JESUS: “WOE TO THOSE ARE OPPOSED OR MIGHT PLACE OBSTACLES”

ECHO THE PRAYERS OF LUISA TO THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta,

The Little Daughter of the Divine Will

 VOLUME 24

 August 2, 1928

How it is absolute Will of God for these writings to come out.  The work of Redemption and the Kingdom of the Divine Fiat are linked together.  The field of the Divine Will.  Explanations.

 

I was feeling all concerned because of these blessed writings.  The thought of letting them come out is always a torment for me; and then, the so many incidents that happen—now one way, now another….  Many times this makes me think that maybe it is not Will of God that they be published, otherwise so many things would not happen.  Who knows whether the Lord wants my sacrifice in words, but with facts He wants to spare me a sorrow so great, that only the thought that I might oppose His Divine Will makes me say:  “Fiat! Fiat!”

But while I was thinking of this, my always lovable Jesus moved in my interior and told me:  “My daughter, the Will of God that the Writings of My Divine Will come to light is absolute, and as many incidents as may occur, It will triumph of everything.  And even if it should take years and years, It will know how to dispose everything so that Its absolute Will be fulfilled.  The time in which they will come to light is relative and conditional upon when creatures dispose themselves to receive a good so great, and upon those who must occupy themselves with being its criers, and make the sacrifice so as to bring the new era of peace, the new Sun that will dispel all the clouds of evils.

“If you knew how many graces and lights I keep prepared for those whom I see disposed to occupy themselves with them!  They will be the first to feel the balm, the light, the life of My Fiat.  Look at Me—how I keep prepared in My hands the clothes, the food, the ornaments, the gifts for those who must occupy themselves with them.  But I am looking to see who the true disposed ones are, so as to invest them with the prerogatives that are needed for a work so holy, that I so much love and want them to do.

“But I must also say to you:  ‘Woe to those who are opposed or might place obstacles.’ 

“You, however, do not move anything—not even one comma of what is needed to prepare the Kingdom of My Divine Will, so that, on My part and on your part, by doing what is needed to give this great good to creatures, nothing may be lacking on our part, so that, as soon as the creatures dispose themselves, they may find everything in place and what is needed. 

“Did I not do the same in the work of Redemption?  I prepared everything, I did and suffered everything; and in spite of the so many adverse incidents that I saw—My very Apostles vacillating, doubtful, timid, to the point of running away from Me when they saw Me in the hands of the enemies; being left alone; not having the good of seeing any fruit while I was on earth—in spite of all this, I neglected nothing of what was needed for the complete work of Redemption, so that, when they would open their eyes to look at what I had done, they would find all the good in order to be redeemed, and nothing might be lacking to them in order to receive the fruit of My coming upon earth.

“My daughter, the Kingdom of My Redemption and that of My Will are so linked together that they hold hands and almost have the same lot because of human ingratitude; but one who must give and form a good so great should not pay attention to this, nor stop.  It is necessary that we do complete works, so that nothing may be lacking on our part, and so that, as they dispose themselves, they may find everything that is needed to receive the Kingdom of My Will.”

After this, I continued my acts in the Divine Volition, but I kept feeling oppressed; and my sweet Jesus, making Himself seen again, seemed to hold three or four Priests tightly in His arms; and holding them against His breast as if He wanted to infuse in them the life of His Divine Heart, He told me:  “My daughter, look at how tightly I hold in My arms those who must occupy themselves with the Writings on My adorable Will.  As soon as I see some little disposition in them to occupy themselves with them, I take them in My arms to infuse in them what is needed for a work so holy.  Therefore, courage, do not fear.”

Then, after this, He made Himself seen in my interior.  In the depth of it I saw a most extensive field—not of earth, but of clearest crystal.  Every two or three steps in this field there was Baby Jesus surrounded by a light.  Oh! how beautiful this field looked with so many Babes.  Each of them had His own sun, radiant and beautiful—all for Himself.

I was surprised at seeing so many Jesuses in the depth of my soul, each of them all intent on enjoying His own sun; and my sweet Jesus, seeing my surprise, told me:  “My daughter, do not be surprised.  This field that you see is My Divine Will, and the many Jesuses you see are My Truths regarding My Fiat.  In each of them there is a life of Mine that, forming its radiant sun, surrounds itself with light so as to spread its endless rays to make known that I Myself am the springing fount of My Truths.

