Nine Excesses of Jesus in the Incarnation – Jesus Speaks of the Nine Excesses to Luisa

December 16 Begins the Christmas Novena of the Nine Excesses of Jesus in the Incarnation

Praying for all this Christmas time, in the Name of Jesus, under the Mantle of Mary
and through the intercession of the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta.
 
St. Annibale said of this Novena:
 

“…I also tell you that in reading the nine Exercises of Christmas, of which we have already prepared the proofs, one remains astounded at the immense Love and the immense suffering of Our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ for love of us, and for the salvation of souls.  I have never read in any other book on this topic a Revelation so touching and penetrating!”    St. Annibale Maria Di Francia Feb. 14, 1927

 
May we all come to know and love Our Lord, Our Lady and all our brothers more and more, and prepare well for the coming of Jesus Who yearns to Reign in our hearts!

Fiat Voluntas Tua!

Speaking of the Nine Excesses of Jesus in the Incarnation.  Contentments of Jesus.  His Word is Creation.  Jesus sees the scenes of His Love being repeated.  Preludes of His Kingdom.

I was doing my meditation, and since today it was the beginning of the Novena of Baby Jesus, I was thinking about the nine excesses of His Incarnation, that Jesus had narrated to me with so much tenderness, and that are written in the first volume.  I felt great reluctance at reminding the confessor about this, because, in reading them, he had told me that he wanted to read them in public in our chapel.

Now, while I was thinking of this, my little Baby Jesus made Himself seen in my arms, so very little, caressing me with His tiny little hands, and saying to me:  “How beautiful is My little daughter (Luisa)!  How beautiful!  How I (Jesus) must thank you (Luisa) for having listened to Me.”

And I:  “My Love, what are You saying?  It is I who must thank You for having spoken to me, and for having given me, with so much love, acting as my teacher, so many lessons that I did not deserve.”

And Jesus:  “Ah, My daughter (Luisa), to how many do I want to speak, and they do not listen to Me, reducing Me to silence and to suffocating My Flames.  So, we must thank each other—you thank Me, and I thank you.  And then, why do you want to oppose the reading of the Nine Excesses?  Ah! You do not know how much Life, how much Love and Grace they contain.  You must know that My Word is Creation, and in narrating to you the Nine Excesses of My Love in the Incarnation, I not only renewed My Love that I had in incarnating Myself, but I created New Love in order to invest the creatures and conquer them to give themselves to Me.

“These Nine Excesses of My Love, manifested with so much Love of Tenderness and Simplicity, formed the prelude of the many Lessons I (Jesus) was to give you (Luisa) about My Divine Fiat, in order to form Its Kingdom.  And now, by their being read, My Love is renewed and redoubled.  Don’t you want, then, that My Love, being redoubled, overflow outside and invest more hearts, so that, as a prelude, they may dispose themselves for the Lessons of My Will, to make It Known and Reign?”

And I:  “My dear Baby, I believe that many have spoken about Your Incarnation.”

And Jesus:  “Yes, yes, they have spoken, but those have been words taken from the shore of the Sea of My Love, therefore they are words that possess neither Tendernesses, nor Fullnesses of Life.  But those few Words that I have spoken to you, I have spoken from within the Life of the Fount of My Love, and they contain Life, irresistible Strength, and such Tendernesses, that only the dead will not feel themselves being moved to pity for Me, tiny little One, who suffered so many Pains even from the Womb of the Celestial Mama.”

After this, the confessor was reading in the chapel the First Excess of the Love of Jesus in the Incarnation; and my sweet Jesus, from within my interior, pricked up His ears to listen.  And drawing me to Himself, He said to me:  “My daughter (Luisa), how happy I feel in listening to them.  But My Happiness increases in keeping you (Luisa) in this House of My Divine Will, as both of us are listeners:  I (Jesus), of what I have told you (Luisa), and you, of what you (Luisa) have heard from Me.  My Love swells, boils and overflows.  Listen, listen—how beautiful it is!  The Word contains the Breath, and as it is spoken, the Word carries the Breath that, like air, goes around from mouth to mouth and communicates the Strength of My Creative Word; and the New Creation that My Word contains descends into the hearts.

“Listen, My daughter (Luisa):  in Redemption I (Jesus) had the cortege of My Apostles, and I was in their midst, all Love, in order to instruct them; I spared no toil in order to form the Foundation of My Church.  Now, in this House, I feel the cortege of the First Children of My Divine Will, and I feel My Loving Scenes being repeated, in seeing you (Luisa) in their midst, all Love, wanting to impart the Lessons about My Divine Fiat in order to form the Foundations of the Kingdom of My Divine Will.  If you knew how happy I (Jesus) feel in seeing you (Luisa) speak about My Divine Volition….  I (Jesus) anxiously await the moment when you (Luisa) begin to speak, in order to listen to you, and to feel the Happiness that My Divine Will brings Me.”

The Word of Jesus is Sun – One who Lives in the Divine Will Lives in the Most Holy Humanity of Jesus

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

jesus-christ-crucifixion-470

12/14/11 – Vol. 10
The Word of Jesus is Sun; it nourishes the mind, and satiates the heart with Love.

