January 23, 2024 – March 3, 2024: Praying the Titles of Luisa Piccarreta – Honoring Luisa in the Divine Attributes God Gave her

On this Feast of the Espousals of the Blessed Virgin Mary with St. Joseph (Hist. 1BC), the beginning of the Holy Family in the House of Nazareth, the little children of the little family of Luisa are invited to join this prayer of unity by echoing the “Titles of Luisa”, praying for the New Era!

V35 – 9.26.37 – “Whenever Our Will wants Us to Do an Act or Give a Gift, everyone and everything bend their knees to do what It Wants.  And when All have Prayed – even Our very Divine Attributes – We Confirm the Gift; the prayer of this creature becomes Universal, and each time she prays, she has such Power that All Our things Pray, even Our Attributes, because in that Gift she has received the Right over All.  What cannot be obtained with this Gift of Prayer?  It can be said that the Heavens Move, and that Our very Being Feels Enthralled and Bound; and IT SURRENDERS!”

A closing talk will be given by Father on the 77th Anniversary of Luisa’s Transit into Heaven – March 4th (details to follow). 

  The 40 days of prayer begin January 23, 2024, to March 3, 2024, eve of the 77th Anniversary of the Entrance into Heaven of the little daughter of the Divine Will, Luisa Piccarreta. 

Additionally, generous souls have recorded each day’s Titles, making it easy to listen to, if you choose.

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:

Alejandra Acuna’s Response to the Pause of the Cause of Luisa Piccarreta

My greetings to all of you in the Divine Will.

         I have been asked if Luisa’s Cause has been paused or suspended.

         The Cause is still in the Vatican and has Not been definitively suspended…it continues in the Vatican.

However, it is currently paused, for various reasons.  It is not being given the follow-up that the Cause should have, and the reasons were given by the Archbishop of Trani Leonardo D’Ascenzo in his last statement number 4 of March 4, 2020.

         The Vatican has already ruled on Luisa’s writings, saying that they contain No errors.  Although there are No theological errors, the Dicastery in charge has determined that a deeper study of the writings by experts and theologians is required to clarify some ideas and terms that really lend themselves to misinterpretation.  They have not yet appointed the theologians who will be part of this team of specialists who will be commissioned by the Church to carry out this specialized study.  Currently, the Cause is on pause.  Another problem is the misinterpretations that spread among groups in various parts of the world.  Also, anti-testimonies that have arisen.

What are the misinterpretations that have been made, and why IS the Vatican CURRENTLY skeptical about continuing Luisa’s cause?

         The problem is that the writings are being used to incite division in the Church, to foment rebellion against the authority of the Pope in the Church.  There are groups that have used the writings to separate themselves from the sacramental life, to stop frequenting the sacraments, to excuse themselves from participating in the life of the parish, isolating themselves instead of integrating with the whole, thus becoming a counter-witness.  There are also groups that do not recognize or submit to the authority of the Pope while claiming to follow Luisa.  This is a bad application of the writings; this is not understanding that we must follow the will of God in everything that we do.  If we want to live in the Divine Will, it is essential — a requirement — to do the Will of God in all possible aspects.  Hence, we must be docile and humble doing the will of God in all things: Unity with the Church, with the Holy Father, with certain persons of authority – for example, as regards Luisa: submit to the authority of the Archbishop of Trani and the Vatican authorities who oversee the cause – And then each person in their local Church must obey the parish priest, the bishop of the diocese, etc.  Let us be in good standing with the Church. It is important to pay attention to everything we have mentioned.

         In the same document the Bishop says that Luisa’s writings should not be used and presented as a threat to the modern world. Indeed, there are misguided persons who use the writings with emphasis on the threats of Chastisement… They like to use those types of threats on people and to relate apocalyptic ideas to our present times.  But most of what they proclaim have no clear basis in the Magisterium of the Church, no basis in the Gospels.

         It was not our Lord or Luisa’s intent – when mentioning chastisement — that it be used to threaten souls: “…if they don’t behave well, if they don’t listen to me, or if they don’t accept what I say, then things will go badly for them…” No, this is not the reason for-mentioning chastisements, but rather because of the status of Luisa as victim soul, so that Luisa would accompany Jesus in His pains, share those sorrows with him, and help him save souls, to acquire more graces to be able to convert, save and even sanctify souls.