“See, then, how many Lives of Mine I have put out; as many truths as I have manifested to you, so many are My Lives that I have put out with the very source of the sun—not just a simple light.  And I have remained in their midst so that all might feel the creative strength and virtue in these truths; and I love each of them so much—as much as I love Myself.  And whoever would not want to recognize My Life, My sun, My creative virtue in these truths about My Fiat is either blind or has lost the good of the intellect.  Also, it should be of great consolation for you to possess within yourself as many Lives of Mine for as many truths as I have manifested to you.

“Therefore, recognize the great good—greater treasure I could not entrust to you; and do not be concerned—the sun will know how to make its way, and since it is light, no one will be able to prevent its step.”

Then He added with a more tender accent:  “My daughter, Our Adorable Majesty loves the creature so much that We put Our Life at her disposal to make of her another similar to Us.  We place Our Life as a model before the creature, so that, by modeling herself on Our model, she may copy Our Life and form facsimiles of her Creator.  This is why We use many stratagems, finesses of love, and We give surprising graces—to see Ourselves copied in the creature.  And only then shall We be content, when—as Our Love, united with Our Divine Will, conquers the creature—We will be able to recognize Our Image and Likeness in her, just as she came out of Our creative hands.”

The Soul in the Divine Will Can Make A Living Eucharist of Her Being

ECHO THE PRAYERS OF LUISA TO THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta,

The Little Daughter of the Divine Will

 Volume 11 

December 17, 1914

How the soul in the Divine Will can make a living Eucharist of her being.

 Continuing in my usual state and being very afflicted because of the privations of Jesus, after much suffering He came, making Himself seen in all my poor being. It seemed to me as if I were the garment of Jesus. Then, breaking the silence, He told me: “My daughter, you too can form the hosts and consecrate them mystically. Do you see the garments that cover Me in the Sacrament? They are the accidents of the bread from which the Host is made. The Life which exists in this Host is my Body, my Blood and my Divinity. My supreme Will is the act which contains this Life. This Will develops the Love, the reparation, the immolation and all the rest that I do in the Sacrament. The Sacrament never moves one point from my Volition. There is nothing that comes from Me which is not led by my Volition.

Here is how you too can form the Host. The host is material and totally human; you too have a material body and a human will. This body and will of yours – as long as you keep them pure, upright and far away from any shadow of sin – are the accidents, the veil in order to consecrate Me and make Me live hidden in you. But this is not enough; it would be like the host without consecration – my Life is needed. My Life is composed of Sanctity, Love, Wisdom, Power, etc., but the engine of all is my Will. So, after you prepared the host, you have to make your will die in it; you must cook it well, so that it may not rise again. Then you have to let my Will permeate all your being; and my Will, which contains all my Life, will form the true and perfect consecration. Therefore, there will be no more life for human thought, but only for the thought of my Volition, which will consecrate my Wisdom inside your mind; no more life for what is human – weakness, inconstancy – because my Will will form the consecration of the Divine Life, of fortitude, of firmness, and of all that I am. So, each time you let your will flow into Mine, I will renew the consecration of your desires, and of all that you are and that you can do. I will continue my Life in you as if in a living Host – not a dead one, like the hosts without Me.

But this is not all. In the consecrated Hosts, in the pyxes, in the Tabernacles, everything is dead – mute; not the sensitivity of a heartbeat, not a rush of love which may return my great love. If I didn’t wait for hearts in order to give Myself to them, I would be very unhappy; I would remain defrauded of my Love, and my Sacramental Life would remain without purpose. Though I tolerate this in the Tabernacles, I would not tolerate it in living Hosts. In the Sacrament I want to be fed with my own food: the soul will take possession of my Will, my Love, my prayers, my reparations, my sacrifices; she will give them to Me as if they were her own things, and I will nourish Myself. The soul will unite with Me, pricking up her ears in order to hear what I am doing, and to do it together with Me; so, as she keeps repeating my own acts, she will give Me her food, and I will be happy. Only in these living Hosts will I find the compensation for my loneliness, my starvation and all that I suffer in the Tabernacles.”