I continue my most bitter days, though resigned to the Will of God. My always lovable Jesus, if He makes Himself seen, is always afflicted and taciturn; it seems He no longer wants to pay attention to me in anything. This morning, making Himself seen, He put two earrings on my ears – so shining as to look like two suns. Then He told me: “My beloved daughter (Luisa), for one who is all intent on listening to Me, My Word is Sun, which not only delights the hearing, but nourishes the mind and satiates the heart with Me and with My Love. Ah! they don’t want to understand that all My intent is to have all of you intent within Me, without paying attention to anything else. Look at her (pointing at someone), with her way of scrutinizing everything – she pays attention to everything, she is affected by everything, up to the excesses – and even in holy things. This is nothing but a living outside of Me, and one who lives outside of Me, by necessity feels herself very much. She thinks she does honor to Me, but it is the opposite.”

12/14/12 – Vol. 11

luisa1

One who Lives in the Divine Will Lives in the Most Holy Humanity of Jesus, in order to do what He does and embrace everyone and everything. One who Lives completely in His Will is not tempted.

This morning, when my always adorable Jesus came, He tied me with a golden thread and told me: “My daughter (Luisa), I do not want to tie you with ropes and chains. Iron shackles and chains are used with the rebels, but with the docile – with those who want no life other than My Divine Will, and who take no food other than My Love – a thread is enough to keep them united with Me; and many times I don’t even use this thread. They are so deeply into Me, that we form one single thing. So, if I use the thread, it is almost to joke with them.”

While Jesus was tying me, I found myself in the endless sea of the Will of my Jesus and, consequently, of all creatures; and I went wandering in the mind of Jesus, in the eyes of Jesus, in the mouth of Jesus, in the Heart of Jesus, as well as in the mind, in the eyes and in everything else of the creatures, doing all that Jesus did. Oh, how Jesus embraces all, without excluding anyone! Then, Jesus added: “One (Luisa) who Lives in My Divine Will, embracing everything, praying and repairing for all, takes within herself the Love that I (Jesus) have for everyone; she encloses in just herself the Love that I have for all. For as much as I (Jesus) love her (Luisa), she is equally dear to Me and beautiful. She leaves everyone behind.”

Then, having read that one who is not tempted is not dear to God, and since it seems to me that for a long time I have not known what temptation is, I mentioned this to Jesus, and He told me: “My daughter (Luisa), one who Lives completely in My Divine Will is not subject to temptation, because the devil does not have the power to enter My Divine Will; not only this, but he, himself, does not want to enter because My Divine Will is Light, and in front of this Light the soul would recognize his tricks and would therefore make fun of the enemy. The enemy does not like this mockery, which are more terrible for him than hell itself; so he does all he can to stay away from her. Try to get out of My Divine Will, and you will see how many enemies will swoop down on you. One (Luisa) who Lives in My Divine Will always carries the Flag of Victory high, and none of the enemies dare to confront this impregnable Flag.”

How all created things possess a dose of Happiness

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

12/13/28 – Vol. 25

Luisa_Piccarreta_5

How all created things possess a dose of Happiness.  How the privation of Jesus makes Life rise again.

I was fusing myself in the Holy Divine Volition, and as I accompanied Its Acts done in the Creation, my sweet Jesus, moving in my interior, told me:  “My daughter (Luisa), all created things were created by Us with a dose of Happiness, one distinct from the other; so, each created thing brings to man the Kiss, the Air that delights, the Life of Our Happiness.  But do you know who feels all the effects of Our many Happinesses that are spread in the Creation descend into her interior, to the point of remaining soaked with them like a sponge?  (Luisa) One who Lives in Our Divine Will.

“Our Happinesses are not foreign to her (Luisa), because, since she has her taste purified by Our Fiat and not corrupted by the human will, her taste and all of her senses have the virtue of enjoying all the happinesses that are present in the created things, and We feel so much happiness and joy in seeing one who does Our Will as though sitting at the table of Our Happinesses and feeding herself with as many different bites for as many as are the happinesses present in the created things.  Oh! how beautiful it is to see the creature happy.”

At that moment, Jesus kept silent, and I heard the sound of the harmonium playing in the chapel; and Jesus pricked up His ears to listen, and then He added:  “Oh! how happy I feel because this sound delights (Luisa) the little daughter of My Divine Will.  And I, in hearing it, delight together with her.  Oh! how beautiful it is to be delighted together.  To make one who loves Me happy is the greatest of My Happinesses.”

And I:  “Jesus, my Love, my happiness for me is You alone, all other things hold no attraction over me.”

And Jesus:  “Certainly the greatest Happiness for you (Luisa) is I (Jesus), because I contain the source of all Joys and Happinesses; but I (Jesus) enjoy in giving you (Luisa) the small happinesses, and just as I Myself feel them and enjoy them, I want you to feel them and enjoy them together with Me.”

Then, I was thinking to myself:  “Jesus delights so much when I delight in the many happinesses that He spread in the Creation; and why, then, does He grieve me so much, and He renders me so unhappy, to the point of feeling as if I had no Life without Him?  And in feeling myself without Life, all happinesses lose life over my poor soul!”

And Jesus added:  “My daughter (Luisa), if you knew what the utility of My privations is….  You feel yourself Lifeless without Me, you feel you are dead; yet, over that pain and that death, My New Life is formed; and this New Life brings you (Luisa) the New Manifestations of the Life of My Divine Will.  In fact, since your pain is a Divine Pain, that has the Virtue of making you feel death, but without dying, it has the Virtue of making My very Life rise again, with the enchantment of My Truths.