         Thanks to Luisa’s office as a victim-soul united to Jesus and Mother Mary, God has mitigated many chastisements, and has called and forgiven all of us.  It is because of His great love — and not by threats – that He has called us to receive this Immense Gift.  We in turn must present it to others as what it is – and Jesus says it – it is “The Book of Heaven: The Call of the Creature to the Order, the Place and the Purpose for which He was Created by God.”  And it’s for the Kingdom of the Divine Will to reign here, on earth.  Hence, it is a total call of Love given to us in these times to convert, to sanctify ourselves, in the most sublime and highest way, in Jesus.

         In this document the Archbishop ends by saying that in addition to the above-mentioned, the writings must be presented as a call of Love, which invites us to read the writings always being attentive to and observing the Magisterium and Teachings of the Church; and that we apply what we read guided by those Teachings, and in this way give life to the Life of the Divine Will as it has been done in Luisa.  How Luisa lived it is the model for us: respecting the Church and the Pope, frequenting the sacraments, and placing emphasis on the main theme, which is the Will of God, and not the chastisements.

         How good it is to do the Will of God … how good the wonderful effects it produces in us.  In Luisa’s letters you can see how she spread the knowledge and the Kingdom of the Divine Will in a loving way.  We must see this as a call to purify ourselves more intensely: if we truly want to live in the Divine Will and have a much purer interpretation of the writings, let us adhere to what is written and interpret it in the light of the Magisterium.  Do not give interpretations that cause confusion and deviations, which in many cases have formed a counter-witness, an anti-testimony of rebellion against the Church and/or between groups…because you only follow a specific person who leads one group or another etc.  But it is quite the opposite, we must unite…we must be united following Jesus in His teachings that He deposited in His Church and in Luisa.  Luisa is the one who forms us; and no one else gives us an example in these times of how to live in the Divine Will.  The rest of us are mere instruments; and it’s not that only this one or another should be followed, as if all the others are wrong.  On the contrary, we must behave like brothers and sisters in a very loving family where charity, humility, etc. reign.  This is the testimony that is needed for the Cause to continue, so let us not allow disunity to be the reason for delaying the Kingdom of God on earth.

         How is this going to happen?  Jesus has already said it: that He did it through Luisa and the confessor, depositing this work in His Church, in the local Church of Trani and from there it has gone to the Vatican and from there it has reached us.  And He did not give it to us so that only certain particular groups could promote it, no!  He placed it in the Universal Church, and we must all be united to the Universal Church, to the Catholic Church and not form groups that seem like sects.

         If we are not united, what is going to happen?  If Luisa’s case is not going to bear good fruit in the Church, then the cause of beatification will not continue…do you understand?  And I repeat, in Luisa, God respects the authority that He himself has given to the Church and the procedures that He himself has inspired in the Church.  The procedure given in Luisa’s cause is not only the study of the writings, but also the good they produce in the people of God.  Let us then be good witnesses, let us set the good example … and not only so that the Cause may favorably continue, but so that we may truly become good fruits in the Divine Will.

Our Lady of Marienfried Thrice-Admirable Queen, Mother, and Mediatrix of All Graces

Our Lady of Marienfried

Thrice-Admirable Queen, Mother, and Mediatrix of All Graces

(1946, near Pfaffenhofen, Germany)




As the pleas, requests, and warnings sent to mankind by a merciful God through His Immaculate Mother at La Salette and Fatima went unheeded, He sent that same loving Mother once again to warn a prideful world in 1946 at Marienfried, a small town in Germany.

Having promised to build a chapel in Our Lady’s honor if the town of Pfaffenhofen were spared from destruction during the war, the pastor and several parishioners went to the nearby area of Marienfried to select a site for the chapel in fulfillment of their promise. It was there, on April 25th, that the series of apparitions began.

As at Fatima, an angel had appeared to one of the seers, Barbara Ruess, prior to the visits of Our Lady, calling himself the Angel of the Great Mediatrix of Graces. Preceding the appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary on May 25th, the Angel told Barbara to kneel in profound reverence as he prayed: “Act as the Mother of Grace; act as the thrice miraculous Mother; the thrice admirable Mother of Grace, Thou Great Mediatrix of Graces!”

As the Angel prayed, Our Lady appeared… “unspeakably beautiful, brilliant, a blinding vision of most pure light and radiance… above Her head were brilliant rays forming a three-tiered crown.” As the Immaculate Queen raised Her hand in blessing, She became as transparent as crystal. Barbara was completely blinded by the brilliance and could not look upon it anymore.

