because of the lack of historical records on these matters. Herein are presented only the best substantiated cases.

Since St. Patrick is claimed to have worked 33 resurrection miracles, it seems a moral certitude that he truly must have worked at least a good number of such wonders, even if the count of 33 may not be exactly accurate. (Some details may be confused, and thus two slightly different accounts could actually refer to the same event.) It is only fair to report at least several of these.

One day St. Patrick came to a place called Fearta. On the side of the hill two women had been buried. Patrick ordered the earth removed; in the Name of Christ, he raised them up. The two proclaimed that their idols were vain and that Christ was the true God. Along with the women, many bystanders were baptized. As the ancient writer observes, Patrick not only revived these two from a double death (both temporal and eternal death), but by this miracle he gave spiritual resurrection to many other souls.

Luisa and the Feast of Purim

Tuesday, March 7, 2023

Purim, or the Festival of Lots, is a joyous holiday that celebrates the Biblical story of the rescue of the Jews in ancient Persia:

V36 – 10.30.38 – “We even reach the extent of Giving her the Right to Judge Together with Us, and if We See that she suffers because the sinner is under a rigorous Judgment, to soothe her pain We Mitigate Our Just Chastisements.  She makes Us Give the Kiss of Forgiveness, and to make her happy we say to her:  ‘poor daughter, you are right.  You are Ours and belong also to them.  You feel in you the bonds of the human family, therefore you would want that We Forgive everybody.  We’ll do as much as We can to please you, unless he despises or refuses Our Forgiveness.’  This creature In Our Will is the New Esther wanting to Rescue her peoples.

Oh! how Happy We are to Keep her Always with Us In Our Will because, through her, We feel more Inclined to Use Mercy, to Concede Graces, to Forgive the most obstinate sinners, and to Abbreviate the pains of the Purging souls.  Poor daughter!  She has a thought for everyone, and a pain similar to Ours, seeing the human family swimming in Our Will without recognizing It – living in the middle of enemies in the most wretched misery.”

Luisa, the New Esther, Pray for us in the Most Holy Divine Will, and Rescue us from the misery of our human will!