“The pain of My privation prepares the place for My New Life, and disposes your soul to listen to and to comprehend the important Truths on My Divine Fiat.  If I did not deprive you of Me so very often, you (Luisa) would not have had the New Surprises of your Jesus, His many Teachings.  Have you yourself not seen how, after you have been without Me and you thought that everything was over for you, My Life would rise again in you (Luisa) and, all Love and Festive, I would set about giving you (Luisa) My Lessons?  So, when I (Jesus) deprive you (Luisa) of Me, I remain hidden in you and I (Jesus) prepare the work to give you (Luisa), and My New Life to rise again.

“I too suffered the pain of death, to make all creatures rise again in the Pain of My Death.  Death, suffered in the Divine order and in order to fulfill the Divine Will, produces Divine Life, so that all creatures might receive this Divine Life.  And, after having suffered so many deaths, I wanted to really die—how many Goods did My Resurrection not produce?  It can be said that with My Resurrection all the Goods of My Redemption rose again, and, with it, all Goods rose again for creatures, as well as their very Life.  Therefore, be attentive, and let Me do.”

Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe

FEAST DAY OF OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

 DECEMBER 12

Guadalupe_005click image for information about Our Lady of Guadalupe

POPE FRANCIS GREETS AMERICA, “A GENEROUS LAND”, ON THE FEAST OF OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE

Pope Francis 4Vatican City, 11 December 2013 (VIS) – Tomorrow is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of all America and therefore, in his greetings in Spanish during today’s general audience, the Pope addressed all brothers and sisters from the Continent, considering the Virgin of Tepeyac.

“When Our Lady appeared to Saint Juan Diego, her face was that of a woman of mixed blood, a mestiza, and her garments bore many symbols of the native culture. Like Jesus, Mary is close to all her sons and daughters; as a concerned mother, she accompanies them on their way through life. She shares all the joys and hopes, the sorrows and troubles of God’s People, which is made up of men and women of every race and nation.

“When the image of the Virgin appeared on the tilma of Juan Diego, it was the prophecy of an embrace: Mary’s embrace of all the peoples of the vast expanses of America – the peoples who already lived there, and those who were yet to come. Mary’s embrace showed what America – North and South – is called to be: a land where different peoples come together; a land prepared to accept human life at every stage, from the mother’s womb to old age; a land which welcomes immigrants, and the poor and the marginalized, in every age. A land of generosity.

“That is the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe”, concluded the Pope, “and it is also my message, the message of the Church. I ask all the people of the Americas to open wide their arms, like the Virgin, with love and tenderness. I pray for all of you, dear brothers and sisters, and I ask you to pray for me! May the joy of the Gospel always abide in your hearts. May the Lord bless you, and may Our Lady be ever at your side.

Laments of Jesus Seeing His Garments Divided – Adam Before Sinning was Clothed with Garment of Light

12/12/26 – Vol. 20

Jesus crucified soldiers casting lots

Lament of Jesus in His Passion, in seeing His garments being divided, and lots drawn for His tunic.  How Adam, before sinning, was clothed with Light, and as he sinned, he felt the need to cover himself.

I was doing my usual acts in the Supreme Fiat, and my adored Jesus came out from within my interior and told me:  “My daughter (Luisa), in My Passion there is a lament of Mine that came out with immense sorrow from the depth of My tormented Heart:  ‘They divided My garments and drew lots for My tunic.’  How painful it was for Me to see My garments being divided among My very executioners, and My tunic being gambled away.  It was the only object I possessed, given to Me, with so much Love, by My sorrowful Mama; and now, they not only stripped Me of it, but they made of it a game.

“But do you know who pierced Me the most?  In those garments, Adam became present to Me, clothed with the Garment of innocence and covered with the indivisible Tunic of My Supreme Will.  In creating him, the uncreated Wisdom acted as more than a most loving mother; more than with a tunic, It clothed him with the unending Light of My Will—a Garment that is not subject to being either disarranged, or divided, or consumed; a Garment that was to serve man in order to preserve the Image of his Creator and the Gifts received from Him, and that was to render him Admirable and Holy in all his things.  Not only this, but It covered him with the Overgarment of Innocence.  And Adam, in Eden, with his passions divided the Garments of Innocence, and he gambled away the Tunic of My Divine Will—a Garment that is incomparable and of Radiant Light.

“What Adam did in Eden was repeated under My Eyes on Mount Calvary.  In seeing My garments being divided and My tunic gambled away—symbol of the Royal Garment given to man, My sorrow was so intense that I made of it a lament.  It became present to Me when creatures, in doing their own will, make a game of Mine, and the so many times in which they divide the Garment of Innocence with their passions.  All Goods are enclosed in man by Virtue of this Royal Garment of the Divine Will; once this is gambled away, he remains uncovered, he loses all Goods, because he lacks the Garment that kept them enclosed within himself.  So, among the many evils that creatures do by doing their own will, they add the irreparable evil of gambling away the Royal Garment of My Divine Will—a Garment that cannot be substituted with any other garment.”

After this, my sweet Jesus showed me Himself placing my little soul inside a Sun, and with His Holy Hands He held me still within that Light, which was such that, as it covered me completely, inside and out, I could not see, nor was I able to see anything but Light.