Again as at Fatima, profound devotion to the Most Holy Trinity (as at the Cabeco) was emphasized by the Angel and, at the June 25th apparition, a large number of angels surrounding their Immaculate Queen, knelt on the ground and bowed over profoundly. They then prayed in adoration of the Most Holy Trinity.

At Marienfried, as at Fatima, the importance of the Rosary was emphasized and at the conclusion of the Rosary it was requested that an appeal should be made to Our Blessed Mother as the Mediatrix of All Graces. (It was a fitting response to this request that the Founder and Superior of our own Religious Community composed a most appropriate invocation to Our Lady under this title which he ordered to be recited after our Community Rosary.)

In addition to exhortations for greater sacrifice and a more perfect living of our total consecration, Our Blessed Mother exhorted Her wayward children to offer more frequent acts of love, praise, and gratitude to the Eternal Father and the Most August Trinity. She said that Almighty God wished the Church and Its members to acknowledge Her role as Mediatrix of All Graces, and She exhorted us all not to be seekers of self, but rather to spend every moment in giving honor and glory to God.

The following is a compilation of the essence of the various messages given to mankind by Our Immaculate Mother and Queen during Her series of most significant apparitions in southwestern Germany:

“I am the powerful Mediatrix of Graces. As the world can find mercy only through the sacrifice of the Son with the Father, so can you only find favor with the Son through my intercession. Christ is so unknown because I am not known. Because the nations rejected His Son, the Father poured out His cup of wrath upon them. It is true that the world was consecrated to my Immaculate Heart, but this consecration has become a fearful responsibility for many men. I demand that the world live this consecration.”

“I am the sign of the Living God. I place my Sign on the foreheads of my children (those who consecrate themselves to my Immaculate Heart). The star (Lucifer) will persecute the Sign. But my Sign will conquer the star.”

“Have unreserved confidence in my Immaculate Heart! Believe that I am able to do everything with my Son. Substitute my Immaculate Heart in place of your sinful hearts. Then it will be I who will draw the power of God, and the love of the Father will renew the fullness of Christ in you. Fulfill my request so that Christ may reign as the King of Peace.”

“The world will have to drain the cup of wrath to the dregs because of the countless sins through which His Heart is offended. The Star of the infernal regions will rage more violently than ever and will cause frightful destruction, because he knows that his time is short, and because he sees that already many have gathered around my sign. Over these he has no spiritual power, although he will kill the bodies of many; but through these sacrifices, my power to lead the remnant host to victory will increase.”

“Some have already allowed my Sign to be impressed on them; their number will increase. But I want to tell you, my children, not to forget that the very cross of those bloody days is a grace.”

“Pray, make sacrifices for sinners. Offer yourselves and your works to the Father through me, and put yourselves at my disposal without reserve. Pray the Rosary. Pray not so much for external things – weightier things are at stake in these times. EXPECT NO SIGNS OR WONDERS (such as the many phony visions and apparitions deluging the world today). I shall be active as the powerful Mediatrix in secret.”

“After this, the Devil will be possessed of such power that those who are not firmly established in me will be deceived. There is a time coming when you will stand in this place all alone and will be frightfully calumniated. Because the Devil knows how to deceive men, they permit themselves to be completely blinded to the higher things. But you should establish everything on confidence (in my Immaculate Heart).”

“The devil has power over all people who do not trust in my Heart. Wherever people substitute my Immaculate Heart for their sinful hearts, the devil has no power. But he will persecute my children. They will be despised, but he can do them no harm.”

“I am the powerful MEDIATRIX OF GRACE. It is the will of the Father that the world acknowledge this position of His Handmaid. People must believe that I am the permanent Bride of the Holy Ghost and the faithful Mediatrix of All Graces. God wants it so. Only my children recognize this Sign because it reveals itself in secret, and for it they give glory to the Eternal God. I cannot manifest my power to the world in general. I must still hold myself aloof with my children.”

“In secret I shall work marvels in souls until the required number of victim souls will be filled. Upon you it depends to shorten the days of darkness. Your blood and your sacrifices shall destroy the image of the beast. Then I can manifest myself to the world for the glory of the Almighty. Choose my Sign, so that the Triune God may soon be adored and honored.”