THE BEAUTY OF LITTLENESS

ECHO THE PRAYERS OF LUISA TO THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta,

The Little Daughter of the Divine Will

November 10, 1923 Volume 16

 The beauty of littleness.  God performs the greatest works in the little ones:  for Redemption He used the littleness of the Most Holy Virgin; for the Fiat Voluntas Tua, the littleness of Luisa.

 I was abandoning all of myself in the arms of my sweet Jesus, and while I was praying, I saw my soul as so very little, but of extreme littleness; and I thought to myself:  ‘How little I am.  Jesus was right in telling me that I was the littlest of all.  I would really like to know whether I am the littlest among all.’  Now, while I was thinking this, my always lovable Jesus, moving in my interior, showed me how He took this little one in His arms, and squeezed her tightly to His Heart, and she would let Jesus do whatever He wanted with her.  And He told me:  “My dear little one, I have chosen you little, because the little ones let one do with them whatever he wants.  They do not walk by themselves, but let themselves be guided; even more, they are afraid to place one foot on their own.  If they receive gifts, feeling incapable of keeping them, they place them on the lap of their mama.  The little ones are stripped of everything, nor do they care about whether they are rich or poor; they are concerned with nothing.  Oh! how beautiful the tender age is – full of grace, of beauty and of freshness.  Therefore, the greater is the work I want to do in a soul, the littler I choose her.  I like childlike freshness and beauty very much; I like it so much that I preserve these souls in the littleness of the nothingness from which they came.  I let nothing of their own enter into them, so as not to let them lose their littleness, and therefore preserve the divine freshness and beauty from which they came.”

On hearing this, I said:  ‘Jesus, my Love, it seems to me that I am so very bad, and this is why I am so little; and You are saying that You love me very much because I am little?  How can this be?’  And Jesus, again:  “My little one, badness cannot enter the true little ones.  Do you know when evil, when growth begins to enter?  When one’s own will begins to enter.  As it enters, the creature begins to fill herself and to live of herself; the All goes out of the littleness of the creature, and it seems to her that her littleness becomes greater – but, greatness to be cried over.  Since God does not live completely in her, she moves away from her beginning, dishonors her origin, loses the light, the beauty, the sanctity, the freshness of her Creator.  She seems to grow before herself and maybe before men; but before Me – oh, how she decreases!  She may even become great, but she will never be my beloved little one – one whom, taken by love for her, I fill with Myself, that she may remain as I created her, and I make of her the greatest, whom no one will be able to equal.

I did so with my Celestial Mama.  Among all generations, She is the littlest, because Her will never entered into Her as acting, but always my Eternal Will; and this not only kept Her little, beautiful, fresh, as She had come out of Us, but made Her the greatest of all.  Oh! how beautiful She was, little in Herself, but great and superior to all by virtue of Ourselves.  And only because of Her littleness was She lifted up to the height of Mother of the One who formed Her.  So, as you see, all the good of man is in doing my Will; all the evil is in doing his own.  Therefore, in order to come to redeem man, I chose my Mother because She was little, and I used Her as channel in order to let all the goods and fruits of Redemption descend upon mankind. Now, so that my Will might be known, and Heaven might be opened to let my Will descend upon earth and reign on it as It does in Heaven, I had to choose another little one among all generations.  Since this is the greatest work I want to do – to restore man in his origin, from which he came, to open to him that Divine Will which he rejected, to open my arms to him to receive him once again into the womb of my Will – my infinite wisdom calls the littlest one out of nothing.  It was just that she be little:  if I placed a little one at the head of Redemption, I had to place another little one at the head of the Fiat Voluntas Tua on earth as it is in Heaven.  Between two little ones I was to enclose the purpose of the creation of man – I was to realize my designs upon him:  through one, I was to redeem him, wash him of his ugliness with my Blood, and give him forgiveness; through the other one, I was to make him return to his beginning, to his origin, to the lost nobility, to the bonds of my Will broken by him, admitting him once again to the smile of my Eternal Will, kissing each other and live one within the other.  This alone was the purpose of the creation of man, and what I have established no one will be able to oppose.  Centuries upon centuries will go by – just as in Redemption, so also in this; but man will return into my arms as he was created by Me.  But in order to do this, first I have to choose the one who must be the first to live life in my Eternal Will, bind in her all the relations of Creation, and live with her with no split of wills; rather, with her will and Ours as one.  From here the necessity that she be the littlest which We issue in Creation – so that, in seeing herself as so little, she may shun her will; even more, she may bind it so tightly to Ours as to never do her will; and though little, she may live together with Us, from the blowing of that breath with which We created man.  Our Will preserves her fresh and beautiful; she forms Our smile, Our amusement, and We do with her whatever We want.  Oh! how happy she is; and enjoying her littleness and her happy destiny, she will cry for her brothers and will occupy herself with nothing else but compensating Us, for all and for each one, of all the wrongs they do to Us by withdrawing from Our Will.  The tears of one who lives in Our Will will be powerful; more so, since she wants nothing but what We Ourselves want; and after the first channel of Redemption, through her We will open the second one of the Fiat Voluntas Tua on earth as it is in Heaven.”