And my Adored Good added:  “My daughter (Luisa), in creating man, the Divinity placed him inside the Sun of the Divine Will, and all creatures in him.  This Sun served as Garment not only for his soul, but Its Rays were such as to cover also his body, in such a way as to serve as more than a Garment for him, rendering him so Adorned and Beautiful that neither kings nor emperors have ever appeared so adorned as Adam appeared, with this Garment of most Refulgent Light.

“Those who say that, before sinning, Adam went naked are wrong.  False, false.  If all things created by Us are all adorned and clothed, he who was Our jewel, the Purpose for which all things were created—was he not to have the most beautiful Garment and the most beautiful Ornament of all?  So, to him befitted the beautiful Garment of the Light of the Sun of Our Will; and since he possessed this Garment of Light, he had no need of material garments in order to cover himself.  As he withdrew from the Divine Fiat, so did Light withdraw from his soul and from his body; he lost his beautiful Garment, and in seeing himself no longer surrounded with Light, he felt naked.  Feeling ashamed in seeing that he was the only one to be naked in the midst of all created things, he felt the need to cover himself, and he made use of superfluous things, created things, to cover his nakedness.

“This is so true, that after My highest sorrow of seeing My garments divided and My tunic gambled away, as My Humanity rose again I took no other garments, but I clothed Myself with the most Refulgent Garment of the Sun of My Supreme Will.  That was the same Garment as the one that Adam possessed when he was created, because in order to open Heaven, My Humanity was to wear the Garment of the Light of the Sun of My Supreme Will—a Royal Garment; and as it gave Me the insignia of King and Dominion into My Hands, I opened Heaven to all the redeemed ones; and presenting Myself before My Celestial Father, I offered Him the Garments of His Divine Will, whole and beautiful, with which My Humanity was covered, so as to make Him recognize all the redeemed ones as Our children.

“So, while It is Life, at the same time My Divine Will is the True Garment of the creation of the creature, and therefore It holds all Rights over her.  But how much do they not do to escape from within this Light?  Therefore, be still in this Sun of the Eternal Fiat, and I (Jesus) will help you (Luisa) to maintain yourself in this Light.”

On hearing this, I said to Him:  “My Jesus and My All, how is this?  If Adam in the state of innocence had no need of garments because the Light of Your Will was more than garment, the Sovereign Queen, however, possessed Your Will as whole, and You Yourself were Your Will Itself; yet, neither the Celestial Mama nor Yourself wore the Garments of Light, and both of You made use of material garments to cover Yourselves.  How is this?”

And Jesus continued, saying:  “My daughter (Luisa), both My Mama and I came to set fraternal bonds with creatures; We came to raise decayed humanity, and therefore to take up the miseries and humiliations into which it had fallen, in order to expiate for them at the cost of Our Lives.  Had they seen Us clothed with Light, who would have dared to approach Us and to deal with Us?  And in the course of My Passion, who would have dared to touch Me?  The Light of the Sun of My Will would have blinded them and crushed them to the ground.

“Therefore, I had to make a greater miracle, hiding this Light within the Veil of My Humanity, and appearing as one of them, because It represented, not Adam innocent, but Adam fallen, and so I was to subject Myself to all of his evils, taking them upon Myself as if they were My own, in order to expiate for them before Divine Justice.  But when I rose again from death, representing Adam innocent, the New Adam, I ceased the miracle of keeping the Garments of the Refulgent Sun of My Divine Will hidden within the Veil of My Humanity, and I remained clothed with most pure Light; and with this Royal and Dazzling Garment I made My entrance into My Fatherland, leaving the doors open that had remained closed up to that point, so as to let all of those who had followed Me enter.

“Therefore, by not doing Our Will, there is no Good that one does not lose, and there is no evil that one does not acquire.”

First Word that Adam Pronounced. God’s First Lesson to Adam. The Divine Will Operating in Man.

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

 

Creation of Adam 

12/10/33 – Vol. 33

The First Word that Adam Pronounced.  What the First Lesson that God gave him (Adam) was.  The Divine Will Operating in man.

            I am always the little tiny ignorant one of the Supreme Being, and when the Divine Volition plunges me in Its Seas, I see that hardly the vowels, if that, do I know about His Adorable Majesty.  And my littleness is so much, that hardly do I know how to swallow some little drop of the so much that the Creator possesses.  So, going around in the Works of the Divine Fiat, I stopped in Eden in which was made present to me the Creation of Man, and I thought to myself:  “What could be the first word that Adam said when he was Created by God?”

            And my Highest Good Jesus, visiting me with His brief little visit, all Goodness, as if He Himself wanted to tell it to me, told me:  “My daughter (Luisa), I (Jesus) also feel the desire to tell you what was the First Word pronounced by the lips of the first creature (Adam) Created by Us.  You must know that no sooner did Adam feel Life, Motion, Reason, than he saw his God before him and he understood that He had formed him.  He felt in himself, in his whole being, still fresh, the impressions, the Touch of His Creative Hands.  And grateful, in an impetus of Love he pronounced his First Word:  ‘I Love You my God, my Father, Author of this my life.’  But it was not only the word, but the breath, the heartbeat, the drops of his blood that flowed in his veins, the motion, his whole being united together said as in chorus:  ‘I Love You, I Love You, I Love You.’ 