“Apostles and Priests should consecrate themselves to me especially, so that the great sacrifices which the Inscrutable One demands above all from them may, when placed in my hands, increase in sanctity and worth.”

“Pray and offer sacrifices through me. Pray always; pray the Rosary. Make all your entreaties to the Father through my Immaculate Heart. If they are conducive to His honor, He will grant them. In your prayers ask Him not for things of temporal worth, but implore graces for individual souls, for the community; for the nations, so that all may come to love and honor the Divine Heart. Keep the Saturdays, which have been dedicated to me, as I have requested.”

“Bring many sacrifices and offerings to me. Offer your prayers to me as sacrifices. Be not seekers of self. That honor be shown to the Eternal and atonement be made to Him is required of these times. If you consecrate yourselves without reserve, I shall take care of all the rest. Crosses weighty and deep as the sea I shall lay upon my children, because I love them in my Sacrificed Son. I beseech you, be prepared to carry the cross that peace may soon be achieved.”

“I have already given many signs and spoken often to the world, but people have not taken them seriously. On account of these outward signs the greater multitude do not even grasp the essential things. Outward signs only succeed in distracting many, who do not draw the necessary conclusions from them.”

“I urge my people to fulfill my wishes quickly, because today more than ever such fulfillment of my will is necessary for God’s greater honor and glory. The Father pronounces a dreadful woe upon all who refuse to obey His Will.”

Mary, Immaculate Queen of the Universe, Spouse of the Holy Ghost, Mediatrix of All Graces, Triumph and Reign, in the Name of Jesus, and for the Love of Jesus, Now and Forever. Amen.

Graciously hear, we beg you, O Lord, the prayers of your suppliants, and pardon the sins of those who confess to you, that in your bounty you may grant us both pardon and peace.

In your clemency, O Lord, show us your ineffable mercy, that you may both free us from all our sins, and deliver us from the punishments which we deserve for them.

God, who by sin are offended and by penance pacified, mercifully regard the prayers of your suppliant people, and turn away the scourges of your anger, which we deserve for our sins.

Almighty, everlasting God, have mercy upon your servant N., our Sovereign Pontiff, and direct him according to your clemency into the way of everlasting salvation, that by your grace he may desire those things that are pleasing to you, and perform them with all his strength.

O God, from whom are holy desires, good counsels, and just works, give to your servants that peace which the world cannot give, that our hearts be set to keep your commandments, and that, being removed from the fear of our enemies, we may pass our time in peace under your protection.

Burn our desires and our hearts with the fire of the Holy Spirit, O Lord, that we may serve you with a chaste body, and with a clean heart be pleasing to you.

O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all the faithful, grant to the souls of your servants and handmaids the remission of all their sins, that, through devout prayers, they may obtain the pardon which they always desired.

Direct, we beg you, O Lord, our actions by your holy inspirations, and carry them on by your gracious assistance, that every prayer and work of ours may begin always with you, and through you be happily ended.

Almighty and everlasting God, you have dominion over the living and the dead, and you are merciful to all who you foreknow will be yours by faith and good works; we humbly beg you that those for whom we intend to pour forth our prayers, whether this present world still detain them in the flesh, or the world to come has already received them our of their bodies, may through the intercession of all your Saints, by the clemency of your goodness, obtain the remission of all their sins. Through Christ our Lord.

V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come to you.

V. May the almighty and merciful Lord graciously hear us.
R. Amen.

V. And may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
R. Amen.

Hymn to Saint Raphael the Archangel

Hymn to Saint Raphael the Archangel from the Liturgical Year, 1903

O Raphael, divinely sent guide, graciously receive the hymn we suppliants address to thee with joyful voice.

Make straight for us the way of salvation, and forward our steps: lest at any time we wander astray, and turn from the path to heaven.

Look down upon us from on high; reflect into our souls the splendor shining from above, from the holy Father of lights.

Give perfect health to the sick, dispel the darkness of the blind: and while driving away diseases of the body, give spiritual strength to our souls.

Thou who standest before the Sovereign Judge, plead for the pardon of our crimes: and as a trusty advocate appease the avenging wrath of the Most High.

Renewer of the great battle, crush our proud enemy: against the rebel spirits give us strength, and increase our grace.

To God the Father be glory, and to his only Son, together with the Paraclete Spirit, now and for evermore. Amen.