On hearing this, I said:  ‘My Love and my All, tell me, who will this fortunate little one be?  Oh! how I would like to know her.’  And He, immediately:  “What? Have you not understood who she is?  It is you, my little one.  I have told you many times that you are the little one, and this is why I love you.”  But as He was saying this, I felt as though I was being transported outside of myself, into a most pure light, in which one could see all generations, as though divided into two wings – one on the right and the other on the left of the throne of God.  At the head of one wing there was the August Queen Mama, from whom descended all the goods of Redemption.  Oh, how beautiful was Her littleness!  Marvelous, prodigious littleness:  little and powerful, little and great, little and Queen; little, with everyone hanging upon Her littleness, while She disposes of everything, rules over all, and only because She is little, She enfolds the Word within Her littleness, making Him descend from Heaven to earth, to let Him die for love of men.  At the head of the other wing one could see another little one, and – I say it trembling and to obey – she was the one whom Jesus had called His little daughter of the Divine Will.  And my sweet Jesus, placing Himself in the middle of these two wings, between the two little ones who were at the head of them, with one hand took mine, and with the other that of the Queen Mama, and He joined them together, saying:  “My little daughters, hold each other’s hand before Our Throne, and embrace the Eternal Divine Majesty in your little arms.  To you alone, because you are little, is it given to embrace the Eternal One, the Infinite One, and to enter into Him.  And if the first little one snatched Redemption from the Love of the Eternal One, so may the second, her hand held by the first, be helped by Her to snatch from the Eternal Love the Fiat Voluntas Tua on earth as it in Heaven.”

Now, who can say what happened?  I have no words to be able to express myself.  I can only say that I remained more humiliated and confused, and almost like a fussy little girl, I wanted my Jesus in order to tell Him of my fears, of my doubts.  And I prayed that He would cast all these things away from me, as I feared that the mere thought of them was a subtle pride, and that He would give me the grace to really love Him and to do His Most Holy Will in everything.  Then, my always lovable Jesus, coming back again, made Himself seen inside of me, and my person served as though to cover Him inside of me.  And without letting me speak, He told me:  “My poor little one, what do you fear?  Courage, I am the One who will do everything in my little daughter; you will do nothing but follow me faithfully, won’t you?  You are right that you are too little and can do nothing, but I will do everything in you.  Don’t you see how I am within you, and you are nothing but the shadow that covers Me?  I am the One who will cross within you the eternal and unending boundaries of my Will; I, the One who will embrace all generations in order to bring them, together with your shadow, to the feet of the Eternal One, so that the two wills, the human and the Divine, may kiss each other, may smile at each other, and may no longer look at each other like strangers, being separated, scowling at each other, but one may be fused within the other, forming one single Will.  It is the power of your Jesus that must do this; you must do nothing but adhere.  I know, I know that you are nothing and can do nothing, and this is why you afflict yourself; but it is the strength of my arm that wants and can operate, and I like to operate great things in the littlest ones.  And besides, the life of my Will has already been on earth; it is not completely new, although it was as though in passing.  It existed in my inseparable and dear Mama.  If the life of my Will had not been in Her, I, Eternal Word, could not have descended from Heaven; I would have lacked the way through which to descend, the room into which to enter, the humanity with which to cover my Divinity, the food to nourish Myself.  I would have lacked everything, because all other things are not suitable for Me.  But by finding my Will in my beloved Mama, I found my very own Heaven, my joys, my contentments.  At most, I exchanged my dwelling – from Heaven to earth – but as for the rest, I changed nothing:  that which I had in Heaven I found on earth by virtue of my Will possessed by Her, and therefore, with all love, I descended into Her to take on human flesh.