            “In fact, the first Lesson that he learned from his Creator, the first word that he learned to say, the first thought that had life in his mind, the first heartbeat that formed in his heart, was:  ‘I Love You, I Love You.’  He felt himself Loved, and he Loved.  I could say that his ‘I Love You’ never ended, it was so long that only then was it interrupted when he had the disgrace of falling into sin.  So Our Divinity felt wounded in hearing on the lips of man ‘I Love You, I Love You.’  It was the same Word that We had Created in the organ of his voice that said to Us:  ‘I Love You.’  It was Our Love, Created by Us in the creature, that said to Us:  ‘I Love You.’  How not to remain wounded?  How not to exchange him with a larger, stronger, Love, Worthy of Our Magnificence? 

            “As We heard ‘I Love You’ said to Us, so We repeated to him ‘I Love you.’   But in Our ‘I Love you’ We let the Operating Life of Our Divine Will flow in his whole being.  In fact, We enclosed in man, as within one of Our Temples, Our Will, such that It was enclosed in the human circle, while It remained in Us so that It could work great things and It could be the thought, the word, the heartbeat, the step and the work of man.  Our ‘I Love you’ could not give anything more Holy, more Beautiful, more Powerful, that alone could form the Life of the Creator in the creature, than Our Will Operating in him.  And O! how pleasing it is to Us to see that Our Will has Its place of Actor.  And the human volition, dazzled by Its Light, enjoyed its Paradise.  And giving It full Liberty, it let It do what It wanted, giving It the Primacy in everything and the place of Honor that is befitting to a Volition so Holy. 

            “See, therefore, the beginning of the Life of Adam was an Act, with his whole being, full of Love toward God.  What a sublime Lesson—how the beginning of Love would run in the whole operation of the creature.  The First Lesson that he received from Our Supreme Being in exchange for his ‘I Love You,’ was that while We tenderly Loved him, responding to his ‘I Love You,’ We gave him the first Lesson on Our Divine Will.  And while We instructed him We communicated to him Its Life and the Infused Science of what Our Divine Fiat means.  And every time he said ‘I Love You’ to Us, Our Love prepared for him other more Beautiful Lessons about Our Volition.  He remained enraptured and We delighted Ourselves in conversing with him, and We made Perennial Rivers of Love and of Joys flow over him such that the human life became enclosed by Us in Love and in Our Will.  Therefore, My daughter (Luisa), there is no greater Sorrow for Us, than seeing Our Love as broken in the creature, and Our Will obstructed, suffocated, without Its Operating Life, and as subordinate to the human volition.  So be attentive, and in all things have Love and My Divine Will for beginning.”

The Soul Who Seeks the Lord Receives a Divine Shade, a Divine Feature – Effects of Prayers when Intimate with Jesus

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

LUISA PRAYING 12/10/03 – Vol. 6

Every time the soul seeks the Lord, she receives a Divine Shade, a Divine Feature.

Continuing in my usual state, I felt a weight over my soul, as if the whole world weighed upon me because of the privation of blessed Jesus; and in my immense bitterness I did as much as I could to look for Him.  Then, once He came, He told me:  “My daughter (Luisa), every time the soul looks for Me, she receives a Divine Shade, a Divine Feature, and is reborn in Me as many times, and I AM reborn in her.”  While He was saying this, I was thinking of what He had said, almost surprised, and I said:  ‘Lord, what are You saying?’  And He added:  “Oh, if you knew the Glory – the Taste that the whole of Heaven feels in receiving this note from the earth:  a soul (Luisa) that constantly seeks God, all similar to them.  What is the Life of the Blessed?  What is it that forms It?  Their being reborn continuously in God, and God in them.  This is the saying:  ‘God is ever Old and ever New’.  Nor do they ever feel tired, because they are in continuous attitude of New Life in God.”

12/10/18 – Vol. 12

Effects of the prayers of the souls who are intimate with Jesus.

I was saying to my sweet Jesus: “See, I don’t know how to do anything, nor do I have anything to give You, but I want to give You my trifles. I unite these trifles of mine to the All, as You are, and I ask You for souls. Therefore, as I breathe, my breathing asks You for souls; the beating of my heart, with incessant cries, asks You for souls; the motion of my arms, the blood which circulates in me, the batting of my eyelids, the movements of my lips – are souls that I ask of You. And I ask this united with You, with Your Love and in Your Will, so that everyone may hear my incessant cry within You, always asking for souls.”

Now, as I was saying this and other things, my Jesus moved in my interior and told me: “My daughter (Luisa), how sweet and pleasing to Me, is the prayer of the souls who are intimate with Me! How I (Jesus) feel My hidden Life of Nazareth being repeated – with no outward appearance, without any circle of people, with no sound of bells; completely neglected and alone, to the extent that I was barely known. I kept rising between Heaven and earth, asking for souls – not even a breath or a heartbeat escaped Me, which did not ask for souls. And as I did this, My blast resounded in Heaven, and drew the Love of the Father to give Me souls. This same sound, reverberating in hearts, cried out in a sonorous Voice: ‘Souls!’ How many wonders did I not work during My hidden Life, known only to My Father in Heaven and to My Mother on earth!

The same for the hidden soul (Luisa), who is intimate with Me: as she prays, though no sound is heard on earth, her prayers, like bells, resound more vibrantly in Heaven, to the extent of calling the whole of Heaven to unite Itself with her, and to let Mercy descend upon the earth, which resounding not to the hearing but to the hearts of creatures, may dispose them to convert.”