Then, my Will had Its Life on earth in my Humanity, by virtue of which I formed the Redemption.  Not only this, but by virtue of my Will, I laid Myself over all the works of the human generations, sealing them with my divine acts, and I beseeched my Father not only to redeem man, but that, at the appropriate time, man might win the favor of Our Will, as when he was created, so as to live according to the purpose wanted by Us:  that the Will of Heaven and that of the earth be one.  Therefore, everything was done by Me:  the plane of Redemption and that of the Fiat Voluntas Tua on earth as it is in Heaven.  It would not have been a work worthy of Me had I not rehabilitated man in everything, as he was created.  It would be a work half-done, not whole, and your Jesus does not know how to do incomplete works; at the most, I wait centuries to give the complete good prepared by Me.  Therefore, don’t you want to be with Me in giving man the work which I completed with my coming upon earth?  So, be attentive and faithful; do not fear, I will always keep you little so as to be able to complete more my designs upon you.”

BOOK OF HEAVEN

ECHO THE PRAYERS OF LUISA TO THE MOST HOLY TRINITY
Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta,
The Little Daughter of the Divine Will

 

VOLUME 19

 August 27, 1926

Jesus gives the title to the Book about His Will.

 As I was in my usual state, my always lovable Jesus made me see the reverend father who must occupy himself with the printing of the writings on the adorable Will of God.  And Jesus, placing Himself near him, said to him:  “My son, the title you will give to the book you will print about my Will is this:  ‘The Kingdom of my Divine Will in the midst of creatures.  Book of Heaven.  The call of the creature to the order, the place and the purpose for which he was created by God’.  See, I want the title also to correspond to the great work of my Will.  I want the creature to comprehend that his place, assigned to him by God, is in my Will, and until he enters into It, he will be without place, without order, without purpose; he will be an intruder in the Creation, with no right at all, and therefore he will go wandering without peace, without inheritance.  And I, moved to compassion for him, will cry out to him continuously:  ‘Enter into your place, come into the order, come to take your inheritance – to live in your house.  Why do you want to live in a foreign house?  Why do you want to occupy a land that is not yours?  And because it is not yours, you live unhappy, and you are the servant and the laughing-stock of all created things.  All things created by Me, because they remain in their place, are in order and in perfect harmony, with all the fullness of their goods, assigned to them by God.  You alone want to be unhappy – but of a voluntary unhappiness.  Therefore come to your place – it is there that I call you and await you’.  Therefore, he or she who will offer to make my Will known, will be my spokesperson, and I will entrust to them the secrets of Its Kingdom.”

Then, after this, He showed the whole Creation – how all created things remain in their place, wanted by God, and therefore in perfect order and in perfect harmony among themselves.  And because they remain in their place, the Supreme Will maintains their existence whole, beautiful, fresh and ever new; and order brings communal happiness and universal strength to all.  What enchantment to see the order, the harmony of all Creation!  And Jesus, resuming His speaking, added:  “My daughter, how beautiful are Our works – they are Our honor and Our perennial glory.  All of them remain at their place, and each created thing fulfills its office perfectly.  Man alone is Our dishonor in Our creative work, because by withdrawing from Our Will, he walks upside down, with his head down on the earth and his feet up in the air.  What disorder! What disorder!  It is disgusting to see him.  By walking with his head upside down, he crawls on the earth, he becomes all upset, he transforms himself.  His sight lacks the necessary span to be able to look; he cannot move around in space in order to know things, nor defend himself if his enemy is behind his shoulders; and he cannot go too far, because – poor one – he has to drag himself with his head instead of walking, because the office of walking belongs to the feet, while that of the head is to dominate.  So, doing his own will is the true and perfect tumble of man, and the disorder of the human family.  This is why I care so much that my Will be known – so that he may return to his place, no longer dragging himself with his head upside down, but walking on his feet; no longer forming my dishonor and his, but my honor and his.  Look, yourself:  do creatures not look ugly, in seeing them walk with their heads on the ground?  Don’t you too feel sorry in seeing them so disordered?”

I looked, and I saw the heads down and the feet up in the air.  Jesus disappeared, and I remained looking at this ugly scene of the human generations; and from the heart I prayed that His Will may be known.