PSALM 51

51:1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy loving kindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

51:2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

51:3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

51:4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.

51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

51:6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.

51:7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

51:8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.

51:9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

51:11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

51:12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.

51:13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.

51:14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.

51:15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

51:16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.

51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

51:18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

51:19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

History: (Translated by the Felician Sisters)

During the period of November 24 1946 to December 8, 1947, the Blessed Mother appeared to Sister Pierina in a little church in Montichiari, Italy, eleven times.

On the first appearance the Blessed Mother told Sister Pierina She wanted to be known as the Mystical Rose and that an hour of grace should be kept at noon, December 8th, in all the Catholic Churches of the world. The Blessed Mother wanted this to be known through all Italy, and the entire world.

It was November 16, 1947 when Sister Pierina was finishing Her Thanksgiving after Holy Communion when she saw a great light. She then saw a vision of the Blessed Mother as the Mystical Rose.

Sister was so deeply moved by the stunning beauty of Our Lady that she began talking to Her. All of a sudden a gentle force made her kneel down in front of Our Lady. The Blessed Mother spoke these words. “My Son is so greatly offended by the sins of impurity. He is already planning to send the deluge upon the people, for their destruction, but I have asked Him to show mercy, and not send the destruction. So that is why I have appeared, to ask for penance and atonement for the sins of impurity.”

On the 22nd of November, Sister Pierina felt the overwhelming urge to go to church at 4:00. The Mother Superior, four Sisters, and a group of friends accompanied her. They were all saying the Rosary when the Blessed Mother appeared as before.

Again, Our Lady asked for penance. She said, “Penance is nothing more than accepting all our crosses daily willingly. No matter how small, accept them with love.” At this time She told Sister Pierina to come again on December 8th at noon. “This will be my Hour of Grace.” The Sister asked how she was to prepare for this Hour of Grace? To which the Blessed Mother said, “with prayers and penance. Pray the 51st psalm with outstretched arms three times. During the Hour of Grace, many spiritual graces would be granted. The most hard-hearted sinners will be touched by the grace of God.” The Blessed Mother promised that whatever a person asked her for during this Hour of Grace (even in impossible cases) would be granted to them, if it was in accordance with the Will of the Eternal Father.

On the morning of December 8th, people began arriving at the little church at 8:00 in the morning form neighbouring towns. By noon, some 10,000 people had gathered to see the Blessed Mother… In the most gentle and loving voice, Our Lady smiled ad began to speak [to Sister Pierina]: “I am the Immaculate Conception, the Mother of my Beloved Son, Jesus. I want to be known as the Mystical Rose. My wish is that every year on the 8th of December, at noon, an Hour of Grace will be installed. Many spiritual graces and physical blessings will be received by those who pray, undisturbed, during this hour.”

FROM THE BOOK OF HEAVEN

 12/8/22 – Vol. 15

On the Immaculate Conception.

I write to obey, and I offer everything to my sweet Jesus, uniting myself to the sacrifice of His obedience in order to obtain the grace and the strength to do it as He wants.  And now, oh! my Jesus, give me Your Holy Hand and the Light of Your Intelligence, and write together with me.

I was thinking about the great portent of the Immaculate Conception of my Queen and Celestial Mama, and in my interior I heard Him say:  “My daughter (Luisa), the Immaculate Conception of My Beloved Mama was Prodigious and all Marvelous; so much so, that Heaven and earth were astonished and made Feast.  All Three Divine Persons competed among Themselves:  the Father poured out an immense Sea of Power; I, the Son, poured out an infinite Sea of Wisdom, and the Holy Spirit, an immense Sea of Eternal Love, which, merging into one, formed one single Sea; and in the middle of this Sea the Conception of this Virgin was formed, chosen among the chosen.  So, the Divinity administered the substance of this Conception, and this Sea was not only the Center of Life of this Admirable and Singular Creature, but it remained around Her – not only to keep Her defended from anything which might shadow Her, but to give Her, in every instant, New Beauties, New Graces, Power, Wisdom, Love, Privileges, etc.  So, Her little nature was Conceived in the Center of this Sea, and was formed and grew under the influence of these Divine Waves; so much so, that as soon as this Noble and Singular Creature was formed, the Divinity did not want to wait as It usually does with other creatures – It wanted Her Embraces, the return of Her Love, Her Kisses, and to enjoy Her innocent Smiles.  Therefore, as soon as Her Conception was formed, I gave Her the use of Reason, I endowed Her with all sciences, I made Her aware of Our Joys and Our Sorrows with regard to Creation.  Even from the maternal womb, She would come to Heaven, at the Foot of Our Throne, to give Us Her Embraces, the return of Her Love, Her tender Kisses; and throwing Herself into Our Arms, She would smile at Us with such delight of Gratitude and Thanksgiving as to snatch Our Smiles.  Oh! how beautiful it was to see this Innocent and Privileged Creature, enriched with all the Divine Qualities, coming into Our midst, all Love, all Trust, without fear.  In fact, sin alone is what puts distance between Creator and creature, breaking Love, dissolving Trust, and striking fear.  So, She would come into Our midst as Queen who, with Her Love, given by Us, would dominate Us, enrapture Us, put Us in Feast, and capture yet more Love.  And We would let Her do it, enjoying the Love that enraptured Us, and constituting Her Queen of Heaven and earth.

immaculate-conception3gHeaven and earth exulted and made Feast together with Us, having their Queen after so many centuries.  The sun smiled in its light, and considered itself fortunate in having to serve its Queen by giving Her light.  The heavens, the stars, and the whole universe smiled with Joy and made Feast, because they were to delight their Queen, showing Her the Harmony of the spheres and of their beauty.  The plants smiled, which were to nourish their Queen; and the earth too, smiled and felt ennobled in having to provide the residence for its Empress and to be trodden by Her steps.  Only hell cried and felt itself losing strength because of the Dominion of this Sovereign Lady.

But do you know what was the First Act which this Celestial Creature did when She found Herself before Our Throne for the first time?  She recognized that all the evil of man had been the split between his will and that of his Creator; She trembled, and with no delay She bound Her will to the Foot of My Throne, without even wanting to know it.  And my Will bound Itself to Her and constituted Itself the Center of Her life, so much so, that all currents, all relations, all communications opened between Her and Us, and there was no secret which We did not entrust to Her.  This, indeed, was the most Beautiful, the Greatest, the most Heroic Act She did – to lay down Her will at Our Feet; an Act which made Us, as though enraptured, constitute Her Queen of all.  Do you see, then, what it means to bind oneself to My Divine Will and to not know one’s own?

The second Act was to offer Herself for any sacrifice for Love of Us.  The third, to render Us the Honor and the Glory of the whole Creation, which man had taken away from Us by doing his own will.  And even from the maternal womb She cried for Love of Us, in seeing Us offended; and She cried with sorrow over guilty man.  Oh! how these innocent tears moved Us, and hastened the longed for Redemption!  This Queen Dominated Us, Bound Us, and snatched infinite Graces from Us.  She made Us incline so much toward mankind, that We could not resist, nor did We know how to resist Her repeated petitions.  But whence came to Her so much Power, and so much influence over the very Divinity?  Ah! you have understood:  it was the Power of Our Will Acting in Her, which, while Dominating Her, rendered Her Dominator of God Himself.  And besides, how could We resist so innocent a Creature, possessed by the Power and Sanctity of Our Will?  It would be as though resisting Ourselves.  We could see Our Divine Qualities in Her.  The Reflections of Our Sanctity, the Reflections of the Divine Ways, of Our Love, of Our Power, etc., poured over Her like waves; as well as Our Will, which was Her Center, drawing all the Reflections of Our Divine Qualities, and making Itself Crown and Defense of the Divinity dwelling within Her.  If this Immaculate Virgin had not had the Divine Will as Center of Life, all the other Prerogatives and Privileges with which We so enriched Her would have been, in comparison, an absolute nothing.  This is what confirmed and preserved for Her so many Privileges; even more, It multiplied new ones in every instant.

Here, then, is the reason why We constituted Her Queen of all; because when We operate, We do it with Reason, Wisdom and Justice:  She never gave life to Her human will, but Our Will was always intact in Her.  How could We say to another creature:  ‘You are Queen of the heavens, of the sun, of the stars, etc.’, if instead of having Our Will as Dominion, she were dominated by her human will?  All of the elements, the heavens, the sun, the earth, would have withdrawn from the Regime and Dominion of this creature.  All would have cried out in their mute language:  ‘We do not want her, we are superior to her, because we have never withdrawn from your eternal Volition – as You created us, so we are’.  So would the sun have cried out with its light, the stars with their glittering, the sea with its waves, and everything else.  On the contrary, as soon as they all felt the Dominion of this excelling Virgin who, almost as their Sister, never wanted to know Her own will, but only that of God, not only did they make Feast, but they felt honored to have their Queen, and they ran around Her to form Her Cortege and to pay obsequies to Her – the moon, by placing itself as footstool at Her feet; the stars as crown, the sun as diadem, the Angels as servants, and men as though in waiting.  Everyone – everyone paid Her honor and rendered their obsequies to Her.  There is no honor and glory which cannot be given to Our Will – whether acting within Us, in Its own Center, or dwelling in the creature. Immaculate Conception 4

But do you know what was the first act which this noble Queen did when, coming out of the maternal womb, She opened Her eyes to the light of this low world?  As She was born, the Angels sang lullabies to the Celestial Baby, and She remained enraptured; Her beautiful soul went out of Her little body, accompanied by angelic cohorts, and went around Heaven and earth, gathering all the Love that God had spread throughout the whole Creation; and penetrating into Heaven, She came to the Foot of Our Throne, offered Us the return of the Love of all Creation, and pronounced Her first ‘thank You’ in the name of all.  Oh! how happy We felt in hearing the ‘thank You’ of this Little Baby Queen.  And We confirmed in Her all Graces, all Gifts, such as to make Her surpass all other creatures together.  Then, throwing Herself into Our Arms, She delighted with Us, swimming in the Sea of all Contentments, being embellished with New Beauty, with New Light and with New Love.  She pleaded once again for mankind, praying Us in tears to let the Eternal Word descend in order to save Her brothers.  But as She was doing this, Our Will let Her know that She should descend to the earth, and immediately She left Our Contentments and Joys, and departed, in order to do… what?  Our Will.  What Powerful Magnet Our Will was, dwelling on earth in this Newborn Queen!  No longer did the earth appear alien to Us; We no longer felt like striking it, making use of Our Justice.  We had the Power of Our Will which, in this Innocent Child, blocked Our Arms, smiled at Us from the earth, and turned Justice into Graces and sweet Smile; so much so, that unable to resist this sweet enchantment, the Eternal Word hastened His course.  Oh, Prodigy of My Divine Will! – to You everything is due, through You everything is accomplished, and there is no greater Prodigy than My Divine Will dwelling in the creature.”

FROM THE VIRGIN MARY IN THE KINGDOM OF THE DIVINE WILL

DAY ONE

You must know that I knew my human will only to keep it sacrificed in homage to My Creator. My life was all of Divine Will; from the first instant of My Conception, I was molded, warmed and placed into Its Light, which purified my human seed with Its power, in such a way that I was conceived without original sin. Therefore, if My Conception was spotless and so glorious as to form the honor of the Divine Family, it was only because the Omnipotent Fiat poured Itself upon My seed, and so I was conceived Pure and Holy. If the Divine Will had not poured Itself upon My seed more than a tender mother, in order to prevent the effects of original sin, I would have encountered the sad destiny of the other creatures – that of being conceived with original sin. Therefore, the primary cause was, entirely, the Divine Will; to It be Honor, Glory, Thanksgiving, for My having been conceived without original sin.

 

Now, child of My Heart, listen to your Mama: banish your human will; content yourself with dying rather than concede one act of life to it. Your Celestial Mama would have been content with dying thousands and thousands of times, rather than do one single act of My will; don’t you want to imitate Me? Ah! If you keep it sacrificed in Honor of your Creator, the Divine Will will take the first step in your soul, and you will feel molded with a Celestial Aura, purified and warmed, in such a way as to feel the seeds of your passions being annihilated; and you will feel placed in the First Steps of the Kingdom of the Divine Will. Therefore, be attentive; if you are faithful in listening to Me, I will guide you, I will lead you by the hand along the interminable Ways of the Divine Fiat; I will keep you sheltered under My Blue Mantel, and you will be My Honor, My Glory, My Victory as well as yours.

The soul:

Immaculate Virgin, take me on your Maternal Knees, and be my Mama. With Your holy Hands, take possession of my will; purify it, mold it, warm it with the touch of Your Maternal Fingers. Teach me to Live only of Divine Will.

Little Sacrifice:

Today, to honor Me, from the morning, and in all of your actions, you will place your will into My Hands, telling Me: “My Mama, You Yourself offer the sacrifice of my will to my Creator.”

Ejaculatory Prayer:

My Mama, enclose the Divine Will in my soul, that It may take Its Prime Place, and form in it Its Throne and Dwelling.

Saint Nicholas

SAINT NICHOLAS

St. NicholasBishop and Confessor


DOUBLE / WHITE
The great popularity of St. Nicholas in both the East and the West is proved by the numerous churches dedicated to him and the frequent use of Nicholas as a Christian name. Yet all that we know for certain about him is that he was made archbishop of Myra in Asia Minor, where he died in the year 324 A.D. Many of the legends concerning St. Nicholas had to do with his abounding charity and extraordinary miracles, and particularly his Christ-like love for children, so that in Catholic countries he is said to make an annual visit on his feast day to bring presents to little ones.

INTROIT Eccli. 45:30
The Lord established a covenant of peace with him, and made him a prince, that the dignity of priesthood should be his forever.
Ps. 131:1 O Lord, remember David and all his meekness.

EPISTLE Heb. 13:7-17
Brethren: Remember your prelates who have spoken the word of God to you: whose faith follow, considering the end of their conversation, Jesus Christ, yesterday, and today: and the same for ever. Be not led away with various and strange doctrines. For it is best that the heart be established with grace, not with meats: which have not profited those that walk in them. We have an altar whereof they have no power to eat who serve the tabernacle. For the bodies of those beasts whose blood is brought into the holies by the high priest for sin are burned without the camp. Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people by his own blood, suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore to him without the camp, bearing his reproach. For, we have not here a lasting city: but we seek one that is to come. By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise always to God, that is to say, the fruit of lips confessing to his name. And do not forget to do good and to impart: for by such sacrifices God’s favour is obtained. Obey your prelates and be subject to them. For they watch as being to render an account of your souls.

GOSPEL Matt. 25:14-23
At that time, Jesus spoke this parable to His disciples, “A man going into a far country called his servants and delivered to them his goods; And to one he gave five talents, and to another two, and to another one, to every one according to his proper ability: and immediately he took his journey. And he that had received the five talents went his way and traded with the same and gained other five. And in like manner he that had received the two gained other two. But he that had received the one, going his way, digged into the earth and hid his lord’s money. But after a long time the lord of those servants came and reckoned with them. And he that had received the five talents coming, brought other five talents, saying: ‘Lord, thou didst deliver to me five talents. Behold I have gained other five over and above.’ His lord said to him: ‘Well done, good and faithful servant, because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things. Enter thou into the joy of thy lord.’ And he also that had received the two talents came and said: ‘Lord, thou deliverest two talents to me. Behold I have gained other two.’ His lord said to him: ‘Well done, good and faithful servant: because thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will place thee over many things. Enter thou into the joy of thy lord.’ ”
